The two day tournament which began in 2012 is used as a preparatory competition for sides entering the Foyle Cup. South Donegal (Finn Harps) retained the title after topping the group on goal difference after a tense final group game against Champions League winners Swilly Rovers.The competition started on Friday evening with South Donegal facing Sion Swifts. A mix of impressive attacking and confident finishing helped South Donegal towards a comfortable 6-0 victory. This was followed by Swilly Rovers playing East Donegal and the Ramelton side overcame their counterparts in a tight encounter.Day two of the competition opened up with South Donegal taking on East Donegal and although a well organised East Donegal team were solid in defence, South Donegal managed to force through to a 3-1 victory, Joe Campbell with the pick of the goals. Sion Swifts faced Swilly Rovers in the competition’s fourth game. A good start from Sion Swifts was quickly calmed by Swilly Rovers possession and clinical passing as Sion were powerless to stop Swilly’s attacks leading to a 5-1 win.This set up a grandstand finish to the tournament as the top two sides were to meet each other in their final game. The two sides served up a thoroughly entertaining though equally nervy contest as both looked to play free flowing football, however, both goalkeepers were on hand with important saves as the game finished in a stalemate. That result saw South Donegal claim the tournament victory, with Swilly Rovers confirmed as runners-up. This left just the 3rd and 4th positions to be decided between East Donegal and Sion Swifts. Although East Donegal took the lead midway through the first half, a well executed free kick from Sion Swifts gave them an equaliser in the second half as the competition finished with a 1-1 draw.Swilly Rovers – Finn Harps Under 12 Cup 2014 – Runners UpEast Donegal Representative Squad – Finn Harps Under 12 Cup 2014 – 3rd PlaceSion Swifts – Finn Harps Under 12 Cup 2014 – 4th Place   SOUTH DONEGAL WIN FINN HARPS UNDER-12 CUP was last modified: June 22nd, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Finn Harps U-12 CupSouth Donegallast_img
