The hosts, who were the better side, had the cup glory on the night and deserved their victory. The talking point of the game was the red card given to The Tons goal keeper when he handled the ball on in the box/on the edge of the box/outside of the box - Have a look on the below video and pictures to see if the referee made the correct decision? From The Cold End's exclusive 'merged' picture it looks like it was just outside the box so the handball did stop a clear goal-scoring opportunity so the man in the middle has to make a hard choice?

|The referee points that it was outside of the box|
|Eton Manor prepare to take the free kick right on the edge of the box|
|The three pictures merged together - the position of the ball when handled and when placed for the free kick on the edge of the box show it was probably handball outside of the box?|
A special mention must go the loyal band of people who support and keep the famous Eton Manor FC name going on some of the lowest crowds (just an average of 23 for league games this season) at this level of football. They face London APSA in the next round of the competition.
