Strand Rovers will get another chance at lifting the Voodoo Venue Cup after reaching the final for the second season in a row by defeating Fintown Harps on Saturday afternoon at Diamond Park, Ballyare.
Last season they lost the decider in a very entertaining battle with Arranmore United at An Screban.
They will not have it anyway easy, however. In the final, they will meet Glencar Celtic who are one of the League’s most highly regarded Saturday outfits.
The Letterkenny based side defeated Castlefin Celtic Reserves, also on Saturday, and will want to end the season with silverware.
It would take a brave man to place a substantial wager on this one which promises to be a close affair.
Certainly, a date for the Diary of any neutral who wants to see local soccer played at it’s best in a Cup Final atmosphere.
The Final will take place at Diamond Park, Ballyare in the coming weeks.
