Graduates battle for IDM FAI Cup Final place

Success for FAI/ETB graduates as they battle for a place in the Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup Final.
28th Sep 2017

Former graduates of the Cork FAI/ETB Soccer Academy will clash at Turners Cross with a place in the Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup Final.

Garry Buckley from Cork City and Stephen Kenny from Limerick will lock horns in what is set to be a terrific Munster derby.

Both players are a success story of the FAI's involvement in Local Training Initiatives. Buckley has been a consistent performer in the league leaders' midfield and was a trainee in the 2012-13 programme. 

Kenny

Two years previously, Stephen Kenny, who was brought up in Passage West on the outskirts of Cork City, also had a season of full time training that set him up for a career in the professional game when he completed the programme in 2010-11. 

Cork City have home advantage as they try for a third successive Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup Final and a little revenge after last week's 2-1 defeat at the hands of their Munster rivals at the Markets Field.
