Chinnor stormed into the Oxfordshire Cup final with a resounding 44-17 victory over holders Oxford Harlequins at Kingsey Road.

And in the final at Iffley Road on Sunday, April 16, they will meet Henley Alliance - the National League 1 club's second team - who walloped Grove 55-3.

For several years now, these have been regarded as the top two clubs in the county. But, strangely, it is the first time they have met in the final since 1985 when Henley won 17-12.

Following heir massive 52-6 league victory over Quins the previous week, Chinnor went into Saturday's clash as strong favourites - and they did not let their supporters down.

In cold, windy conditions, Quins took an early lead, while playing against the elements, as full back Andy Noyce landed a third-minute penalty.

Six minutes later Chinnor responded when tight head prop Bob Harris burst over for an unconverted try.

Quins were again caught napping in the 23rd minute when full back Alan Cawston touched down for a try that flyhalf James Cathcart converted.

Quins lost hooker Alistair Halsall with a serious neck injury to be replaced by Paul Molyneux.

In the next 12 minutes, Chinnor increased their lead with tries from Cawston and Cathcart who also converted a penalty to make the half-time score 29-3.

The game was all over, but just to make sure, Chinnor took advantage of some slack defending to score further tries from winger Charlie Oyebade and young scrum half Morgan Thompson,.

Cathcart landed a furtther penalty and conversion to take his tally to 19 points.

In the meantime, despite losing left wing Elio Recchia with a broken arm, Quins replied when fly half Henry Pooler sliced through the Chinnor defence for a try, converted by Noyce.

Quins staged a strong finish to send back row Patrick Soper in for a consolation try, which Noyce converted to complete the scoring
