Sheppey and Sheerness United will be refocusing their efforts on league glory this weekend after being crowned Kent Intermediate Challenge Shield champions.
Saturday night’s cup win has given manager Kevin Hake the taste of success and Sheppey now have eight more games left to try and clinch the Kent County League, Premier Division title.
Hake said: “We’ve got eight more finals now starting with Farnborough this Saturday.
“It’s fantastic to have won the cup but the main prize we’re chasing has always been the league.”
Sheppey beat Long Lane 3-1 at Faversham Town’s Salters Lane ground and while they were in cup action, their title rivals Metrogas slipped up at Tudor Sports, drawing 1-1.
“The players are lapping it all up at the moment,” said Hake. “We’re getting fantastic support and it was great to have so many supporters cheering us on at Faversham.”
Sheppey have won their last three games, in response to a defeat at Greenways.
Sheppey are away at Farnborough on Saturday and remain without injured captain Ciaran Aldous.
