Fletcher Priest Architects won the AJ Cup for 2002.
The event - a one-day, fivea-side football extravaganza run by the same people who brought you the AJ-backed Architects Construction London football league (recently clinched by RHWL) - went to a nail-biting series of penalties in the final at Mill Hill Football Centre last Saturday.
RHWL was the unlucky loser, failing to do the league and cup double by the closest of margins, losing to Fletcher Priest by three penalties to two after drawing 1-1 in normal time. Man of the final was judged to be Richard Hanson of Fletcher Priest, while the winner of the consolation Plate final was URS Corp, which defeated Wimberly Allison Tong and Goo. Other combatants included teams from Alan Conisbee, Sheppard Robson, Chapman Taylor and BDP (some grudge matches there). An enjoyable day was had by all, and many of the teams have already said they will be taking part in the ACL league next year.The league - again to be backed by the AJ - kicks off in September.
