Irish Pair Avoid City In Uefa Draw

  • Tue, Jul 01, 2008 @ 16:46

Both St Patrick's Athletic and Cork City have missed out on a lucrative clash with Manchester City in the first qualifying round of the Uefa Cup.

Instead, Cork will meet Finland's FC Haka, who who have tackled both Liverpool and Rangers in European competition in recent year.

As with Drogheda in the Champions League, St Pat's face a trip to the Baltic having been drawn against the unheralded Latvians Olimps.

City, meanwhile, were paired against EB/Streymur of the Faroe Islands.

While the tie itself should prove no problem for manager Mark Hughes, with the first leg away he has little time to prepare for the trip on July 17th.
