REPORT: Leeside dominate to win FAI Umbro Youth Cup

Leeside AFC strolled to their first FAI Umbro Youth Cup success after a 6-0 win over Aisling Annacotty at Jackman Park.
30th Apr 2017

An inspired performance from Nathan Manson-Browne saw the Cork outfit lead five-nil at half time.

Nathan Manson-Browne was fouled inside the box in the tenth minute by Jakub Jastrzebski and the spot kick was duly converted by Eoin Horgan.

Manson-Browne doubled the lead himself eight minutes later when his glancing header beat Magner in the Annacotty goal before the tricky left winger won his second penalty of the game. Horgan netted in the same corner to put the game to bed.

The 17-year-old terrorised Kennedy Tabot Naip in the first half, and added another goal to his tally seven minutes before the half. 

He completed his hat-trick on the stroke of half-time when he executed a brilliant lob to emphasise both his and Leeside’s dominance.

Eoin Murphy added a sixth on the hour mark - sliding his shot cleverly past the out-rushing Regan-Magner to add further gloss to the scoreline on a great day for the Cork club.
