Bray People - - SOCCER ROUND-UP -

CUP UP­SET fans will have been ask­ing for their money back af­ter the lat­est of­fer­ings from the Wick­low Cup.

Two top flight out­fits were in ac­tion over the week­end against lower divi­sion sides but both Premier Divi­sion clubs did the busi­ness to ad­vance to the next round of the Wick­low Cup.

2008 cham­pi­ons Shil­le­lagh United had Divi­sion 1's Avon­more FC to deal with on Sun­day and United did just about enough as they emerged 3-2 win­ners. Sea­mus Os­borne was on the score­sheet for the hosts, as were brothers Paddy and Stephen Byrne.

And Rich­mond Rovers could be Shil­le­lagh's op­po­nents in the next round af­ter the Bray side also sealed their place in the next round this week.

New­town United B trav­elled to Bal­ly­waltrim on Fri­day night but couldn't up­set the form­book as strikes from Ben Mc­Nulty and David Hughes saw the Mag­pies elim­i­nated from the competition.
