County Final re-scheduled

The C.C.C. has rescheduled the date for the Belfry Senior County Final to Sunday 13th October, which will ensure there will be no clash with the FAI Ford Cup semi-final a week earlier between Sligo Rovers and Shamrock Rovers.

On making the announcement Chairman of the C.C.C. Pat McGrath said: ‘Sport will be the winner from this rearrangement. The County Final and FAI Cup semi-final are the two biggest sporting occasions in Sligo this year, and it made no sense to have them clashing on the same day. There are many people who wish to attend both games, and I know many people from Sligo and particularly South Sligo who would like to attend the game in the Showgrounds to support Sligo Rovers and Rafael Cretaro; with the re-fixture of the County Final to 13th October, they will now be able to go to both games.

For sports fans in County Sligo, these are games to savor and remember, We can now look forward to wonderful sporting occasions, and I fully believe that both fixtures will live up to expectations.

I would like to thank the many people who accommodated the C.C.C. in making this decision; the local sporting public owes them a debt of gratitude.

Sligo County Board wishes Sligo Rovers the best of luck in the FAI Ford Cup Semi Final and hopes to see them reach the Final in the Aviva once again.
