The Lions had won the first game 6-0, though the match had to be replayed after they were found guilty of fielding an ineligible player.

Wednesday’s match proved to be a closely-contested match, played at Hendon FC’s Silver Jubilee Park stadium.

Craig Henry gave Lions a first half lead when he prodded in from-close range, before Danny Schindler wrapped up the win, slotting home after the break to double their advantage.

The Peter Moss Man-of-the-Match award went to Craig Henry.
