The latter stages of the final became a duel between Cornford and Harman almost exclusively.
High value shot after shot by Cornford was matched with great reflexes from Harman, who put on a goalkeeping performance worthy of the win.
Yet as the clock ticked down into the added time, the action wasn’t over yet.
With so little time remaining Hollington United threw everything for a much-needed equaliser.
Despite their efforts, this led to Danny Ellis picking-up a second yellow card following a coming together, but further drama was still yet to ensue. As moments later a Hollington free-kick which was struck superbly, but again saw Harman match it with a save.
However, Harman’s stop saw the ball drop in the six-yard box, which Andy Corrigan heads goal-wards, and looked to have given the Lions the equaliser, only for it to glance off Victor Penfold and into the gloves of the grateful Harman.
Appeals for a handball ensued from the Hollington players, but they were waved away as Jarvis Brook looked to spring a counter-attack only to be foiled by the assistants offside flag.
There was to be no fairy-tale ending for the Lion’s as Jarvis Brook closed out the win and made club history.
Speaking after the game, manager Jacob Baldwin couldn’t hide his emotions: “It’s an amazing feeling,” he said, “that right there is the cumulation of two years of hard work and graft.
“There have been a lot of downs, especially the final last year, so to get to this moment I’m just so proud of the boys and the time and effort they put in tonight.
“We’ve got such strong characters in that dressing room, and for them to have come back from last year and put in the performance they did tonight, is something really special."
Baldwin went on to add: “This is a special club and it’s really a community club.
“Most of the boys who played here tonight played some form of youth football at Jarvis Brook, so it feels most special to have done it in this way with this group of players.”
