Borroway Rovers and Sallypark Ódhrans chase junior soccer glory in the Tipperary Cup final at Holycross on Sunday

Borroway Rovers and Sallypark Ódhrans will hope to bring their 2019-20 junior soccer seasons to a glorious conclusion on Sunday, February 16 (kick-off 2pm) when they meet in the Tipperary Cup final at Holycross.

Eugene Foley's Sallypark Ódhrans side have been a revelation in this year's competition - the first division team based at Latteragh have already accounted for Thurles Town, Killavilla United and league champions Nenagh Celtic.

Borroway Rovers, however, represent the real heart-warming story of the season. The Thurles side are managed by Paul Gould and finished second in the Premier Division despite the fact that their dressingrooms at Loughtagalla Park were extensively damaged by a fire in early 2019. Rovers shook off the heart-break associated with that incident and will enter Sunday's final full of confidence.
