The Kent Senior Trophy Final: Sheppey United 2 Hollands & Blair 1
Sheppey United came from behind to lift the Kent Senior Trophy for the second time this year.
Sunday’s match at the Gallagher Stadium, played in front of a crowd of 1,168, came alive in the second half with Blair’s Jack Simon scoring with a well-taken free-kick shortly after the restart.
But Sheppey - who in February won the delayed 2019/20 final - responded thanks to the intervention of a couple of substitutes.
With 15 minutes left Michael Hagan came off the bench and with his first contribution struck the ball home from a free-kick. Sheppey then scored an 86th minute winner as substitute Connor Wilkins picked out Dean Grant to net at the near post.
Both teams ended the match with 10 men. Blair’s Luke Exall and Sheppey’s Dan Birch picked up second bookings to make an early exit.
Blair almost grabbed a stoppage-time equaliser, with a shot from Simon outside the box, but Sheppey keeper Adam Molloy pulled off a super save.
