A very exciting and evenly matched Magee Cup Final staged at Cammell Laird 1907 FC saw PLCCFC triumph following a penalty shoot-out as they defeated One O’Clock Gun.
A first half of very few chances saw Gun take the lead through a penalty. Chris Reilly fired home with ease following an error by the PLCCFC keeper. Gun looked likely to increase their lead but some excellent PLCCFC defending denyed them.
The second period was a more evenly contested affair and following a corner PLCCFC captain, George Craven, glanced home the equaliser to set up a grandstand finish by both teams as they sought the winner.
The game ended all square at 1- 1, as neither team could convert their chances. The shoot-out resulted in a success for PLCCFC as they edged home 3-2 to take the trophy.
