The final of the first Brian Hubball Charity Cup was played on Sunday afternoon at Hertford Town between ST GEORGES FC and HARPENDEN COLTS. The cup is named after the league's press officer Brian Huball who since the league was formed has put in so much hard work behind the scenes to keep the league going.
The cup competition was run with the ain to raise money and awareness for the CALM charity- The Campaign Against Living Miserably. 75% of all UK suicides are male and every week nearly 100 men commit suicide with the 16-40 age bracket the most common. The CALM charity exists to over life saving services, provoking conversation and bringing people together to reject living miserably. Check out the thecalmzone.net for more details or to donate to the league's charity appeal please visit their just giving page here which currently has the amazing total of £1500 raised.
The final saw Division One side Harpenden Colts Old Boys face Division Four side St Georges who are based in Welwyn Garden City. It wasn't a brilliant game to be honest but on chances created I'd say Harpenden deserved the victory which they got with just one goal scored by Jamie Jones in the 85th minute.
St Georges were down to 10 men at the time as one of their players had been sin-binned and they were reduced to 9 by the end of the game when the referee initially sin-binned another player only to show the red card to him as he walked off the pitch. Some pictures and match highlights are below.
