Victory for Gary Waddock's Aldershot: BBC - Aldershot Town win Setanta Shield
Aldershot Town beat Rushden & Diamonds on penalties to win the Setanta Shield after the sides had drawn 3-3.
Junior Mendes put the Shots ahead on 71 minutes, but Andy Burgess soon levelled to take the game to extra time.
Kirk Hudson restored Aldershot's lead before Burgess missed a penalty and Scott Donnelly made it 3-1 to Town.
However, Burgess was successful with a second spot-kick, and a late Michael Rankine strike ensured penalties - but the Shots won the shoot-out 5-4.
Andy Gooding and Chris Hope were the unlucky Diamonds players to miss their kicks as Aldershot triumphed in the Shield - formerly the Conference's League Cup, which was being staged for the first time since 2005.
The final was played at Aldershot's Recreation Ground home after a toss of a coin.

Former QPR Winger, Kieron St Aimie played 70 minutes of the goaless game for Barnet against Darlington before Puncheon came on. BBC

QPR Official Site - All Change"
In the wake of John Gregory's arrival as QPR manager, the Club have parted company with four of their backroom team.
Reserve Team Manager Justin Skinner, Head of Recruitment John O'Brien, Assistant Physiotherapist Bobby Bacic and Team Masseur Graham Staddon have all left the Club, with two new staff members set to be announced in the next 24 hours.
The Club wishes to thank the quartet for their services to QPR, while also wishing them all the best for the future.

Official Site - NEW ADDITIONS
Queens Park Rangers Football Club are delighted to welcome Richard Hill and Joe Dunbar to the Club.
Hill joins John Gregory's backroom staff as a coach, while Dunbar is employed as a Sports Performance Coach.
The pair will work closely alongside the new gaffer, who was understandably pleased with their appointments: "Joe was Lennox Lewis' personal trainer. When Lennox was getting ready for a fight, he had a ten week period where Joe was the guy who had to get him up to speed.
"Since Lennox has retired, Joe has had a bit more time on his hands and has been working for me here at the Club on a semi-part-time basis.
"Hilly worked with me at Wycombe between 1996 and 1998. When I went to Aston Villa he went to Gillingham, so he knows this division very well and knows how to survive in it. He will be working alongside me.''
