Howle Hill win the Ross-on-Wye Cup

By Jo Scrivin in Football

Easter Monday was a sunny but chilly day for the Ross-on-Wye Cup Final at Weston under Penyard.

As they warmed up there was much good natured banter between the teams, but the game was played very seriously and both sides gave their all as they tried to win the trophy.

The Ross Cup, originally called the Ross Cottage Hospital Cup, for the Ross and District league was first played for in 1935.

At one point there were 16 teams competing for the cup but this year there were ten, and the finalists were Ross Juniors and Howle Hill.

A goal in the first half from Howle Hill lifted the team and although Ross Juniors fought back with a goal of their own, it was the Hill Men who won the game, 2-1 and took the trophy.
