Gorgeous Friday night in June
Balmy evening, most opportune
Knockgriffin Park the scene is set
East Cork pining for Cup upset
Perfect football watching weather
The games fraternity drawn together
Jumper brought still waist entwined
Sixteen degrees at half past nine
Three days later more of the same
Another cup another game
Premier Dubs were coming down
A test to show how much we’d grown
The summer sun a distant friend
Showers, dark clouds, rain descends
Big coats and hats, umbrellas too
Fridays sun all gone, Atchoo!
We played Midleton FC below in Midleton last Friday night in the FAI Cup 3rd Round.
A glorious occassion for our East Cork neighbours and a glorious evening to boot.
We played St Patricks Athletic yesterday at Turners Cross in the League Cup Quarter Final, a mere 3 days later on what was a miserable day. Through the wind and rain.
We won both matches and progressed in both cups
