TVR chase league and cup double

First published in Sport by

TVR United remain on course to mark their debut season in the T&A League with a double title celebration after storming into the League Cup final.

They brushed aside West Bowling United 6-0 and are now just one victory away from further glory after sealing the league title the previous week.

A 20-minute spell in the first half produced four goals to end Bowling’s challenge, with two more in the closing stages rubbing salt into the wounds.

Mohammed Ishmaeel opened the scoring, with Ashid Iqbal (2) and Faisil Shabir making it 4-0 at the interval. Ishmaeel and Aiif Shezad then completed the tally in the last 20 minutes.

The weekend also saw one league match take place and it produced a storming comeback by rock-bottom Sporting Athletic as they wiped out a three-goal deficit to beat Bradford All Stars 4-3.

All Stars appeared to be cruising after goals from Mohammed Junayd (2) and Raziq but Dominic Hutchinson pulled one back before the interval to give Athletic hope.

The second half then saw Jonathan Pickles and Mark James level the scores, leaving the stage clear for Ryan Parker to net the winner.
