No show by Avon­more

Bray People - - SPORT -

THERE WAS a no-show from Avon­more FC on Satur­day as they were sched­uled to take on Rath­new AFC in the Un­der 17 Cup semi-fi­nal.

It is be­lieved the home side had re­quested to switch the game to ei­ther Easter Mon­day or Wed­nes­day, April 23, due to a num­ber of squad mem­bers be­ing in­volved in a county Mi­nor G.A.A. match, but the Wick­low League turned down both dates and in­structed Avon­more to field a team and ful­fil the fix­ture.

Rath­new and the match of­fi­cials ar­rived at Bal­ly­gan­non Park but there was no sign of Avon­more FC at the venue.

The vis­i­tors re­turned home and cel­e­brated mak­ing it to the fi­nal against Wick­low Rovers, pen­cilled in to take place on Satur­day in Avoca in what should be a cracker of a game.

It is ex­pected that Avon­more FC will make an ap­peal to the WDFL con­cern­ing this mat­ter.
