Old foes set to collide as Singh Sabha and Old Windsor reach 2022 League Cup final
PICTURE: The 2022 League Cup final will be contested between Singh Sabha and Old Windsor on Saturday 2nd May at Burnham Football Club (2pm).
The 2022 League Cup final will be contested between Singh Sabha and Old Windsor after both teams won their respective semi finals ties on Saturday.
Singh Sabha are the current holders of the League Cup having won the last final in 2019 (competition not completed in 2020 and 2021 because of the Coronavirus) and remain on course to retain the trophy following a 3-2 victory against Iver Heath.
Iver Heath took the lead early on in the tie, played at Stoke Poges, but a Dillon Baines brace and a goal from Pritpal Raju gave the holders a clear advantage heading into the break. The Heath put in a spirited performance in the second half and an own goal halved the deficit but, Singh Sabha held on to book their place in the final.
Old Windsor have never lifted the League Cup silverware but will get the opportunity after a 3-0 win against Baylis United in the second semi final, played at Eton Wick.
Goals from James Watson and Rory Campbell gave them the advantage at half-time, and Harry Farnan struck in the second period to ensure there was no back for lower-league, Baylis.
The League Cup final between Singh Sabha and Old Windsor will take place on Saturday 2 May at Burnham Football Club with a 2pm kick off.
Kane Jones was the star on show when his hat-trick helped Britwell to a 7-1 win at KS Gryf and to regain top spot in the Premier Division. Steffen Bennett scored twice in the success with further goals from Jermaine Payne and Sean Robinson.
The win means Britwell are now three points cleat at the top although second-placed Singh Sabha have a game in hand, whilst Gryf missed the opportunity to take the lead in the title race and remain in third place.

Southcote fired themselves back into the race for promotion from Division One after a 2-1 success at Chalvey Sports A, who remain in third but now just a single point ahead of their victors. The Southcote goals came either side of the break from Connor Paxford and then substitute Earl Amagio.
Frontline Reserves’ resurgence continued with a fourth straight league win, beating Sandhurst Town 4-1 at home. The Sandhurst goal came from Phillip Ollive but, his team were reduced to 10 men when Harry Gray was dismissed.
Old Windsor Reserves still have an outside chance of winning the title this season and cut the gap on runaway leaders Harts Of Bracknell to 10 points with a 3-0 win at Eton Wick. A goal from Chris Atkins gave The O’s a narrow lead at half-time, and the points were sealed when both Liam Spires and Bartek Lasicki found the back of the net after the break.
Stoke Poges consolidated second position in Group B of the Challenge Cup after a 21-0 victory over Riverside, ending their chances of reaching the knock-out stages.
Group A in the Challenge Cup resumes this Wednesday when Britwell entertain Winkfield Reserves - both teams currently have a 100 per-cent record in the competition - and Harts Of Bracknell host Eton Wick (6pm KOs).
