Leixlip win 4-2 on penos
Leixlip United proved their is still life in some old dogs.
The hangovers might be worse at this age, but that didn’t stop the club’s over 35s celebrating cup success over the weekend.
Leixlip beat fellow Kildare outfit Naas to lift the Ace Sports Awards Master’s Cup on Saturday.
United held their nerve come peno shoot out time to bank some sliverware for the club.
Naas went into the clash as favourites, but Leixlip more than held their own throughout. A frantic clash saw chances for both sides to secure victory, but neither could find the net during play.
As a result the final was decided by a shoot out and successful 12 yard attempts from Martin O’Neill, Tom St Ledger and Dave Allen allowed Jimmy Nugent to secure hero status by converting the winning spot kick.
