Pike Rovers reach FAI Junior Cup final

Two late goals from Pike Rovers earned them a 2-0 win over St Peter’s of Athlone in Wednesday night’s FAI Junior Cup semi-final in Tullamore.

This game originally took place ten days ago in Leah Victoria Park in Tullamore but was abandoned midway through because of a snow storm. This time the sides played the full 90 minutes with late goals from Steven McGann and John Connery getting Pike over the line.

They will now play Dublin side Sheriff YC in the final in the Aviva Stadium next month and will aim to win the title for the first time since 2011.
