Beoley Village will either meet Red Lion or Winyates Wanderers in the final of the Studley Charity Cup after beating Coldstream 3-2 after extra-time.

Ten minutes later, Village found themselves 2-1 up after the assistant referee spotted the ball had just crossed over the line.

However, Coldstream fought back and made it 2-2 ten minutes from time to set up a further 30 minutes of football.

With the game heading for a penalty shootout, Village were awarded a penalty five minutes from the end with Sean Meek slotting home with aplomb.
