Dundalk FC were crowned 2019 EA SPORTS Cup winners in Derry last night, with Chris Shields stroking home the decisive spot-kick in the penalty shootout.

David Parkhouse put Derry ahead inside three minutes

But Michael Duffy levelled with a superb strike before half-time.

Yet The Candystripes re-took the initiative in the second half.

Disaster followed for the hosts...

And then Seán Gannon equalised.

The game went on...

... and on...

Glory for The Lilywhites.
