Beeston Town had a good league season finishing runners up to Attenborough Cavaliers in the Long Eaton Sunday league. But MIS (Man In Space) from Eastwood had finished bottom of the Notts Sunday League first division with only Two wins all season. There was nothing between the sides in the first period as they went in 0-0. Ten minutes into the second half a cross was flicked on to the far post for a MIS striker to put his side ahead. The Notts FA officials were just putting the MIS green ribbons on the cup in the last couple of minutes when Beeston equalised from a low drive into the corner of the net.
Both sides scored in extra time to bring the game to a penalty decider. Beeston scored with their first but MIS missed. Both sides converted their second penalties and Beeston their third but MIS missed theirs. When Beeston hit the back of the net with their fourth it was game over with the Red ribbons of Beeston on the cup.
