Worksop Borough made it two out of three on Sunday, adding the Challenge Cup to the league title they won a week before.

A comfortable victory over Langold Old Boys ensured their treble hopes remain intact, ahead of this Sunday’s Benevolent Cup final with Kilton Rovers.

The deadlock was broken as early as the sixth minute when Jonathan Bownes’ ball over the top fed Lee Edwardson who fired past keeper Fisher.

Minutes later the post saved Old Boys, as Matt Booth saw his header come crashing back off the upright.

Twenty minutes in Booth doubled Boro’s advantage, tapping in from close range after the keeper fumbled Conor Smith’s cross.

Joel Gray headed over from a Bownes free-kick and Jack Stephenson’s effort came back off the post.

Langold created their first attempt, but Jordan Canning fired off target with just keeper Vanlentie to beat.

Neil Burridge then saw his 25-yard effort go wide.

Just as the break was looming Danny Wood effectively put an end to the game with a third from close range.

Langold started the second half on the attack with target man Kieran Baker causing problems from corners, which were scrambled clear.

Gray rose at the back post to head home number four from a corner.

And holding midfielder Getliff created the fifth with an excellent defence splitting ball that found Edwardson, whose deflected effort beat the Langold keeper.

Langold never gave up the cause but lacked the cutting edge in the final third.

Referee Matt Bennett then blew for full-time, giving Worksop Borough back to back victories in the Challenge Cup.

They’re this week’s final away from completing an historic treble.

All credit must go to the Alan Fisher and his Langold team who competed in their first final in their 40 year history and never gave up.
