Speaking on the award win, a team representative said: “From the committee of the league, we cannot thank Peter and Ryan for their commitment and dedication to the Gaynor teams over the years, we hope they will continue for many a year. For the past few years we have been lucky to have young coaches as additions to the management of Peter and Ryan and this year we gained a new young mentor, Peter Murphy as a goalkeeper coach, and we thank him so much for his commitment to this squad.

“To have young coaches give up so much of their free time so willingly is a huge addition for our league and is greatly appreciated. On behalf of the league we wish to the Cork City and County Youth Awards for this wonderful award and giving recognition to the players and coaches.”
