This was one of the best attended U21 Finals in years and the huge attendance were treated to a game of real quality that excelled in all that is good in our games.
Both teams played an attractive brand of fast-flowing football which seen the game ebb and flow and remain in the balance throughout. To be fair there was some untidy play and mistakes made at times – stemming no doubt from the tension of the occasion for the players, but all in all, it will be remembered for all the tenacious defending, sweeping moves from defence to attack, exquisite scores and the wonderful atmosphere in the stands.
Normal time couldn’t separate the two sides and even though they were both out on their feet at the full time whistle they still managed to produce another 20 minutes of quality football.
Congratulations to Glencar Manorhamilton on their win but most especially to both teams and their mentors for producing one of the best games of football in the 2012 Leitrim Championship Season.
Final score Glencar Manorhamilton 1-10, St Manchans 1-8.
