Excelsior took the lead on 18 minutes when Keiran Carr rifled home Matt Tye’s knock-down from a right-wing cross.

But after Shipston keeper Marcus Ireland had tipped over a fierce effort from Daniel Price, he could do little just before the half-hour mark when South Redditch player-manager Kevin Leggatt sprinted from the halfway line to connect with a corner from the right and steer the ball inside the post.

Despite chances for both teams the rest of the game was goalless, and the penalty shoot-out began badly for Shipston when Tye’s effort was saved by South Redditch keeper Adam Jervis.

Alex Seys, Kevin Hemmings and Nick Shurmer were all successful with their efforts for Shipston, but Nick Rumbold, Darrel Feesey, Conner Poole, Omar Pennicott and Garry Harvey all found the net to send the trophy back west.
