Keith Callanan was in charge of last Monday's Saxone Cup final at Turner's Cross. His father Ted was one of his assistants. Are Ted and Keith the first father and son combination to officiate at an adult final at the Cross?

Churchvilla 3 Dunbar Celtic 2

Three first half goals were enough to give Churchvilla (Cloyne) a 3-2 triumph over Dunbar Celtic in the final of the Murphy’s Stout Saxone Cup at Turner’s Cross last evening. Just enough, as Dunbar powered back in the second half, scored a couple and hit the bar in injury time.

Dave O’Callaghan (on the ball in pic) and Colin Barrett did most of the damage as Ballincollig demolished Hibernians 7-1 in the first leg of their County Cup semi-final at Shanbally this afternoon. Two own goals also helped as Ballincollig went in at the break 5-1 up. Benny O’Leary and skipper Cathal O’Callaghan scored late in the second half to complete the rout.

Leeds also through

Impressive finishing was the order of the day as Leeds booked their place in the last four of the Murphy’s Stout City Challenge Cup with a 5-1 derby win over Inter City Celtic at Leeds Park on Sunday morning.

Home keeper Graham Larkin made a couple of top drawer saves and their goals came from Barry Lawlor, Liam Aherne (left in pic, tussling with Gordon Lynch who scored for Celtic), Alan Holland, Dean Buckley and Rob Kreigal.

Douglas Hall, noteworthy also-rans in AUL 1, advanced to the last four of the Murphy’s Stout City Challenge Cup with a comfortable 4-2 win over Castleview, the probable champions in AUL 1A. Ciaran Olliffe netted two gems for the Joe Harris managed winners in this afternoon's game in Moneygourney (action left).
Change of plan tomorrow

The Glenthorn v Mayfield AOH game has been postponed until midweek Looks like Leeds v Inter City, in the City Cup, will be my game instead.

Ian Kenneally’s second half strike (left) was enough to give Ballincollig a just about deserved 1-0 win over Passage in the final of the Murphy’s Stout President’s Cup at Turner’s Cross to-night.

The goal came in the 49th minute, quite a simple one. Mullane’s pass from the centre circle cut through the high Passage defence and found Kenneally breaking through. He coolly outfoxed his marker and slotted his low shot neatly into the corner.
