Stars face Village
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.
