We've got a few quid left over in the kitty after all the entry fees for the season have been collected. As a result, and in addition to our league competitions, I'll be running an FAI Cup competitions with €50 going to the winner.

It'll be a knock-out competition based on how many points you pick up on the cup weekends from your normal league predictions and goalscorer points. In order to take part, you just need to submit your predictions as normal - no further action is required. You'll be drawn against another player from our league and whoever picks up the most points over the relevant weekend will progress to the next round.

Points picked up from your normal weekly predictions and your goalscorer bonus points will make up your total. Joker scoreline points and the sack race bonus points won't count.

The draw for the first round of the FAI Cup has been completed with round one matches listed below. The first round will consist of 20 matches with twelve people getting byes to the second round. Then we'll progress from 32 to 16 to 8 etc. Look out for the first round results after the matches on the weekend of April 14th, 15th and 16th.
