Clare clubs learn opponents in FAI Junior Cup draw


Two Clare clubs have discovered their opponents in Round Four of the FAI Junior Cup, writes Ivan Smyth.

Avenue United and Ennis Town will meet Wexford and Limerick opposition respectively.

Avenue United face a tricky trip to Wexford as they take on Courtown Hibs in the fourth round. The Clare side had an impressive 1-0 win against Desmond League side Abbeyfeale United FC as Dylan Casey headed home the only goal of the game to send Avenue United through.

The Clare side have impressed since the season started as they are unbeaten in the Premier Division with their only blemish a defeat to rivals Newmarket Celtic in the Premier League Cup final.

Abbeyfeale had defeated Newmarket Celtic earlier in the competition.

Avenue have struck 17 goals in their three games in the competition to date and will be hoping to add to that tally against Courtown Hibs.

Meanwhile, Ennis Town have been drawn away to Limerick side Star Rovers in their fourth round tussle.

The Ennis side have impressed so far in this competition having plundered 10 goals in the opening three rounds of action.

They managed to find the net three times in their one goal win against Desmond League side Rathkeale AFC. The win was far from comfortable with the Clare outfit 3-0 up at half time before conceding twice in the second half.

Goals from Davy Keenan, Dean Hegarty and Yasher Aliu were enough to see Ennis Town through as this game against Star Rovers will mean they have faced Limerick opposition in every round of the cup so far.

Ties are due to be played on or before Sunday November 28.
