Junior Section Reaches Showdown – Day 3 Preview

Jul 27, 2016 | Junior Section | 0 comments

Five teams go into the final day of group fixtures in the Junior Section with the maximum six points from their first two games. But with only four teams proceeding to the semi-finals of the cup competition, it promises to be a tense Wednesday at the Super Cup NI, with several teams waiting in the wings to take advantage of any slip-ups.

Chivas Guadalajara have had no shortage of goals to date, with comprehensive victories over Swindon Town (5-0) and Middlesbrough (6-1). The Mexican side will look to continue their fine form against Dundalk SL at Anderson Park on Wednesday (3.30pm kick-off).


Sheffield Utd also have six points in the bag following wins over Club NI and Donegal – their quest for a full sweep also kicks off at 3.30pm on Wednesday against Partick Thistle at Clough.


Strikers FC of the USA have secured wins over Fermanagh and Swindon Town, and face Middlesbrough at Noon in Coleraine’s Anderson Park looking to extend their unbeaten record. 


County Down are also on six points following their wins over Partick Thistle and Club NI. And the local side will be searching for their third win in a row against Southampton at Riada Stadium in Ballymoney (5pm kick-off).


Current holders Right to Dream of Ghana have scored eight goals and conceded none in their two group games to date, and will look to cement their place in the semi-finals if they can get a win against North Dublin SL (Broughshane, 1.30pm).


There are five teams on four points going into Day 3, and all of them will be hoping for a win in their final group fixture and dropped points elsewhere to make it into the semi-finals. Of this group, Plymouth Argyle are in pole position given their goal difference, and will take on County Armagh at Noon in Limavady’s Roe Mill. County Londonderry, First Choice Soccer, Rangers and Southampton make up the other sides with four points heading into Wednesday’s matches.
