Big soc­cer cup week­end

Enniscorthy Guardian - - SPORT -

IT’S A big week­end on the FAI Cup front, with two Wex­ford clubs in ac­tion in Fer­rycar­rig Park on Fri­day and Sat­ur­day re­spec­tively. Wex­ford F.C. will get the ball rolling when they host Pre­mier Divi­sion Bo­hemi­ans on Fri­day at 8 p.m., while North End United will be aim­ing to cause a big up­set when they take on Danny Fur­long and his Gal­way United team-mates at the same venue at 6 p.m. on Sat­ur­day.

One of the in­ter­est­ing sub-plots will be the at­ten­dance fig­ures at both games. Wex­ford F.C. have a very small sup­port, although the num­bers on Fri­day should be boosted by a healthy Bohs con­tin­gent.

How­ever, it’s con­fi­dently pre­dicted that there will be more Wex­ford folk at the North End game than the Fri­day fix­ture, given that the non-league side is com­posed en­tirely of lo­cals.
