Northerners scored every goal at Blanche Pierre Lane last night – but the chocolate-and-blues were on the wrong end of a piece of history.

The Island Under-18s once again showed that they were the best team in this season’s Ross Gower Stranger Cup, this time when it mattered most with the prestigious trophy at stake, as they won 5-1 to lift the silverware for the first time.

The final was virtually over as a contest at half-time, by which stage the juniors were three goals to the good with George McNeela, Owen Wallbridge and Archie Drillot having put them 3-0 up.

North did managed to reduce the deficit briefly in the second half when Joe Alvarez slotted home, but Brandon Wallace soon restored the three-goal cushion before man-of-the-match Jamie Smith added the coup de grace.

Meanwhile, St Martin’s hopes of a quintuple are over after they lost their Guernsey FA Cup semi-final to Rovers on a penalty shoot-out at the Track. The game had ended 2-2.
