'We've got a labrador and it's cardboard'

The cardboard labrador was hoisted by the North Bank faithful as Leamington became the first team to win the double in the Midland Alliance at the Bescot Stadium, Walsall last night in front of a crowd of 935. They beat Tipton Town 2-1 to take the Polymac Services League Cup, but only after extra time.

Brakes failed to dominate in the first half and Tipton went ahead just before half time. Leamington were more dominant in the second half and succeeded in hitting the woodwork twice with Tipton's keeper making some great saves. But, then, as the minutes ticked away and pressure from Brakes mounted, it was a case of Avon calling with substitute Avun Jephcott scoring the equaliser from inside the area. In extra time Andy Gregory made it 2-1 with a fierce shot from outide the box.

The joy on the face of veteran Morton Titterton, who had been serenaded throughout with chants of 'Titter-ton' was a delight to see.
