Never mind the International match on Saturday, the big game of the wekend for Trim sport’s fans will take place at the MDL Grounds on Sunday afternoon when the Club Seniors take on Rock Celtic from Dundalk in the semi final of the Meath & District Challenge Cup.
The Club’s only victory to date in the MDL Challenge Cup was back in 2001 when a converted penalty by Kevin Meehan and a second half strike by Brian Smith won the cup for the Club and Alan Kirwan’s team will be hoping to get through to the decider again on Sunday at the expense of the Premier Division leaders. Alan has made a special appeal to all of the Club’s supporters to come along to support his team. Managers of the Club’s many Schoolboy sides are especially asked to bring along as much support as possible.
The only selection worries faced by Alan concern Mark Gilsenan who suffrered a minor injury in training this week and Cyril Halton who is recovering from a slight illness. Both are expected to be available for selection. Kick off is 2.30pm.
Come on ye Celts!
