Duffy, who made his debut for the club 20 years ago, scored the winning kick.

"I didn't really think much about it," he told BBC Northern Ireland.

"I saw the keeper diving to his left out of the side of my eye, so I slotted it to his right. I was going to drive it as hard as I could but he moved early so I slotted it in.

"Shane McConville came over to us at the end as soon as the whistle was blown and asked five boys to put up their hands."

Pearse Óg's Conor Clark added: "It's massive, especially as soon as you get on in your age, I'm 36 now and people would be saying that it's time to hang up the boots but moments like this here, you just dream of them."

Here's the full shootout thanks to Armagh GAA. Pearse Óg are in green and Madden in red.
