ASHINGTON RAOB booked a final place after a 2-1 win over Stakeford Half Moon in the ES Johnson Challenge Cup yesterday.

IN the Lewin Cup, Bomarsund Social Club beat Red Row Brick Club by the odd goal in seven to make progress to the semi-final.
Sean Palmer (two) and Adam Shanks were on target for the Brick, but Bomarsund bettered that with a brace from Jamie Thompson and goals from Kris Grey and Phil Park.
AMBLE Pier 81 maintained their 100 per cent league record in Division One, but had to survive a scare along the way.
