Heavy rain spoiled the game between Thurnscoe Hill and Brampton Ellis Senior in the Totty Cup final on Shepherd Lane ground on Tuesday.  Brampton were the stronger team, and although Thurnscoe put up a gallant fight, they were beaten 9-0.  The Thurnscoe lads were forced on the defensive from the early stages, but dour work by the backs kept the lively Brampton lads at bay for some time.  Eventually Spencer seized on an opening and made no mistake.  Shortly afterwards the Thurnscoe goalkeeper was unlucky when a shot by Spencer bounced awkwardly over his arm.  Thurnscoe made occasional raids but the Brampton goalkeeper was well covered by Kitchen and Skidmore, and had little difficulty in dealing with any shot.  Naylor, Walters and Turner were Trojans for Brampton.  A storming right wind movement led to Robledo scoring a third goal before half-time.

Robledo was a dashing leader for Brampton and quickly added to the score.  Brampton continued to swing the ball from wing to wing, despite difficult conditions, and this led to Garside scoring a fifth goal.  Although well behind, Thurnscoe showed fight, but Robledo again scored, and in the last few minutes Brampton displayed their staying powers by scoring three more goals.  Turner with a long sot, Graside and Robledo being the scorers.
