Stars face Vil­lage

Bray People - - SPORT -

AN UGLY ri­valry will sprout a new chap­ter when Rath­new AFC B and Celtic Stars clash for the right to lift the Di­vi­sion 2 Cup.

The pair have en­joyed some feisty bat­tles over the past cou­ple of sea­sons and now they’ll lock horns once more in a match that should be com­pelling view­ing.

Rath­new’s last step on their route to the fi­nal was a trip to Ry­der’s Field where they safely saw off Glen­cor­mac United 0-3. A first half Jody Mer­ri­gan strike was added to af­ter the in­ter­val by Josh Gra­ham and Keith Quinn as the Vil­lagers helped their club to yet an­other fi­nal.

Pro­mo­tion chas­ing Celtic Stars hosted cur­rent Di­vi­sion 2 Cup hold­ers New­town United B and in a tight af­fair, Lukasz Niewiadom­ski’s lone goal set­tled the is­sue.
