The waiting game is almost over and all roads lead to Sligo this Sunday as Evergreen look to book themselves a place in the FAI Junior Cup Final and an outing at the famed Aviva Stadium.
Standing in their way is a Boyle Celtic side who defeated a fancied Carrick United outfit last time albeit from the penalty spot, but it was a notable victory nonetheless.
The bookmakers have Evergreen as slight favourites on Sunday but Player/Manager Packie Holden thinks both semi finals this weekend will be evenly matched.
Speaking to KCLR ahead of Sunday’s clash against Boyle Celtic, Packie says that Sheriff will be in no way daunted by having to travel to Kerry to play Killarney Celtic.
“Going to Killarney is going to be a very difficult game for Sheriff but if anybody can pull it off it would be Sheriff down there, they are an outstanding team and they know how to win games of this magnitude.
“They won’t be daunted at all by going down there and playing in the Lions den so I think in both semi-finals, there is not going to be a kick of the ball between the two teams. We are both very evenly matched.”
Evergreen defeated Kilmallock in the Quarter Final and the win over Willow Park was no mean feat either.
You would imagine that this one will come down to very small margins, a bit of luck or maybe a stroke of genius which both sides are capable of.
