HOLDERS Bromham will face Lion & Fiddle in the final of this season’s Gooding Accounts-sponsored Subsidiary Cup in the Chippenham & District Sunday League after seeing off respective opponents Sporting Box and Brunel in the semi-finals.

Bromham, courtesy of a 2-1 win away at Sporting Box, will return to Meadow Lane in Westbury on May 5 where they will bid to become the first team to win back-to-back titles since North Bradley in 1990 and 91.

Luke Child gave Bromham a half-time lead, which was doubled midway through the second half when Ed Summers lashed home a stunning 25-yard effort.

James Weymouth pulled a goal back for Sporting Box to set up tense finish, but in the end, it was just a consolation as Bromham held on for victory.

Meanwhile, Lion & Fiddle overcame Brunel 4-2 to set up what promises to be a thrilling final against the defending champions.

Lion led 2-0 at the interval after goals from Tom Blackman and Jordan Pinder. Brunel rallied after the break, with Josh Dolman heading home to halve the deficit before Josh Legg bagged an equaliser. Pinder regained the lead for Lion, though, and Kieran Ramsey added a fourth to seal their place in the final.

Division One

A 2-0 defeat against Melksham-based rivals FC Libby has left New Inn Wacker with a mountain to climb if they are going to claim runners-up spot.

After beating Kingfisher 2-0 last Thursday night courtesy of a Steve Badger brace and Marc Pearce penalty save, New Inn fluffed their lines in the local derby where a Sam Robinson double saw Libby triumph.

Faded moved into second on Thursday following their 6-0 success at home to Brunel.

With top scorer Zack Manna between the sticks, Faded had the new-look partnership of Billal Karmouni and Dan Jones up front, and it was the former who put them 1-0 up.

Jones then stole the show as he netted a first-half treble to put Faded 4-0 ahead at the break. Ashley Poms added number five before Karmouni completed the scoring with his second of the night.

Sutton Benger’s final league match will go down as the thriller as they and hosts The Foresters Arms fought out a thrilling 4-4 draw.

James Worsley and Tom Robinson put Foresters ahead before Matt White got Benger back in the game.

Matt Bartlett reclaimed the lead for Benger, only for Tom Robinson to tie the scores at 4-4 with a sublime 45-yard strike.

Kingfisher and Fox & Hounds also shared eight goals and the points as the latter came from behind on three occasions to claim a 4-4 draw.

Ed Baldwin put the Fishermen ahead, but goals from Darrell Hitchcock and Jayson Stokes saw Fox & Hounds lead 2-1 before Richie Bolter levelled matters prior to half-time.

Luke Carr scored direct from a corner to hand the lead back to the Fishermen, a second from Stokes made it 3-3, only for Carr to bag his second of the morning. Back came Hounds, though, and an Iyke Ichiebuka penalty meant it ended honours even at 4-4.

Division Two

OLD Road and Gloucester Conservative concluded their league programmes, with a 5-0 victory for the former meaning they could end the campaign as high as third.
