Two LFA Senior Cup ties down for decision

Published: Friday, 15 March 2019 10:20
No fixtures in LFA competitions in the coming days due to St Patricks weekend but there are two LFA Senior Cup games down for decision early next week. On Monday, Bray Wanderers host near neighbours Cabinteely FC in a Fourth Round tie with a 2-30pm kick off in Carlisle Grounds. Bray got the final of the revamped competition in 2010 where they were beaten 4-0 by Shelbourne and since then have never really had a good run in the competition. Cabinteely have never got the bit between their teeth in this competition either and have never progressed beyond the Fourth Round stage in their short history

On Tuesday evening, Firhouse Clover will host Sheriff YC in what promises to be a cracking game between two in form sides with a home game against Drogheda United the reward for the winner. This game on Tuesday kicks off at 7-45pm in Sacred Heart's ground in Killinarden.

North End United are through to quarter finals of the O Neills LFA Youth Cup after a difficult 5-3 win away to Parkville United. The Wexford side could never claim to be completely in control of the game but still managed to do enough to go through to a last eight meeting at home to St Kevins Boys

Baldoyle through to last eight of LFA Junior Cup

Published: Tuesday, 12 March 2019 13:06
Baldoyle United travelled to Carlow on Sunday and a hard working display saw them overcome an injury stricken Hanover Harps side 3-2. The AUL side always seemed to be chasing the game as they conceded early and had to withstand a barrage of Hanover attacks to keep themselves in the game, still just 1-0 down at the break. The second half was a little more evenly contested but it was fifteen minutes from time before the visitors levelled, only for Hanover to score again a minute later. It took great character for Baldoyle to continue to press forward and minutes later, they were level again and with three minutes to go, found the net for what proved to be the winner and booked their place in the last eight
