Before the match started there was a great show of sportsmanship.

With Supermarine only able to field 10 players, Bassett offered to reduce their outfield to the same number.

On the field the match was a close encounter with chances at a minimum in the first half.

Only minutes remained before half-time when Supermarine had a chance to go into the break with a two-goal advantage after Bassett upended a striker on the edge of the penalty area. The resulting spot kick was wasted however as the relieved Bassett keeper saw the penalty sail over the crossbar to safety.

Bassett hit the bar with a fierce shot from the right edge of box as the second-half got underway and Supermarine were unlucky with a great shot hooked off the line by the last defender.

As Bassett began to pile the pressure on, they had a shot cleared off the line and the keeper made a good save as Supermarine rode their luck.

With 20 mins left, Bassett finally threw on the extra man as they realised that they were in danger of losing the tie.

Bassett piled immense pressure onto Supermarine.

As the clock ran down, Bassett fired inches wide as their coaches held their heads in frustration.

When the referee blew the whistle at full-time it was Supermarine who booked a place in the final.
