Hampton & Richmond 1 Slough Town 3 Hampton & Richmond had Dean Wells sent off as their second cup final in three days ended, like the first, in a 3-1 defeat.

The red card proved a pivotal moment of a Bryco Cup final, coming shortly after Dudley Gardner had pulled Hampton level.

Slough Town had seen goalkeeper Michael Martin make good stops from Ryan Ashe and Richard Pacquette in the first 20 minutes, so it was against the run of play when they took the lead.

Full-back Josias Carbon cantered down the left and unleashed a missile which deceived keeper Kieron Drake and flashed into the net.

Parkin came to Slough's rescue again with a flying leap across goal to turn Alan Inns' shot away for the corner and Elliott Godfrey also went close twice as Hampton dominated.

They finally equalised when Pacquette held the ball up for Gardner who set himself before swerving a 25-yard shot past Parkin.

Then came the red card which came amid a punch-up after keeper Drake had been clattered in the air.

Wells threw the ball into the melee, an act deemed by referee Martin Darlow to be violent conduct, but harsh on the young defender who had been booked just twice all season.

Slough put Hampton under severe pressure in the second half and it finally told when Hodges restored their lead in the 75th minute.

Hampton through everybody forward in search of an equaliser, but after Ulasi was caught in possession on the edge of his own box, Hodges fired home Slough's third.

Hampton: Drake, Morley, Wells, Gardner (Fontana 70), Elverson, Jeffrey, Inns, Godfrey, Pacquette (Osman 63), Ashe (Fernandes 80), Ulasi.

Attendance: 745.
