Packed weekend of local soccer action

THERE’S an attractive fixture in the FAI Cup on Sunday when Pike Rovers welcome Lisnagry to Crossagalla.

In the same competition, Hyde Rangers stunned home outfit Mungret Regional 5-3 (AET) at the weekend.

Pa Aherne (Mungret) and Evan Shine (Hyde) both netted memorable hat-tricks, but additional goals for Hyde from Dylan Meehan (2) counted more as the Premier A side pulled-off a notable scalp.

Elsewhere on Sunday, there’s action in the Premier League with leaders (with a game in hand on Pike) Aisling Annacotty lining out against Regional United, Geraldines challenging Charleville, Nenagh taking on Ballynanty Rovers, and Newport clashing with Carew Park.

All fixtures kick-off at 10.30am.
