Fourth Division Cup Final - Cosheston v Hundleton 2nds on Wednesday, April 17th, 7pm kick off at the Bridge Meadow:

The last divisional cup final of the Pembrokeshire League season takes place tonight when Division Four champions Cosheston go for the double against Hundleton 2nds.

Both these teams were only promoted from Division Five last year, and on Saturday Cosheston sealed a second straight league title after a tense 2-1 in at Broad Haven 2nds.

Hundleton meanwhile have had an up and down season, but have survived relegation after finishing with a 4-2 win at Kilgetty 2nds.

Cosheston have won the two meetings between the pair 7-0 and 3-0 in this campaign, the latter clash coming recently on April 2nd, so in the eyes of many will be favourites tonight.

That will suit Hundleton fine. They go in with little pressure or expectation on them and will be well aware these finals often don't go to script.

The history:

For Cosheston, tonight represents a first final since they reformed two seasons ago.

They have won the trophy once before though, back in the 1982/83 campaign when they beat Angle 2nds 6-0.

Whilst Hundleton have never been in the Fourth Division Cup final (1sts or 2nds) this is still a case of third time lucky. Before this season they appeared in two straight Fifith Division Cup finals, losing to Monkton 3rds and Milford United 3rds respectively.

The last time the club tasted cup success was when the first team beat Prendergast Villa 2-1 in the Second Division final in the 2014/15 season.

View from both camps:

Gavin Wickland (Cosheston player manager): "We have a quite a few coming down to watch and are hoping to have a hell of a night.

"We've only been going two years and have come a long way already. But we can't be complacent  - we know it will be tough and it's possible they'll have boys who aren't cup tied from the firsts playing.

"But whatever happens I'm proud of the boys this season. To win the league and reach a cup final, it's unbelievable."

Ben Hathaway (Hundleton 2nds manager): "It's been a poor season for us in the league but to begin with we were affected by boys being away in University. Our squad is more settled now.

"We are underdogs but we know we can give them a game. We lost 3-0 to them in the league two weeks ago but that was after a red card and we created chances. So we'll take some confidence from that.

"We're looking forward to a good night and whatever happens we'll be going out after."
