Hampton win clash of the titans 

The 2012 Boodles ISFA Cup Final saw two of the tournament's most successful schools clash in a high quality Final, full passing football. In a match refereed by World Cup Final referee Howard Webb, Millfield started the brighter side and nearly took the lead when James Golby broke through only to be thwarted by a fine save from Hampton goalkeeper Will Legg. It was somewhat against the run of play that Hampton took the lead on 25 minutes when Alex Zubaidi's shot was blocked and Charlie Gerson was on hand to knock in the loose ball. The goal lifted Hampton and the game became much more even.

Once again Millfield started the second half brightly and again Legg was forced into action but the Hampton forwards always looked dangerous and they extended the lead 15 minutes into the second half when Dec Ryan's shot flew into the bottom corner with the help of a deflection. Millfield fought their way back into the match when a cross from Dan Williams was deflected into his own net by the unfortunate Joe Williamson and Will Legg was then forced into two more good saves before referee Howard Webb's final whistle brought delight to the Hampton fans.

Millfield had every reason to feel proud of their performance with Alan Robertson outstanding at the back and James Golby working his heart out in midfield but Hampton's greater punch in attack, allied to a strong defence marshalled by Max Roche, meant they were worthy winners of the trophy which was presented by the Chairman of The FA, David Bernstein.
