AFC Chelmondiston made amends for finishing runners-up 12 months ago as they lifted this season’s Suffolk FA Sunday Cup.
The Ipswich Sunday Football League Premier Division champions won 7-6 on penalties against Bury & District Sunday League side Mellis following a 3-3 draw after extra time.
Ethan Clarke gave AFC Chelmondiston the lead but three goals either side of the interval – two from Will Goulding and one from Harry Rolingson – put Mellis 3-1 ahead.
Carl Matthews and Reumel Codrington drew AFC Chelmondiston level to force extra time, before keeper John Houchill saved two penalties to seal their win.
It was a fitting occasion to mark the first of seven Suffolk FA county cup finals to be staged at Colchester United’s Weston Homes Community Stadium over nine days.
