    I've been away from Wexford for a long time now so I'm probably not the best source of advice. Duncannon I would describe as 'back end of nowhere', never liked the place (losing to them in an under 14 cup semi final replay out there probably the main reason). They seem to be doing very well in recent years and I know they have a guy called 'Carlos' playing for them, who played with Sligo in the Eircom league and had trials with Wexford Youths, he's on the Oscar Traynor team too.

    Forth are a bit closer to Wexford town, another rural club, haven't a clue what facilities are like these days. Again they seem to be doing pretty well and have at least one player on the Oscar Traynor side this year. One thing both sides will guarantee is a big physical presence.

    Appreciate that. We've bin on fire this season. Scored 12 goals in competition so far against 3 Kilkenny sides. Mind you won 6-1 in junior cup last week and 10-1 in local cup week before. Will be away for this one but will pass info on. Thanks

    Duncannon should win this one,their currently 2nd in the premier division,not sure if they have any dressing rooms cause I've never played out there.Forth Celtic have a back of a truck but will probarly make the away side change on the sideline as they done to us on a number of occasions.

    Was in Duncannon recently and their pitch is fine with their own dressingrooms. Forth's pitch is not good and I think they are trying to develop their own pitch in the area.

    It's on this Sunday. Tom Elmes (played a few games for the Youths) is suspended for Duncannon and Forth Celtic are at home so they might edge it.

    Two fairly average sides, typical of the junior soccer around here!
