St. Michael’s FC

Last weekend our Youth Team had no fixture due to the TSDL Youth Tipp team being in action. Our first team were at home in Cooke Park last Saturday night in a huge FAI round 3 clash against fellow premier league outfit Peake Villa.  Result: 3.1 to Saints. Goals from Ritchie Ryan, OG and Russell Quirke. We now await Round 4 FAI draw to take place. Many Thanks to the very large crowd who attended this vital game on such a wet and windy night. Our 2nd team were away to Clonmel Town B  in division 2 league fixture last Sunday. Result: 7.1 to Clonmel Town B. 

This week sees our first team at home in Cooke Park on Saturday November 9, to St. Nicholas FC in a Munster Junior cup round 2. Our second team are at home to Kilmanahan Utd at the Complex, on Sunday November 10, in Division 2 League.  Our Youth Team are away to St. Nicholas FC in Munster Youth Cup round 2 fixture, on Saturday, November 9, as Saints youths lost their home advantage because of a water logged pitch. All your support is much appreciated and please keep following all our Saints Teams.
