Dublin North win again

Fingal Independent - - SPORT -


A GOAL in each half from De­clan Brady and Paddy Ga­han helped Dublin North make it back to back wins in Di­vi­sion 1.

By man­ager Gerry Wheeler’s own ad­mis­sion this was a game that would prob­a­bly have been lost last sea­son when he was in charge of Fin­gal, but thanks to the re­cent amal­ga­ma­tion with Swords and St Bren­dan’s Phoenix Park the newly formed club can now cope with in­juries. It was Dublin North who seized the ini­tia­tive early on, with Shane Dempsey hit­ting the post in the open­ing minute be­fore De­clan Brady hit a shot just wide.

Brady atoned for that miss ten min­utes later as he tapped home a Shane Dempsey cross to give his side the lead. We­ston dom­i­nated the re­main­der of the half and con­tin­ued to pile on the pres­sure in the sec­ond half but, Dublin North sealed vic­tory with ten min­utes to go as an­other Shane Dempsey cross was tapped home at the back post, this time by Paddy Ga­han. We­ston scored a con­so­la­tion goal from a short cor­ner rou­tine in the fi­nal se­conds.

NORTH DUBLIN: Luke Car­roll, Conor Con­nolly, Ben Chilling­worth, Toby Chilling­worth, Ea­mon Bane, Jim Dunne, Liam Met­calfe, Andy Quinn, Shane Dempsey, Paddy Ga­han, De­clan Brady, Subs: Stephen Kier­nan, Michael Ga­han, Colm Ka­vanagh, Alex Mc­k­eever, Ro­nan Gan­non.
