Glascote's man of the match Joe Obi danced round the England defence to score a fourth in the 46th minute and this was followed by a fifth from Chris Bryant in the 65th minute.


A stunning volley from the edge of the area reduced the arrears in the 67th minute but two good finishes from Mark Swann in the 82nd and 86th minute gave Galscote the trophy with a 7-2 win.
