Ballincollig will be favourites to win through to a final tie with Nemo Rangers after they managed to scrape by Clonakilty following extra time in the county quarter-final. Cian Dorgan, a star of their senior side, accounted for 1-9 on that occasion, with Cork U21 player Seán Kiely a central figure at midfield. His brother Cian, Dylan Kerstein and Rob Noonan are others to catch the eye. Daniel Credon and Conor O’Driscoll did most of the Aghada scoring as they edged past, while David Rice, Jack Hayes and Aaron Looney are other key members of the side.
Did you know? No East Cork club has reached the U21 final since Erin’s Own did in 2002 and ’03.
