Caskey double sets up cup triumph
Jake Caskey scored twice as Albion Reserves won the Sussex Senior Cup for the third time in four years.
It capped a memorable few days for the schoolboy who was on the bench for Albion's first team at MK Dons on Saturday.
Caskey broke the deadlock in the 22nd minute, running on to Dean Cox's pass to fire into the far corner.
Virgo flashed a header across the face of goal from a James Smith and Cox failed to get hold of his shot with goalkeeper Anthony Ender out of his goal as Albion bossed proceedings.
A second goal followed six minutes before the break when Cox teed up Caskey to fire through the legs of two defenders into the far corner.
Cox should have added to the tally with a header which he put wide early in the second half while Bognor responded with Jacob Walcott drawing a good save from Mitchell Walker.
Albion were handed a third goal on a plate on 63 minutes when Mickey Demetriou tried to chest a harmless looking Cox cross back to his goalkeeper but Steven Brinkhurst nipped in to fire home.
Bognor never stopped battling and were unlucky when Jason Prior's header cannoned back off the crossbar.
But George Barker wrapped up victory in the 74th-minute with an unstoppable finish after robbing defender Bond.
