Avenue Utd and Newmarket Celtic clash on Friday in the Premier League Cup decider, days after the club’s had very different outcomes in the FAI Junior Cup.

The league cup finals take centre stage this weekend in the Clare soccer league’s fixtures list, with games on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Frank Healy Park.

Proceedings get underway on this Friday evening with the clash of the ‘big two’, Newmarket Celtic and Avenue United in the Premier Final at 7:30pm.

Avenue currently lead the Premier Division but Newmarket have a couple of games in hand. Any time these sides meet, it attracts huge interest and this week’s contest should be no different.

Both the First and Second Division league cup finals are set for Saturday, also at the county grounds.

Saturday’s programme gets underway at 5p.m. with the meeting of Shannon Town B and Newmarket Celtic B and it will be followed at 7.30p.m. by the meeting of Connolly Celtic and Rhine Rovers in the Second Division final.

The third division final will see Ennis Dons take on Bunratty/Cratloe at 12 noon on Sunday, also at Frank Healy Park.

A league meeting earlier this week agreed that if any of these finals end level after ninety minutes, the games will go straight to penalties as extra time will not apply.
