TWO of the top players in the Clare District Soccer League are major injury doubts for the showpiece event for the sport in the county.

Rivals Avenue Utd and Newmarket Celtic do battle on Saturday in Frank Healy Park. Pa Gleeson has been appointed as the match referee for the Ennis Carpets Clare Cup final which kicks off at 17:30.

For Newmarket Celtic, one of their key men is also poised to miss out on the Cup final. Centre-half Harvey Cullinan has missed out on Newmarket’s final encounters in the Premier Division and was an absentee in their Cup semi-final win over Fern Celtic.

As part of the build-up to Saturday’s Clare Cup final, The Clare Echo has recorded a special edition of The Water Break previewing the game. Become a subscriber of The Clare Echo for full access to this video podcast.
