June 2018 Sports Star of the Month - Ben Quinn

CHERRY Orchard’s Ben Quinn played a starring role for the Dublin and District Schoolboy League as they captured the New Balance Kennedy Cup for the 32nd time at the University of Limerick.

The Clondalkin lad fired home a hat-trick for the champions in the final against KDUL, helping them battle back from a goal down against their Kildare opponents to win 4-2.

In all Quinn amassed five goals in the tournament, also scoring in their semi-final win over Donegal in which his clubmate Thomas Lonergan also hit the target.

Quinn has played for the Orchard since the age of four and has developed into one of the most highly rated left wingers in Irish schoolboy soccer.

The first player ever to score a hat-trick in the Kennedy Cup decider, he has been on a very prolific run in recent weeks, chalking up seven goals and as many assists in his last nine matches.

Poised to take his place in the Republic of Ireland Under 15 squad, he is also likely to be soon playing in the National Under 15 League.

His Orchard team has won all of their opening six Premier Division ties this season.
