Park United have retained the North Devon Premier title after coming out on top in their final match of the season.

Park went into their match with Fremington knowing a win would secure them the title, while anything less would open the door for Shamwickshire Rovers to take the top spot in their final game of the season on May 25.

On the day Park came from behind to win 3-1 at Sandymere and take the title.

Matt Deakin had given Fremington the lead early on with a free kick from the edge of the penalty area.

Dave Brown levelled things up for the home side, and Steve Skinner gave them the lead going into half time with a low finish.

Ricky Marinaro converted a penalty with 20 minutes remaining to ensure Park took all three points.

Manager Adam Eley said: "It's been a difficult season but the lads have done well when needed against the tough teams in the league.

"We lost a few players at the beginning of the season, and I didn't think we would do quite as well, but the lads who have come in have done really well."

Park will be looking to make it a league and couple double this Saturday, when they meet North Molton in the Brayford Cup final.

Kick off at Barnstaple Town's Mill Road ground is at 7.30pm.
