GRUNDISBURGH were denied a Metaltec SIL league and cup double when Adam Glencastle netted a 36th minute winning-goal for Ransomes Sports in the Omnico Cup final at Notcutts Park, Woodbridge last night.

The 2005/06 winners defended well against the holders and SIL champions, and just about deserved their victory.

Glencastle's goal came after a cross from the lively Lyndon Alexander drew the Grundisburgh defence to the near post, leaving the left winger to neatly glide the ball into the net at the far post.

Ransomes keeper Guy Clubb saved superbly from Luke Reid after the break, somehow pushing his effort over the bar, but otherwise his defence kept the free-scoring Grundisburgh attack at bay.

Alexander shot over when well-placed late on, and in the 85th minute substitute Brian Clark struck the bar for Ransomes with Ross White, and then Mical Moore, having follow-up efforts saved on the line by keeper Glyn Dixon.
