The Charity Cup Final between Cashel and Cork Constitution FC will take place on Saturday, 14th December at Musgrave Park (kick-off 2pm).
The West Cork side, who have been together since U14 level will have no shortage of supporters at tomorrow’s Final with a number of busloads making the journey. The Club are hopeful that their coaches, volunteers and players will be duly rewarded for all their hard work over the last number of seasons but know it is an achievement in itself in reaching the Final.
Speaking on behalf of Bandon U19s, Coach Dan Murphy said “it’s a great occasion for a town like Bandon to reach the Final and there is huge excitement amongst the locals which is a great indication of what youth club rugby is all about”.
Murphy, father of the side’s out-half and captain Jack Murphy, went on to say that “training has been going really well throughout the season and this week the squad has been totally focused on Saturday’s game. Naas are a strong side with previous All Ireland Final experience however we are really looking forward to the challenge and hopefully will have the cup coming home with us to Bandon.”
