22 mins - Luis Medina heads over and gets a whack at the same time.

29 mins - Bodkin tests the keeper again but McEntergart is up to it.

31 mins - CLOSE! Vines usually scores from there, but this time he sees his header, from a Pilbeam cross, go wide

40 mins - CLOSE! Fitzgerald sees his shot saved before Bodkin has a shot blocked

45 mins -Walker convinced he should have had a penalty after wriggling away from two defenders in the box. On the break Medina is fouled by Wilson, both get booked.

Half-Time 0-0

46 mins - Pilbeam's curling effort clips the bar. Chatham starting where they left off.

49 mins - Vines heads over from a Pilbeam cross.

51 mins - PENALTY! Daly fouls Pilbeam - Vines skies the penalty over the bar!

53 mins - Incredible save from a Paul Butler effort. Chatham should have won this by now.

60-70 mins - The introduction of Joe Healy has improved Beckenham's play. They still fail to test the keeper though.

75 mins - Reece Butler shoots over after a decent Chatham move.

76 mins - Ref waves away Beckenham's appeals for a penalty.

79 mins - A Joe Healy ball across the six yard box is missed by everyone!

82 mins - Atkins shoots wide. Probably should have done better.

90 mins - Medina sees his shot saved on the line.

Full Time 0-0 Extra Time to be played

92 mins - DISALLOWED GOAL - A long throw from Nathan Daly evades everyone and ends up in the back of the net, but you can't score like that so the celebrations from Becks are cut short.

100 mins - GOAL! Michael Hagan scores from close range to give Chatham Town the lead!

102 mins - Good run and shot from Bodkin is blocked for a corner.

112 mins - Atkins fires wide - Becks are throwing everything forward, will they get the equaliser?

114 mins - Bennett finds the net! But the offside flag goes up! - Tight one that!

118 mins - Great double save from Dan Ellis, first from Atkins then Bennett.

Full Time 1-0 To Chatham Town - They are the Kent Senior Trophy winners!
