Giles looks on as Hibs girls triumph

Campile United 1, Courtown Hibs 2: Played in Ferrycarrig Park as part of the John Giles Festival of Football, these two young sides produced an entertaining and exciting Under-10 Cup final which displayed all the best in under-age soccer in Wexford at present.

The opening ten minutes were evenly contested and chances were rare until after twelve minutes when Hibs' prolific goalscorer Ella Maree scored a long-range effort to put her side ahead.

The lead was shortlived however as Campile were level within minutes as some skilful play put Amy Ennis through to slot past the 'keeper.

The second-half was evenly contested and looked to be heading for extra-time until Holly Tobin struck five minutes from time to clinch the cup for Courtown. Johnny Giles himself was on hand to present the cup to the winning side as well as the player of the match award to Leonie Ward.
