A goal 20 minutes into the second half by Anthony Barry gave Buttevant a 1-0 win over spirited Ballincollig in the Cork area final of the FAI Junior Cup at Turner's Cross.

The goal followed a long clearance by BUttevant keeper Gerry Pat O'Leary. Barry ran onto it and forced past keeper McNulty from close range. The winners had the better chances: Pat Harrington hit the post (5) and Billy Sherlock came close on 45.

Ballincollig fought back well after the goal but again the better chances fell to the winners with Sherlock (67) and Denis O'Reilly (77) unlucky.

Ballincollig: F. McNulty, K. McNulty, K. Coomey, C. Wyse, A. McNulty, D. Hegarty, P. Coomey, J. O'Mahony, J. Kelleher, A. Brady and D. Horgan. Subs: P. Flanagan and B. Fitton.

Buttevant: P. O'Leary, P. Carroll, J. Ring, P. Fitzgerald, M. Hayes, D. Bowles, M. Ring, P. Harrington, B. Sherlock, A. Barry and D. O'Reilly. Sub: J. Linehan.

Buttevant, the 1-0 winners.
