Athlone Town Excited By Shelbourne Quarter-Finals Challenge

The two sides meet in the All Island cup this weekend.

There'll be plenty on the line when Athlone Town and Shelbourne meet in the Women's All Island Cup Quarter-Finals this weekend.

The two sides have competed for the last two consecutive FAI Cups, they've met in a President's Cup final, and they occupy the top two places in the Premier Division.

There was nothing to separate the two clubs the last time they met in league action, with Madie Gibson's late equaliser securing a share of the spoils for Athlone.

Town's manager and former Shels striker and coach, Ciaran Kilduff has been telling Midlands 103's David Hollywood an away day against one of the best team's in the country is a challenge that excites his players:

Kick off in Tolka Park is set for 2pm tomorrow.

Elsewhere in the competition, Linfield face Wexford, and Shamrock Rovers take on Peamount United.

Meanwhile Treaty United and Galway United will play their quarter final on Saturday week.
