It was a mixed weekend in the SFAI Skechers National Cup for Douglas Hall as four of their teams took to the field, all with hopes of making it to the quarter-finals.

Their U16’s faced a tough test against Cherry Orchard in Moneygourney, and it was Alan O’Hare’s goal for the homeside that was the difference.

Daniel Cunningham tested his range early on for the eventual winners, while O’Hare was always a threat with his pace.

However, the Orchard settled midway through the opening half and put some good passages of play together.
