15 teams dreaming of FAI Cup glory

THE 15 teams remaining in the FAI Ford Cup will learn their fate this evening as the draw for the third round is made.

The collapse of Monaghan United means that one club will be handed a bye into the quarter-finals when the balls are pulled out of the pot on RTE's 'MNS' between 7.0 and 8pm.

There are three non-league teams in search of a plum draw against a big club, with Avondale United, Cherry Orchard and Malahide United all going into the hat.

Teams in draw: 1 Avondale United; 2 Bohemians; 3 Cherry Orchard; 4 Cork City; 5 Derry City; 6 Drogheda United; 7 Dundalk; 8 Malahide United; 9 Mervue United; 10 St Patrick's Athletic; 11 Shamrock Rovers; 12 Shelbourne; 13 UCD; 14 Waterford United; 15 Wexford Youths.
