Hatters led lead slip as Waders lift the trophy

The Town's hopes of an end-of-season double were dashed on Thursday night as Biggleswade Town fought back from a goal down to lift the Bedfordshire Senior Cup at Kenilworth Road.

The Hatters looked on course for an eighth success in the competition at half-time following Alex Wall's header in first-half stoppage time following a fine right-wing cross from Ian Rees.

But the Southern Premier League visitors hit back after the break and deservedly triumphed thanks to goals from brothers Lee and Sam Reed.

Lee struck a fantastic equaliser on 66 minutes - striking an effort from 25 yards that went in off the post - before Sam poked home an effort from close range 11 minutes later.

The Town struggled to create a serious opening to force an equaliser in the closing stages and the Waders were left to celebrate a second successive Beds Senior Cup win.

TOWN: Justham, Longden, Trotman, Tamplin, Lacey, Rees, Amu (sub Ngwala 80), Taiwo, C. Smith, Wall, Banton. Subs not used: King, Allman, Perry, Tayali.
