Old rivals go head-to-head for Cahill Cup

The season's first piece of intermediate silverware is up for grabs tomorrow as Crumlin United and Bluebell United clash at the Belfield Bowl for the prestigious Cahill Cup.

These old foes have taken lumps off each other over the years and tomorrow is expected to be another passion play from two of the LSL's top sides. Bluebell lifted the recent gloom around the Red Cow on Wednesday night with a win over Drumcondra, their first win in five league games.

Crumlin were in the Belfield campus on Wednesday night and they will hope to avoid a repeat performance tomorrow as they suffered a first loss in four games as they conceded a late goal against UCD.

Route to the Final...


Bell edged by Killester in round one and followed up by coming out on the upside of a five- goal thriller with Newbridge. United were taken to penalties by Drumcondra in the quarter-final. Another top flight rival succumbed to Andy Noonan's side in the last four as the Bell ousted holders Tolka Rovers by four goals to one.


The Blues eased their way by Broadford in the first round. They were made to work in round two as St Pats CY pushed them to extra-time. Peamount/Moyle Park were dismissed in the quarter finals as Martin Loughran's side netted four times without reply. Ger Rowe and Greg Moorehouse eased Crumlin by Greystones in the semis.
