Ballingarry AFC and Villa FC will contest the 2020 Munster Youths Cup Final following victories over Bridge United and College Corinthians respectively. The game will be played on Saturday, August 15th at Ozier Park in Waterford (3pm). The draw for the decided was made by the Munster Council on Tuesday.
Ballingarry will contest their first ever Munster Youths Cup Final following a 1-0 victory over Bridge United at the County Limerick venue last week. After just five minutes, left winger Mike Molloy lobbed the goalkeeper from long range to score the all important winner. A sturdy defensive performance ensured the victory.
Not only is it Ballingarry’s first time reaching this stage of the provincial competition but it is the first time that any Limerick Desmond League side has achieved the feat.
Captain Ciaran Tagney was delighted with the victory and praised manager Dean Clancy.
“It’s fantastic for the club and it shows the work we have put in. It is a great achievement. We can relate to Dean (Clancy). He is a young man and we would be friends with him too so we listen to him. “
Speaking on the opposition Villa FC, manager Dean Clancy admits he doesn’t know much as he was focusing on the semi-final hurdle first;
I don’t to be honest as we were focusing on Bridge and we were going to focus on Villa only if we got there. So, I will have to ring around to a few Waterford clubs and see what the story is and we will give it out best shot.
Unfortunately, once again the capacity will be limited to 200 including players, management and officials which is disappointing on such a big day for the County Limerick outfit.
