KINSEALY United’s Under 12 Sunday team is on a high after winning the Keeling's Cup Final with a 1-0 victory over neighbours Swords Manor.

Dillon Farrelly’s first half strike proved to be the decisive goal in the decider played under floodlights on the all-weather pitch in Balbriggan.  

It was a fantastic end to the year for the Kinsealy boys in a tournament organised for north Dublin teams to extend their season, and played over five consecutive Sundays. 

Malahide United, Balbriggan, Lusk United and Stamullen FC were the other teams who competed in the competition.

Kinsealy were in good form going into the final following victories over Lusk, Malahide and Balbriggan. 

In the final, they started well and were very steady at the back with solid performances from PJ Hickey, Cian Squires and Liam Aylward. 

A superb reflex save from Indrit Domi kept it scoreless and just before half time Player of the Tournament Farrelly found the net.   

Lorcan McGuinness and Cian Kelly worked hard in midfield to keep Swords Manor at bay, while the forwards also ran tirelessly, Lele Mazzola, Ryan Kelly, Aaron Hickey and Ryan Hills. 

Kinsealy United’s other squad members also played their part over the last five weeks, Josh Asamoha, Tadgh Donnelly, Callum Jones, Zach Deere and Jack Doyle giving strong performances throughout.
