Dublin club Sheriff YC claimed the FAI Juinior Cup at the Aviva Stadium, with Mark Higgins' header proving the decisive goal. 

It was a fine performance from the deserving winners, with the goal coming in the latter end of the first half when Higgins rose highest to power home Sean Murphy's inch perfect cross.

Pike tried hard to get themselves level but they failed to find a clinical touch in the final third to keep their hopes alive. 

The result means Sheriff lift the trophy for the third time in their history following their first win in 2012, and they made up for last year's defeat to Liffey Wanderers.
