PIKE AND SAINTS TO MEET IN MUNSTER JUNIOR CUP FINAL

PIKE Rovers and St Michael’s FC will meet in the Munster Junior Cup final after both sides advanced from their last four matches this weekend.St Michael’s beat Geraldines 1-0 at the Markets Field this afternoon to deny the Limerick District League an all Shannonside final.

Former Regional United favourite Ollie O’Driscoll struck the only goal of the game at the home of Limerick FC.The Saints will meet Pike in the final in Limerick on May 18 in a repeat of the 2017 decider which Pike won 2-1.

Pike set up the Shannonside versus Tipp showdown following a 3-2 penalty shoot out with over Clare’s Newmarket Celtic on Saturday.

Goalkeeper Gary Neville was once again the shoot out hero for the Hoops with two crucial saves – with the away side hitting the bar with another penalty. 

Jonathan Grant cancelled out an early opener for Celtic with the game finishing 1-1 after normal and extra time.

Pike, who beat Janesboro on penalties in last season’s Munster Junior Cup final at Jackman Park, will be aiming for three on the bounce next month. 



Meanwhile, it’s as you were at the top of the Limerick Premier League with Pike and Ballynanty Rovers on 46 points, four points adrift of defending champions Janesboro but with two games in hand each.None of the top four sides were in Premier League action this weekend.B
