North End in­cen­tive

Enniscorthy Guardian - - SPORT -

NORTH END will have a nice in­cen­tive when they travel to north Dublin on Jan­uary 27 to take on Ayr­field United in the third round of the Leinster Se­nior Cup. The Airtricity League clubs en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion at the fol­low­ing phase, and the vic­tors from this clash have been handed an en­tic­ing home draw against First Di­vi­sion Long­ford Town who have in­vested heav­ily in new play­ers un­der the man­age­ment of ex-Spurs player Neale Fenn.

Among his re­cent re­cruits are Aaron Dobbs who signed from Sham­rock Rovers af­ter spend­ing the pre­vi­ous one and a half sea­sons on loan with Wex­ford F.C., so the En­nis­cor­thy striker could be com­ing up against some fa­mil­iar North End faces if the Sky Blues can get a favourable re­sult in Dublin.

Wex­ford F.C. will also be trav­el­ling to the cap­i­tal for round four, in a re­peat of last year’s quar­ter-fi­nal which they lost 5-0 to Premier Di­vi­sion out­fit St. Pa­trick’s Ath­letic in Rich­mond Park.

The Fer­rycar­rig Park crew will meet the same op­po­nents in their first pre-sea­son friendly in Car­low I.T. on Satur­day at 2 p.m., while they will visit the R.S.C. to face Water­ford F.C. seven days later.
