Flynn Targeting a First Cup for City since Shield Glory in 1988; HUNTING HISTORY CO-OPERATIVE INSURANCE FINAL NEWRY C V PORTADOWN, 2.30PM


Byline: BY DARREN FULLERTON

"There is a little piece of history up for grabs and that is a big, big incentive, not only for me, but for my players."

Flynn, who took over the Newry job in January 2007, is relishing his first final as a boss after enduring a torrid time before Christmas when the financial future of the club was on the line. …
