Lions have made it to a final on their return to South Midlands League football at the first time of asking after a tremendous 1-0 away win at Baldock Town sent them through to the last two of the Division One Cup.
In what was described by manager Andy Landesberg as a ‘huge performance’ Lions won away at their promotion rivals with a solitary early goal from Adam Bolle.
In difficult conditions, Lions had to battle against the weather plus a very strong opponent in Baldock and from back to front performed manfully.
Lions defensive unit with Harpin in goal was particularly strong, with Rinsler on top form as well as Landesberg and Tom Smith outstanding under plenty of pressure from the home team.
The visitors nicked the only goal after fifteen minutes when good play between Jake Furman and Liron Mannie, saw the latter whip in a super cross for Adam Bolle to head in his 20th goal in just thirteen games since re-joining from Aveley.
While Lions created more chances after this, defending this precious lead was achieved with a huge amount of work from all concerned and a deserved final – the team’s 4th in 3 years – now awaits.
Lions will face runaway league leaders Southall or Ampthill Town for the cup.
