An extra-time goal from super-sub Alex Baldacchino saw AFC Portchester lift the Wessex League Cup, after beating Petersfield Town 1-0 at Wicor Rec

The Royals had Joe Bye sent off in the final minute of normal time but shrugged that off to deservedly win the trophy for the first time.

Baldacchino headed in the vital goal in the 101st minute after being set up by Joe Noakes.
