Enniscorthy's cup tie postponed

There was disappointment for the Enniscorthy and Bangor teams as the referee postponed their Irish Junior Cup semi-final 30 minutes before kick-off on Saturday after a torrential downpour made the pitch unsafe according to the Cork official.

The visitors were particularly frustrated after making the long journey on Friday night. It was probably the right decision and of course the weather is playing havoc with all sports at the moment.

The other all-Ulster semi-final between Instonians and Clogher Valley also fell foul of the weather. It does mean for Enniscorthy now that there might well be a fixture log-jam.

They are due to play Ashbourne next Saturday in their Division 1A league match that they have in hand, but at the time of going to press it was not known yet which fixture will take place.

Although they didn't play in the league they are still top with a game in hand, although DLSP play Clondalkin tomorrow night and a win would put them first.

A special visitor turned up to see the match on Saturday and was obviously disappointed that it didn't go ahead like everyone else. Fred Campatelli from Boston, who played with the club in the late '80s and early '90s, was in Enniscorthy last week visiting friends.

Fred won a fourths medal in 1992 and made a major contribution to the club in his time in Ireland. He was the M.D. of Braun in Carlow when it was in operation for a number of years but eventually moved back to Boston.

He left a big impression in his time here and in fact the first aid room was donated by the affable American. His wife, Gail, accompanied him.
