Stephen Henderson and his young Cobh Ramblers side are looking forward to testing themselves against Premier Division opposition in this weekend’s FAI Cup game against Limerick in St Colman’s Park.
Hendo’s side go into the game in good form, and don’t fear the task in hand, “This week we can go and enjoy ourselves against a very good limerick team in the FAI cup. We have good momentum now and it would be great to continue this into cup games as well and try get a decent run in the cup which would be brilliant for the club. We have no fear playing anybody at this stage and would give anybody a game on our day do next week should be a cracking cup tie and one we are all looking forward to.”
Ramblers closed the gap to First Division leaders Waterford to seven points last weekend after they beat Longford Town 2-0 while Waterford could only manage a 1-1 draw with Cabinteely.
Henderson reflected on the game against Longford. “Felt we were worthy winners against a very good Longford team. Both teams played a nice style of football but it was mostly in front of each other so it would have needed something a bit special for either side to score and thankfully we came up with it.”
“Young Cian Leonard’s free kick was fantastic and very reminiscent to Dean Swords opening day screamer v Wexford while young Kev Taylor’s delivery for Darren Murphys goal was exquisite.”

“All told we were excellent on the night and it enabled us to get more game time for both Cian Leonard and young Bennon Whitmarsh who have been fantastic any time they have played for us.”
“At this stage we are only concentrating on taking each game on its merits and try win as many as we can between now and the end of the season.”
