Cork claim Under-15 Gaynor Cup

Cork have claimed the top honour at the 2019 Under-15 Fota Island Resort FAI Gaynor Tournament, which came to a close on Sunday afternoon at the University of Limerick.
30th Jun 2019

The Gaynor Cup final was a close affair finishing 0-0 after normal time, but Cork were the victors over South Tipperary winning 4-3 on penalty-kicks.

South Tipperary goalkeeper Caoilin Casey was busy in the second-half and her player of the match performance kept the side in the game on a few occasions.

But Cork held their nerve to claim the much-coveted Gaynor Cup after a great weekend of footballing action.

It was a busy day at the tournament with Carlow picking up the Shield earlier in the afternoon after their final game ended 2-0 against Sligo/Leitrim.

Kilkenny also came out the better of a penalty shoot-out after their Plate final against MGL South ended 1-1.

And in the Bowl, Wexford were the champions beating NECSL 1-0 in their final, while Midlands claimed the Trophy by topping the league table in the mini-tournament.

Placing matches also took place throughout the day to decide how the teams would be ranked  - MGL North took third spot overall in the competition, while Galway came in fourth.
