June 2018 Team of the Month - The DDSL Team

THERE were no less than seven local club players on the Dublin and District Schoolboy League squad that brought home the New Balance Kennedy Cup for the 32nd time.

Four Cherry Orchard players namely Ben Quinn, Glory Nzingo, Thomas Lonergan and Craig King, together with Crumlin United trio Harvey Nugent, Kyle Murphy and Matthew Brennan, all played their part in a tremendous campaign for the side.

A hat-trick by Quinn and another goal by Evan Ferguson went a long way to seeing the Dublin outfit battle back from a goal down to beat KDUL 4-2 in the decider at the University of Limerick.

It capped another great title quest by the DDSL who topped their group with 13 goals and none conceded as they beat Carlow, South Tipperary and Athlone.

This set them up for a meeting with Cork in the last eight of the competition in which another of the Orchard contingent, Lonergan, hit the target along with Ferguson as their side edged a tight 2-1 victory.

The semi-final against Donegal proved that bit more comfortable as the DDSL won out 3-0, Quinn and Lonergan again on the scoresheet along with Jamie Mullins as they helped propel their side through to another decider.
