Clerkenwell Old Boys, who won the Challenge Cup back in February, celebrate Sunday’s 5-1 win at Hackney Marshes

PLAYERS from Clerkenwell Old Boys are eyeing up a Camden Sunday League double after booking their place in the final of the Senior Cup at the weekend with a five-star performance against Cobden Athletic.

Having already hit our sports pages when they won the Challenge Cup back in February, the Islington-based side wasted little time getting back on the trophy trail, and are now just one win away from getting their hands on yet more silverware.

And to add a bit of extra spice to April’s showpiece, awaiting them in the final are Crouch End Rangers – the team that they beat 3-1 to capture the Challenge Cup.

On Sunday the Old Boys showed their battling spirit as they came from a goal down to beat Cobden 5-1 at Hackney Marshes.

Left-back Albert Cruise scored a screamer of a half-volley from a tight angle to level the scores.

Two goals from hotshot striker Daniel Attard, along with goals from Tom Salvoni and Steve Killingback, wrapped up what manager Paul Ferguson described afterwards as “a result that nobody saw coming”.
