Sheriff YC are into the final of the FAI Junior Cup after they travelled to Killarney to Play Killarney Celtic and came away triumphant, winning 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw. The set up in Killarney was excellent and great credit must go to Killarney Celtic and Mastergeeha FC. A huge crowd turned up hoping to see an upset but it was not to be. Sheriff with all their experience came through despite going one down in the shootout. Their keeper Lee Murphy once again the hero saving two penalties.
