Mixed fortunes for Leinster sides as UCD, Pembroke, Trinity and Railway beat Ulster-based opposition in the ESB Irish Senior Cup but Genesis, Corinthian and Three Rock Ladies bowed out. Trinity and Pembroke were both drawn at home against Munster sides (Ashton and Bandon respectively) while Railway and UCD will again travel up North.
In the men’s section, Suttonians continued their good start to the season, beating Weston 4-1 in an all Leinster tie, Richie Wormold scoring twice with David Quinn and Nasir Munir also on the score sheet. They have been rewarded with a trip to Navan in round 2. North Down beat Newry in the other first round tie.
