2019 Review: FAI New Balance Intermediate Cup

Cork's Avondale United cemented their place as kings of the FAI New Balance Intermediate Cup in May, with a 1-0 win over Crumlin United in Aviva Stadium.
21st Dec 2019

Avondale's triumph (their eighth in total) moved them three wins clear at the top of the Intermediate Cup Roll of Honour. It is the seventh time the Cork club won the title since 2006.

 

Mark O'Sullivan scored the only goal in an entertaining tie in Aviva Stadium, with a tremendous first-half strike.

 

In a year of high quality, four-time winners Crumlin United eliminated 2018 winners Maynooth University Town in the semi-finals, as Avondale defeated three-time winners and local rivals Rockmount in their semi-final.
