It’s that time of week again, and we’re just putting the finishing touches to this week’s Echo Sport after what has been a bumper seven days for sport. We were at the United Churches Football League Shield Finals on Monday, and our featured games include Kingswood Castle v Orchard Celtic from Ballyfermot, and Lucan’s Arthur Griffith Park v Sandyford United. Among the other teams taking part were Stedfast United, Cloncastle United, Walkinstown Athletic and Belgrave AFC, and we have reports and pictures from all six games.
Elsewhere, Drimnagh Celtic took on Tallaght’s Old Court Celtic in the final of the LFL’s Watkins Cup, and there is a full report and pictures from what was a tense and exciting game in the Transport Club. Shamrock Rovers travel down to Inchicore for the ‘Luas Derby’ on Friday night, and we have all you need to know ahead of what is sure to be an important clash between the two Dublin clubs.
