Enniskillen Town 4 Enniskillen Athletic 1.

Enniskillen Town claimed the Coffey Cup with a 4-1 win over Enniskillen Athletic at the Castle Park Centre last Friday night.

Rory Judge’s Town side did the damage in a ten minute spell in the first half when they struck three times to take a comfortable advantage in at the break.

It was a harsh lesson for Division Three outfit Athletic who fell four behind midway through the second half before they grabbed a late consolation strike.

For Judge, the Coffey Cup has provided good preparation for when the more important business of the league gets underway next week.

“We had three games and three wins in the competition so it is good preparation for us for the league and we were deserving winners on the night,” he said.

Athletic joint manager Anthony Fitzpatrick felt that the scoreline was harsh on his side but was pleased overall with the display of his players.

“There was a ten minute spell in the first half when they caught us out and we maybe showed a bit of naivety but we would be pleased with the performance in general and playing against a Division One side is great for us in terms of preparation for the league,” he commented.

Town took control of the contest in the first half and captain Conor Tummon gave them the lead from the penalty spot after Johnny Hoy was upended.

Ciaran Brough then doubled the advantage and Town were firmly in the driving seat when they added a third before half time when new signing Stephen Quinn bundled home from a corner.

Wallace lashed home a fourth for Town midway through the second half and Athletic bagged a late consolation goal when Ryan Willicombe finished to leave it 4-1.
