Woodside Celtic launched an amazing second half comeback against New London to lift the Alliance Cup to go with the Division One title already won.

New London stormed into the lead when Jerry Reeves slotted in from close range after a cross from the left wing after just 35 seconds. 35 minutes later Jason Hamett double New London's lead scoring low after a mistake in defence, to make the half time score 2-0 to New London and the game seemingly dead and buried.

Woodside Celtic came out with renewed vigour in the second half and when Jerrell Hammond was fouled 20 yards out, Lee Turner dispatched the resulting free kick into the top corner to half the deficit. Woodside Celtic continued to take the game to New London, and with 8 minutes remaining Dennis Williams nodded in from close range to level the scores and take the game heading for extra time.

With the fourth official holding the board for injury time, James Tester latched onto a through ball to slot home the winning goal which broke New London hearts, and completes a league a cup double for Woodside Celtic in the most dramatic fashion.
