Champions Manor Farm romped to a 5-0 win, reaching 102 points in the process, before receiving the Western League trophy in front of an ecstatic home crowd.
It took Farm 25 minutes to settle their nerves on their big occasion. Troy Simpson had a shot blocked but scored with a second bite of the cherry, slamming home the opening goal from the edge of the box into the bottom right hand corner of the net.
Aron Robbins saw a great header sail just over the bar on 39 minutes but Farm doubled their lead on the stroke of half time when Ben Bament followed up Jack Durrant’s saved penalty kick to drill the ball in from the edge of the six yard box.
Farm started the second half high in confidence and created a good few chances before the hour mark when Jordan Metters whipped a ball in to the box that Robbins stooped bravely to head home for 3-0.
Substitute Jake Cox crossed from the left but Mark Cuff in the Sherborne goal expertly tipped Dean Stamp’s drive behind for a corner.
Moments later Cox was emphatic in giving Farm a 4-0 lead when he rifled a shot in from 20 yards.
The midfielder then hit an even stronger piledriver from the same distance two minutes later that Cuff could only parry to Simpson, on hand at close range to slam the ball home for 5-0, effectively tying the red and black ribbons to the handles of the Western League Trophy.
