THE past two weekends saw about four Vale of Glamorgan Association Football League Finals take place.

On Friday, April 22, in the Year 8 final for the Billy Butlin Cup, Barry Town United beat Island Marine Blues 4-0.

On Sunday, April 24, in the Year 9 final for the Harry Gratton Cup, Cogan Coronation Juniors beat Sully Sports Reds 3-1. The Vale of Glamorgan Association Football League would like to thank Gavin Chesterfield and the Gratton family for presenting the winners with the trophies.

What should’ve been the final Sunday of finals on May 1, started with another Cogan Coronation Juniors versus Sully Sports final, this time in the Year 10 age group for the Steve Williams Trophy.

The match was being edged by Cogan who managed to get two goals in the first half to take a 2-0 start into the second half. A further two unanswered goals in the second were enough for Cogan Coronation Juniors to lift the Steve Williams Trophy.

The Cogan goal scorers were Louis Crook, Jordan Jones, Will Parsons and Logan Newcombe.

In the afternoon the traditional last cup match took penultimate spot this year with Cardiff Airport – crowned Premier Division Champions on Thursday, April 28, after a 6-1 win over Dinas Powys Athletic – taking on Wenvoe Arms for the Barry Cup.

In an early sign of a possible war of attrition like the Supporters Cup Final, Wenvoe were forced into an unforced substitution due to a player being injured. Thankfully this was the only injury of the match.

As with the morning, a two goal cushion saw the tie poised as 2-0 at half-time with Cardiff Airport having the lead. Wenvoe didn’t bow their heads and fought back into the game levelling it with two Jacob Santos goals in the second half; the second with 15 minutes left on the clock.

Cardiff Airport were under pressure but another attack with seven minutes to go saw them net their third – which proved to be the winner. Cardiff Airport’s goals were scored by Liam Davies (with a brace) and Mike Hall.

Now with two trophies in the bag, Cardiff Airport visit Treforest on Wednesday, May 4 to play Trebanog in the final of the SWFA Intermediate Cup to claim a treble.

As with the tradition of the Barry Cup final, a Man of the Match is awarded the Brian Riseborough Golden Boot and this year, Theo Richards of Cardiff Airport was the worthy recipient.

The delayed ASRS Cup Final is Sunday, May 15, at Jenner Park with kick-off at 2.15pm between Dinas Powys Athletic and Penarth Town.
