RAF Cosford Win 2020 RAF Plate Final

They beat RAF Digby 5-1 in Oxford.

RAF Cosford have won the 2020 RAF Plate final in Oxford.

A 5-1 win drubbing of RAF Digby meant Cosford have won the football competition.

The final was supposed to be played in May but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Cosford took the lead inside 20 minutes thanks to Jack Hadden-Becker's strike.

A clever turn inside the penalty area gave him the space to rocket a shot past the helpless Digby goalkeeper.

Digby were the underdogs for this but levelled the scores before half-time.

Richard Bingley's free-kick was rifled into the bottom corner from 20 yards out to add to his brace in the semi-final.

In the second half, Cosford showed their quality.

Luke Preen's hat-trick gave RAF Cosford a 5-1 win in the final.

Luke Preen put them back in front with a terrific turn of pace and powerful left-footed shot past the goalkeeper at the near post.

Two goals in three minutes sealed the victory for Cosford.

Luke Toner made it 3-1 with a tidy finish before Preen added their fourth with a close range tap-in.

Preen had to time to clinch his hat-trick.

He smashed home from 15 yards to make it 5-1 and RAF Cosford were title-winners in 2020.

After the match, we got reaction from players and coaches with both teams.
