The Reserve team lost 4-3 in the Final of the Midland Combination Challenge Trophy against Redditch United who had won the League title 24 hours earlier. The pitch at the Valley only passed a late inspection and it did not help the Lambs game but after going down to an early goal in the 5th minute a Jake Healy double in the 14th & 15th min looked to put the team on their way but another goal by Redditch in the 33rd minute sent the teams into the break all square at 2-2. In the second half the Lambs piled the pressure on and Kieran Clayton ended a good move by heading home in the 62nd minute from close range. The 3-2 lead did not last long as Rediitch scored twice in two minutes (68th & 69th min)to secure the double.
