Sheppey United came from behind to win the Kent Senior Trophy for the second time this season.
Dean Grant hit the winner four minutes from time to add the 2021/22 Trophy to their collection after winning the delayed 2019/20 final back in February.
Jack Simon’s well-struck free-kick had put underdogs Blair ahead early on in the second half but that was matched by substitute Michael Hagan’s set-piece effort for Sheppey, scoring with his first touch before Grant fired home late on.
Both teams ended Sunday's final with 10 men after late red cards for Blair’s Luke Exall and Sheppey’s Dan Birch.
The two teams meet again at Sheppey in the league on Saturday as Ernie Batten’s men continue to look for a quadruple of trophies, currently sitting top of the Southern Counties East Premier Division and also in the final of the Challenge Cup.
The first half had none of the excitement that fans watched in the second. Neither keeper was troubled in an opening 45 which saw referee Richard Joss hand out more cards than there were shots in target.
A strong challenge from Chris Saunders saw the Blair man go in the book while Sheppey captain Billy Bennett was also cautioned for a late tackle. Mr Joss also showed a red card to Blair substitute Ricky Freeman after an exchange of words from the bench.
Blair were unable to make the most of a couple of promising set-piece positions but had managed to keep the league leaders relatively quiet at the other end. Liam Gillies and Warren Mfula puts efforts over the bar.
George Benner had a shot deflected wide for the Medway side as the teams reached the break without a goal.
Sheppey striker Dean Grant had a shot deflected wide moments after the restart, running onto a weighted pass from Richie Hamill, but it was Blair who opened the scoring three minutes into the second half.
A free-kick was given away centrally and from 25 yards Jack Simon picked out the top corner, with Sheppey keeper Adam Molloy getting a hand to the shot but being unable to keep it out.
Moments later Simon laid a chance on a plate for Dean James but Molloy was equal to the shot. Having had a quiet first 45, the Sheppey keeper was being kept busy and had to also save from Stephen Smith.
The game had opened up and Gillies worked a couple of openings inside the Blair box but could find no way through with the shots.
Molloy had to be alert to punch clear and deny James, who took a blow for his troubles, while Louis Valencia also had a pop.
There was a flashpoint 20 minutes into the second half when Dan Birch was booked for an incident with Blair defender Ben Brown, with claims that the Sheppey man had bitten the arm of his opponent. Brown showed the officials his arm, and the alleged injury, but Mr Joss opted to caution the United player.
Hamill bent a free-kick inches wide as Sheppey looked for a way back in and more chances followed as Mitchell Ware superbly denied Dean Grant before Jefferson Aibangbee fired wide.
Sheppey got back on level terms with a free-kick of their own, struck by substitute Hagan in the 76th minute, just seconds after entering play. He had only just been introduced when he fired home.
Sheppey took the lead with four minutes left, Grant firing home at the near post after getting on the end of Connor Wilkins’ low cross.
Blair ended the match with 10 men as substitute Luke Exall picked up two late bookings and Sheppey’s Birch quickly followed him after a rash challenge saw him get a second yellow.
Simon nearly levelled the scores in stoppage-time with a superb effort from distance but Molloy tipped it over the bar.
