Under 19’s face Cabinteely test

Our under 19 side face Cabinteely tomorrow, Saturday at The Showgrounds in the Enda McGuill Under 19 Cup quarter final.

The game kicks off at 1pm and takes place on the main pitch at The Showgrounds.

We sat down with manager Brian Dorrian to discuss his side’s chance.

‘We were disappointed last weekend being beaten at home against Longford. The lads worked hard but the result didn’t go our way. They have to pick themselves up for tomorrow and see what we can do. Cabinteely will be good. They’re pushing for a top four spot in the league and we know we’ll have to be at our best to progress’.

In team news, The Bit O’ Red have made a couple of signings in the July window, with Darragh Forde and goalkeeper Cormac Henry making their debuts last weekend. Jerry Idahor picked up a head injury in the game and will be assessed before tomorrow’s game. Luke McNicholas played 90 minutes in the first team’s friendly with Cliftonville last night, which may mean he will be rested in the game.

‘The lads are looking forward to it. The fact it’s on the main pitch is another incentive for them to go out and perform. Hopefully, we see a decent turn out on the day and it’s a good occasion’.

We will be opening our BORST Clubhouse with tea, coffee and refreshments available on the day. Our club shop will also be open and we encourage all supporters to come out and support the lads.

We wish to thank our under 19 sponsor Aurivo Connacht Gold for their continued support. Visit their website here:
