Home cup games this Sunday for Waterford sides

It's a big weekend of cup soccer for Waterford clubs with two teams in action on Sunday.

The FAI Junior Cup rolls into the county with two games getting underway at 2 o clock.

Last season it was Villa who claimed the top honours, but with the Connors Park outfit already gone from the competition, is now down to the remaining Waterford sides if the cup is to stay in the county.

Hibs welcome Castlebar Celtic to Ozier Park for their fifth-round tie, while Tramore have a date with Gorey Rangers in Graun Park.

The seaside club advanced in the Munster Junior Cup last weekend, beating Fairview Rangers 2-1 with both goals coming through Sam Sheppard. While they may be in the lower half of the Premier League table where they sit seventh, Leigh Quilty's team have proved to be a challenge for any side in these cup competitions.
