Witherley v Blades in final; CHAPEL END CUP.

A repeat of the 1996 Chapel End Cup Final will grace Stockingford AA's Ansley Road ground on Easter Monday when Jet Blades and Witherley United do battle in an all-Coventry Alliance Premier affair.

The old rivals booked their place in the final with victories over lower league opposition as Blades cut Fillongley down to size in a 10-1 success while the Atherstone side came through 2-0 at Bucksford, who were losing finalists last year.

It was a story of two Pauls in the Fillongley demise with Paul Clark notching a nap-hand for Bernie Cope's outfit while Paul Miles fired a four-timer. Andy Beresford completed the rout.

Cope said: ``We scored twice in a minute early on and from then on it was never a contest. We scored some good goals but Fillongley were clearly second best, although to their credit they kept going to the end.

``The only problem we had was when we were awarded a penalty with the two Pauls both wanting to take the kick and complete their hat-trick. In the end it was Milesy who got the nod.

``Now we can look forward to meeting Witherley who are one of our bogey sides. Not only did they beat us in the '96 final but they have beaten us 1-0 at their place in the league and drew 1-1 in the return.''

Witherley had to fight hard before getting the better of a determined Bucksford and they'll start favourites to repeat their success over Blades two years ago.
