Meanwhile, as a result of Limerick fielding an ineligible player in their MSC tie with Cobh, they have been disqualified from the competition. Ramblers will take Limerick's place in the semi-finals, where we will play Wilton United. The disciplinary committee of the Munster FA found that Limerick were guilty of fielding an ineligible player in Rodrigo Tosi at St Colman's Park.
However, Cobh's EA Sports Cup clash tonight against Avondale has been postponed, as a mark of respect to the late Derry defender Ryan McBride.
