The final game of the day saw West Wickham FC take on Westerham Sundays Fc for the Jack Standen Trophy. The game was marked at the start by a moving minutes applause from everyone in the ground for Westerhams Barry Habgood who tragically passed away 2 days after their quarter final win.
The game started pretty evenly with both teams feeling each other out and scrapping for the ball but no clear cut chances of note. The game came to life in the 27th min when the outstanding Charlie Hackshall picked the ball up from 25 yards and unleashed an unstoppable drive into the roof of the net. Westerham were looking for a way back in were given a lifeline when a through ball was played to Lewis Longhurst as he rounded the Wickham keeper Ade Adeniyi, he handled the ball outside the box and was shown a red card. However the next goal was to Wickham when Charlie Hackshall earned his team a free kick and from the set piece the ball was bundled home by Walder. Things went from bad to worse for Westerham as on the stroke of half time, Hackshall again involved danced along the byeline and crossed for McGeary to score the 3rd for Wickham. The 2nd half was more of the same as even with 10 men, Wickham dominated the ball and man of the match Charlie Hackshall scored his 2nd of the game from distance in the 60th min to make it 4-0 to West Wickham. Kieron Gordon scored a consolation goal from close range in the 72nd min for Westerham but in the end Wickham saw out the game for the victory.
