WEMBLEY DREAM FOR TWO RONNIES

Ronnie Henry made it a family double at Wembley Stadium as Stevenage Borough came from 2-0 down to win the FA Trophy Final on Saturday.

Ronnie Henry made it a family double at Wembley Stadium as Stevenage Borough came from 2-0 down to win the FA Trophy Final on Saturday.

The former Spurs trainee and grandson of double-winning hero Ron Henry - who helped us lift the FA Cup at the old stadium in 1961 and 1962 - captained Borough to the memorable victory against Kidderminster Harriers in the first cup final at the newly-designed stadium.

There were further Spurs connections in the victorious team as manager Mark Stimson played for us twice in 1987-88 and Jamie Slabber, another former trainee who made one appearance for us in 2002-03, was an unused substitute.

It was a hat-trick for Mark - he won the FA Trophy with Grays in 2005 and 2006 before Saturday's success.

A crowd of 53,262 - the biggest for a final in the competition - saw James Constable score twice in the first half to put the Harriers in control.

But Mitchell Cole and substitute Craig Dobson levelled for Borough after the break and, just as extra-time looked inevitable, Steve Morison grabbed the clincher.
