TADLEY Calleva booked their place in the third round of the Wessex League Cup after they beat one of the competition favourites AFC Portchester 4-3 after a penalty shoot-out.

An an even opening 45 minutes the sides went in tied at 0-0. After the interval, the home side’s Connor Thorne hit the post and then with six minutes left, they were reduced to 10 men after Jordan Alves picked up a second yellow card.

Two minutes into added on time Porchester scored.

However, straight from the kick-off, Tadley won a free-kick and Luke Neller sent the ball for Daryll Phillips to head home and the final whistle was blown.
