Cumbrian star Jarrad Branthwaite is a cup winner in the Netherlands.

The defender was in the PSV Eindhoven side that edged past Ajax on penalties in the KNVB Cup final.

And their victory came despite an own-goal from the Wigton star in the final, which finished 1-1 after 90 minutes.

Branthwaite, who is on loan from Everton, netted at the wrong end in the 42nd minute as Ajax took the lead.

But a 67th-minute strike from Thorgan Hazard brought Ruud van Nistelrooy's PSV level.

Neither side could find a winner in 90 minutes or in extra-time.

PSV then went on to win the shoot-out 3-2 to claim a second successive Dutch Cup.

It is the first silverware of 20-year-old Branthwaite's professional career.

The former Carlisle United defender has impressed during his loan spell and has reportedly been attracting interest from a number of top European clubs.
