The Conway Cup final between Gosforth and Workington Athletic took pride of place in the weekend’s fixtures.

The first half saw both sides miss gilt-edged chances to take the lead, although Workington Athletic thought they had scored when a corner was bundled in but referee Karl Sanderson disallowed the effort for a foul.

The game remained scoreless at half time but after the break Athletic created a number of chances which Gosforth dealt with before taking the lead themselves when Calum Henderson headed in from a corner.

Not to be outdone, Athletic earned a deserved equaliser with five minutes of normal time left as Connor Hammell took a quick corner and planted the ball onto the head of Paul Benson who scored.

The game became fragmented in extra time and the dreaded penalty shootout would decide the destination of the cup.

Both keepers made saves but in the end it was Gosforth who came out victorious in sudden death, winning 5-4 to take the trophy.

Three games were postponed as matches at Bransty and Cockermouth in the Premier Division and Mirehouse in Division One fell foul of the weather.
