There was some hope for Sporting Armada as they pulled a goal back before half-time when Harry Tampsett made it 3-1.

Sporting Armada had a massive job on their hands in the second half and it was to get that bit tougher when FC Kicks made it 4-1 through Thijs van Puel. Sporting Armada were not out of it at this stage as Will Wood reduced the lead to 4-2. FC Kicks re-established a three goal cushion courtesy of Joost Ropen. The title was then wrapped up in style as Auke Jager completed his hat-trick. Final score, 6-2.

We offer our consolations to Sporting Armada who were absolutely superb on the day and put in a stunning effort. They were so close to completing that maiden title.
