United on road again
North End United have been drawn away to Dublin side Ayrfield United in the quarter-finals of the FAI Junior Cup.
Having impressively overcome Killarney Celtic 4-1 in Kerry with goals from Shane Dempsey (two), Kyle Dempsey and Paul 'Spot' Murphy, the Sky Blues' reward was another away fixture, something they have become accustomed to this season.
'We're drawn away again, which is the seventh time out of eight,' said North End manager John Godkin.
'Being drawn away in Dublin is not too bad though, it's only a couple of hours up the road.
'We know a bit about Ayrfield as well as they're a Leinster Senior League team.
'At this stage no matter who you meet it's going to be tough. Of course we would have liked a home draw, but that's the way it goes,' he said.
The tie, which is set for the weekend of March 10/11, is still slightly up in the air, as Newfoundwell, who beat Ayrfield, but were subsequently thrown out for allegedly fielding an ineligible player, have lodged an appeal.
