England’s Hope were looking to reach a further final appearance in addition to the League Cup final, but it was never going to be an easy task against newly-crowned Division One champions, CSKA.
Home advantage and a determination to win a double spurred CSKA on at the Thomas Clarkson Academy.
Goals from Max Mattless and a double strike from Arron McKenna came against an under-par Hope.

Division 2: League
Ingoldisthorpe 0 Shouldham 4
In a winner-takes-all encounter, it was a tense first half with few chances at both ends and numerous errors across the pitch from both teams.
With Southery ASA waiting in the wings to snatch the league title in the event of a draw, it was looking to be a definite possibility, until Shouldham scored, one minute before half-time.
The second half began with an Ingoldisthorpe chance, but Shouldham began to pass the ball around and took control of the game.
Shouldham took their chances well and added to the scoreline at regular intervals via Jo Malby , Martyn Williams, John Murphy and Dan Murphy after a strong championship-winning performance.
Ingoldisthorpe were unable to create chances.
