LEINSTER’S grip on the FAIS Under-18 Boys Interprovincial title was slipping through their fingers until the striker delivered when it mattered most.

The Ireland Under-17 international went into the tournament as the main man for the holders and he lived up to that billing with a title-clinching brace in the final stages of Sunday’s 5-0 win over Connacht.

The title looked set for Munster heading into the final five minutes at the AUL Complex, but Aherne fired home the crucial fourth goal, before adding a fifth for good measure soon after.
