Southport & District League Champions the Devonshire added the Colonel White Cup to their trophy cabinet on Tuesday evening as they beat FC Chivas by three goals to one, in front of a packed main stand at Haig Avenue.

A goal midway in the first half gave Devonshire a 1-0 half time lead and a clinical chip from the self acclaimed ‘Prince of Crossens’ aka Terry Murphy put them 2-0 up with half an hour remaining.
To their credit Chivas never gave up and looked the fitter of the two sides towards the end of the game, they duly pulled a well worked goal back with fifteen minutes left on the clock to ensure a close finish.

But with the clock ticking down Devonshire super sub Craig Johnson broke clear of his marker and put his yellow boots to good use with a slide rule ball through to Murphy who turned inside the area and fired home to make it 3-1.

Devonshire manager Mike Seddon and his right hand man Simon Unsworth then led the team up to collect their league and cup winner’s medals and two fine pieces of silverware to grace any trophy cabinet.

The mass army of delighted Devonshire supporters then departed the ground and made the short trip back to High Park to begin a night of wild celebrations with the team at the Devonshire Club.
