Dandy Town 2 Robin Hood 1

Dandy Town Hornets won the Charity Cup for a third straight year after beating Robin Hood in a close match at Bernard Park today.

Tomiko Goater, one of the team's top scorers last season, hit the target from close range in the seventeenth minute after a corner on the right by experienced midfielder Damon Ming.

Late first-half pressure paid off for Hood, last season's FA Cup winners and runners-up to Hornets in the league, when they equalised in the 41st minute through Ereico Outerbridge who placed a low shot into the far corner.

Hornets winner came against the run of play early in the second half when midfielder Daeshun Butterfield drove his left-footed shot inside the post from 20 yards in 57 minutes.

Angelo Simmons, the Town captain, came on as a second-half substitute, twice went close to scoring in injury time, including steering his first effort wide when with just the goalkeeper Jason Simons to beat.

On the mark: Goater scored the opening goal of the Charity Cup
