Some more Cabinteely history will be made on Friday as the club make their first ever trip to Turner’s Cross to take on Cork City.

MANAGEMENT TEAM VIEW

Cabinteely Director of Football Pat Devlin is expecting a tough tie against the Leesiders.
“We’ve had a little break, but we’ve trained all along. Cork are one of the best sides I’ve seen this year.”
With crowds (home fans) allowed back, he is expecting a different atmosphere at the venue.
“Crowds coming back makes a big difference. But we will be up for it. It is fantastic to have the fans back.”

Defender Andy O’Brien (knee) and goalkeeper Adam Hayden (hand) are out injured.

REFEREE/OFFICIALS
