7.30p.m.

All roads lead along the N11 for the first time this season on Friday as Cabinteely travel for the ‘East Coast Derby’ against Bray Wanderers at the Carlisle Grounds.

MANAGEMENT TEAM VIEW

Approaching the end of the first series of fixtures, Cabinteely go to Wicklow looking for a third win in a row.

But First team coach Collie O’Neill is expecting a tough battle beside the seaside.

“We’re looking forward to it. It was good to get back to winning ways at home last week against Cobh. There were more points on the board. We’ll be looking to keep that momentum going.” He added “It is a big game. But it is a really competitive league. There is not much between all of the sides. It’s really tight.”

The game will be only the sixth time that the teams have met in league action.

Back in February 2020, goals by Kieran Marty Waters, Vilius Labutis and Keith Dalton (2) had the home side 4-0 up at half time. Wanderers hit back through Gary Shaw and Jack Watson in the second period.

Then in September last year, Wanderers won 3-0 at the Carlisle Grounds with goals by Derek Daly, Gary Shaw, and Darragh Lynch.

The previous three league fixtures were all back in the 2019 season.

Back in February 2019 on the opening day of the season, Bray won 3-0 at Stradbrook with second half goals by Dylan McGlade (2) and Dean O’Halloran.

Then in April 2019 at the Carlisle Grounds, it ended with honours even at 1-1. Jake Ellis put the Wicklow side ahead. But Vilius Labutis equalised in the second period.

Back at Stradbrook in July 2019, Yuta Sasaki scored a late winner in a 2-1 success for Cabo. Paul Fox had given the home team the lead which was cancelled out by Dylan McGlade.

The teams also met in the Leinster Senior Cup last March 2019. Cabinteely won 2-1 at the Carlisle Grounds. Luke Clucas and Sean Fitzpatrick netted for Cabo with Luke Jovic replying for the Seagulls.
