Monkstown given walkover while Pegasus to play in Lille

Pembroke's appeal to have their first round match with Monkstown refixed was turned down by the Leinster Branch Management Committee and as such Monkstown advance to the second round of the Neville Cup.

They are now due to play Glenanne in the second round (1.15pm, Rathdown). Elsewhere, Suttonians will host Railway Union (1pm Sutton Park), UCD play YMCA (1pm, Belfield) and Three Rock face Fingal (2pm, Grange Road) in the quarter-finals.

The women's Leinster Senior Cup also tips off this weekend with the highlight definitely the meeting of last season's Club Championships finalists Loreto and Hermes (2pm, St Andrews). The other matches are Bray against Railway 2nds (1.30 pm , Loreto Bray), Pembroke v Glenanne (2pm, Serpentine Ave) and Skerries v Corinthian (11.30am)

Elsewhere, Pegasus have been drawn to play in Lille in the EuroHockey Cup Winner's Trophy from April 10 to 13. They have been drawn in a group with Penarth from Wales and Victorya Smolevichi from Belarus in the B division.

Meanwhile, Hermes have been drawn in a group with Belarus' Ritm Grodno, Scotland's Glasgow Western and Switzerland's Rotweiss Wettingen. The venue for the Club Champions Trophy has yet to be announced.
