UCC’s senior side face fellow MSL Premier Division outfit Cobh Wanderers in the 2018 Donie Forde Cup Final this Friday night at Turners Cross. Kick-off is at 19:30 for what should be an entertaining clash between the fourth and fifth placed sides in the league. UCC come into the game on the back of a 2-0 win against Bandon in the Beamish Cup while Cobh defeated Rockmount in the same competition on penalties this week.

UCC defender Ben McAuliffe had this to say about the game, “It’s always nice to get to a final, and we’re looking forward to it, but we want to go all the way this year. We’ve had some great games with Cobh since I’ve been at the club in the past few years and this shouldn’t be any different. It should be a good night at The Cross on Friday.”
