Youths: Athlone Await Dundalk in 13 May Decider

November 8, 2018

Dundalk Youths will face Athlone Town in the Ferrari Cup final at the AUL Complex on Sunday 13 May.

The game is a repeat of last year’s League Cup decider between the sides at U17 level, which Athlone won 2-0 thanks to two late goals.

The young Lilywhites made it through to the final on Sunday following a 2-1 extra-time victory over Saint Joseph’s/Bray Wanderers, having beaten UCD/Mount Merrion and Malahide United in the previous rounds.

Dundalk have already played Athlone twice in the league this term, beating them 2-0 at Oriel Park in September before losing a two-goal lead in a 2-2 draw in the midlands in March.

Meanwhile, Alan Browne’s side have been drawn away to Stella Maris in the Leinster Youth Cup semi-finals, a tie which is set to take place on Sunday 15 April.
