Soccer in South Tipperary gets under way this week-end with the season as usual kicking off with the John Delaney trophy.
This competition consists of eight teams, the top four from the TSDL premier division and the top four from the North Tipperary League premier division.
Now in its fourth season, St.Michaels have won it on the previous three years.
Nenagh have provided the opposition in the previous finals but this year that cannot happen because they have been drawn against each other at the quarter-final stages.
The games are used as good pre-season preparation for the long season ahead. It is difficult to predict the outcome of any of this week-end games. Little is known of the personnel signed by any club, statistics which will emerge over the coming weeks.
