Ark­low Town win ti­tle

Bray People - - SPORT -

ARK­LOW TOWN lifted what they hope is the first of many tro­phies on Satur­day as they over­came a stub­born Glen­cor­mac United side to lift the John Tobin Youth League.

With nine wins from nine go­ing into Satur­day's clash at the Bridge­wa­ter Cen­tre Park, the Black and Whites knew three points would se­cure them the ti­tle.

But United threat­ened to spoil the party early on when Alan Pyke gave the Kil­macanogue side the lead af­ter five minute.

The home side - rest­ing sev­eral play­ers with an eye on tonight's FAI Youth In­ter­league clash - ral­lied though and went in level at the break. A 50th minute penalty then saw Town go ahead for the first time in the match and a third strike in the 85th minute en­sured that both the three points and the ti­tle would be­long to the Ark­low side.

Dara Ver­ney, Niall Mur­phy and Jonathan De­lahunt scored the goals for Ark­low Town.

That ti­tle was, in­cred­i­bly, the tenth con­sec­u­tive league crown that this Ark­low side have picked up in a row and in those years, Byrne's side did not lose a SIN­GLE game.

Ark­low Town, win­ners of John Tobin Youth League.
