Dulwich Hamlet Reserves 4 Staines Town Reserves 1.

Capital League President's Cup Final, Tuesday 15th May 2007.

A lacklustre first half from the Hamlet at the end of which they trailed to a strike out of the blue on 17 minutes from Staines Jordan Kiffin was put in the shade as the sun went down on Champion Hill and the Dulwich boys came out to play.

Second half, though not all Hamlet, saw Dulwich romp to victory with Sol Pinnock claiming four goals in an orgy of destruction.

Dulwich had already been denied an equaliser from Staines stand-in 'keeper Danny Fisher, reacted smartly to turn away a stinging strike from Nicolas Plumain but on the hour mark Pinnock collected the ball just inside the visitors half, embarked on a searing diagonal run into the heart of opposition territory before driving an unerring shot low across the 'keeper and into the far bottom corner.

Excellent goalkeeping from Chris Lewington maintained parity, the young custodian smartly turning over a fierce close range shot from a tight angle by Aston Ventour, the save doubling in importance as Hamlet took the lead soon after.

If Pinnock's first had been a quality goal number two will rank amongst the all-time classics of Champion Hill, hardly a sweeter strike seen on the hallowed turf.

A corner, half cleared, reached Pinnock lurking with severe intent on the edge of the penalty area. With power and precision the striker produced a shot that curled over a host of defenders and found a home in the top corner of the net.

Three minutes later and the chance to claim a hat trick as Eniola Oluwa steeped on the gas to power into the penalty area, only to be unceremoniously upended.

Complaints from the visitors but no indecision from referee Colin Overall, a spot kick and though Fisher guessed right Pinnock's kick had the power to beat him low to his right despite the 'keeper getting his hands to the ball.

The punishment was not over for Staines; substitute Shawn Beveney tormenting defenders as he toying with them in the area before slipping the ball to Pinnock and from 15 yards out the number slamming home a fourth with a crisp drive low beneath the 'keeper.

Dispirited Staines looked for consolation but the closest to further scoring came five minutes from time when the lively Theo Fairweather-Johnson was denied a deserved goal as he held off his marker to latch on to Beveney's header, only for Fisher to react quickly to shovel a low drive round the upright.

The final whistle brought elation for the Hamlet, despondency for Staines, runners-up to the Hamlet both in League and Cup but for the Dulwich boys the champagne was soon flowing.
