GREAT Chishill reached their first cup final in over 10 years after causing another upset in the semi final against Sawston United.
Sawston, who finished fourth in the Senior A Division, were caught cold as the visitors raced into a three-goal lead before half time to all but end confirm their place in the final.
The Chishill defence had to be on their toes to deal with some good early pressure from Sawston, but Chishill took the lead with a brilliant counter attack.
Elliot Drury played in Gary Radford down the left and he cut the ball back for Jonathan Drury who swept the ball home from close range.

The lead was doubled when Lee Smith powered his way through the United defence and rifled the ball inside the 'keeper's near post.
Things got worse for the hosts shortly afterwards when Radford was scythed down by the 'keeper in the area and Smith tucked away his second from the penalty spot.

Chishill feared a Sawston backlash after the break but they stood firm and created more chances to kill the game off, with Elliot Drury heading just over and Radford also clearing the bar with a close-range shot.
Sawston grabbed a goal in the last 10 mintes when their striker turned neatly at the far post to score past Andy Knight, but Chishill celebrated at the final whistle after their 12th game unbeaten.
