Speaking after his sides three nil win over Swanland FC Cunningham told HU17.net;
“I am very proud of the lads, I could not have asked for anything more of them. It was hot out there but they stayed committed and got the win.”
“This is a great result, we were beaten last week but today the lads refocused and did what needed to be done to get the win with some great individual performances including Elliot King.”
Whitestar went into the match with a depleted squad with number of players missing for various reasons.

Spooner who is returning to the club for a second spell only completed move in the week, the left back was given a debut playing at right back.
“ It was good to play for Whitestar again and I enjoy playing for Brian. I thought I played okay, just got my head down a bit in the second half.”
“We can and should of played better but Swanland made it hard for us the way they closed us down.”
Commenting on Bailey’s performance the gaffer said;
“Bailey had a terrific debut, given the selection problems he was thrown straight into the side playing out of position but he coped with it no problem.”
Whitestar can now put their feet up for a couple of weeks ahead of their next game which is against Costello Wolves.
