Youths Complete Domestic Double

  • PDF

The Youths are the Tipperary Cup Champions thanks to a 5-0 drubbing of St Michaels in Cahir Park, this completed the domestic double and capped off a fine season for this promising side. It took a while for Town to adjust to the trying conditions in Cahir Park but when they did they were awesome. Kevin Faheys goal after 22 minutes typified Town's confidence when he chipped the keeper from 20 yards, an amazing opportunists goal. Greg Henry scored his 15th of the season when he raced onto a flick from Colman Kennedy and he shot past a helpless keeper with sublime ease. Thomas Fitzgerald made it 3-0 after 35 minutes when he got on the end of a Jonathan Yates perfect delivery, Fitzgerald added a 4th just before half-time to inevitably end the game as a contest. Town came out of the 2nd half with the same attitude in search for more goals but were met with a more stiff St Michaels side. Fitzgerald eventually completed his hatrick when he raced clear from the offside trap to claim the match ball and the deserved man of the match award. This was a stunning performance from a fantastic side which deserve every success they have had. Irish Schoolboys Evan Comeford was assured in goal all day while the backline of Tom Kirwan, Cathal McGeever, Johnny Yates and Robbie Flynn were sound through the ninty minutes. On the wings the speed merchants Michael Conolly and Kevin Kirwan tortured the full backs all afternoon. The midfield trio of Kennedy, Henry and Fahey dominated from start to finish and should of added to their tally, and last but not least lone striker Thomas Fitzgerald grabbed his hatrick with brilliance, thats 12 in the last 9 games, an amazing personal achievement. Substitutes which made an appearance were Mark Wallace, Sam Ryan and Conor Arrigan and when introduced were able replacements. Well done to management and the team on a League and Cup season.
