Cahir Park hit five to advance

FAI Youth Cup 1st Round

FAI Youth Cup 1st Round


Cahir Park produced a five-star performance as they progressed to the second round of the FAI Youth Cup easily overcoming North Tipperary & District League outfit BT Harps at the Ardfinnan Road, Cahir last Saturday.

A very one-sided cup contest saw Cahir Park open the scoring on 16 minutes through Liam Casey and it was 2-0 on 25 minutes through Darren McGrath. With the visitors struggling to stop the flow Cahir made it 3-0 with McGrath adding his second of the afternoon. Cahir Park had a 4-0 lead by the halfway stage with David Finnane scoring.

Cahir Park continued to boss the game after the changeover and should have added further goals. With BT Harps from Templemore failing to make inroads against a well-organised Cahir Park defence, the home side made it 5-0 four minutes from the end when Liam Casey added his second of the afternoon.
