Key players

Andriy Tabas – CM – His switch from left back to centre mid has seen him flourish in the cup so far, picking up two man of the match awards and becoming a vital part of Vanbrugh’s attack.

Matt Potts – RW – A constant threat on the right wing due to his pace and good dribbling and has managed to pick up an impressive 5 assists thus far.

Brad Dunkley – CB – Solid at the back and also strong in the air, he has grabbed two goals from corners whilst keeping 3 clean sheets in 6 games.

College Cup Final Preview: James 1s

College Cup Results

James 1s 3-0 Alcuin 3s

James 1s 1-1 Derwent 1s

James 1s 3-2 Halifax 2s

James 1s 6-1 Wentworth 2s

James 1s 5-0 Constantine 1s

James 1s 1-1 Goodrickes 1s (James won on penalties)

James 1s 3-1 James 2s

Key Players

Matt Singleton – STR – On the home straight of a season somewhat hampered by injury, the Black Swan’s talismanic striker will be hoping to finally fire his side to silverware.

Ralph Gill – CM – James’ all-round-man offers the composure and grit which his side will need to secure the Cup. The Black Swan’s league campaign fell apart last term the moment he went off injured in their 4-1 defeat to Vanbrugh. Needless to say, they’ll be hoping better fortunes.

Mandeep Sangha – RB – The James 1s captain has seen his side begin both league campaigns magnificently this academic year, only to see them falter towards the end on both occasions. The James 1s are vulnerable under pressure, and it could affect the players’ psychological preparation for the final. It’s down to Sangha to ensure history doesn’t rear its ugly head.

Predicted Line-up

(4-3-3): Balzan (GK)

Sangha (C), Elliot, McCormick, Jobling

Fox, Gill, Tuite

Jopson, Singleton, Clarkson.
