The KB Tyres & Mercury Hertford and District League Centenary Trophy final was played yesterday evening at the Hertfordshire FA County Ground in Letchworth.

The Trophy which is in it's first season is competed for by all the member clubs across the four divisions of the league. Both Cheshunt based Greenbury United and their opponents last night, Hertford County, are members of the Premier Division.

County had qualified for the final by beating Ware Lions Re-United of Division Two (1-2), Broxbourne Badgers of the Premier Division (2-0), Hertford Celtic of Division Two couldn't field a side in the quarter final so County went through and Elizabeth Allen Old Boys of Division One in the semi-final (1-0).

Greenbury United had got through thanks to victories over County Hall Rangers of Division Two (1-3), Baldock Cannon (3-4) who are their nearest challengers in second place of the Premier Division, Oracle Components of Division One (4-0) and Premier Division Waltham Abbey 'A' (2-4 AET).

The result went with the form side as Greenbury United are top of the Premier Division table with Hertford County currently in 6th placed out of 10 teams. It was what the cold end would describe as a real game of football with some strong challenges and tackles flying in at times as you'll see from the video highlights.

Greenbury United lifted the Trophy thanks to a 3-0 win through a brace (one a penalty) from Danny Ward and a good finish from Peter Ulatowski, a name all Enfield Town fans will recognise after his time with the club during the Essex Senior League days. County could of got back into the game at 1-0 when they were awarded a spot-kick of their own which was well saved by the Greenbury keeper.
