Congratulations to the players and management of the under 14 South Dublin Football League team, who rounded off their season in the best possible way when they beat Collinstown FC 2-0 in the League Cup final in blustery conditions on the astro pitch at Ballyowen Park this morning. Imrich Toth made a top class save to prevent Collinstown taking the lead following a free kick, before the Orchard opened the scoring on 25 minutes when Craig Bourke scored from close range after good play by Conor Byrne. And the lead was extended two minutes before the break, when a fine run and pull back by Conor Byrne allowed Jason Henderson to finish calmly into the bottom corner of the net.
The Orchard coped well with the attacking threat of Collinstown in the second half and, when the referee blew the final whistle after five minutes of added time, all that remained was for the captain Shaun Magee to accept the cup on behalf of his team.
Well done to all who were involved.
