Cobh Wanderers Football Club

Junior Result: St. Mary’s 3-4 Cobh Wanderers.


The juniors made much harder work of this win than should have been. Despite being three goals up after 65 minutes and coasting they allowed Mary’s back into the game with the concession of two late strikes and then had to endure a nervous finish. Mark Foley got the only goal of the first half with Darren Cronin grabbing the second on 49 minutes. Pierce Donnachie got a third in the 60th minute.

When Ian Murphy put Wanderers into a 4-1 lead on 65 minutes the game looked dead and buried but some sloppy play and good finishing allowed Mary’s nearly grab a share of the spoils at the end. Best for Wanderers on the day was Farrell O’ Connor who had a steady game at the centre of the defence while Ian Murphy worked tirelessly in the middle of the field. Well done to all involved.

Scorers: Mark Foley 9, Darren Cronin 49, Pierce Donnachie 60 & Ian Murphy 65. Mary’s: 58, 78 & 84
