After a 4-0 win over Longford two weeks ago, Harps Under-17 manager Declan Boyle outlined the importance of a mean rearguard.
And they did the business last night in Sligo to topple the Bit O’Red.
Marc Walsh, who is moving to Swansea City in the summer, fired Harps in front in the first half.[adrotate group=”91″]
Harps made safe the win as Niall McGinley and James Carolan – the hat-trick hero against Longford – bagged goals in the second half.
Harps Under-17s are home to Cavan-Monaghan next weekend.
