Tavern are talk of the town

Have your say

BOTH the teams who will contest this weekend’s Doncaster Alliance Cup final tasted defeat in their last league games of the season.

Premier Division Adam & Eve lost 2-1 at home to bottom club Acorn, meaning that they failed to improve on seventh place.

Craig Trewick and Tom Padge shared out the goals as Acorn won for only the fourth time this season in the league.

Second-placed Sprotbrough lost 5-2 at home to newly-crowned champions Canal Tavern in their final Championship clash.

Jonathon Murfin scored both Sprotbrough consolation goals with Adam Freeborn (2), Darren Brown, Lee Mason and Kirk Frost replying for Tavern, who ended the season with just one league defeat.

Conisbrough Conyers missed out on a top-three finish after going down 2-0 at eighth-placed Stainforth.

South Kirkby Colliery finished on a high with an 8-0 win over Division Three rivals Armthorpe Village.

Carl Wilson led the way with a hat-trick with Myles Cleland bagging a brace. Jamie Benn, Ian Smith and Nick Craggs also netted.
