Barnham Trojans Under 9 Blue reached there first cup final at the first attempt of asking and played a thrilling game against Rustington Otters at Arundel Football Club.

The game started slowly with both teams struggling to find that killer touch amongst the nerves of the occasion. The majority of the game was played in the middle of the park with little attempts on goal by either team.

The second half did however live up to the occasion and Barnham had a magical spell with 3 goals in 10 minutes to turn the tie on its head. Rustington did play their part and rallied on to get a couple of late goals to make the last few minutes a nervous spell for both the coaches and parents but hung on as 3-2 winners to lift the trophy.

Team – Arran (GK), Jonny, Ryan, Harvey (D), Connor, Harry, Jack (m), Bradley, Harrison and Ghyll (S)
