DARLEY Dale Eagles under eights rounded off their season in nailbiting but successful style by lifting the Hellison Invitation Cup.

In a match at Matlock Town FC’s ground, they took on Chesterfield Town in an encounter that ended scoreless and therefore went to penalties.

The Eagles held their nerve to win 4-2 on penalties and end the season unbeaten.

In the shootout, Dan Brown, Jamie Williams, Callum Furnival and Ashley Hill converted emphatically to set off the celebrations for the victorious side.
