Limavady United find clinical edge to seal North West success against Coleraine

Coleraine 0-2 Limavady United

Limavady United secured their first North West Senior Cup win since 2004 when they saw off Coleraine's young guns in the final at Ballycastle Road last night.

The Roesiders took an early lead. Cathair Friel slipped the Coleraine defence and fired a shot past keeper Andy Findlay in the seventh minute.

The Bannsiders went further behind when Andrew Devlin sent over a cross which left Findlay stranded and the ball crossed the line after hitting the post.

After the break, Coleraine still could not find a way past keeper Paul Wells, who produced a fine save to deny Ruaidhri Higgins. Before the end, a fierce drive from Garth Falconer crashed off the bar but that was as close as Coleraine got, while Friel wasted an opportunity to snatch a third goal for United.

Coleraine: Findlay, Watt, Falconer, Higgins, Taylor, Grissam, Whiteside (Francis 70), Law, McGonigle, McClay (McGuinness 54), McCorkhill (Mitchell 85). Subs: Harte.

Limavady United: Wells, Devlin, McIvor, McClelland (McFadden 11), Carlin, Morrison (Ferris 75), McMullan, Tommons, C Harkin, Friel, Logue. Subs: Owens, L Harkin, Kelly.

Referee: Stephen Wallace (Londonderry)
