FIRST-TIME entrants Park Rovers and SM Kickers captured the Bull Investments Golden League and Knockout competitions, respectively, in finals played at the NWC playing field on Sunday.

Park Rovers created the biggest impact in the competition and eventually defeated two-time league winners and defending champions Santos 1-0 in the final of the double-header.

Caple Clarke scored the winning goal midway the first half. What is ironic is that it was the third time that Park Rovers were defeating Santos for the season and on each occasion Clarke scored. A real plus for Park Rovers is that they like the proverbial eagle rose from off the foot of the standings to reach the final and dethrone the former masters.

Santos actually started well with Trevor 'TC' Campbell looking confident in defence. However, after a high ball that was centred toward the Santos goal that slid off the back of Clarke to land outside the reach of goalkeeper Wayne Shaw, the discipline of the game broke down and play became ragged.

Earlier, S M Kickers defeated Kush 3-2 on penalties after ending 0-0 in the opening game to win the KO title.

Raymond Williams, Verol Bailey and Mervin Campbell converted for SM Kickers, while Claude Palmer and Lincoln Creig replied for Kush.

At the prize-giving Jerome Wilson of Park Rovers was voted MVP, while the leading goalscorer was Rohan McDermoth with 10 goals.

In the KO section, Verol Bailey was voted MVP.
