ALL roads will lead to Turner's Cross tonight for the clash of Blarney United v Carrigaline United in the Under 17 Gussie Walsh Cup Final at 7.30pm.

This should be a cracker of a game, because when both these sides meet two weeks ago in an League game at O’Shea Park it was a magnificent game of football where Blarney came out on top 5-3.

Blarney will start slight favorites tonight, and Donal Cronin will look to front two Dylan Doherty and Cameron Lynch for big games. 

He will be also looking for Craig Walsh (who put in a man of the match performance the last time the both sides met) to continue his good form as his pace cause Carrigaline all sorts of problems in the last game.

However, Carrigaline will come into this final with plenty of confidence, as they know if they play well tonight they will be going home victorious. They will looking for big performances from the influential Conor Nolan, Adam Costello and Daniel Apantauk if they are to take the cup home tonight.
