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 a League Cup and an FAI Cup competition with €50 going to the winner of each.

They'll be knock-out competitions based on how many points you pick up on the cup weekends from your normal league predictions and goalscorer points. 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 and goalkeeper 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 has been completed with round one matches listed below. The first round will consist of 17 matches with fifteen 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 March 6th and 7th.
