Mullingar Athletic AFC reach LFA U19 Cup

Mullingar Athletic AFC 3
Bunclody AFC 1

Mullingar Athletic AFC U19`s secured their place in the final of the LFA U19 Cup with a 3-1 win in Wexford this afternoon.

The home side started the game strongest with several attempts on the Athletic goal one of which was deemed a penalty when the ball hit a Mullingar players hand in the box.

Bunclody went 1-0 despite Athletics Keeper going the right way and was very unlucky not to save.

Mullingar Athletic AFC however quickly settled after this and began to play in their usual style.

⚽️ Rian O`Farrell netted Athletics first from a corner which was initially defended by the home team but a scramble in the box saw marksman O`Farrell place the ball in the net.

⚽️ Athletics 2nd was also converted by Rian O`Farrell. An initial chance was defended by Bunclody but the clearance fell nicely and Rian powered the ball with his left foot into the net.

⚽️ The 3rd goal of the game came from Ryan Bitu who ran through several opposition players to score.

This was a superb all round team performance from the lads today and a well deserved win.

Congratulations to coaches Brendan, Stephen, Jay and the full squad of players who not only got the result today but were also great ambassadors for their club.

A very special thanks to Bunclody AFC for a great game and to their coaches and club officials for the hospitality shown to our club and players both during the week and on the match day

Finally, as always thank you to all the supporters who travelled to Wexford to support the team.

Well done lads and best of luck in the final
