Old Aloysians are aiming to complete a hat-trick of trophies this weekend when they travel to Lilleshall for the national Veterans’ Cup final.

The Islington club have already claimed a double this season, winning the London Old Boys Cup for a record seventh consecutive year as well as beating Chigwell 1-0 to take the Jack Perry Veterans’ Cup.

The squad to face Liverpool side Copplehouse in Sunday’s final (kick-off 1pm) includes two players who recently represented England Over-50 veterans, Paul Bhatia and Samson Olayee.

The Aloysians pair, who both featured in a 1-0 win over Wales, will also be involved when England compete in a home international tournament in Belfast later this month.

Old Aloysians squad: McGrath, Surridge, Bhatia, Cinnoti, Edwards, Gillard, Smith, Flynn, Regan, Barker, Olayee, Timotheu, Miles, Solari.
