Our First XV make the trip to Musgrave Park, Cork on Sunday, March 13th (4.15pm kick-off) to take on Newcastle West RFC in the Munster Junior Clubs Challenge Cup Final.

Clanwilliam FC’s journey to the final began with Skibbereen RFC conceeding in Round 1, followed by a 22 – 17 win against Bandon RFC in October and finally securing a place in the Final with a 16 -7 win vs. Mallow RFC in December.

Newcastle West RFC defeated Thomond RFC in Liam Fitzgerald Park by 20 points to 10 in Round 1 and followed with a 34 – 3 win vs. Crosshaven RFC at home. Newcastle West RFC then secured their spot in the Final with a resounding 36 – 0 win away to Kilfeacle & District RFC.

We are asking all Clanwilliam FC fans to support our team in Musgrave Park.
