They’ll compete for silverware in the FAI Junior Cup final, a national amateur football cup competition for junior association football clubs in the Republic of Ireland.

Fairview Rangers (eight-time winners) and Dublin’s Cherry Orchard (seven-time winners) are two of the most successful teams in the competition, a competition that receives almost 600 applications from clubs.

It’s been an incredible run thus far for the Wexford side, and their latest semi-final victory against St Michael’s of Tipperary highlighted their never-say-die attitude after grabbing two late goals to seal a 2-1 victory.

Stand-out players for North End include Paul ‘Spot’ Murphy, Gary Delaney and Robin Dempsey to name just a few.

Their opponents, Pike Rovers (Limerick), were runners-up in the competition last year, but they’ll be hoping to go one step further on the weekend.
