Letterkenny Rovers manager Eamon McConigley challenged his team to become winners – and they met his demand last night by capturing the Knockalla Caravans Senior Cup.
Brian McVeigh, Paul McVeigh and Steve Okakpo-Emeka netted the goals in the second half as Rovers defeated Glengad United 3-0 at Maginn Park in the final.
