The Village had already hoisted the U19 League Cup earlier in the season and they made light work of Avondale with goals from Cian Rickard, Jason Hogan, Gordon O’Meara and Ronan Barrett ensuring a big win.

There were jubilant scenes among Ballincollig players and supporters when referee Mark O’Connell sounded the final whistle as echoes of the familiar celebratory refrain ‘Campeones’ travelled down the Lee all the way back to ‘the Village’.
