Sport London e Benfica made it a double-winning season after edging Edgware Town 2-1 in the Capital Junior Cup Final.

The Greater London League Division 1 North champions came from behind to defeat Edgware Town, who had finished third in the same table.

Although Edgware broke the deadlock in the second half of the final at Dorking Wanderers FC, Norwegian Iselin Vestnes quickly equalised.
