Albert Couboye Cup
Corinthians took on Div 2 side Strand in the Albert Conboye Cup U12 in Inniscarra on Sunday and ran out convincing winners. Corinthians took control of the game with two early goals and led 3-1 at half time. Corinthians did not have it all their own way at any time throughout the game and had to defend resolutely throughout. Three more goals later in the second half did take some sting out of the game. It was a magnificent team performance from the entire squad. Goalscorers were Robert Walsh (3), Kevin Moran, Andrew O'Mahony and Vinnie O'Leary.
Strand Utd. 1 Corinthian Boys B 6
Wilton 1 Corinthian Boys 3
his proved to be a very difficult fixture for the Under13's away to Wilton in the 2nd round of the National Cup. The team did not play to their usual high standard and were fortunate to take the lead after 19 minutes following a good run and excellent finish by Fionn Molloy. The team then conceded a penalty on 28 minutes, which was converted by Wilton.
The match continued to be a scrappy affair with Corinthians slightly on top. They eventually made the breakthrough with 6 minutes left. They killed off the game with a goal by Leo Barron with 2 minutes to go.
They return to Wilton next week for a league match.

Corinthian Boys B 0 Innishvillsa 5
Corinthian Boys 6 Skibereen 0
On a wet Sunday afternoon, Corinthians boys' clash with West cork's Skibbereen in the National cup resulted in a comprehensive victory for the home side. From the off Corinthians looked a step ahead of their opposition, though it took them all of 20 mins to finally take the lead, which came from an early Robert Cregan cross finished well by Conor Fagan. This goal brought the best out of cors, as for the rest of the half they looked a formidable force, playing great one-touch attacking football that earned them another 3 goals, all three scored after some great team play from players including Daniel O' Donovan, Patrick Buckley & Colin O' Mahony. The second half told much the same story as corinthians continued their dominance with a double from Rory Doyle in the opening 20 mins. Cors then confirmed their place in the next round, grabbing another 3 goals in the space of the final 10 mins. This capped an excellent performance for Corinthians, which shows the focus & ambition this great team have on a national level.

Neil Welch Cup
Corinthian Boys A 7 Richmond 0
The boys are through the first round of the U15 Neil Welch cup with a convincing victory over an understrength Richmond side in Castletreasure. The boys made hard work of it in the first half and failed to press home their advantage but were completely dominant in second against a strong wind with Liam McCarthy a mere spectator in goal. Goals from David Harrington (2), Daniel Hurley (2), Joe Cremin, Patrick O’Callaghan and Cameron White ensured the boys go into the hat for second round. Best for the boys on the day were Karl Hyde and Cillian Desmond.
John Cooke Cup
Douglas Hall 1 Corinthian Boys A 0
A game we definitely should not have lost as we dominated throughout playing the entire match in the Hall half of the field. However we should have converted the dominance into more chances apart from the endless corner kicks and a goal line clearance by the last Douglas defender with the keeper beaten. Of course the Hall clinched it with a late goal 5 mins from the end giving Cors little chance of a come back. Excellent play be the Corinthians defence with Colm Power, Daniel Tyner and Killian Moriarty while David Geaney O Brien also played well in midfield.
Munster Youth Cup
Bandon 2 College Corinthians 7
