We’re NOT There Just To Make Up The Numbers

615The Airtricity League season is finally upon us. After a four year absence Cobh Ramblers are back and are not there just to make up the numbers. A well deserved win against Limerick during pre-season, caught a lot of people’s attention and they were forced to share the spoils in the derby with Cork City. Manager Dave Hill has put together a strong squad. Many familiar faces have returned including Conor Meade, Captain John Meade and fans’ favourite Davin O’Neill.  New signings such as Andrew Bhandarkhar and goalkeeper Robert Birdsall have made a good start to their Ramblers’ careers.

Ramblers will start their season at home to Wexford Youths this Saturday 9th March at 19:45. The Wexford side will want to get a good start to their campaign and improve on their 4th place finish last season. Despite losing last season’s top goalscorer Danny Furlong to Cork City, they will be a strong team and it won’t be an easy start for Ramblers.

The Cobh Ramblers u19’s also have a game this weekend. They play their final home game of the season against Shelbourne on Sunday at 2:00pm. Although the title is out of reach and they are safe from relegation, Cobh will still hope to have a good finish to their first season in the Elite Division. Shelbourne are currently 3rd in the league and have reached the final of the Enda McGuill Cup. The game at St. Colman’s Park* should be a cracker. *Venue subject to change due to Senior game.

There is no shortage of football in Cobh this weekend so why not go out and support your local team!
