Wycombe edge Chesham on penalties to lift county cup

TEENAGE goalkeeper Matt Ingram was the penalty shoot-out hero as Wycombe won the county cup for the 28th time at Adams Park.

TEENAGE goalkeeper Matt Ingram was the penalty shoot-out hero as Wycombe won the county cup for the 28th time at Adams Park.

Nothing separated Wanderers and Evo-Stik Premier Division promotion chasers Chesham United in 120 minutes in a tight affair on Tuesday night.

For the Generals, it was probably the last thing they needed ahead of a crunch play-off decider at the weekend while Wycombe fielded their young-guns to lift the title.

Chances were few and far between in normal time with Dave Fotheringham firing wide for Chesham and Blues striker Matt McClure forced to shoot off target from 35 yards.

Chesham were looking the more likely to break the deadlock with midfielder James Potton seeing his low drive come back off the post before Scott Thomas blazed over the bar.

Wycombe substitute Junior Morias proved lively for the home side and he came closest to settling the tie with nine minutes of extra-time to play but his fierce drive came back off the crossbar to mean only penalties could split the teams.

And Ingram, who signed a professional deal with Wycombe last week, saved spot-kicks from Chesham skipper Danny Talbot and Bruce Wilson to leave Morias to slot away the winning penalty for the League One side.
