The penultimate round in the FAI Junior Cup involving teams from the TSDL, North Tipperary and District League and the West Waterford/East Cork League takes place this coming Sunday.
1974 winners St. Michael’s will make the short journey to face Second Division pacesetters Cullen-Lattin at Aisling Park, Cullen which should be a great day for the underdogs.
1994 winners Clonmel Town must travel to Templemore were they will face NTDL top side Blackcastle United. Clonmel Celtic are another side travelling north to Borrisokane FC where they will be looking for a similar performance shown in the previous round away to Cloughjordan. The only all-TSDL Premier League clash sees Peake Villa taking on Wilderness Rovers in Thurles. There is also an all-TSDL First Division clash with Glengoole United entertaining Bansha Celtic at the Community Field, Glengoole.
Premier League Cashel Town will be expected to secure a victory against North Tipp side Clodiagh Rangers at Palmers Hill, Cashel. First Division Ballingarry Albion could take a step closer to reaching the last 64 for a third successive season with victory over North Tipp Division 1 pacesetters Bridge United at the Sportsfield, Commons.
St. Nicholas FC, who made the last 64 for the first time last season, will be breaking new ground when they visit East Waterford/ East Cork king-pins Valley Rangers for the first time.
With places in the last 132 in the country up for grabs, the TSDL management wishes all the league representatives the best of luck.
Those teams playing outside the jurisdiction of the TSDL must send in a report with the scorers from both teams.
