Under-17s Coach George Danaher commented on the importance of Cup games for his side.
“Cup games are always really beneficial for our programme.
“They give the players a great experience of having to win and there being pressure on that.
“As staff we put real demand on them to perform and display what it takes to win – that’s with the build-up, the game, and then the review.
“We’ll create the pressure and the environments that make the players know it’s a big game and they must win.”
