Platt Win Fisher Trophy

Goalkeeper Brown is unable to save battling Shoreham.

Platt 3     Shoreham  1

Platt beat Shoreham 3-1 at Seal on Wednesday evening to carry off the Fisher Trophy - but were given a tough fight by their Sevenoaks Division Two opponents.

Platt eased into a 3-0 lead midway through the second period but Shoreham kept battling on and eventually netted a deserved consolation.

Shoreham's goalkeeper Brown enjoyed an excellent match. His began with a splendid penalty save from Benn after just five minutes and he pulled off numerous goal-saving stops.

It was 35 minutes before Platt went ahead, Benn picking up a loose ball and dribbling around the goalkeeper to score.

The first-half was an even affair, with both sides having good chances, but the start of the second-half saw Platt taking more control and netting twice.

Whiffen notched the first with a low shot and Benn scored the second with a header.

Bristow claimed a late goal for Shoreham but by that time Platt had already sealed the result.

Referee Gillam handled the match in competent style.

Team: T.Whiffen, G.Evans, N.Harvey, E.Thompson, C.Scott, D.Green, T.Hollebon, G.Adams, P.Palmer, D.Howell, P.Hole, C.Benn
