After yesterdays two SFAI Cup wins by our 14's and 16's if there was any extra pressure on our 12's and 13's today they certainly did'nt show it as they crowned a fantastic history making weekend for the Club by adding the Under 12 Sketchers Norton Cup and the Under 13 Sketchers Troy Cup to the trophy haul in fine style.
In the first game the breeze and big match nerves affected the players somewhat in the early stages but when Sam Curtis scored with a fine header from a corner it settled things down and SKB dominated the rest of the first half without adding to the scoreboard. Rovers with the aid of the breeze began to push forward a bit more and got the equaliser halfway through the half but within five minutes Matthew Anderson scored what turned out to be the winner and Derrin Adawale could have added to that but saw his fine strike hit the post with three minutes to go. So another 2-1 win was enough to get the SFAI Sketchers Norton Cup heading back to Whitehall along with the man of the match award which was won by Kevin Zeffi..
And so to the last of the quartet of finals - the Under 13 Sketchers Troy Cup final against St Josephs Boys - this provided the best all round performance of the weekend as SKB totally dominated the game from the start and would not have been flattered by a bigger winning margin than the 2-0 scorline that the game produced. Alex O'Brien opened the scoring after twelve minutes when he finished superbly after being played through by an excellent pass from Jamie Mullins and it stayed that way until the break having played with a strong breeze. The second half produced an even more dominant performance and they might have had a couple of extra goals on the board had Cian Kelly not been denied by the crossbar and the keeper before Evan Ferguson settled it with an excellent finish with twelve minutes remaining. Callun Warren was in superb form throughout the game and was fully deserving of his man of the match award.
The achievement of not alone getting to four out of the five SFAI National Cups on offer to the schoolboys of Ireland - but to actually win all four - should never be underestimated or undervalued and all the credit must go to all of the squads and their management for the hard graft and effort that they put in not just in the lead up to these finals but week after week right throughout the year as they seek to improve themselves as players and to maintain SKB as the benchmark for all others to follow in schoolboy soccer in this country.
The Club is proud of you all - well done.
