Div 4 cup final - TEN-man Milford United came from behind to defeat battling St Florence and clinched the cup at Monkton Lane last Friday evening.
The Robins grabbed an early goal through Gareth Fawcett to give them the lead, but St Florence hit back with goals from Adrian Taylor and Jamie Roberts to lead 2-1 at half time.
However, the Robins equalised on 70 minutes when Tyrone John buried his low shot past St Florence goalkeeper Will Thomas.
Ten minutes from full time and Fawcett grabbed his second goal of the game, which the winner. The striker coolly lobbed keeper Thomas from the edge of the 18-yard area, but five minutes from the end the Robins cup final glory was tainted somewhat when referee Chris Stapleton issued a straight red card to Robins’ defender Neil Turner.
