Saints Win SSE Airtricity National U15 Cup
St Patrick's Athletic are SSE Airtricity National Under 15 Cup Champions as the 10-men ran out 4-0 winners against Cork City in the final at Richmond Park.
With previous encounters against each other this season being tight affairs, drawing on both occasions, a cagey affair might have been on the cards with such high stakes. This was anything but.
In the opening few minutes, both teams had chances to snatch the lead in rip-roaring affair of the highest quality. Cork's number nine, Chris O'Connor, showed lightening pace to break the offside trap only to shoot at the near post.
Moments later, Cork nearly shot themselves in the foot after a terrible mix up at the back allowed Ben McCormack and Ross Fay to have efforts scrambled away at the last second.
