This goal from Joey Byrne (9) after just 10 minutes set VEC on the way against Elm Mount FC in Parnells Astro. The home team pulled one back after 27 minutes leaving this 2nd round LFA Junior Cup match all square at half-time. Then with VEC suffering two unfortunate injuries shortly after, Elm Mount scored two quick goals in the 55th and 60th minutes, before Pat Meghen’s excellent penalty three minutes later made it 3-2.

Despite constant pressure from there on, VEC failed to find the net, as the opposition closed out the game to advance to the next round.
