Tipperary represented in FAI Junior Cup Final

Tipperary represented in FAI Junior Cup Final

The brilliant St. Michael's AFC of Tipperary are one game away from tasting FAI Junior Cup success.

Clare's Newmarket Celtic present the opposition for the Tipperary kingpins on Saturday, April 29th, in the perennial showpiece.

The three-time winners take to Jackman Park in Limerick at 5 pm for the highly-anticipated meeting of two of the country's most exciting sides.



Speaking to the FAI ahead of the game, St. Michael's manager John Cremin has welcomed the opportunity: "It's fantastic. Obviously, it's a huge occasion and a huge week for the club, and the lads can't wait to get going.

"It's taken a lot of hard work and commitment from the boys. Last August seems a long time ago now, but when we got back, we spoke about the Junior Cup and we spoke about getting a run in the Junior Cup.

"Every year, you go into it, and you hope, but because it's such a huge competition - it's so hard to get to the final, that you just hope things go right, and thankfully they have."


With excitement building, the community are well and truly behind Cremin and his men ahead of the monumental tie.

"It's really kicked in over the last week or so," he added.

"There's bunting put up in the streets, and a of the shops in Tipp have messages of good luck for the players and the team.

"The last ten days has seen a massive amount of green and white all over Tipp town."

Their opponents have reached their first FAI Junior Cup final in their 55-year history and will be keen to upset the Premier favourites.

The final is set to be streamed on FAI TV.

Tickets for both matches are priced at €10 for adults and €5 for children, with entry available on the gate on the day of the game.
