Mayfield's AOH draw with Dripsey
Mayfield, in AOH draw against Dripsey (below)


Mayfield United 1 Dripsey Celtic 1

Mayfield United let higher ranked Dripsey Celtic off the hook in Saturday’s Murphy’s Stout AOH Cup tie at Mayfield United Park. The game ended at 1-1, after extra time, and visitors Dripsey were very relieved that they were to get a second bite of the cherry.

The AUL’s Barry Peelo was at the game and he summed it up: “Mayfield were the dominant team over the 90 minutes and in midfielder Brian Atkinson had the man of the match. He picked out his colleagues at will with accurate and intelligent use of the ball and made a massive contribution throughout the game, being the main link between defence and attack and set up numerous attacks.”

“Mayfield had at least 80% of the play and missed a glorious opportunity to go ahead when Atkinson’s penalty was saved in the 22nd minute. This was about the only thing that the midfielder did wrong. Both goals came in the first period of extra time within a minute of each other, the first by Dripsey’s David O’Sullivan and the immediate response by David Kenny.”

Mayfield started well. After good support play from Trevor Aherne and David Kenny, the in-rushing Ray Atkins latched onto Kenny’s low cross but a tackle by Trevor O’Sullivan took the sting out of his effort and keeper Raymond Moynihan easily gathered.

Brian Atkinson was showing some early signs that he wanted to control mid-field and, in the 20th minute, he picked out Ian Saville with a marvellous ball over the top but Brian Linehan got there in the nick of time to spoil the move.

Mayfield were awarded a penalty shot in the 22nd minute when Kenny sailed past three defenders en route to goal before being dragged down by the Dripsey goalkeeper. Referee Sean Hegarty had no choice but to point to the spot but Moynihan saved the Atkinson effort.

This did not upset Atkinson’s concentration as he continued to set up moves for his team-mates and, in the 25th minute, he picked out Kenny with a fine cross-field pass. Kenny in turn pushed it wide for Ian Saville whose cross just failed to reach his brother Adrian near goal.

Dripsey were unlucky when Garry Murphy just failed to connect in front of goal from a ball delivered in from the right by Paddy Sullivan.

Mayfield were well on top in the first half and just before half-time Trevor Aherne had a good effort saved. Still time for a chance at the other end and Dripsey’s Tom Doyle saw his effort turned around the post by Mayfield goalkeeper Brian Ramsell.

The second half started in a similar pattern and it was Atkinson again who was pulling the strings. His earliest pass saw him pick out Kenny but his shot deflected off a defender and out for a corner.  The flag kick broke to Atkinson and he let rip from 35 yards but saw the shot go just over.

Mayfield, with winger Ray Atkins supplying good service, kept the pressure on and both Dave Kenny and Trevor Aherne had efforts saved by Moynihan.

Despite Mayfield’s dominance, Dripsey did come very close to scoring midway through. Then Paddy Sullivan got beyond his marker to fire a dangerous ball towards the unmarked Garry Murphy near the far post. But Murphy, with the goal at his mercy, could manage only the faintest of touches with his head and the cross continued on its way.

That man Atkinson again had a fine effort well saved, the build-up work done by Kenny, Atkins and Trevor Aherne. At the other end, Dripsey’s Brian Linehan wasted a chance to put his side ahead when his free header from inside the box flashed just inches wide.

The last decent chance of normal time fell to Mayfield’s Ray Atkins in the 89th minute. He picked up a header-on by Aherne but, unfortunately for him, he dragged his close range shot narrowly wide.

The game went into extra time and Dripsey were to go in front. The Mayfield defence, still short influential Mick Brosnan, was static as a free came in from the left. David O’Sullivan took advantage, worked his way past the advancing goalkeeper and shot into the empty net.

The lead was short lived. Less than a minute later, Kenny cracked an unstoppable 35-yard shot that smacked off the post before resting in the back of the net.

Mayfield Utd: Brian Ramsell, Sean Madden, Ger Forde, Paul Keegan (captain), John Warren, Brian Atkinson, Ray Atkins, Adrian Saville, Trevor Aherne, Dave Kenny and Ian Saville. Sub used: Simon O’Leary for Ian Saville (80th minute).
Dripsey Celtic: Ray Moynihan, John Hogan, Brian Linehan, Trevor Sullivan, Trevor O’Sullivan, Tom Doyle, Noel Sullivan, Damien Kelleher, Garry Murphy (captain), Paddy Sullivan, and Finbarr Sullivan. Subs used: David O’Sullivan for Trevor Sullivan (30th minute), Conor Twomey for Kelleher (70th) and Joe Murphy for Finbarr Sullivan (86th).
Referee: Sean Hegarty.

 O’Mahony and Mark Dooley each came up with a double as Examiner/Echo came a cropper at the hands of higher ranked Wilton Utd in the 2nd round of the Lucozade Sport Munster Junior Cup. Fergal Kelleher, Brian Kelly and Phil Haly also netted for the rampant winners, rebounding in some style after their FAI exit at the hands of Glasheen.

Leeside, who have a FAI Cup date in Donegal next weekend, showed their sharpness in patches as they defeated hosts Lakewood 3-0 to qualify for the 4th round. But manager John O’Sullivan wasn’t exactly satisfied: “Yeah, it was a great warm-up for next week but serious improvement is needed as this level of performance won't suffice in Donegal.”

Lakewood manager Noel Mullins was disappointed that his side didn’t take their chances in the first half. “It was 1-0 for a long time. But we went to sleep at times and were punished, particularly in the closing quarter when they scored twice. Ciaran O’Sullivan and keeper Donnacha Murphy, who pulled off some fine saves, were our best. Paul Courtney was transferred to hospital with a leg injury and we wish him a speedy recovery.”

Leeside went ahead in the 26th minute, Ger O’Mahony on target with a bullet header from a Mick Kenneally cross. Kenneally rammed home number two in the 65th minute and scored again in the 84th with a brilliant 25-yard header that looped over the outstanding keeper.

Maymount Celtic, whose FAI date in Dublin has been postponed until the New year, went behind on the Straight Road against Casement Celtic but turned on the style and a strong team display over the last hour earned them a 5-1 advance.

Casement’s 15th minute lead was wiped out when Gary Leahy scored in the 35th minute and he put Maymount in front five minutes into the second half. Niall Twomey, Steve McAuliffe and Damien Morey then added to the Maymount haul.

Kinsale will play Bellurgan from County Meath in the Statoil FAI Junior Cup next Sunday morning following Saturday’s laboured 1-0 win away to Bandon. “It was a scrappy game but at least we got the Turner’s Cross Linnane Cup final defeat out of our system,” said a relieved Kinsale spokesman Donal Foran. “The performance wasn't great but we are happy with the result. Derek McCarthy was perhaps our man of the match and he sent Dave Barry in for the winner. Defender Jeremy O’Donovan was another to show impressive form.”

A hat trick by James Murray was the highlight for former champions Central Rovers as they advanced to the 4th round of the Murphy’s Stout AOH Cup with a 4-0 win over higher ranked Afton Villa. Tommy Mullins also netted for the winners who welcomed back keeper Niall Meehan. Best for the victors, who took the title in 1983, were Andrew Maher, Meehan and the scorers.

Park Utd got back to winning ways by defeating hosts Greenwood 3-1. The Mitchelstown visitors took the lead in the 10th minute with a well taken goal by Steve Fox but stand-in keeper Simon Maher was beaten close to the break when Colin Looney equalised off a Lennie Crowe pass.

Park got on top in the end and Kieran Duggan put them in front with a fine header from a well taken Keith McGrath corner and they made it safe when Graham Brooks sent Aidan McNamara in to lob the third past the advancing keeper.

Maher, deputising for regular keeper Dave White, did well for Park as did Tony Graham, Eddie Murphy and McGrath. Greenwood’s best were Damien Crowe and Coleman McCarthy.

Grattan Utd, after a string of poor results, had a morale boosting 3-0 win over Leeside B. Alan O’Brien applied a great finish to put Grattan in front and man of the match Darren Galvin sealed it with an impressive double, including a terrific solo goal. Grattan defended very well here and Leeside’s tops were Steve Walsh and Barry Brady.

Rockville conceded an early goal in Kanturk but piled on the pressure to win 2-1. Eric Doolin soloed in for the equaliser and inter-league ace Jason McGillacuddy notched the winner. Rockville’s tops were Jonathan McCarthy and keeper Ger Condon.

Churchview Celtic, who play in the FAI Cup in Limerick next weekend, were much too strong for former champions Grangevale and Thomas Long, Mick Geaney and Niall McCarthy impressed in their 6-1 advance. Luke Mannix, Micky Barrett and Denver Cooke all converted penalties for the winners; Barrett also scored from play as did Geaney and Long.

Second division Knockraha, with Brian Cashman, Paudie O’Sullivan and Ray O’Connor in top form, played some lovely football and kept the game interesting for the duration but bowed out 2-0 to Linnane champs Greenmount Rangers. Two well taken goals in a five minute spell, late in the first half, by Kevin O’Neill and Conor Fitzgerald and two excellent saves by inform keeper Tommy Corcoran were the highlights for Greenmount.

Eamonn O’Sullivan converted a spotter and Ned Finn played well but their Park B were pipped 2-1 by Coachford A.

Goals from Dean Buckley (2nd minute) and Ray Kelly (35) and an outstanding display by keeper Ger Maher helped Leeds to a hard earned 2-1 win over Inter City Celtic in the 3rd round of the Murphy’s Stout AOH Cup. 

Chris Radley and Kevin O’Mahony (making a welcome return after injury) also impressed for the winners while Emmett Herlihy and Padraic Speight did well for Inter who had Ciaran Speight score a beauty off a Gordon Lynch pass.

“We must have had one eye on next Sunday’s FAI Cup game. Whatever it was, we weren’t at the races,” said Macroom keeper Shane O’Leary after his side suffered a 2-1 home loss to Watergrasshill Utd.

The visitors got off to a flier. They scored in the opening minutes, then had their keeper sent off, before scoring again, all in the first eleven minutes.

“Despite the man advantage, we were chasing it after that,” continued O'Leary, “and all we got was a second half score from Red Kirby. Red and Kevin Sheehan were about the only two to hit form.”

Goals from Willie McCann, Mikey O’Shea, Ronan Forde and Ken O'Keeffe (rocket) made it 4-1 for Corkbeg over Togher Celtic. O’Keeffe, Gary Walsh and Jason Ryan did well for The Beg. Daniel and Gavin Woods played well for Togher and Barry McGee got their goal.

Buttevant pulled away in the second half to defeat Alberts 5-1, their goals by Brendan Chawke, James Lenihan, Jonathan Hallihan, Denis Barrett and James O’Shea. Best for Alberts were Kevin O’Callaghan, Tom O'Neill and scorer Niall Murphy.

Brian Montgomery was the marksman for Villa Utd in their 1-0 advance against Togher. James Killackey, Mark O’Regan and John Betts stood out for the victors, Kevin Cummins, Damien Cambridge and Ray Kearney for Togher.

“It was hard work. Hillington played very well but we got there,” said Killumney’s Michael Sheehan following their 2-0 home win in which Diarmuid O’Kelly and Evan Mohally scored.

Glen Celtic continued their good run with a 3-2 victory over league rivals Glanworth. Brendan Long and Tomas Kelleher led the way for the Glen and their sharpshooters were Michael Shaw, Paul Monahan and Long.

Richmond got over a potential banana skin with a 3-1 win over Tower Street. The winners took the lead with an Adrian Conway header midway through the first half and Tower equalised from the spot midway through the second. A few tactical changes did the trick for Richmond as first David O'Neill and then Mick McAuliffe (both second half subs) scored in quick succession. Best for the winners were Kevin Keenan and Ben Ahern

Eric Marah netted a hat trick as he helped Everton advance in the Murphy’s Stout Corinthians Cup with an emphatic 5-1 win over Watergrasshill Utd B. Pat Fielding and Michael O’Halloran played great stuff for the winners and their other goals came via James Casey and an own goal (after a long ball in by Steve O’Sullivan).

Denis Murray’s Village Utd B saw off the challenge of visitors De Courcey Albion and reached the second round of the Murphy’s Stout Corinthians Cup on a 3-2 decision.

Declan Cronin and Francis McNamara netted to give Village a 2-0 half-time lead. De Courcey got one back before Alan Daly restored the two goal cushion for Village who played the most of the second half with ten men.

Ray O’Connell got the golden goal as Lee Rangers knocked out Fairview 1-0; Alan Murray and keeper Arthur Walker were in splendid form for the winners.

Millstreet started poorly against Ard-na-Laoi but won 1-0. Manager Aidan Downey: “The first half was the worst we've played in a long time but at 0-0 we knew we could do better. We were a totally different team in the second half and almost straight from the tip off Tadhg Collins and James Murphy missed glorious chances.”

Millstreet’s best move of the game came on 60 minutes when Eamon O'Keeffe, Tadhg and Anthony Downey combined to send Chris Cleary through to finish with an unstoppable shot. Midfielders Sean Vaughan and Anthony Downey gave Millstreet midfield control in the second half and were their best on the day.
Steve Noonan scored for Mallow Celtic but they lost 3-0 on penalties to Hibs B after a 1-1 tie. Brian Philpot, David O’Mahony and Keith Murphy were outstanding for the winners whose normal time goal came from Jamie Kelleher’s penalty.

Man of the match Micky O’Connell was desperately unlucky not to score for St John Bosco’s as they defeated homesters Castleview 2-1 in Murphy’s Stout Premier A. But goals for Didy and Aidan McSweeney earned Denis McSweeney’s Saints a morale boosting 2-1 win.

The View had taken advantage of an early Bosco's boob to strike the front, Jason Lane on target after a Kevin Garvey cross. Didy converted a late first half penalty, after a foul on himself, to equalise and, midway through the second half, Aidan McSweeney fired in a 30-yard rocket for the winner. Morgan Colbert was another Saint on song while John Sexton and Victor Mylod played well for the losers.

Bryan McNally’s 25-yard free kick special put Ballincollig on their way to a 3-0 win over visitors Pearse Celtic in AUL 1. It was about the only highlight of a dull first half.

Thomas Galvin brightened up the second when he worked his way past the Pearse defence before sliding the ball across for Cathal O’Callaghan to score from three yards and then Conor Radley’s quickly taken free kick sent the unrelated Gavin O’Callaghan in to lob the third past the advancing keeper.

Just one blot for Ballincollig: Terry Coomey sustained an eye injury. He is wished a speedy recovery.

Alfie Cooney Park is fast becoming something of a fortress for Rathcoole Rovers as their latest victims Blarney Street Athletic will testify. Cooney's men, aided by two great penalty save by keeper Fergie Walsh, scored a 5-2 win over the One A title chasers on Saturday.

The Street’s top player Eoin Cremin and Gary Coughlan got their goals and they led twice. Alan Guerin got the first equaliser with a well hit free and James O’Connor got the second, converting a penalty after a foul on Tadhgie Browne. Browne later scored himself, as did Gerald O’Connell and Gearoid Murphy.

Derby blues for St John Bosco’s B as they lost 2-0 to Ballintotis. Willie Crowley was twice unlucky not to score for the Saints when the game was scoreless. Eoin O’Sullivan got both for the winners, well served by Anthony Archer, Deccie Ryan and Diarmuid O’Sullivan.

Ballyphehane Celtic, so involved in cup competitions, had a league outing at last and crushed Greenmount Rangers 4-0. “We won comfortably and are very pleased. We were well on top and, at last, it is great to get points on the board and let the others know we’re after them,” declared manager Dave O’Mahony after the emphatic win.

But Dave wasn't so pleased at the end of the first quarter. Celtic had dominated but missed chance after chance and had nothing to show for it. All that changed in the 30th minute when Kevin Cotter scored and Dave Atkins doubled the advantage before the break. Trevor Dunlea and Deccie Marion excelled for the winners who added second half goals through Alan O’Mahony and Johnny Towler.

A Colm O’Leary volley put Togher Rovers on their way to a 5-2 win over Shandon Celtic. Andy Keegan made it 2-0 with a rare right leg effort and Nicky Kelleher stretched the lead to make it 3-0 at the break.

Sub Brian Linehan pulled one back but a Mark Condon double had Togher sailing though Gary Murphy did score a Shandon second. Kieran O’Sullivan, Timmy O’Keeffe and Ger Burns were the standout players in the Togher team.

Despite the best efforts of Daniel McSweeney and Brian Broderick and a goal from Michael Crowley, Innishannon lost 2-1 to Killeady.

Visitors City Wanderers kept their title propsects on the boil with a 3-2 win over Evergreen. An Ivan Gibbons penalty conversion just before the break gave Evergreen a foothold in a game that had seemed to have been put beyond them when a rampant Wanderers registered three earlier in the half. 

If indecisive and leaden-footed best described the home team's defending in this opening period, much improved performances from Cormac Harrington and Brian Maher meant that most of the second forty-five was played in the opposition half. An Ian Geary goal on the hour mark and unrelenting pressure from Evergreen meant the result was in doubt until the final whistle.

The father and son combination of Robert and Keith Linzell were prominent as Waterloo defeated Rylane Celtic 3-0. Brian Lenihan, Denis Desmond and veteran Robert excelled for the victors while the goals were supplied by Brian Cahill, Trevor Bowen and Keith.

Ballyvolane ended Dunbar Celtic’s unbeaten run and took all the points in their 2B encounter on a 2-1 scoreline. Tops for the victors were Colm Forde, keeper Shane Hurley and player-manager Derek Mellerick.

It was when a Mellerick shot came back off a post that skipper Adrian McDonnell put Ballyvolane ahead in the first half. In the 70th minute, Mellerick himself benefited from a rebound, this after a Steven O’Keeffe shot was parried, and Ballyvolane went two up.

Dunbar pulled one back from an 85th minute penalty, Keith O'Neill on target, and that meant a nervous closing few minutes for Mellerick’s men but they held on, Dunbar unlucky when an O'Neill effort came back off the bar. Kieran Malone, Ian “Chopper” Harris and Wayne O’Donovan all impressed for the losers.

Ex Knocknaheeny player Derek Lynch played a key role for Bohemians as they defeated his old club 5-2. His brother David also impressed as did Ger Stanton. Derek Daniels, John Cronin, David Cronin, Alan Daniels and Trevor Hallissey shared the Bohs scoring duties.

Ivan Sheehan and Michael Cliffe played well but their Bishopstown wasted a raft of chances in a 2-1 loss to Ballincollig. Eddie Chambers scored the 70th minute Bishopstown goal after a Dave Perrott free rebounded.

Liam Hewitt scored a consolation or Dunbar, beaten 3-1 by Kilreen Celtic. Darren Bickerstaffe, John Rock and Cross McCarthy impressed for the losers. Ger Crowley scored all three for the winners and their other aces were Pat Cunningham, Shane Foley and Denis Murphy.

James Forrest, Mick Delea and Pat O’Sullivan (pen.) scored for Harp in a 3-2 win against Knockavilla. Colm Fitzgerald and Tom Wilson were best of the winners.

David Wiseman’s double and five star inputs from John Paul Dunne and Robert Wiseman earned Killinardrish a 2-1 win over Los Zarcos in 3A. Cian O’Mahony netted for the losers and their best were Dave O’Sullivan and Shane Cremin.

Dermot Twomey and scorers Owen Crowley and Steve Mullane played well for Rathcoole but they were pipped 3-2 by hosts Hillington.

Killowen had Conor McCarthy and Brian Kane in good form but were pipped 1-0 by visitors Mallow Celtic who had Derek Winters to thank for a superb 70th minute strike. Peter Carroll and Mark Nagle did well for the winners.

Pa Enright, Hugh Nolan and Ian O’Brien led Doneraile to a 5-1 win over CFC Banteer. Enright (2), Nolan, Dave Ryall and Paul Roche netted for the winners.

Nice touch from Dillon’s Cross. They made Philip "Mossy" Kelly captain for the day in what was his farewell game for the club before he emigrates to Australia. And it paid off in a big way as Dillon’s, wishing to see Kelly off on a high note, outgunned local rivals Mayfield Utd 4-2 in AUL 3B.

The Cross also wanted to preserve their unbeaten home record in their local derby meetings with Mayfield and Tommy Triggs opened the home side's scoring after eight minutes when he shot low to the Mayfield keeper’s right. 

Chris Wall added a second before the break and the Cross looked in control. Dillon’s added a third through Daniel Stanton on the hour mark which seemed to spur on the visitors who added two in fifteen minutes with a Stephen Monagher goal for the home side in the middle. Greg Kelly, Stephen Walsh and James Cierans were outstanding for the winners.

All in the Dillon’s club wish Mossy and girlfriend Mariah all the best in Oz.

Steve Carroll and John Cronin got the goals as Passage completed back to back victories over neighbours Hibernians in Murphy’s Stout AUL 3B. John Quinn and Mick Ahern played best for the winners, Ted O’Sullivan and keeper Ronan Jordan for the Shanbally men.

Grattan Utd took three “badly needed points”, according to manager Martin Doocey, with their exciting 3-2 win over hosts Watergrasshill Utd. Paul Downey and man of the match Steve Godsil (2) got their goals.

Bryan O’Connor scored for Glenthorn Celtic but they lost 2-1 to Grangevale. Best for the losers were Noel Dorney, James Falvey and centrehalves Ger Cronin and Graham O’Connor.

Casement Celtic’s underage section will hold a fund-raising Table Quiz in the Friar’s Walk Tavern on Friday next December 10th; the fee is €20.00 for a table of four and all are welcome. 

The draws for the Munster Junior Cup (last 32) and Munster Youths Cup (last 16) will take place at the MFA meeting in Turner’s Cross tomorrow evening.

Important: All AUL afternoon cup games next Saturday and Sunday will kick off at the earlier time of 2.00pm.

The provisional game, Mayfield B v Kinsale, is off. Instead, Kinsale will host Bellurgan in the FAI Junior Cup in Kinsale on Sunday with a 10.45am kick off.
