Hornets are the best team in Bermuda – Ward

Dennis Zuill, the Dandy Town caretaker coach, took his team's fifth FA Cup triumph and third in four seasons all in his stride, insisting that the best team won.

Town, the defending champions, grabbed the lead midway through the first half and were never in serious jeopardy of relinquishing their title.

“I always have high expectations for my team and overall I was pleased today with their performance,” said Zuill, who took charge of the team in the absence of Jomar Wilkinson, the Town head coach.

“Flanagan's made it rough and physical and sometimes we have a tendency to lose our heads and composure, so I was just pleased that we stuck together.

“We knew we were the team with better quality but sometimes cup games can go either way.

“I think it was important that we scored first because once we did the guys settled down.

“I think the scoreline was a good reflection of the match. Flanagan's never threw in the towel and they fought and were deserving of something. But at the end of the day, the better team won and this victory was a phenomenal way to cap off the season.

“For the last two seasons we have only been out of one final and won seven, so this is fantastic.”

Mick Ward, the Onions coach, admitted that the better team won but felt that the scoreline flattered their opponents.

“I thought the match was a bit closer but we were definitely beaten by the better team,” he said. “I think Dandy Town are the best team in Bermuda.

“We kept up with them for about an hour but that third goal really killed us and having a man sent off didn't help. It was a booking and I have no complaints.

“It's not been the best of seasons, obviously we've been relegated. But we did get to the cup final and matched them for maybe an hour, so there's plenty of positives to take from the match.

“We are a good side and on our day we know we can play good football, but today wasn't our day.”
