Last seasons double winners Broadhall were unbeaten all season, but if any team were likely to halt their run it was going to be Roebuck, who had taken a point from them in an earlier league meeting.
Wanderers' defence, marshalled superbly by Pearce, Cakir and Florence, was rarely breached and on the occasions it was, Goalkeeper HP provided a display full of confidence and competence.

A superb, defence-splitting ball from Giammarco, early in the first period of extra-time, gave Freddie the one opportunity he needed to cast off the shackles of his marker.
He cut through the opponents defence like a knife through butter before providing a clinical finish.
Anthony, Lewis, Green and Hunt all played their parts in what was a team performance and though this was a nip and tuck affair throughout,
Roebuck always had the edge and it was they who deservedly move on to the final.
