Munster Senior Cup champions Waterford United advanced to the semi-final of this season’s competition when they defeated 2009 Premier League winners Tramore at the RSC on Tuesday.
The seasiders were the only team to defeat the Blues during the pre-season games and once again they gave a good account of themselves, although their two goals came from set-pieces, the second from a stoppage time penalty which was harshly awarded to say the least.
The main highlight of the game was a stunning goal scored by Waterford’s new signing George O’Callaghan. The former Cork City, Ipswich Town and Yeovil player found the net from 25 yards with a stunning volley on 64 minutes, and his sublime strike showed what a class act he can be on his day.
“That was my first 90 minutes for over four months and it was great to get a full game under my belt. To score was an added bonus but I will admit I was thrilled when the ball hit the back of the net. The goal has given me a wonderful confidence boost and hopefully along with the rest of the team we can get back on track in the league and push on for promotion”, he beamed happily afterwards.
