FAI Youth Inter League Cup Preview
TSDL Youths v Waterford Youths
Peter O’Sullivan, the new manager of the TSDL Youths representative side, will take his team into action for the first time in the FAI Youth Inter-League Cup Group 2 game against Waterford Youths under the lights of Cooke Park, Tipp town this evening (Wednesday) at 7.30.
With away games against West Waterford/East Cork on 27th November and holders Kilkenny on 18th December it is important the Tipp team beats Waterford and secures maximum points from this game to keep their hopes alive of lifting this elusive trophy that the TSDL has failed to lift in their 34-year history. The TSDL actually contested just one final back in 2002 when they were beaten by the Sligo/Leitrim League.
Hopefully Peter O’Sullivan will get the full co-operation of the clubs and that the players he has selected will be available for this game against a Waterford side that will be coming to Tipperary town seeking revenge for last season’s defeat on their own patch.
Munster Youth Cup 2nd Round
Borris march on
TWO MILE BORRIS 3 ARRA ROVERS 1
Two Mile Borris qualified for the Third Round of the Munster Youth Cup by defeating North Tipperary representatives Arra Rovers at Newhill Park, Littleton last Saturday.
Borris got the breakthrough after 15 minutes when John O’Connor’s direct free-kick from inside the centre circle flew into the top right hand corner of the net. Borris doubled their lead after 25 minutes when Paul Webster finished off a move that was set up by Daniel Rafter.
They put this tie to bed 10 minutes from the end when Ashley Laslett was quickest to react to a shot the Arra Rovers ‘keeper could only parry to score from close range. Arra Rovers got a goal with two minutes remaining from Kieran Quilligan but it was just a consolation.

CULLEN-LATTIN 1 BASHA/DONOHILL 3
Bansha/Donohill produced a second half recovery against Cullen-Lattin to move into second place in Youth League Division 2 at Aisling Park, Cullen last Saturday.
Cullen-Lattin, still searching for that elusive opening point of the campaign, bossed the opening half of this West Tipp derby with Russell Bowes scoring after 24 minutes to give them a slender interval lead.
However Bansha/Donohill got the upper hand in the second half and drew level through Ger Ryan after 55 minutes. The combo’ then turned this game on its head when Dinny Crosse scored after 75 minutes. Then to rub salt into the wounds of Cullen-Lattin the hosts saw an attempted clearance end up in their own goal after 85 minutes to secure the three points for Bansha/Donohill.
