Siger­son Cup Round 1

UL v CIT, UL (J Gil­martin, Sligo), 2pm.

UL are bid­ding to reach a third con­sec­u­tive semi-fi­nal and showed well in the league where they went all the way to the de­cider. Clare pair, Cian O’dea and Kee­lan Sex­ton, along with Lim­er­ick’s Gearoid He­garty, are key play­ers for the Lim­er­ick Univer­sity. Cil­lian O’han­lon and Kevin Fa­hey, both of whom were in­tro­duced as subs dur­ing the Cork-tip­per­ary league game on Satur­day, are among the more prom­i­nent mem­bers of the Cork IT side. Ver­dict: UL

QUB V IT Tralee (N Mckenna, Mon­aghan), The Dub, 2pm. Fresh from his Kerry de­but, David Clif­ford should make his Siger­son de­but this af­ter­noon. Kerry team­mate Gavin Crow­ley is also likely to fea­ture. They’ll be up against it, Queens boast­ing a fine spread of tal­ent from across the north­ern prov­ince. Ver­dict: QUB

Garda Col­lege v UCC, Garda Col­lege (J Hickey, Car­low), 2.30pm.

The Garda Col­lege should en­ter this con­test in buoyant form af­ter putting seven goals past Athlone IT. Chief among their con­trib­u­tors last week was full-for­ward Jonathan Ryan who fin­ished with 2-2. League cham­pi­ons UCC are with- out the in­jured Sean Powter. They can still call on Stephen Sher­lock and Kerry trio Tom O’sul­li­van, Adrian Spil­lane and Sean O’shea.

Ver­dict: UCC

Fitzgib­bon Cup Group A UCD v CIT, Belfield (J Mcgrath, West­meath), 7.30pm.

This is a three-team group, with first and sec­ond ad­vanc­ing to the quar­ter-fi­nals. A CIT win of be­tween one and seven points would hand the win­ning of the group to UCC, with UCD sec­ond; a CIT win of eight or more points would see them qual­ify at UCD’S ex­pense. Not clear if Cork’s Michael Ca­ha­lane or Lim­er­ick’s Rob­bie Han­ley - nei­ther fea­tured for CIT in their de­feat to UCC be­cause of in­jury - will start. Ver­dict: UCD
