It was a super Sunday on Shannonside for Letterkenny Rovers U15s to savour as they had a resounding and comprehensive 3-1 win over Newcastlewest Town in the last 32 of the SFAI National Cup.
Rovers went into the unknown in this clash but settled the quicker and deservedly took the lead when Adam Yissau fired home to break the deadlock on 10 minutes
Rovers were rocked when the home side restored parity but Rovers were not to be denied when a cracking 20 yard freekick from Joel Gorman in the stroke of half-time restored the advantage at a crucial stage.
James Bonner’s men then upped the ante and ensured the win when a fine strike from Nathan Plumb made it a mountain to climb for the hosts.
Rovers have a home date in the last 16.
