The former, UCD, Bray, and Shamrock Rovers player scored a goal, and set up the other, as the south Dublin club picked up their first win since May. Waters opened up the scoring within fifteen seconds, with his ninth of the season, as he finished smartly from the edge of the box. He describes the goal to SSE Airtricity League reporter Peter Branigan. "I think the sun was in his eyes! I just hit it, no pressure, and it wen't straight into the top corner! "But we made hard work of it from there on in. "Cobh are a stubborn, dogged side. And you can see why they get results." Since their last league win, against Shelbourne, Cabinteely have picked up just one point from a possible twelve, ending their outside chance of going for promotion. "It's been a rough couple of weeks for us. We were poor against Wexford, we improved against Longford last week. "It was a relief tonight to finally pick up three points. Waters is often deployed as a loan striker by his manager and, although he's quick to point out that it's a team effort, he acknowledges that it can be a lonely life up front on his own. "It's hard work, I'm absolutely shattered after that ninety minutes tonight." "Goals are a nice reward, but they mean nothing if we don't win a game. "To me, it's all about the team. "If we can get some form going, and get winning consistently, it'll build nicely towards next season." If Cabo are to secure more victories in 2017, Waters, who set up Paul Fox for his first senior goal for the club on Friday night, will undoubtedly play a part.
