Richard Lappin celebrated his return from injury by bagging the decisive goal for Hanover in Saturday’s cup victory.

Hanover edged past Oxford Sunnyside by 3-2 in the Marshall Cup courtesy of substitute Lappin.

Sunnyside held the lead on two occasions but Stephen Woods scored one equaliser then delivered a free-kick to force an own goal - with Lappin adding the final talking point.
