The Derby Cup has returned to Castleland after Castleland United’s 2-1 victory over Republic secured their sixth cup title. The win was the Castlelanders first since their record fifth-in-a-row in 2008 and ended Legoland United’s run of 3 consecutive title wins.
The result was a truly bitter pill for Republic fans, whom are yet to see their club secure some silverware. Based in the city of Savoy and founded in 1993, Republic are one of the oldest registered professional teams. Club owner Ron Packs said it was now “time to focus on survival”. The club currently lie close to the Serie A relegation zone.
