WHAT a way to end the campaign with silverware!

Ruthin Town have been brilliant all season in Cymru North and they capped their cracking campaign with a thrilling 4-3 victory versus Buckley Town in the final of the North East Wales FA Challenge Cup.

It was Dan Moore's Buckley who looked to be on course to lift the cup when they held a 3-2 advantage with time almost up.

However, Matty Evans headed in a last gasp equaliser to take the tie into extra time, where Jamie Cumming's 110th minute spot kick settled a thriller in Ruthin's favour.

Joint Ruthin boss Phil Hudson said on Twitter: "What a night that was... for the

@RuthinTownFC lads, amazing support there from young to old and hopefully sent you all home with a smile on your face.

"Players and all committee behind scenes absolutely superb up the town."

Fellow boss Tommy Holmes added: "Some game... for the neutral.

"Had a bit of everything.

"Thanks for the unbelievable support as always & to see what it meant to everyone involved was amazing.

"So much hard work from all of us at the club together went into lifting this trophy."

There was an all action end to the first half after Matty Hill latched on to a through ball to hand Ruthin the lead after half-an-hour.

Asa Hamilton's penalty hauled the visiting Town level and that was that until injury time at the end of the first half.

Ruthin would get their noses in front once more as Jamie Cumming's individual goal made it 2-1.

Back came Buckley, though, and Hamilton's second successful spot kick made it two-apiece right on the stroke of half-time.

Ruthin started the second half in positive fashion and they were looking to regain the lead.

They created a few half-chances, but they couldn't find another breakthrough.

Instead, it was Buckley who went 3-2 ahead in the 72nd minute.

Connor Littler made the most of a defensive mix-up to bag this goal.

In response, Ruthin introduced substitutes Llyr Morris and Josh Jones off the bench and they both looked lively up front.

It looked like the cup would be heading to Buckley, but Ruthin were able to level things up from the final attack.

Jamie Cumming's cross was headed in by captain Matty Evans to take the final into extra time.

Ruthin had the better of things as the energy-sapping extra time arrived.

Sam Rickett's fine effort hit the crossbar, while Matty Hill was inches away from scoring.

The pivotal moment arrived on 110 minutes.

Sam Rickett was brought down in the box for a penalty to be awarded and Jamie Cumming stepped up to convert it.

Speaking to the Buckley Town Facebook page, visiting boss Dan Moore said: "I'm really proud of them, because we've had obviously a couple of injuries of late.

"Jake Roberts played really when he maybe shouldn't have.

"Jake hasn't kicked a ball since the Llanrhaeadr game when he picked up his injury.

"Obviously, we've lost Scott McHarrie.

"We've ended up with a couple of square pegs in round holes.

"A bit of unavailability... but I'm really proud of the players who applied themselves."
