Old Wesley to resume battle with St Mary’s
Old Wesley’s first AIL encounter with St Mary’s was in 1992 in Old Wesley’s first season in AIL Division 1. The two clubs met again each year until 1996-97 but have not met since in the competition. On this Saturday 28th November we meet again at Templeville Rd in what will surely be one of Old Wesley’s toughest matches of the season. While many friendships will be renewed in the clubhouse expect nothing short of a competitive and physical encounter on the pitch. The hosts hold the slight edge having won 6 of their 7 matches this season compared to Old Wesley who are just one win behind. Mary’s are current table toppers 3 points and 2 places ahead of Wesley but Morgan Lennon’s charges must surely have their confidence boosted after their bonus point win in their last match against Blackrock. We appeal to all members to come along and support our club.
