Gainstown set to host U12 and U16 SFAI Subway Championship and Plate National Finals

Gainstown in Mullingar is the place to be this weekend as the final games of the season in the SFAI Subway Championship and Plate take place.

Both the U12 and U16 sections of the competition will come to a conclusion on Saturday and Sunday, and there is plenty of great football to look forward to.

The action begins on Saturday when the NDSL and Longford play for the SFAI Subway Plate National title.

The NDSL overcame Cavan/Monaghan in their semi-final, while it took penalties to separate Longford and Kerry.

The U16 SFAI Subway Plate National Final will be the second game of the day, and Clare SSL will be playing Cavan/Monaghan.

Clare saw off Mayo in the semi-finals while for Cavan/Monaghan there was a tough test against the NECSL to overcome on the way to Saturday’s showpiece event.

On Sunday the SFAI Subway Championship National Finals take centre stage, and Donegal will play Cork in the U12 competition.

Both teams recorded strong wins against Galway and DDSL respectively last time out, and this is sure to be a thrilling tie.

The weekend comes to a close with a replay of last season’s U16 final, with the DDSL and Cork set to battle it out for the SFAI Subway Championship.
