Ashford United suffered a disappointing 4-0 defeat to Southern Counties East League rivals Beckenham Town in the final of the Kent Senior Trophy in front of a crowd of more than 400 at Longmead Stadium at Tonbridge on Sunday.
Two late goals by Jamie Humphries completed a comfortable victory for underdogs Town who won their first major silverware in the club's 127-year history, having lost in three previous finals
Both sides finished with 10 men after Ashford's Liam Whiting and Beckenham substitute Joe Jackson were both sent off for two bookable offences.
Jamie Marshall fired Beckenham ahead after only 11 minutes from a direct free-kick, before Travis Gregory doubled the lead early in the second half.
United's Pat Kingwell, Liam Whiting and sub Gary Mickelborough went close in the second half, only for Humphries to settle the contest with two breakaway goals in the closing stages.
Title-chasers United are back in action on Tuesday when they face Erith Town.
They start the game second, two points behind leaders Whyteleafe who play Canterbury City at Herne Bay the following evening.
