Hat-trick hero Cal Law helps Wheatsheaf United to 3-1 Sam Arnold Memorial Trophy win over Holy Trinity
Wheatsheaf United lifted the Sam Arnold Memorial Trophy after a 3-1 win over Holy Trinity on Sunday afternoon.
Wheatsheaf, who put in a strong performance from back to front, have Cal Law to thank for their goals, as he scored a hat-trick on the day.
Law opened the scoring inside the first ten minutes, converting from the penalty spot.
Sheaf’s second also came from a dead-ball situation as Ewan Miller headed Sam Robinson’s whipped free-kick back across goal to Law, who finished from two yards out at the back post to make it 2-0 before the break.
Trinity pulled one back and threatened to set up a nervy finish when Liam Moran finished in the 80th minute.
Though, Law’s 12th goal of the Alliance campaign ensured victory for Wheatsheaf.
The striker, who was pressing the Trinity defence, forced a mistake and chased the short sideways pass before cutting in to finish past Oliver Swaby.
Law said: “I think it’s fair to say both teams know that it’s always a good match up.
“We are two good sets of lads and there’s always goals provided in our games.
“We knew what their strengths were and we tried to stop them.
“We wanted to press high and put them under pressure, which I think we did well.
“Defensively, it was probably one of our best performances of the season.
“Personally, it is always nice to get goals and to score a hat-trick in the cup final was a great feeling.”
In Division Two, Newark FC clinched the title in their final game of the season, making no mistake as they beat Bleasby 8-0.
Having taken a 3-0 lead, the first of which coming after 13 minutes through Jack Price, the result was never in doubt.
Price, who hit a brace, was joined on the scoresheet by George Price (two) Joe Parker and hat-trick hero Andra Wilson.
Fernwood, who needed Newark to drop points to win the title, took care of business on their end as they beat Sutton 5-2 thanks to four goals from the division’s top-scorer Drew Allwood.
Elsewhere in the league, Bottesford beat AFC Coddington Tigerz 4-2 at home.
Just five league fixtures remain across all three divisions of the Newark Alliance — three in the Premier and two in Division Two.
