CORDUFF reached new heights before the summer season has even started after an extended run in the SFAI All-Ireland competitions and the LFA over 35 provisional competition, racking up four Leinster titles in 10 days.
The Dublin 15 club won at Under-12, 14 and 16 level in the SFAI Leinster regional competitions before adding an Over-35 LFA title for good measure.
Indeed, the Over-35s completed their victory in some style as they beat a Finglas United side littered with ex-junior international players, many FAI junior cup winners and ex-League of Ireland players and an English first division regular.
It was a great final played between two teams of old school, committed players, something of a dying breed in the modern senior game. A 3-1 win over Finglas united with a man of the match performance from Tommy Kelly was enough to take home the big one in over 35 football form Oscar Traynor road.
The schoolboy section, meanwhile, has yet to start its summer soccer season but thanks to a great extended run in the SFAI competitions, competitive football was on-going while most others had been on their break from the short season of 2016.
The haul started at St Kevin’s Boys when the club’s Under-16s won 2-0 in a well-deserved victory. Next up was the Under-12s last Sunday morning who beat Ardee Celtic 4-1 with an exhibition of football.
Then, to seal the four Leinster trophies haul, the Under-14s who beat Ardee Celtic on penalties in a tight affair.
It might have been even better, too, as the club’s Under-13 Premiers and Under-15 Premiers both exited the competition at the semi final stage, both by way of a penalty shoot outs
It puts the club in great shape for the new summer season and they are welcoming new players at Under-8, 9, 11, 12 and 15 level amongst their 28 teams.
