Newport Under 17s won the Mid Solent Junior B cup today, beating Havant & Waterlooville 5-4 on Penalties after the game finished 2-2 after 90 minutes.

Newport found themselves 2-0 down at half time, but came out stronger in the 2nd half and pulled a goal back by substitute Adrian Voigt midway through the half, but with 3 minutes remaining found an equaliser through Harry Cheek after a scramble in the 6 yard box forced the game into a penalty shootout.

In the shootout goalkeeper Fraser Law saved one and Havant missed one, meaning that Harry Cheek had to score to win the cup for Newport and he calmly placed his effort into the corner, to win the penalty shootout 5-4.
