FAI Junior Cup
St Michael’s 0-0 Usher Celtic AET
(Usher Celtic Win 3-0 On Penalties)
St Michael’s were dealt their second huge blow of the week today as they were knocked out of the FAI Junior Cup on penalties against Dublin side Usher Celtic, in the same week that they lost the Munster Champions Cup final to Abbeyfeale.
The game finished goalless as indeed did extra time and shockingly enough Saints couldn’t manage a goal in the resulting shootout either as Celtic ran out 3-0 winners.
A huge shock for the TSDL side as they were one of the favourites to win the competition and leaves Tipperary’s only participation in the Cup to the town of Thurles as Peake Villa and Thurles Town face tough Dublin opposition in their next rounds against Cherry Orchard and Crumlin Utd respectively.
Celtic will now face Sheriff YC in the next round
