Castletown 1-0 Pulrose Utd

Ten-man Castletown emerged 1-0 victors in a hard fought and controversy-laden Paul Henry Gold Cup final against Pulrose United.

With the match goalless heading into the closing stages, Pulrose were awarded a penalty when Owen Canipa was felled in the box.

It got even worse for Town when Paddy Cooper was dismissed for his displeasure at the decision.

Marc Priestnal slotted home the subsequent spot kick, but was ordered to re-take and his effort crashed against the bar in his second attempt.

And with little time left on the clock, Castletown man Kiran Collister's back post header found the back of the net to win the cup for the Southerners.
