Corby Town missed out on Red Insure Cup glory as they lost their final with Poole Town on away goals.

The sides - who sit first and second in the Southern League Premier Division - went into the second leg level after a 1-1 draw at Steel Park a fortnight ago.

It meant the Steelmen had to score if they were to have any chance of taking the trophy.

However, despite chance for both, neither club could break the deadlock as it finished 0-0 at the Tatnam Ground.

Herve Pepe N’Goma came the closest to scoring when he turned Cleveland Taylor’s free-kick on to the post with around an hour gone in the match.

Paul Walker was called on to make some good saves at the other end but it was solid home defence that ensured the Southern League Premier Division leaders who held on to claim the trophy.
