AFC Wanderers celebrated county cup success at Carrow Road last night after defeating Windmill 2-1 in a keenly contested Sunday Senior Cup final.

Both sides made quick start and created early chances. First up, in the second minute, AFC Wanderers wide man Tim Henery turned sharply and fired a shot straight at Taurean Molloy. Then, a minute later, a free-kick from Windmill’s Scott Woodcock flew just the wrong side of the upright.

The first goal followed soon after, when AFC’s Lloyd Greening swept home from close range in the fourth minute.

The AFC fans had barely caught their breath before their team doubled the lead in the sixth minute, with Duane Eastall curling a shot past Molloy and in off the post.

Windmill should have pulled a goal back in the 12th minute through Chad Pillar, who had scored a hat-trick in a man of the match performance for Catfield in Monday’s Junior Cup final, however the forward headed straight at Duane Smith from a few yards out after the keeper had parried a long-range free-kick straight into his path.

Midfielder John Bell made no mistake in the 27th minute however, bending his shot neatly into the corner to pull a goal back for Windmill.

And that’s how the score stayed, with Kay having a goal disallowed for Wanderers in the second half and Windmill not managing to turn late pressure into the goal they needed, in front of a crowd of 685.

Pillar and Adam Thompson both went close for Windmill but AFC held on through five minutes of added time for the 2-1 win, which included Windmill players Bowers and Brandon Ingram being sent off.
