The nail-biting match was ended 0-0 at full time – and even 20 minutes of extra time failed to produce any goals.

Waterloo eventually triumphed over Bromley in a tense penalty shoot-out, winning 5-4.

Young players from the Waterloo U9, U11 and U12 teams ran onto the pitch to celebrate with their first team.
