FOXTON claimed their fourth successive Chris Boote Memorial Trophy with a convincing 2-0 victory over Metals Research.
From the first game in the competition, the holders breezed through the rounds, overcoming Cambourne Rovers and Melbourn, and the final was never in doubt, thanks to goals from Adam Fields and Shaun Audley.
Metals battled well and created a few chances of their own, with man-of-the-match Steve Plumb their main threat.
It was another successful tournament, one which has now been running since 1983 to celebrate the life of football fanatic Chris Boote who played for both Meldreth and Melbourn.
