It's always food to report a win even if it's the Cup. Last Friday night the long journey to the RSC,Waterford was made worthwhile with a good 0-2 win. Two goals in rapid succession by Lee Duffy, (a really stunning goal) and then Philip Gannon from the edge of the box. It was a wet night down in the south east but at least we're in the hat for the next round, so fingers crossed for a decent draw. One of the talking points was the poor local crowd. It's amazing that for a place the size of Waterford that they're not rallying behind the cause, especially for a one off cup tie. At the end of the game, some of their hardcore, truly dedicated and hard working supporters were shaking their heads, not so much at the outcome of the game but for their actual future. It's a long, long way from the buzz that's building for the international team and the Euros.
CORK ON SUNDAY
On Sunday 29th May, we host Cork City at the City Calling Stadium with a kick off time of 3pm. This note got his days wrong last time and sincere apologies for that. Following an in depth investigation, 2 weeks wages have been docked to ensure that there's no repeat goof. Our first trip to Leeside was one we'd prefer to forget so this is a chance to set the record straight and give them a bit of a fright. Hopefully the unusual time of three o clock on a Sunday afternoon will help bring out a crowd. We could do with as many Sunday supporters as possible.
Last week end UCD had an exciting win against Bray. Pity though it wasn't a league game, which would have taken us off the bottom rung. Hopefully, we'll be climbing up a rung or two very soon.
Best wishes to Paddy Donnelly who reached the half century last weekend. By all accounts he had a great weekend of it especially with all his teams doing well too.
CAR BOOT SALE
Don't forget our next Car Boot Sale is fast approaching. Monday June 6th is the date and then there won't be one till the August bank holiday week end. We have been promised some extra volunteer helpers for this event but we could always do with more. Give Liam a shout, he certainly could do with some more back up, especially on the early shift.
The coverage of the domestic league by the nationals always leaves something to be desired. However one man who always gives every club a mention is RTE's John Creedon. De Town seems to hold a special place in the heart of the affable Cork City fan and he often gives us a plug on his nightly music slot. So, if you're travelling north for the match Creedo, you're very welcome to the City Calling Stadium.
FANTASY FOOTBALL RESULTS
Well done to Hugh Connolly, Oscar Deacy and Darren Quinn who finished 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively in the Supporters' Club competition. Thanks to all who entered this popular competition and fundraiser. We'll be in touch regarding prizes during the week.
