MILLWALL Albion have made London Cup history by winning the Under-17 final for a third straight year and completing a remarkable quartet of triumphs.

The same Albion team had won the competition at Under-10, Under-15 and Under-16 level, and became the first side to lift the trophy four times by overcoming Haringey Borough 2-0 in the final.

Millwall took the lead in a tough contest when man of the match Dave Stewart slipped the ball through to Jon Green, who coolly slotted home.

Ahead at half-time thanks to a strong display from defenders Jay Knight, Tom Knowles, Jay-Jay Per and Ashley Hughes, Albion were just 45 minutes from an unprecedented hat-trick of cup wins.

And Salih Ali - one of three Millwall players competing in a fourth final along with Knight and midfielder Charlie Hart - sealed the victory midway through the second half.

Michael Misfud broke through the centre of the Haringey defence and when his shot was blocked, Ali fired in.

Millwall almost snatched a third when Ali raced down the wing and picked out Stewart, whose close-range shot was saved, but there was no way back for Haringey and Albion deservedly clinched an unprecedented fourth cup win.
