1752091A trip to France awaits Athletic next week when we face Olympique Sportive Maninkerque in the Brook Street Cup Semi-Finals.

An interested spectator at Maninkerque’s 4-3 win over Knights Alliance FC yesterday afternoon was Marcus Lövman who said afterwards, “Both sides were very strong, so regardless of who won, we always knew we would be in for a very tough game next week”.

“As it happens, it’s Maninkerque we’ll be facing, and they looked very impressive in the game this afternoon. However we’ll go into the match looking to secure a place in the final. We’ll have to be at our very best though, that can’t be denied”.
