Evergreen is gearing up to host Bray Wanderers in an upcoming LFA Leinster Senior Cup match, reminiscent of last year’s encounter that saw New Oak facing a three-nil defeat. The spotlight is now on Evergreen, as fans wonder if this time around, the result will take a different turn.
Notably, star striker Mikey Drennan, with a history against Bray Wanderers from his League of Ireland days, played a key role in Shamrock Rovers’ 3-0 win over them in 2015.
Evergreen’s recent form includes a convincing 4-0 victory over Westport in the LFA Junior Cup which sets them up for a clash with Tipperary side St. Michaels and an undefeated run in the district league Premier Division, with five wins in five matches. This positive momentum has built confidence within the team as they prepare for the upcoming challenge.
Despite the anticipation surrounding the Evergreen-Bray Wanderers clash, the team faces a tight schedule, playing again in less than 48 hours in the Junior Pat Maher Shield Quarter-Final. With Deen Celtic and Freebooters already securing spots in the semi-finals, Evergreen will be looking to join them when they take on New Park on Sunday morning.
Meanwhile, New Oak is scheduled to face Freebooters in the LFA Junior Cup. This Kilkenny versus Carlow clash promises to be an intriguing battle with the kick-off on the Burrin Road set for 11 o’clock.
