Walker Central 1 Wallington 3


John Paxton bagged a brace as Wallington lifted the Bay Plastics Challenge Cup last night.

The Greens raced into an early lead when Sam Walton fired in from the penalty spot in the 8th minute and they doubled their advantage just five minutes later when Paxton latched onto a poor back pass and tucked away into the net.

Walker were left with a mountain to climb when Paxton added his second in the 69th minute.

They did have a great chance to get back in it when they were awarded a penalty but could only groan as it was missed.

Central sub Christopher Hamilton did hit a consolation in the 85th minute but it couldn’t dampen the celebrations for Wallington boss Stephen Cowan, who was delighted to lift some silverware before his retirement at the end of the season.
