REDS WIN SENIOR CUP AFTER PENALTY SHOOT-OUT

Tuesday Apr 26, 2016

Alfreton Town emerged victorious from a penalty shoot-out to lift the Derbyshire Senior Cup after a goalless draw with Belper Town in front of 469 at Ilkeston FC's New Manor Ground.

The success ended a thirteen year wait for the trophy which has now been won nine times by the Reds.

Reds man of the match Matt Duke saved Alex Steadman's fifth penalty for the Nailers (picture by kind courtesy of Eric Gregory) after which Ryan Wilson netted for Alfreton to give Nicky Law's side a 4-3 victory.

Prior to that, Louis Keenan had fired Belper ahead with the first spot-kick of the shoot-out.

Dan Bradley equalised before Michael Armstrong fired over for the Nailers. Sam Jones netted to put the Reds 2-1 up, Jonathan Williams scored to make it 2-2 then Todd Jordan made it 3-2 to Alfreton.

Kyle Bryant netted for Belper to make it 3-3 but Niall Heaton saw his effort saved. Duke saved Steadman's before Wilson sealed the win for Alfreton.
