BALLYBOFEY MAN JOHNNY DUNLEAVY will captain Cork City to the FAI Cup final after the Leesiders defeated Bray Wanderers in this afternoon’s semi-final at The Carlisle grounds.
Danny Morrissey’s goal after 60 minutes handed John Caulfield’s side the win.
Dunleavy suffered a broken cheekbone in August, but he was back in the side for the FAI Cup quarter-final replay win over Derry City at Turner’s Cross.
Dunleavy was appointed Cork captain at the start of the 2014.
The summer of 2011 saw him released from Wolves, a knee injury whilst on loan at Barnet, with whom he had made his Football League debut, finally ending his time at Molineaux.
He’d signed as a schoolboy in 2006 and made the switch across channel in the summer of 2007. A trial with Vancouver Whitecaps didn’t get any further and he was linked with League of Ireland clubs, including Derry City and Dundalk.
Cork came calling and Dunleavy has settled in Rebel country now and will be hoping to lift the Cup at the Aviva Stadium.
They’ll meet Dundalk in the final after Morrissey held off his marker to fire home the only goal of the game.Tags:
