FAI Intermediate Cup 3rd Round
Last week the Saints defeated Maynooth University Town 3 - 1 away in the Herald Metropolitan cup. David Somers was amongst the goals again scoring two after Glen Crowe opened the scoring. Somers has now taken his tally up to twelve goals this season. The win delighted Saints manager Brian McCarthy " It was a tough cup tie, the attitude of the squad is terrific and we are delighted with the win, fair play to our supporters who travelled on a really awful night".
The Saints are very close to full strength with Karl Somers the only doubt for the game. Saints manager, Brian McCarthy expects a big test for the Saints on Sunday " It's going to be a very tough game on Sunday, Cork opposition are always formidable, we had a great win last week and we are playing with plenty of confidence". Sunday's game kicks off at 2.oo pm and the Saints manager is looking forward to a big crowd in Porterstown road " We have fantastic supporters and Ballincollig AFC will bring plenty of support, the players are looking forward to the game and hopefully we get the result we need".
The winners of the tie will have a home tie against Tramore Athletic FC or Cockhill Celtic FC although the Saints manager is not looking too far ahead " It's a massive game for both clubs and a home tie in the next round awaits the winners but you can never look too far ahead in football".
It promises to be a great cup tie on Sunday, if the game ends in a draw after 90 minutes, it's a replay in Ballincollig. No extra time in the 3rd round.
Kick Off on Sunday is 2.00 pm
