The two sides played each other in a league fixture on Saturday which Villa won 5-2 but Hundleton were keen to avenge that loss.

Villa won the cup in the 2012/13 season and looked on course to repeat the feat when they took the lead mid-way through the first half but Hundleton hit back before half time and a goal five minutes into the second half gave them the win.

Hundleton made a bright start and could have gone ahead after three minutes but when the ball fell to Dylan Daniel on the edge of the box he shot wide.

A long throw in then gave the Villa a chance but Joey George’s effort was easily saved.

The Villa were playing some neat football and it was that which led to the breakthrough with twenty-three minutes gone. Richard Hilling played a neat one-two before laying the ball off for Joe John but after his shot was saved, Daniel Wilks pounced on the loose ball to knock it into the bottom corner.

The lead only lasted six minutes as the ball fell to Scott Brunton who curled a beautiful shot into the bottom right corner of the net.

Joe John saw a shot go wide for the Villa late in the half but it was still 1-1 when the whistle went.

Hundleton started the second half well and were unlucky not to go ahead when William Abrahams headed wide from a free kick.

However, just three minutes later they were ahead when Ben Pannell headed home Scott Brunton’s free kick.

Prendergast pushed forward looking for an equaliser but had to be weary of the Hundleton counter attack and with twenty minutes to go it was almost 3-1 but Scott Brunton shot wide under pressure from the recovering Villa defenders.

Jason Donohoe then tested the Villa keeper with a well-struck shot but Peter Blain was able to make a good save, pushing it away from danger.

The Villa poured forward in the final minutes and almost got a leveller with three minutes to go.

A long kick from the keeper evaded everyone and it looked as if the Hundleton keeper would gather the ball but he spilled allowing Jake Davies to take the ball but after he rounded the keeper he could only watch as his shot was cleared off the line by a desperate lunge from Hundleton’s Jack Richards.

From the resulting corner Damien Ellis headed straight at the keeper and Hundleton held on to win the cup.

The final whistle sparked jubilant scenes among the Hundleton players who were delighted to be going home with the silverware.

Hundleton: Daniel Griffiths, Rhodri Davies, Lee Murray, Jack Richards, Marc Edwards, Shaun Donohoe, William Abrahams, Ben Pannell, Scott Brunton, Dylan Davies, Jason Donohoe. Subs: Geraint Lewis, Marcus Adie, Lloyd Wilson.
