If the task awaiting St Peter’s at Old Bedians on Sunday is a sizeable one, then the British champions might just have the answer in giant full forward Liam Coyne.
The 6ft 6½ins, 18 stone, Manchester born and bred attacker has been in prolific form this year in front of goal having joined St Peter’s from junior club St Ann’s, and his personal battle with Castleknock’s ex-Dublin Minor full back Graham Hannigan will be crucial to the outcome.
In the county final win over John Mitchels, Coyne helped himself to 2-1, followed by 1-2 to knock out reigning All Britain champions Cuchulainns of Newcastle. London’s Cuchulainns restricted him to just three points in their semi-final, but he was back in form come the All Britain final as St Peter’s swept aside Cardiff’s St Colmcilles, with Coyne contributing 1-2.
