The Select side were 1-0 up at half-time thanks to a fine finish from Paul Sullivan and after the goal they looked in solid control.

However, the second 45 minutes was a totally different story with the Rag completely overpowering their opponents.

Goals from Pete Richardson, who scored a brace, Luke Dowin and Damian High completely changed the perspective of the game.

The Select side briefly got themselves back into the contest through Sullivan again, but the strike proved to be no more than a consolation.

After the game the trophy was presented by Scotty’s parents Steve and Jayne.
