Glengad United have reached the quarter final of the FAI Junior Cup for the second time in three years.
The first time they did it was in 2016 when they got drawn away against Pike Rovers [Limerick]. They ended up losing out 4-0, playing against a top quality side.
Glengad won their first league title in the 2014-15 and have really pushed on since then winning four in a row.
Their squad has been improving constantly despite losing some big players over the years.
The manager Shane Byrne has done a great job since coming in in 2012 and has got a winning mentality installed in the dressing room.
They have won the last four Inishowen Premier Division titles in a row and are still up there this season.
They are certainly pushing on a lot of fronts: still being in contention for the league, in the Ulster cup final, the FAI Junior Cup quarter final, the Knockalla Cup and the Credit Union Cup.
It will be no easy task going down to Clonmel and they will have to work hard if they are to get into the semi-finals for the first time.
It is a great achievement for a small club in Donegal to be in the top 8 amateur teams in all of Ireland.
They have been going well this season.
Glengad are the only remaining team from Ulster in the competition with Tipperary South & District league having two teams in the draw, St Michaels and Clonmel Town, who Glengad face this Sunday.
The quarter final draw as is follows:
Regional United v Sheriff YC
Evergreen FC v St. Michaels FC
Westport United v Ashling Annacotty FC
Clonmel Town FC v Glengad United
Clonmel Town v Glengad United
Dr. O’ Callaghan Park
