Tividale retained the JW Hunt Cup at Molineux against a plucky Stone Old Alleynians side. Stone surprised Northern Premier South Tividale with a goal from Danny Herd after 23 minutes. It looked as though West Mid Div One Stone were going to bring off a shock until man of the match Karl Edwards equalised with 5 mins left. 

Extra time found Tividale get on top and a 98th min goal from Edwards put Tividale in control and two goals from Jordan Archer (110 &117 mins} sealed it for the holders.
