Galway Utd face a disheartening start to the season – Connacht Tribune – Galway City Tribune:

It’s better to arrive late to the party than not to arrive at all, but Galway United know a hostile reception awaits them when they travel to Turners Cross this Friday to face Cork City in their first game of the season. 2022 of the First Division (7:45 p.m.). ).

The new season started last weekend but United were the odd one out in the nine-team Premier League and were therefore left behind while the country’s other 18 clubs were able to dust off the cobwebs of the off season. .

Well, not all of them, as Cobh Ramblers and Longford Town were also able to sit and watch the opening weekend from the stands after their encounter on Strokestown Road was canceled due to a frozen pitch.

Three Premier League games have been played, and the results of those games leave United in no doubt as to the extent of the difficulties they face this season, with Waterford, Treaty United and Cork City all registering landslide victories.

Waterford FC won 5-2 at Athlone Town; Treaty United won 5-1 against Wexford FC; and most emphatically of all, Cork City won 6-0 against Bray Wanderers. United manager John Caulfield was at the game at the Carlisle Grounds and was impressed with what he saw from the visiting side.

“I think we all know Cork will be tough this year. They recruited well, bringing [Ally] Gilchrist and Kevin O’Connor from Shelbourne and they brought [Barry] Coffey back from Celtic.

“We know everything about Ruairi Keating, and they have [Dylan] McGlade too, he scored a hat-trick in Bray – they are much stronger than they were last year,” he said.
