Old County are back basking in the joys of the cup just over a week after suffering the ultimate cup upset.

The FAI Junior Cup surprise package bounced back from their controversial quarter-final defeat to Limerick top-flight side Ballynanty Rovers in the national contest with a one-sided Noel Ryan win on Saturday.

The Crumlin side hit fellow  Major Saturday 1 participants St Patricks CY for six at Brickfields.

Regular goal-getter Callum Keane scored a brace, while Troy Steadman, Jay Farrell, Scot Thompson and Kristian ‘Git’ Bowden also found the back of the net in a one-sided first-round win.

St Mochta’s stopped the Bus from reaching round 2 of the Leinster Senior League Saturday competition with a win in Porterstown on the same day.

Joey McDonald, Jonathan Lyons, Stephen McCrossen and Graham Hughes all got on the scoresheet in a 4-1 win over Coldcut side Dublin Bus.

Templeogue United came from a goal down to snatch a place in the second round right at the death. The young Major 1A side trailed to a first-half Killester Donnycarney penalty but leveled via Deering before McMillian won it for them with a close range finish in the last minute of extra time.

Leon O’Brien was the hero for St Francis as they put Swords Celtic to the sword in the same competition on Friday night.

O’Brien hit four at John Hyland Park to help the Saints stroll into the second round, Dylan Stack accounted for the other home goal in a 5-1 win.

Railway Union, St Kevin’s Boys, Bluebell United, Collinstown, Bangor Celtic and Crumlin United also progressed to the second round thanks to wins over TEK United, Finglas United, Liffey Wanderers, Lexilip United and Verona respectively.
