Town Send Celtic By The Wayside As Last 16 Awaits


FAI New Balance Junior Cup 6th Round


Clonmel Town

Evan McGuire 19’

Craig Guiry 79’

Keith Cashman 90’


Wayside Celtic

John O’Neill 60’


Clonmel Town have reached the last 16 of the FAI Junior Cup after a fantastic 3-1 win against Dublin outfit Wayside Celtic.

Town had the perfect start and found themselves a goal to the good just before the twenty-minute mark as Evan McGuire found the net. That would be as good as for the prolific striker as moments later he was forced off with a shoulder injury.

Celtic came out strong for the second half and equalised on the hour mark thanks to a superbly taken free kick from John O’Neill.

With the game on a knife edge it would be the hosts that prevailed as a Craig Guiry strike eleven minutes from time was added to by an injury time goal from substitute Keith Cashman to send Jonathan O’Donoghue’s side into the last sixteen.

Elsewhere on Saturday VEC FC managed a 4-0 win at home to Glin Rovers as they also book a place in the last sixteen.
