Byrne Scores 5 as VEC Progress in Cup

Hapless Newlane FC 2nds from Division 3C found VEC’s all-time top goal-scorer Joey Byrne in top form as he scored 5 goals as VEC coasted into the 3rd round of the Challenge Cup in Collinstown Park. The final outcome was 7-0 with Seamus Staunton and James McGauran also getting on the scoresheet.

The first four goals were scored by Joey in a 16-minute spell in the first half.  He could easily have added to his tally of 233 goals for VEC, save for tremendous goalkeeping (excuse the pun) from the home team no. 1 Stephen Barry.
