Middlesex Sunday Junior Trophy semi-final: Highgate Albion thirds 3 St Mary’s Harefield 2
Highgate Albion thirds made it through to the final of the Middlesex Sunday Junior Trophy final with a 3-2 win over St Mary’s Harefield.
Conditions weren’t the best with a heavy wind present, which made it a tricky tie for both clubs.
Albion went 1-0 up when cousins Luke Morgan and Paul Reid pressed, which was duly rewarded when Reid slotted home the opener.
Harefield bounced back with a superb free kick before our very own captain Daniel Glaude responded with a fine free kick to restore the lead.
