Mile End blitzed Mustard FC to lift the Jack Walpole Cup after Jake Davey hit a hat-trick in a 5-1 win.

Mile End, who received a walkover in the semi-final against Young London Meteors, were grateful to Davey’s majestic treble in a hotly-contested match.

Mustard, who were thrashed by Clapton Rangers in the Dickie Davies Cup final last week, finished eight points above their Premier Division rivals in the table, but they were well beaten.

Greg Moorse gave Mustard a glimmer of hope when his penalty brought the score back to 2-1 five minutes before half-time.

But Mile End ensured there would be no comeback, with Davey completing his hat-trick before Jason Burwood and Karl Stephens capped a one-sided affair with further strikes in the second half.

In Division One of the Hackney & Leyton League, Riviera FC completed their promotion-winning campaign with a 5-3 triumph over Highfield FC.

Riviera trailed 2-1 after Adam Camara’s double, but Oraldo Kola bagged a second-half brace to turn the match on its head, before Ioli Gyata and Elton Dervishaj sealed another Riviera victory.
