Bognor Regis Town and Burgess Hill Town before kick-off

Jimmy Wild opened the scoring for the Rocks after just five minutes but Ross Murdoch levelled things up for the Hillians two minutes before half-time. But Tuck's extra-time goal proved to be the winner as Bognor Regis Town lifted the Sussex Senior Cup for the first time since 1987. Here's how we rated the players of both teams.

Made a huge error in fumbling Becks 25-yard strike in the lead up to the goal. Busier of the two keepers in the second-half and produced a great stop in extra-time
Called Hill keeper James into action early on. Just as adept at his attacking duties as his defensive ones.
Worked well in tandem down the left with Lethbridge in the opening stages of the first period. Hit a stinging shot which was marvellously saved by James in the opening moments of extra-time.
Assured but unspectacular shift from the Bognor man
Solid game at the back throughout before his unfortunate injury in extra-time. Replaced by Thomas Scutt at the start of the second period of extra-time
Looked solid as a rock at the back. Imperious in the air as he kept Hill's aerial threat quiet
Played some delightful through balls that sparked Bognor moves.
Good early chance in the game but hit side netting. Quiet game before being replaced by Doug Tuck at the start of extra-time
Opened the scoring for the Rocks on five minutes with a well taken finish. Contrived to miss from two-yards out in the first-half. Replaced on 76 minutes by Leon Maloney
Pressed the Hill defence into making a mistake for the goal. Somehow managed to blast wide after rounding James on 25 minutes. Did well to deliver the cross for Lethbridge nine minutes from the end.
Gave Hills defence a torrid time with his pace down the left flank early on. Sent three superb chances over the bar in the second-half but redeemed himself by setting up Tucks winner in extra-time.
Came on for Wild on 76 minutes. Blasted over the bar within minutes of coming on. Sloppy play in extra-time almost gifted Hill a goal in extra-time
Replaced Dunn at the start of extra-time. Did ever so well to slide his shot past James to see Bognor take the cup home. The Rocks' cup hero
Replaced the injured Field before half-time in extra-time.
Little he could do for the goals. Single-handedly kept Burgess Hill in the game in the first-half with three terrific stops. Made a fantastic flying save to keep out Leighs goal-bound effort.
Did well to block Wilds cross early on in the game. Swept clear several attacks in a solid night for the Belgian
Put his body on the line to keep Bognor at bay. Made a superb tackle in the box with minutes of the game remaining to prevent a clear-cut Rocks opportunity.
Cool, calm and collected at the back for Hill. Offered an aerial threat from set-pieces
Assured in his defensive duties. Replaced by Steve Sargent at the start of the second-half of extra-time
Started the counter attack that lead to Murdochs chance on the hour. Terrier-like in defence as he put pressure on Bognor's forwards
Lively and twinkle-toed. Relished running at the Bognor defence as his confidence grew. Forced Lincoln into a great save after the hour mark before stinging his hands with a well-struck drive in extra-time. Was Hills main creative outlet in extra-time.
Was in the right place at the right time from Lincolns poor parry to lay on the equaliser for Murdoch. A typically effective night from the midfielder
Tapped home from Hardings pass for the leveller. Last action of his game was to spurn a gilt-edged chance from six-yards out to make it 2-1 in the second-half. Replaced by Jack Malleret on 70 minutes.
Venomous 25-yard effort wasnt taken well by Lincoln in build up to the goal. Ever dependable in midfield and was his usual calm and composed self. Went about his business quietly but effectively
Put in a free-kick that troubled the Bognor backline in the first period. Turned on the afterburners to power down the left for Murdochs miss. Replaced by Farrell Ryder on 98 minutes
Replaced goalscorer Ross Murdoch on 70 minutes but failed to stamp his authority on the game
Replaced Smith-Joseph on 98 minutes. Was eager and full of running as he tried to make his mark
Replaced Michael Wilson in the second-half of extra-time
