Jones at the double as Campfield secure Sunday Cup

2 May 2015

Two goals from Steven Jones gave Campfield a 2-0 victory over OJM in the final of The FA Sunday Cup.

Both teams were appearing in the final for the first time in their history and they served up an entertaining spectacle in front of a healthy crowd here at Ewood Park.

Merseyside men Campfield dominated the first half and went ahead early on when Jones tapped home from close range.

Campfield created the majority of the chances in the opening 45 minutes, with OJM keeper Danny Roberts doing well to keep his side in the game. However, the Birmingham-based outfit almost equalised just before the break, as Sean Williams’ shot was pushed onto the post. 

OJM started the second half on the front foot, with Campfield keeper Ryan Jones called upon to make several superb saves.

Having soaked up the spell of sustained pressure, Campfield doubled their lead with less than 20 minutes remaining, as Jones finished off a well-worked move for his second goal of the game.  

Campfield saw out the closing stages in style to secure their first ever Sunday Cup success. 

It was the second season running that Rovers had hosted the FA Sunday Cup showpiece, following on from the success of the 50th anniversary final when Humbledon Plains Farm defeated holders Oyster Martyrs 5-2 at Ewood Park.
