CIVIL Service lifted the York City & District FA Junior Cup after beating Clifford 4-2 in the final.

Luke Addison netted all four goals for Service as they saw off their fellow York Minster Engineering League division two outfit.

Lee Robinson went from near-hero to villain for Clifford as he helped claw back the score to 3-2, only to be sent off five minutes later for a second bookable offence.

Civil Service struck first as Addison, receiving Ben Hodgson's cross, curled in a 15-yard effort.

The sides continued to play the ball well but did not create any clear-cut chances until Service’s Alex Day came close on 28 minutes when his shot just cleared the bar.

Soon after, though, Addison made it 2-0, capitalising on a poor clearance to beat the advancing keeper.

Jason Bastow in the Civil Service net pulled off a one-handed save to repel James Stuart's 20-yard shot just after the half-hour, while Clifford’s Jason Lowe saved at Addison's feet at the other end.

Day went close again at the end of the half with a 25-yard free kick.

Addison wasted no time completing his hat-trick after the break, picking up a rebound off his own shot to score on 47 minutes.

Five minutes later, Tom Deighton eased a near-post header past Bastow to reduce Clifford's deficit and, on 63 minutes, the comeback was on as Service failed to clear and Robinson fired home.

After Robinson's dismissal, Clifford battled well with 10 men, but hat-trick hero Addison made the game safe, rifling in after breaking away.

The cup, sponsored by Construction Marine Ltd, was presented by York FA president Roy Ellwood.
