On Saturday 27th May, after a long league and cup competition, AFC Spartans and Redemption FC lined up to face each other to be named the KAFL Cup Champions 2017 (the Champions League for the KAFL competition). AFC Spartans and Redemption FC were in the same group for the group stage of the competition. AFC Spartans won the group with Redemption FC finishing 2nd.
Wins over Unathletico Madrid and 66 Academy saw Redemption FC progress to the final. Wins over New Life FC and Parkwood Forest saw AFC Spartans progress to the final. Goals from Luke Port and Tim Callen in the first half saw AFC Spartans head into the half time break with a comfortable 2-0 lead.
In the second half Redemption FC came out fighting but another goal from Man of The Match, Luke Port, from 25 yards out, saw AFC Spartans lead grow to 3. The nail in the coffin for Redemption FC was a headed goal from CB Blake Andrews late in the game. The gap was too big for Redemption FC and AFC Spartans went on to win the game, lift the trophy, and achieve the double, winning both the league and cup competition of 2016/17. Congratulations to Redemption FC on reaching the final and AFC Spartans for completing the double!
