I said before the game it was fate - we'd beaten Hanwell Town at Northwood to win the Cup the first time, then we beat Northwood at Wealdstone for the second Cup, so beating Wealdstone at Hanwell completed the trilogy.
A correct but brave decision by the ref to give us a penalty after just 30 seconds for a foul on Dan, and Fish stroked the penalty home like an old master after 75 seconds. We had plenty of territory in the Stones half and a good few shots, but Wealdstone made us sweat on a number of occasions, so the second goal was vital, and it came in the 31st when (I think) Bayley played a lovely defence splitting through ball which Fleminho hammered home with all his weight behind it from the edge of the box. Stones hit the bar with a free kick in the 45th, which was a taster for the rest of the match, despite the fact we deserved the half time lead.
Stones were very much on the front foot after the break, and Ashford legend Ricky Wellard scored unmarked in the 54th for 2-1. Fair play to the lad who didn't appear to celebrate much. After that, it was attritional for the remaining 45 minutes including stoppage time, but our defence held firm and had to, with so many clearances in around the six yard box, Tyler making at least three superb goal-stopping saves and Ginger Bobby Moore making an incredible goalline clearance. We started believing in ourselves in the last fifteen minutes and Bitz could have made it safe (or safer), but no matter. The lads did it, and they were superb. So proud. Well done everyone!
