After a solid start to the 2021 SSE Airtricity League First Division season, Cabinteely welcome Galway United to Stradbrook on Friday.

MANAGEMENT TEAM VIEW

Having defeated Wexford FC and Cork City in the first two games, Cabinteely Assistant Manager/First team coach Eddie Gormley is expecting a stern challenge from Galway.
“We’re delighted with the start we’ve had. They were two good wins. It was a difficult game against Cork last week. But the players dug-in and we deservedly got the three points.”
He continued “We’re under no illusion – Galway are a particularly good side. It is going to be a difficult match. All we can do is work hard and see what that brings for us.”
