PARADISE are the new Under-23 champions of the Karson Bovell Northern Development Cup.

The outcome had to be decided by a penalty shoot-out, which was won 4-2 by Paradise against St Andrew Lions at the Boscobel Playing Field on Monday night after the scores were locked 1-1 at the end of regulation and extra time.

However, Paradise’s skilful national junior players Elijah Downey and Najee Holder made some outstanding goal-scoring attempts. (RG)
