Harding disappointment for UCD

UCD failed to make an impression at the 2009 Harding Cup, losing to NUIG in the First Round before being eliminated in the Plate play-offs. Ger Chivers scored the only goal of the game for NUIG in the competition opener. NUIG ultimately went on to reach the semis, where they lost to UL after extra time. UCD went into a Plate play-off against Mary Immaculate College and DCU. A 1-0 win against MI - a John Dineen penalty - and a 1-1 draw against DCU meant a two-goal win would be enough for DCU to progress at UCD's expense. They duly won 3-0, ending UCD's hopes for another year. UCD squad - 1: Cian Byrne, 2: Joe Holt, 3: Daniel Lenane, 4: John Dineen, 5: Garreth Mathews, 6: Colm Bailey, 7: Graham Risk, 8: Brian McFlynn, 9: Evan Connelly, 10: Peter McMahon, 11: Gavin Falconer, 12: Jeff O’Flynn, 13: Aidan Lawlor, 14: Paul Bourke, 15: David Fitzgerald, 16: Cormac Wilson, 17: Ruairi Roderston, 18: James Brennan
