U19s reach Enda McGuill Cup Final!

Last night saw our under 19s reach the Enda McGuill Cup final after a brilliant 3-0 victory over Sligo Rovers in the Showgrounds.SSE-Airtricity-League

Sligo Rovers came into the game in brilliant form, sitting top of the Northern Division having lost only one game all season and conceded only 15 goals in 14 games. 

Maciej's side however were out to prove a point however, as top of the Southern Division faced top of the Northern Division, and started the game extremely brightly and took the lead through Ben Hanrahan after just twelve minutes. The game then settled down and the first half proved an even affair.

However, Maciej's half time team talk seemed to prove wonders as once again, UCD came flying out of the blocks in the second half and Neil Farrugia was this time on hand to secure a vital second goal.

Mid way through the second half, Sean McDonald secured our passage into the final, finding the corner with the well taken finish to put the tie beyond doubt.

It may be an exciting few months ahead for our Under 19s with the Enda McGuill Cup Final set to take place to take place the week ending the 10th of September. With four league games left they look set to secure their League Quarter Final place as they currently sit 11 points clear of fifth place Limerick FC, with the top four progressing to the semi finals. Whilst there also lies the outside possibility of a potental UEFA Youth League spot should results go our way in the Champions League playoff rounds later in August!

The other Enda McGuill Cup semi final will see Cobh Ramblers face Dundalk FC
