Goodwick complete league and cup double after five-star display in Senior Cup final

GOODWICK United completed a league and Cup double on Saturday, April 29, as they beat Monkton Swifts 5-1 to lift the Senior Cup.

They had been crowned league champions just two weeks previous, with a win over the Swifts, and their Senior Cup triumph has made it a memorable season for Goodwick.

There was a good crowd at the Ogi Bridge Meadow stadium on a sunny April afternoon.

The game was just nine minutes old when the first goal arrived. After an initial corner was cleared Johnny Horgan sent the ball back in and it was flicked on by Scott Delaney for Rhys Jones who fired back across goal to score.

Just six minutes later it was 2-0 as Luke Hayward’s cross into the box wasn’t dealt with and the ball fell to Jones to fired in via a deflection.

And in the 21st minute Goodwick had their third. Hayward again sent a cross into the box and Delaney was on hand to head the ball home.

Despite the scoreline the Swifts did not give up and four minutes later they pulled a goal back. Ben Steele worked well to get the ball into Declan Carroll who scored to give his side some hope.

A good save from Monkton keeper Taylor Gullam kept the score as it was.

However, he could do little to stop Goodwick’s fourth as Horgan’s cross fell to Jones who fired in an emphatic shot to complete his hat trick and make it 4-1 with five minutes still to go until the half time break.

That goal all but won the game for Goodwick as the Swifts were unable to find a way back into the game in the second half.

Jones added a fourth on the hour mark to end any faint hopes the Swifts had of making a comeback.

Second half sub Nathan Greene came close to adding to the scoring but he could not get on the end of a cross.

The Swifts were reduced to ten men late on as Ross Jones was sent off for bringing down Nathan Greene who was through on goal.

Goodwick were able to see the game out and the final whistle secured their first Senior Cup triumph since 2016.
