Whitton United retain Suffolk Senior Cup

AN 89th minute goal from substitute Alan Mills saw Whitton United retain the Suffolk Senior Cup at Portman Road tonight.

Opponents Long Melford took the lead through Jamie Williams two minutes into the second half, but Chris Williams equalised in the 66th minute.

The game looked to be heading for extra time until Mills, who had joined the action as a 69th minute substitute, tried his luck from just outside the penalty area and the ball squirmed underneath Melford goalkeeper Paul Wood for the winner.
