St Robert Southwell have been crowned Brent Cup champions after sealing a 3-1 victory over Our Lady of Grace in the final of the cup competition.

A brace from Fabian Prela and second-half goal from captain Joseph Barrett guided them to the silverware at Silver Jubilee Park in a match that included 11 district players.
