Ulverston Rangers lifted the Furness Senior Cup on Monday night after a dramatic penalty shoot out against Walney Island.

On an excellent surface at Holker Street, both teams started well with Walney looking dangerous on the break and Ulverston playing some good football on the flanks.

Ulverston took the lead when Jack Gardner beat two men on the right wing and his low cross was clipped home by Chris Bolton after 20 minutes.

Walney thought they had equalised before half-time through a James Bailey header but somehow the Ulverston ‘keeper Jarek Bitner managed to keep the ball out of the net.

Gardner could have extended the Ulverston lead but his lob bounced on the six-yard line and then over the cross bar.

In the second half, the game was stretched but quality chances were limited until Walney’s top scorer Matt Lockley got on the end of a Chris Malone free kick to head the ball home with 25 minutes remaining.

Ulverston finished the game the stronger of the two sides and if it wasn’t for two outstanding saves from Walney ‘keeper Jordan Belcher, they could of won the tie in normal time.

As it was the game went to the dreaded spot kicks, where Walney contrived to miss four of their five penalties and Ulverston won the shoot-out 2-1.

Walney need to dust themselves down prior to the Challenge Cup Final against Furness Cavaliers, which takes place tomorrow (3pm kick-off) at Dalton's Railway Meadow ground.

Barrow Wanderers will face Bridge United in the final of the Horne Cup following their 4-2 penalty shoot-out win against Holker Old Boys A on Tuesday night.

The game finished 3-3, Dean Edmonds, Scott McDonald and Andrew Forristal with the Wanderers efforts, while Conor Erdis (2) and Sam Lightfoot were on target for the unlucky Holker. Bridge had safer passage with a 4-1 win against Millom A with, Reece Craig (2), Josh Harris and Haydn Skyrme their scorers.

Croftlands Park are on the brink of winning the Furness Premier League, as they staged a remarkable turnaround against Barrow Celtic.

Trailing 2-1 and having been reduced to ten men, Croftlands rallied to win 6-2. Their goals came from Chris Wraighte, Isaac Prosser, Ryan Ireland, Jordan McGarry, Tom Pavett and Macca Dixon.

Rob Johnson and Alex Hall replied for Celtic. The result means Croftlands have finished their season on 61 points. Vickerstown reserves can match their points tally, but would have to overturn a 14 goal deficit over their two remaining games to lift the title.
