East Antrim Host Burney Cup Final

Burney Cup Final
Cookstown 1 - 0 R.B.A.I.

Two talented schoolboy teams met at Blaris this afternoon to contest the Burney Cup Final - the pinnacle of a schoolboy's hockey career. The splitting sunshine wasn't the only brilliance on display as the Cookstown attackers showed some exceptional form.

After some early possession FROM R.B.A.I., the initiative was handed to Cookstown and the inevitable goal appeared shortly before half-time - Andrew Ferguson scoring the goal. Ferguson was in inspirational form and his trickiness was too hot for the R.B.A.I. defenders to handle. Indeed, the East Antrim donated Man of the Match trophy was presented to Andrew at the end of the game by Club President, Derek Reade and Club Chairman, Jim Strange.

The second half was a slightly duller affair. Cookstown always looked in control and were only troubled once when Gareth Lennox, goalkeeper, produced an outstanding reaction save.

The Burney Cup was presented to Cookstown captain, Ewan Butler, by the Ulster Branch President, Mr. Cunningham, and a representative FROM the sponsors, Ulster Bank - Mr. Reid.

There is no doubt that Cookstown thoroughly deserved their victory... and it certainly looked like the party was only just beginning after the presentation of the trophies...
