The final of the 2013 FA Trophy played between Wrexham and Grimsby Town ended with the former team winning over the latter 4–1 in a penalty shoot-out with both the teams having drawn in the normal time of 90 minutes. Grimsby Town led over Wrexham with a solitary goal scored by Andy Cook in the 71st minute, but Wrexham equalised as captain Keates was fouled inside the box and Kevin Thornton scored the resulting penalty spot-kick. In the ensuing extra time both the teams failed to score leading to a penalty shoot-out. The spot kicks from Adrian Cieslewicz, Danny Wright, Chris Westwood and finally Johnny Hunt, led to Wrexham's victory. [2] [3]
