Enda McGuill U19 Cup: Cobh Ramblers 0-1 Cork City

Cork City’s Under 19’s progressed to the next round of the Enda McGuill Cup with a hard fought win over Cobh Ramblers in St. Coleman’s Park on Sunday afternoon. City will face UCD in Bishopstown in the next round on February 5th after they defeated Limerick in their corresponding fixture.

Danny Morrissey’s strike 13 minutes from time was enough to see City through in a game where David Browne in the Cork goal had the busier afternoon. Following a first half stalemate where clear cut chances were at a premium; Cobh managed to apply a good deal of pressure on the visitors defence with Andrew Joyce coming to the rescue with a goal line clearance from a corner being the closest the hosts came to finding the City net.

The hosts physical presence meant it was a difficult afternoon’s work for Cork’s centre back pairing of Stephen Carroll and Eoghan Murphy, but Danny Morrissey’s first time effort from Alan Anderson’s low left wing cross late in the game meant it would be City’s name in the second round draw.

City return to League action next week when they travel to Belfield to take on UCD as they look to maintain their six point advantage at the summit.

Cork City: David Browne, Andrew Joyce, Alan Anderson, Steven Carroll, Eoghan Murphy, Stephen Kenny, Danny Morrissey, Robert Lehane (Liam O’Sullivan), Darren Murphy, Ross McCarthy, Conor Cannon (Roy Collins).

Subs not used: Chris Dineen, David Drinan, Garry Buckley, John Kavanagh, Jason Forde.

Referee: Keith Callanan.
