Leinster Senior League
The Hit Man hit top form for Usher Celtic on Sunday as the AUL Premier A cantered in the next round of the Leinster Junior Cup.
Former Hardwicke and Rivervalley front man Thomas Cooney hit no few than five goals in his first start for the club as they defeated Stamullen in the prestigious cup contest.
Usher, who are a team blessed with attacking options, flirted with hitting double figures against a side that exited the FAI Junior Cup at the hands of Clondalkin Celtic last weekend, but fell just one short in a comprehensive win.
Regular goal getters Jordan Buckley, Jay Ivory and Ger Jordan were on the score sheet in the 9-2 win.
However, it was Cooney who grabbed the headlines with a five goal full debut haul.
