FOOTBALL: Upsets earn Wallingford and Westminster the glory

6:00am Wednesday 16th April 2014

Underdogs Wallingford Town Res came from behind to beat Faringdon Town A 2-1 in the North Berks League Cup final.

Chris Wills put Division 4 side Faringdon ahead from the penalty spot, but goals from Barry Primmer and Charlie Lee won the Cup for their Division 5 opponents.

There was also an upset as Westminster overcame Division 2 side East Hendred 2-0 to win the North Berks War Memorial Cup for the first time, having been beaten finalists in 1923 and 1999.

Simon Joyce put the Division 3 side in front inside the first minute of the final, before a second-half strike from Dean Sillence sealed victory for Westminster.
