Haringey Borough extended their unbeaten run to 23 games as they reached the final of the Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy after a 4-2 win over London APSA at Coles Park on Tuesday.

Their reward is a final clash with Hullbridge Sports on Tuesday at Burnham Ramblers’ Leslie Field Stadium.

Boro led at the break after their tenth minute opener through Stephen Obeng.

The visitors grabbed an equaliser through Fahad Nyanja but this did not last long as Haringey restored their advantage.

Joe O’Cearuill’s cross deceived the goalkeeper and floated into the corner of the net.

But APSA battled back once more and earned a second equaliser in the 76th minute from a Jorge Sambu header.

Boro responded almost immediately and Richard Worrell headed them into a 3-2 lead from close range.

Tom Loizou’s side ensured victory when the keeper misjudged Lee Allen’s long shot as Boro booked their place in the final.

This followed on from Boro’s 3-1 win over Takeley in the quarter-finals on Saturday.

The home side scored with their first attack when Anthony McDonald’s cross shot went in off the post.

Haringey doubled the lead when Charles Douse hooked home in the 21st minute.

But Boro conceded a penalty when Cedric Lakole fouled a striker and Reece Dobson scored to bring Takeley back into the tie.

Darrell Cox hit the bar before Worrell headed a free-kick into the net.
