U19s into Enda McGuill Cup Quarter Final

Our Under 19s continued their good run of form on Wednesday evening as they overcame Derry City 3-2 in a tight last 16 match.

SSE-Airtricity-League

Derry City took an early lead from the penalty spot, however Maciej's side soon responded with a penalty of their own from Conor Crowley. Yoyo Mahdy then continued his good form in front of goal as he handed us the lead before half time after good work from Neil Farrugia breaking through. It didn't take Derry long to hit back after the break when they drew level on 49 minutes, however Neil Farrugia grabbed the all important goal midway through the second half to fire us into the Enda McGuill Cup quarter final To continue out good recent times in the competition.

The tie was in fact a repeat of the 2015 Final which saw us claim the trophy by the same scoreline as lifted the cup after a 3-2 thriller in the UCD Bowl, whilst in 2016 we were eliminated at the semi final stage against St Patrick's Athletic. Details of the quarter final will be confirmed in due course. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter accounts for full updates!
