Autumn Brown scored in the 29th minute with Steph Beaumont on target two minutes later as Surbiton’s penalty corner routines bore fruit on the path to national glory.

Belper won four titles in a row between 2004 and 2007, including a 4-0 win over Surbiton in 2005, the only occasion Surbiton reached the final before their current winning run.
