Chris McPhee's first-half strike earned Ebbsfleet victory in the FA Trophy final against Torquay at Wembley.

McPhee went from villain to hero after he saw a first-half penalty expertly saved by Martin Rice, making amends by tapping in John Akinde's cross.

Akinde hit the post after the break before Torquay fought back, Tim Sills' header cleared off the line.

Elliott Benyon had a golden chance to level late on but he headed wide from six yards and Ebbsfleet held on.
