East Preston have won their second trophy of the season.

The County League champions collected the John O’Hara League Cup this morning by beating Crowborough 1-0 at Shoreham.

Skipper Joe Shelley scored the only goal of the contest on 57 minutes when he headed home Darren Boswell’s corner from the left.

Crowborough had the best chance of a tight first half when Chris Ransome seized on Charlie Farmer’s weak backpass but could not direct his effort on target.

EP had more control of the second period, particularly after Crows were reduced to ten men when Paul Butler was sent off for a second bookable offence on 71 minutes.

East Preston had Shaheen Sadough dismissed for a second yellow in the closing stages.

They will now bid to complete a treble when they take on Horsham YMCA in the Sussex RUR Cup final at Culver Road, Lancing on Wednesday.
