Totty Cup Final, Thursday 14th March 2024 - Lacewood 4-3 Brampton Ellis

A superb final saw Lacewood come from behind to overcome Brampton Ellis.Brampton Ellis struck first when Joshua Hardware pounced on a wind-assisted punt that was only parried. This was cancelled out by Cohen Mace when he converted a penalty that he himself had won.


Within a minute, Hardware restored Brampton’s lead when he reacted quickly to a loose ball in the box. As half-time approached Lacewood were awarded a series of free-kicks within shooting range. Zak Bridgen’s first effort looked like it was going in, until keeper Vinny Pettinger clawed it onto the crossbar. That was a marker for Bridgen, as his next free-kick arrowed in. Half-time 2-2.

The Mace brothers turned the game in Lacewood’s favour with a goal apiece after the break. Cohen latched on a long ball and coolly rounded the keeper, before Logan’s looping shot opened up a 2 goal advantage. The Ellis were still in it and Max Watson’s long distance effort went narrowly wide before Oliver Cory prodded in after an assist from Hardware.

Lacewood saw out the last 10 minutes to secure the Totty Cup for the first time in 5 years – and a Don & Dearne double after winning the Barlow-Salmons last year.

The Brampton Ellis class of 2024 can take heart from the fact that they are their best school team in 16 years.
