COMMERCIAL Old Boys have won the Umbro Veterans’Over 40s National Championship Final, beating Overton United Veterans 3-1 at Nuneaton Borough’s Triton Showers Community Arena on Sunday.

And the Colne side could yet make it a double as they face a final date in the Umbro Veterans Masters’ Over 35s at Keele University against Mayfair Veterans of London on August 5th.

On Sunday the Old Boys had too much for their Basingstoke opponents at Nuneaton.

The locals led 1-0 at the break thanks to a strike from former Colne midfielder Scott Gizon.

Dale Hoyle made it 2-0 in the second half, before an own goal wrapped things up.

Overton netted a consolation two minutes into injury time.
