FOOTBALL - Rugby Borough retain Coventry Charity Cup to complete double

RUGBY Borough lifted the Coventry Charity Cup with a resounding 4-0 win against Coventry Alvis to secure a league and cup double.

Borough retained the cup, having also lifted the trophy when it was last played for in 2019, with Brad Harris, Halim Halim, Tommy Glasscoe and Dale Linton all on target at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Manager Dan Carter said: “First and foremost I’d like to congratulate my lads on the league and cup double – fully deserved. I also want to thank everyone involved with organising the Charity Cup.

“This was for me our best performance. I never expected the lads to be outdone by the occasion and they delivered in front of a decent sized crowd.

“Not often you get to play at a professional ground, so the whole experience was amazing.

“The last few games became a bit flat after wrapping up the league, so there was always a risk of taking that into this game, but the lads did a great job.

“It’s good momentum to take into pre-season and step six football.”

Rugby eased to the Leicestershire Senior League Premier Division title this season, finishing 14 points clear at the top with 30 wins from 34 matches.

The club will play at step six in the non-league pyramid next season.
