It was a busy weekend for Irish amateur clubs in the first Round of the FAI Senior Cup.
In total, twelve amateur sides lined out and four have made it through to tomorrow night’s second round draw.
On Saturday afternoon Ballincollig were beaten 5-0 by SSE Airtricity League First Division side Athlone, however there were two all-amateur clashes.
Down in Cork, Cobh Wanderers defeated Kerry rivals Killarney Celtic by three goals to nil. First half goals from Conor Meade, James Stoat, and a penalty from David Stack ensured a comfortable win for the Leesiders.
The game of the day came in Dublin as Bangor Celtic came from two goals down with fifteen minutes to go to win 3-2 against Cork side Everton. Jason Sexton and Lawrence Fitzpatrick had given the Togher team the lead before goals from Caleb Murray, Lar Dunne, and Michael Fox secured a sensational win for the Dubliners.
Finally there was a 4-0 loss for Kilkenny side Evergreen, who fell against Drogheda United, with late goals adding some gloss to the scoreline.
