MARTIN MCMENAMIN hailed his young Cappry Rovers charges as their Under-12 Champions League final win secured a SIXTH piece of silverware this season.
“Fintown put it up to us,” McDermott, join manager with James Long, admitted afterwards.
“We always knew it was going to be tight with them. They’re a good footballing side and are well marshalled at the back. We knew chances would be at a premium. They were very hard to break down.”
The goal came 12 minutes into the second half and arrived via a piece of skill by Luke McGlynn that could have graced any stage as his ‘Rabona’ cross provided the assist for McMenamin’s goal.[adrotate group=”88″]
McMenamin, the manager hailed the excellence: “Boys would be watching that on tv. It was out of this world. It was going to take something like this – and Luke is always good for that.”
Next month, Cappry will host Nenagh from Tipperary in the SFAI Under-13 National Cup.
