The Drogs boss says that his side will not become complacent after comfortably defeating Shamrock Rovers to lift the EA Sports Cup at Tallaght Stadium
The Drogs triumphed over Shamrock Rovers in the final of the competition, winning the tie 3-1 in the Hoops home ground, Tallaght Stadium, thus granting Cooke his first ever trophy as a manager.
“We said (back in March) that we’d be looking for a top five finish and maybe a good cup run. We felt we were well capable of that, that the mix was right in the team," Cooke told the Irish Times.
“There’s a bit of experience and good young lads there and towards the end of the season we’re still digging in, getting good results when the odds are against us, playing away from home,” he added.
“That’s one of the top teams in the country we’ve beaten tonight. 3-1. Comfortable. In their patch. For a small, part-time squad that’s not bad because it’s tough on the bodies but there’s the hunger and aggression there.
“So we’ll enjoy (the victory) and we’ll get back into training on Tuesday and we’ll push on again. We won’t be letting up,” concluded the Drogheda boss.
