They finished last season partying together but will begin the next campaign at footballing war.
The traditional meeting of the FAI Junior Cup winners and the FAI Intermediate Champions throws up a mouthwatering clash between two clubs that share close ties, but can prove fierce rivals when pitted against each other.
In a repeat of the 2015 FAI Junior Cup final Sheriff YC and Liffey Wanderers, sides separated by just the width of the Liffey will compete in the Tom Hand Cup final.
It’s a clash that will certainly attract attention of the amateur fan and one that should prove entertaining.
This year the tie will take place on August 6 and will play out at Home Farm, with kick off scheduled for 2;00pm.
