BAR 314’s quest for six titles in two years continues this weekend, as they take on Dolphin in the Len Mahoney Cup Final at Portland United’s Grove Corner (2pm).

The league champions only lost one game in a rampant charge to the title this season, winning their other 21 fixtures and chalking up a positive goal difference of 90 over the course of the campaign.

Ahead of the game, Manager Phil Groves told Echosport: “We did the clean sweep last year with the league, the cup and the sixes and hopefully we can do it again as we feel we are a bit stronger.

“The Dolphin boys are a good bunch of lads and they are one of the stronger teams in the league so it should be a good battle.”

Dolphin meanwhile boast former Bar 314 man Charlie Kender-dine in their ranks, and man- ager Dan Spence claims his side are looking for vengeance after Bar 314 defeated them in the league’s Charity Shield earlier this term.

He added: “We know it’s going to be a big challenge but we will be looking to get a bit of revenge on them to be honest.

“We haven’t won anything this year so far to so it would be nice to get some silverware at the end of the season.”

Two other cup finals are scheduled as the Bakers Arms and Broadmayne battle it out for the George Eley Cup (10am), and Famous Old Spa and Britannia contest the Les Hallett Cup final (noon).

In the final league fixtures, Britannia overcame Dolphin with a 5-2 win at Grove Corner, Jordy Bowler and Stu Burley both bagged braces and Adam Dell also found the net.

Aura finished their campaign with a home win as they thumped Market House 5-1 and Moby Dick’s ended all square with Famous Old Spa, as they played out a 1-1 draw.
