Kenny and Perth Double up

The management dream team of Stephen Kenny and Vinny Perth were once again lifting silverware as Dundalk beat Cork City 1-0 AET in The Aviva to lift the FAI cup and complete a domestic double of League and FAI Cup.

Kenny who is from Milbroook Lawns has managed Dundalk since he parted company with Shamrock Rovers, and has in his tenure managed to steer them to a second place league  finish in 2013 before going one better in 2014 and again this season when they clinched the League Title following a 1-1 draw against Rovers in Tallaght.

Perth who is from Killinarden played under Kenny for Longford Town where they were beaten by Bohemians in the clubs first  FAI Cup Final, Perth  later went on to  lift the  Cup on two occasions whilst in the colours of Longford after Kenny had moved on to manage Bohemians.

It brings to six, the number of trophies the duo have lifted since they took over in Oriel Park with the League Cup (2014), the Presidents Cup (2015) Leinster Senior League (2015) being added to the two league titles and yesterdays FAI Cup, and you can guarantee that they are not finished yet.
