7th June – Carrigtwohill

The club held an end of year annual AGM to mark the end of season for all leagues including our own. It was a memorable occasion as the majority of the Under-12’s had a chance to meet for the second time the Heroes of this year’s Corinthians Cup. A lot of our kids thronged Turners Cross as Carrigtwohill United ran outright winners against Cathedral Celtic where Phil Wade scored what looked like a goal of his lifetime.

Friday night’s Awards NIght was a special occasion for the Under-12’s as they were presented with their medals for winning promotion to first division. The success of Carrigtwohill was heavily built on a strong backline where Colm led the team from the back. He was an icon for the club as he represented us as the only Carrigtwohill player to have made the Cork City squad at Under-12. It is no wonder we conceded the least number of goals in the league.

However, our player of the year award deservedly went to a player whose side almost won every small sided game during training and that you never had to caution at training or matches. A player that literally carried the team throughout the season, scored double the goals of his closest challenger and most notably got a hattrick against League winners Leeside who only defeat was against Carrigtwohill United in their own backyard. (Carrigtwohill United emerged 3-2 victorious with a Hattrick from Rolie to mark the biggest win of our season). Player of the Year is Rolie Durango

The team is still in the Conboye Cup semi-final and hopefully will have a chance to win it.

Congratulations to Colm and Rolie for wonderful individual achievements and congratulations to the whole squad for gaining promotion at first attempt

Corinthians Cup Final

On 6th June, Carrigtwohill United played out an Epic Cup tie against Cathedral Celtic in Turners Cross. The city side are playing a division higher that Carrigtwohill, but this did not seem to have any bearing on the match, as the sizeable crowd was treated to a highly entertaining cup tie.

Those present on the night, we treated to a ‘goal of a lifetime’ scored by Phil Wade. After controlling a defensive clearance skilfully, he volleyed the ball from all of 45 yards which flew into the top corner of the net beating the despairing dive of the Cathedral goalkeeper. (Keep an eye on YouTube to see this!!)

Cathedral replied with a goal of their own, but Carrigtwohill hit the front again after some trickery, Man of the Match Maciej Breizak crossed for Badge Williams to finish from close range.

The second half was highly entertaining, with both sides going close. The final 10 minutes were played at a frantic pace, with Cathedral throwing evening at Carrigtwohill who were unable to break out from their own half.

However, they held on for a magical win and scenes of wild celebration from their supporters.

It was a just reward for a team which have had a wonderful season, finishing a very close second in the league which they could easily have won.

The club would like to extend its congratulations to Brendan Cronin, Andrew Long and the entire squad on their success.
