Badshot Lea co-manager Gavin Smith couldn't hide his delight after the Baggies beat Westfield 2-0 in the Aldershot Senior Cup final last night (Tuesday).

The Baggies held their nerve to beat their Step 4 opponents at Aldershot Town's EBB Stadium to round off a hugely successful season which has included promotion from the Combined Counties Premier Division South.

After a tight first half, Westfield were reduced to ten men in the 59th minute when Jonathan Sanchez was sent off for a dangerous tackle.

The Baggies soon made their numerical advantage count, and won a penalty on 67 minutes. Mal Thomas' effort was superbly saved by Westfield keeper Sonny Wheeler, but Thomas confidently smashed home the rebound.

George Frise scored the second on 78 minutes when he fired home from a corner to seal the victory.

Badshot Lea keeper Craig Bradshaw made an excellent save from close range late on, but otherwise the Baggies comfortably held on to win the cup.

Smith was delighted to end the season with silverware, although he felt his side could have played better.

"We wanted to win something – promotion was brilliant but we wanted to win a cup," said Smith.

"It was a good test for us. The first half was pretty even with little bits of quality, but we were disappointed – nothing really happened.

"We felt we could have played more – we didn't trust ourselves, didn't want the ball and weren't brave enough.

"In the second half we looked tired and they came out strongly – I thought they were going to get a goal.

"The sending off has helped us, because they looked tired with ten.

"They had a little period at the end – we were disappointed that we didn't keep the ball better.

"It was good to see where we're at against a team that finished mid-table in the league above. I feel we need to be better."
