Greenwood FC will host two National Cup last 32 matches this weekend. So be prepared to come out in numbers and support our U15 and U16 teams please. The lads and managers have come through difficult group matches to make it this far and remarkably both teams have been here before.
U15 kick off at 2.30 Saturday
U16 kick off at 2.30 Sunday
Both games are scheduled at Coffey’s field (with Stiofan Naofa booked as reserve)
The U15 team are hosting Kildare’s Newbridge Town FC. A huge club with 2 and 3 teams in every underage level. They are currently second in their league. The Greenwood lads are not intimidated easily and having reached the quarter finals of this Cup last year (losing out to the eventual winners), they are fired up and looking forward to the challenge.
The U16 team play host to Naas FC, another huge club with Premier teams at all underage levels. They are currently 3 points off the top of the table with a game in hand. This is the third time in 4 years that this Greenwood team have been in the last 32 of the National Cup having progressed to the last 16 and last 8 previously. They have faced all the big contenders in Cork and won and relish the thought of another big name win.
Whatever the results over the weekend these 2 teams have given us a lot to be very proud of and because Greenwood is celebrating it 40th birthday this year it will add a little spice to festivities! So please bring family, friends and distant relatives pitch side and lend your voices in support of these two great teams as they fly the flag for all who have ever worn the Greenwood jersey.
A huge thanks to the Deanrock Bar who have once again kindly offered to feed the teams after the matches.
Can parents bring some sandwiches / cakes for our visiting supporters, and we would like to ensure that the travelling parents return having experienced the fullness of the Greenwood hospitality.
