This season’s John Delaney Cup will be played without last seasons winners Bansha Celtic after they failed to make the top four in the TSDL Premier Division last season.

We have a Thurles Derby to kick us off as Peake Villa host Borroway Rovers. The visitors have enjoyed a good start to the NT&DL Premier Division sitting joint top with Nenagh Celtic, but they know this will be a tough job with the hosts favourites to go through.

Killavilla Utd host Cahir Park in Roscrea and both sides should have very young squads with last season’s NT&DL Champions Villa struggling this term to retain their title and this will give Cahir all the confidence they need going into this fixture.

Clonmel Town host Thurles Town in the Complex and the home side should find safe passage through to the semi-finals here as Thurles have struggled to gain any sort of consistency in the NT&DL Premier Division this far.

Nenagh Celtic host FAI Junior Cup finalists St Michaels in the TEC and this will most likely prove to be a step too far for Henry Newman’s sides despite their huge improvement on last season’s campaign.

It should be noted that the TSDL sides are all in Pre-Season and this competition normally kick starts both leagues in the past.

All games are set for 7pm tomorrow evening.
