SKIBBEREEN edged Castlelack Celtic to lift the U12 Schoolboys Cup.
Skibb’s path to the final included wins over Drinagh Rangers, Castlelack United and Sullane. Celtic knocked out Dunmanway Town, Clonakilty Celtic and Inter Clonakilty to set up last Saturday’s showdown.
A scoreless opening half preceded an equally tight second period in which a solitary goal decided the outcome. Darragh Crowley wrote his name into the Skibbereen AFC history books with the winning goal in a 1-0 triumph.
Dylan O’Donovan, Liam Allan, Matthew Ashe, Daire Long and Connall Whooley also impressed for the winners. Eoin Murphy, Will Hickey, Donal McSweeney and Gearoid O’Keefe were the pick of a gallant Castlelack team.
