Big weekend of finals in Soccer
First up on Saturday, you have the FA Cup Final with Manchester United and City going head to head in Wembley for the very first time
City has no injury scares while Manchester United Anthony Martial has been ruled out with a hamstring injury. Antony is a doubt after being taken off on a stretcher in their Premier League win against Chelsea.
Luke Shaw was also taken off with an injury during the Chelsea clash, however, the defender was fit enough to make the bench for United’s 2-1 win against Fulham.
That game kicks off at three o’clock tomorrow, the one thing I miss about the weekends, getting to be out and about during big games.
That’s why I took Sunday off as Castlewarren Celtic meet Tullaroan in Derdimus at 11 o’clock that morning.
