Cork’s under 20 footballers book Munster Final spot

Cork’s footballers booked their place in the Eirgrid Under 20 Munster Football Championship final last night.

The Rebels defeated Limerick 2-14 to 6 points in Pairc ui Chaoimh, Hugh O’Connor and Niall Kelly with the goals for the Rebels.

Cork will now face Kerry in the final, after the kingdom saw off Clare after extra time, 1-20 to 4-9

Speaking to RedFM sport after last night’s game, Cork boss Bobbie O’Dwyer says he was happy with their win, but says they have plenty to work on ahead of the final.

“Any time you win a game you’re going to be pleased with it. There’s always going to be work-ons, we scored 2-14, I haven’t seen what we missed.

“We have that to work on, and it’s good to have something to work on.

“Defensively I thought we were very sound, they put us under a little bit of pressure with their deep runners early on. They were moving fellas around, and once we got a handle on that we were able to deal with it.

“We are very happy with the impact of the bench coming on , which you’re always looking for. It’s great that with fellas coming back from injury over the last few weeks that we were able to add that bit to our game.

“We’re very happy with the spread of scorers, we just need to be a bit more clinical up top, and we’ll work on that this week.”
