JOSH Jacka-Easter will forever be etched in St Augustine’s Premier League football history after scoring the winner in the final of the MWFA FA Cup on Wednesday night versus Pittwater RSL FC.
Saints were underdogs heading into the decider, but took the lead via a Peter Becklar header after half an hour.
Pitts equalised on the stroke of half-time, and extra time was on the cards before Jacka-Easter stepped up.
He combined with fellow substitute Robin Woods to head home at the death, and at the final whistle, pandemonium followed.
“I was so happy for the lads, it is the first piece of silverware the club has won at this level,” coach Nick Tomaino said.
“I am also sure it was the first time our team song – The Saints Go Marching In – was heard at Cromer Park.”
The players celebrated post game at Brookvale Hotel into the early hours of Thursday.
Saints run to the final was impressive.
They beat Narrabeen (4-0), Seaforth (7-0), Manly Vale (5-0) and Pitts (2-1) to hoist the trophy.
