Skins coach Stevie Welsh could not hide his delight as his side secured the Junior Cup at Kingspan Stadium on Tuesday night against City of Armagh 2nd XV.

A superb comeback saw Skins respond from 17-6 down with two tries in the final quarter to run out 18-17 winners and it sees the club now hold the Junior and Towns' Cups, a feat that not too many have achieved in the past.

"I think 2017 was the last time a team held both of them but before that it was a long time ago. This is a massive achievement for a small club like us. We have no budget but everyone wants to go out and play for the badge and play for each other. It means the world to all of us," said Welsh.

The Skins coach saw his side make a bright start to the contest as John Maguire kicked a couple of penalties but by the break they trailed 10-6.

"We came here and we started well but we then a bad patch and let them back into the game.

"We had a lot of possession but there was a knock on and a few offsides when we didn't need to which was maybe just nerves. In fairness, Armagh are also a quality team and their back line could really go," he said.

And the second half got off to far from the ideal start as Armagh grabbed a second try to move 11 points clear.

"We spoke at half time about scoring next and for them to score straight away was a blow for us but that nearly played into our hands as Armagh maybe thought that they had nearly the game won but they have obviously never played our boys before because they never lie down and won't accept defeat," he added.

Indeed, Welsh was full or praise for the character and desire shown by his side.

"It wasn't the best performance as such but we showed loads of guts. We have a fantastic team and although we didn't play really well we never lay down and we came back to win the game."

Skins dominated territory and possession in the second half and they went on to score two wonderful tries with James Ferguson at the centre of both of them, racing on to a Nick Finlay pass to score the first before teeing up the second for Angus Keys.

"Nick is a quality ball player and James Ferguson is just the heart and soul of this team. He is my man of the match, he scores that try and then for the winner he had three defenders and he took on two of them and drew another in to set up Angus who had a tight finish and did very well.

When James had the ball the boys know that the game was still alive and they weren't going to lose."

There is still plenty to play for this season for Skins with the defence of their Towns' Cup title beginning in a couple of weeks while they are back in league action on Saturday away to Grosvenor.

"It is back to league on Saturday but we'll enjoy this and then we'll worry about that on Thursday and Friday," smiled Welsh.
