ROBERTSWOOD player-manager Calum Fraser declared his pride in the team after their 2-0 victory over St Peters Iver to lift the East Berkshire League Presidents Cup on Saturday.


went into the cup final at The Gore in Burnham as favourites although it was only their second-ever cup final an first in five years.

St Peters threatened with pressure early on without creating any clear cut chances.

Lee Lally got through down the right wing to win a free-kick in a good area for the boys in blue. A clever routine along the floor from Steve Park was dummied by George Trendle and smartly finished by midfielder Dave Fores for his first goal of the season.

Robertswood started to get a hold of the ball midway through the first half and it paid off with some brilliant work from Fores into Ben Morten. He played a beautifully flighted ball over the St Peters defence for striker Steve Park to coolly slot into the bottom right corner.

The second half started with pressure from St Peters Iver and they almost caused Robertswood to concede when a fantastic strike from captain Dan Seagrove rattled the post.

The boys in blue then launched a counter-attack only for them to suffer the same outcome and hit the post.

Trendle then headed towards goal only for his effort to be cleared off the line.

The game was then end-to-end with both teams tiring and, after Robertswood needed extra time to beat Iver Heath Village in their semi-final in midweek, it would not have been idea.

St Peters Iver went through on goal late on only to be denied by a superb stop from keeper Will Holiday.

Robertswood eventually held on to the 2-0 win and secure the first-ever trophy fir the club after nine seasons.

Player-manager Fraser said: "I'm really proud of the boys and so happy to finally get some silverware. Every single one of us gave it their all not just in the final but the semi-final as well."
