Men's Round-up

With virtually all the domestic issues done and dusted, here’s a rundown of who won what this season:

Division 2: Railway Union won the title with a bit to spare ahead of Suttonians. The key results for both sides came against Trinity with Railway recovering from 3-0 down to snatch a draw while Suttonians seemed to be closing the gap until they slipped up 4-3 to the students to all but end their title challenge.

Neville Davin Cup: Suttonians got a modicum of compensation for missing out on promotion, winning three titles. They beat Skerries 3-2 on golden goal, Mukhtar Ahmed scoring twice in normal time before David Quinn netted a winner.

Division 3 and Railway Cup: Pembroke II completed another triple this year, though they only sealed the title on the last day of the season with a 4-1 win over Corinthian. Another impressive season, they did lose for the first time over 50 matches, though. They won the Railway Cup final 6-0 after overcoming TRR on strokes.

Division 4: Glenanne retained their IIIs title, comfortably holding off the attentions of Pembroke who fell away in the second half of the season and Corinthian who had a strong finish.

Division 5: While Rovers III struggled all season, their IVs were outstanding, dropping just four points all year.

Intermediate Cup: PSBPP II claimed the cup, following a run that saw them beat TRR, Avoca, Weston and YMCA 1-0 in the final.

Division 6: Suttonians II claimed div 6 via a playoff after finishing the regular season level on 39 points with North Kildare, claiming the decider 2-1.

Division 7: Monkstown V won this league at a canter, lying almost 20 points clear of the field, winning the title in early March and suffering only one defeat when the league was already won.

Junior Cup: Clontarf III took the title 2-0 beating YMCA V after a nail-biting semi-final where they overcame UCD on penalty strokes.

Division 8: Mullingar II bagged the division, finishing well clear of Bray III, making good use of their home turf, winning seven out of seven and conceding just three times.

Division 9: Fingal IV beat the challenge of Suttonians III to gain promotion up to division 8, dropping just two points all season.

Minor Cup: Kilkenny III added to their great record in the Minor Cup as their scratch team regularly produces the goods. They denied Fingal the double with a 6-1 win in the final.

Galtrim Cup: Monkstown retained the Galtrim Cup with a 2-1 win over Glenanne with Liam Walsh scoring in his last game for the club before moving to the US.

Walters Cup: Suttonians II/III mixture picked up the Walters Cup with a 3-2 win over Pembroke. Shane Diveney scored twice and Paddy Brazel got the other.
