Three pieces of silverware will be contested by local teams on Bank Holiday Monday as sides go head-to-head for the ADL, Oving and Villages and St Mary’s cups.

The last of this season’s Aylesbury and District League cup finals takes place on Bank Holiday Monday as two Division One teams parade their skills, having knocked out teams from the Premier in their semi-finals.

Bierton FC Wanderers saw their movement off the ball play dividends in their semi-final tie against Downley Albion, when they scored three times in the second half, despite losing their full-back in the process with a broken leg, to gain a 4-1 victory.

FC Mandeville needed the introduction of 16 year old Mitchell Collins to turn their match against Aston Park as they won 3-2.

As per usual the match is to be played at Tring Athletic’s Grass Roots Stadium with a 7.45pm, kick-off.

Meanwhile, the final of one of the oldest cup competitions in world football also takes place today. The Oving and Villages Cup, which has been around since 1889, will be contested by Aylesbury and District League side Wingrave and village rivals Stewkley. The match gets under way at 2pm.

Another final featuring a local side on Bank Holiday Monday is in the St Mary’s Cup.

Tring Athletic will take on Berkhamsted at 3pm and the match will now be played at Berkhamsted’s Broadwater ground after the original venue – Hemel Hempstead Town’s home ground at Vauxhall Road – had to be used for their Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division play-off final clash with Gosport Borough.
