Irish Senior Cup: Cork County v Eglinton team news

Cork County make the long trip to Derry this weekend to take on Eglinton at Woodvale Road in the 1st Round of the Bob Kerr Irish Senior Cup. It will be a repeat of the first Round clash between the two sides from 4 years ago when Eglinton came out on top by 50 runs when they set the Cork side a target of 261. The Cork County squad will be weakened due to injuries and eligibility issues with former captain Robert Duggan sidelined with a broken toe while both Sidhz Joshi and wicket keeper Shannon Madden are ineligible for the competition. All-rounder Andrew Saul is also unavailable for the trip up north so captain Bruce Koch will be relying on the squad’s strength in depth to mount a challenge this Saturday. The squad in full is as follows:

Bob Kerr Irish Senior Cup 1st Round:
Saturday 14th May, Woodvale Road, Eglington.

  10. Matt Reed

    Unlucky lads,
    Always tough to travel up north and take on a side that strong in their home patch. You certainly won’t get any favours from the umpires if you know what I mean.

    I am sure ye did the side proud after the match though, there has been some wild nights up north, hope the tradition lives on 😉
