Herald Metropolitan Cup: Leicester Celtic v Newbridge Town   11/11/2016

LSL Herald Metropolitan Cup

Leicester Celtic

Newbridge Town

Newbridge Town travel to Loretto Park to take on Leicester Celtic in the first round of the Metro on Sunday afternoon. On paper the visitors should have an advantage but this usually goes out the window when it comes to cup ties.

This will be the first time that the two teams have met in the Leinster Senior League as Leicester have moved up through the junior divisions only entered the intermediate section in 2015. That has not stopped them having some good cup runs including the last 8 of the Moore Cup last season.

Leicester have struggled at the start of this season in Senior 1B and they are hovering just outside the bottom three at this early stage of the season. Newbridge on the other hand have had a strong start in Senior 1 and lie just one place and one point off top spot. Newbridge have also had some very good cup runs last season which saw them to the semi final of the Metro Cup before a very controversial disallowed goal saw them bow out against Tullmaore.

The game will kick off at 2pm and hopefully it will be the start of another cup run for NTFC.
