North End through to last sixteen date with Booth Road Celtic

A last minute change of venue from Hollygrove in Wexford town to Curracloe United did not upset North End's run in the O Neills LFA Junior Cup as they overcame a decent Ardmore Rovers from the LSL. It was always going to be a tricky match for the Wexford town side but they used their experience to handle the difficult conditions and produce a hard working performance against an Ardmore side who are enjoying a decent run of form in recent weeks. Paul "Spot" Murphy was the hero for North End as he scored a hat trick to earn North End a last sixteen game away to Booth Road Celtic, which will be played on Saturday March 23rd in Corkagh Park at 2pm

Ireland Under 18s reclaim John Coughlan Cup

Published: Friday, 01 March 2019 12:41
Republic of Ireland home based Under Eighteens reclaimed the John Coughlan Memorial Cup when a 3-2 win in Bala Town saw them overcome Wales 4-2 on aggregate. After Josh Derham's goal saw Ireland win 1-0 on Tuesday, this 3-2 win yesterday saw the lads reclaim the cup which Wales had won in Tramore last year. Crumlin United's Rian Ashe gave Ireland the lead but two goals from Wales had them in front as the game approached the break before Ashe scored his second to equalise and Donegal man Aaron McDaid scored just before half time to give the Republic of Ireland victory
Well done to all six LFA players, and indeed the whole squad, on this achievement

LFA members: Conor Brady (Naas FC), Rian Ashe (Crumlin United), Eanna Doyle (Cloughbawn AFC), Josh Derham (Naas FC), Niall Connolly (North End United), Jack Doyle (Stella Maris)
