West Cork man captains Tykes to Johnstone's Paint Trophy final glory
BANDON’S Conor Hourihane has captained Barnsley to Wembley glory this afternoon.
The 25-year-old West Cork man led the Tykes to a famous 3-2 against Oxford United in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final, after coming from behind in an epic second half.
Almost 60,000 fans packed into Wembley and they saw Barnsley score three second-half goals – an own goal, and strikes from Adam Hamill and Ashley Roberts – to capture the cup.
Hourihane – made captain of Barnsley in mid-December – becomes the first West Cork man to captain a team to cup glory at Wembley.
