One final down, one to go!

Wednesday, 4th March, 2020 4:49pm

Celebrations are continuing this week in Douglas Community School after their win over Rochestown College on Monday but the two schools are due to meet again in another match next week.

Douglas won 2-1 on home ground over their near neighbours in the U19 FAI Schools Dr Tony O’Neill Senior Munster Cup Final. However, the two schools will pay each other in the U17 Munster final on Monday 9 March too.

There are a number of players who play for both squads so two Munster titles are on the cards for some if Douglas can overcome their rivals next Monday again.

The U17 have had tough fixtures with matches against Cork and Waterford schools. A number of players on the squad won a Munster title in first year and have also picked up county medals at both U15 and U17 level. The trainers of the U17 squad believe that these players will be able to draw on that experience.

The winning U19 side faced games against schools on Leeside and Tipperary to get to the final. The players are drawn from clubs like Ringmahon Rangers, Cobh Ramblers, Cork City, Douglas Hall, Avondale, Carrigaline and College Corinthians.

The school trainers said that the students take immense pride in wearing the school jerseys and glean inspiration from famous past pupils such as Adam Idah, Adam O'Reilly, Colin Doyle and Eoghan O’Connell.

The school’s soccer hall of fame features two current Irish underage internationals in Oran Crowe at U17 and Cathal Heffernan at U15.
