Wroxham won the Norfolk Senior Cup in dramatic style this evening – after a 120th-minute penalty from striker Jamie Forshaw settled a remarkable final at Carrow Road.

Dereham looked on course to beat their Ryman North rivals thanks to Luke Tuttle following up his missed penalty in the second half of normal time but Forshaw levelled deep into injury-time after Magpies skipper Oli Willis was adjudged to have used his hand to prevent a goal, resulting in a red card and a penalty.

Forshaw then fired the Yachtsmen in front in the first half of extra-time but Toby Hilliard had seemed to tee up a penalty shoot-out when he levelled, only for Forshaw to score another penalty to complete his hat-trick and seal the win for Wroxham.
