HUMBLEDON and Plains Farm completed their memorable season with a perfect record of 20 wins in 20 Premier Division games.

The FA Carlsberg Sunday Cup winners finished off their campaign with two victories against closest rivals Farringdon SC to finish nine points clear at the top.

And Humbledon also picked up the Joe Holborn Memorial Trophy, thumping Washington River Bar 5-1 in the final, thanks largely to Michael Coghlan’s hat-trick.

This cup is close to the hearts of the Plains Farm squad with local legend Joe Holborn playing his best footballing days for the team. Captain-for-the-day Shields, who was Joe’s close friend, marked the occasion with a well-taken double, with Daniel Hill replying late on.

Plains Farm wrapped up the title with their first win over Farringdon SC, 5-1 away from home.

Chris Winn made the breakthrough with his 22nd league goal, becoming the division’s top marksman, then Steven Stewart brilliantly set up Aaron Croft for 2-0.

Ash Davis finished another good move before Farringdon rallied as Jordan Thompson fired home, but Davis bagged two more cracking strikes to clinch a tremendous hat-trick.

The return saw James Fairley, Coghlan, with a fantastic 30-yarder, and Paul Kane seal a 3-1 victory, with Taylor replying.

The First Division’s final match was an entertaining affair, SR Dons edging it 1-0 at Silksworth thanks to a stunning James Miller effort. Kristian Tyson pulled the strings in vain for the hosts.
