That was probably the best display since I became manager,” said Slane’s boss David Johnstone.
“Hanover are a very good team and we knew that on the back of our recent league win they would be looking for revenge but today was even more comprehensive .
“Big credit to the players who worked really hard both nights this week at training and also a special mention to physio Lyndsay for her sterling work in getting the injured players on the pitch.
“A real team effort with Boyd and both Fairleys coming off the bench to contribute well. Harrison was again superb and Coulter was solid at the heart of the defence, Blevins looked sharp and Whitten a threat bombing forward.
“MoM today was Darrgh Peden for a massive performance. There has been a lot of attention given to Hanover striker Bradley and he is a very good player but I thought Darragh bossed him and his organising and keeping players concentrating was vital.”
