Johnstown FC had a great day today for FAI Cup finals day at the Aviva Stadium.
Johnstown FC was well represented on the day with a great contingent traveling up by bus to the games. We were also represented in an official capacity with players from the girl’s u13 team selected as ball girls for the Women’s final and players from the boy’s u13s and u11s team as ball boys for the Men’s final.
Up first was the women’s final contested by Wexford Youths vs Peamount Utd. Wexford Youths were 1 – 0 victors on the day completing the double.

We had a helping hand from the wider Johnstown community providing some sustenance for the group, thanks to Smiths Supervalu and andysfunfood.com for providing snacks for the group and Dublin bus for the transport.
Days out like this are of huge benefit to the football club and help grow the sense of pride and community within the club. A huge thanks must go out to all parents and coaches that helped out on the day and made it so enjoyable. In particular, a huge debt of gratitude must be paid to John O’Brien who organised the day out from its inception.
Everyone had a very enjoyable day out and here’s to more in the future.
