AFTER a break to accommodate the Munster Junior Cup, action reverts to the Premier League this weekend.

The obvious highlight is on Sunday morning (10.30am) when leaders Aisling Annacotty travel to face holders Pike Rovers. Elsewhere, Mungret Regional entertain Fairview Rangers, Charleville are home to Newport and Ballynanty Rovers host Carew Park.

On Saturday (7pm), Geraldines are at Regional United.

In the aforementioned Cup, holders Regional United advanced to the last 32 courtesy of a late goal from Oleg Vysochan in a 1-0 home victory over Pike Rovers.

Aisling, Mungret, Newport, and plucky Hyde Rangers (after a 35-year break) are also trough to the next stage of the coveted competition.

Meanwhile, newly purchased Treaty United – who needed to win and hope elsewhere that Athlone Town lost at home to Longford Town to secure a First Division promotion play-off place – were at Waterford for their final regular outing of the season on Friday.
