Galway and MGL cup success on Gaynor finals day

Metropolitan Girls League and Galway and District League both ended their 2017 Fota Island Resort Gaynor Tournament’s with cup success on finals day.
25th Jun 2017

In the final game of the tournament, Metropolitan Girls League claimed a 1-0 win over Galway and District League thanks to a first-half penalty from Alannah McEvoy. McEvoy, who starred for the Republic of Ireland WU17 side at the European Championships, ensured her side lifted the trophy, presented to them by Republic of Ireland WNT Head Coach Colin Bell.

In the U14 Final, Galway and District League triumphed in an all-Connacht affair against Sligo Leitrim and District League. In an enthralling final between two unbeaten sides, Orlaith Conlon scored the winning goal after great work by Anna Fahey. Galway were presented with the trophy by FAI CEO John Delaney as Galway reached the final in all three age-groups (U12, U14, U16).

Limerick Desmond walked away with third place in the U16 Cup after a narrow 1-0 win over Cork. Metropolitan Girls League claimed third place in the U14 Cup after a narrow 1-0 win over Inishowen League which means Metropolitan finished in the top three in all three age-groups, winning two.

The two finals wrapped up the four-day tournament which has seen over 45 teams compete and over 1,000 girls participate in the Fota Island Resort Gaynor Tournament at the University of Limerick.
