Today saw SKB create a little bit of history when for the first time we have succeeded in having four of our teams reach finals of the five SFAI Cups on offer when our Under 16 DDSL Premier team came from a goal down in the first ten minutes to score an emphatic 5-1 win over Waterford side Villa FC.
Despite Ryan Cassidy scoring a hat-trick the man of the match award went to Dawson Devoy who scored two superb goals while Kathelego Mashigo must also have been in the running for that accolade as he turned in a powerful performance in midfield as the team re-discovered the form that has been missing in recent weeks.
SFAI Cup finals day had been shaping up nicely for SKB following yesterdays semi-final wins for our DDSL Under 13 and 14 Premier teams and the 12's who had qualified for their final last week but todays result for the 16's marks a fantastic achievement for the Club and proves that we still producing players and teams of the highest quality and setting the benchmark that others look to follow in schoolboy football in this country despite the setbacks and rebuttals that we have endured from the powers that be.
Its hard to reach one National final let alone four but the harder job awaits us now in the finals but we will be prepared as the players and staff are aware that the job is only half completed at the moment,
To add to the achievement of the 12's 13's 14's and 16's our Under 17's despite the disappointment of losing in the FAI Under 17 Cup last week are still in the semi-final of the Leinster Youth Cup where play Sacred Heart next Sunday.
Evergreen were no match for our 13's who were in rampant form from the time that Evan Ferguson put them ahead after just three minutes further goals followed from Alex O'Brien and Jamie Mullins before Evan Ferguson hit his second before half time. Adam Coyle came on to score two in the second half with Cian Kelly also scoring twice in an emphatic win.
The Under 14 game against Middleton was a much tighter affair with clear cut chances few and far between until Aaron Doran broke the deadlock before the break and he got a second in the second half who he forced the ball home following a defensive mixup in the Middleton defence. Conan Noonan put the issue beyond doubt with a fine finish fifteen minutes from time after being played through by a fine ball from captain Len O'Sullivan.
