Mallow United U12 boys travel to Dublin this coming Saturday to take on the might of Shamrock Rovers in the quarter finals of the National Cup competition. The boys have done very well to get down to the last eight teams in Ireland in a cup run that began in mid-September and has seen them score an impressive 21 goals while only conceding 2 in their six games so far. The Mallow boys began the competition with a comfortable win over Rockmount in the first round before going on to defeat Blarney and St. Marys in October. A hard fought 2-1 win away to Ringmahon Rangers in November was rewarded with entry into the National draw where Mallow first defeated Portlaoise at St. Gobnaits Park before coming out on top in penalty shoot away to Shannon Hibs. Their heroic efforts have been rewarded with an away trip to one of Irelands most well-known clubs which is sure to be a memorable occasion for all involved regardless of the result. The game takes place on Saturday March 9th at Roadstone Astro in Kingswood, Tallaght with a 3pm kick-off. The club is very proud of the boys achievement and wishes them the best of luck on the road to Dublin.
