A few pics from an incident packed encounter, close shaves, and near misses in front of a large crowd. Our season may be over but these players have given us great memories – thanks Daire & the management team and of course the squad itself.

⚽️😍 Friday night’s game cant come quick enough! 😍⚽️

Cabinteely come to the City Calling Stadium for the second leg of the first round of the playoffs on Friday.

Arrive early this Friday night and be prepared to sample the Samba sound.
