The draws for the OCC's top cup competitions can be heard on NEAR 90.3fm this Saturday at 10.30am.
The teams in each cup are as follows
Lewis Hohn Williams Senior Cup - Clontarf 1, Cork County 1, Leinster 1, Malahide 1, Merrion 1, North County 1, Old Belvedere 1, Pembroke 1, Phoenix 1, Railway Union 1, Rush 1, Terenure 1, The Hills 1, YMCA 1
NEAR 90.3fm Alan Murray Cup - Clontarf 1, Leinster 1, Malahide 1, Merrion 1, North County 1, Pembroke 1, Phoenix 1, Railway Union 1, Rush 1, Terenure 1, The Hills 1, YMCA 1
Senior 2 Cup - Balbriggan 1, Civil Service 1, Clontarf 2, Laois 1, Leinster 2, Malahide 2, Merrion 2, Mullingar 1, North County 2, North Kildare 1, Pembroke 2, Phoenix 2, Railway Union 2, The Hills 2, Oakhill 1, YMCA 2
There are several differences in the entrants to previous years.
LHW Senior Cup - The OCC felt that having 2nd XI's playing in the same competition, and possibly against their own 1st XI, removed some of the integrity from the cup. Therefore Leinster 2 will play in the Senior 2 Cup. With Dublin University not entering the Senior Cup, Cork County were invited to the competition.
Senior 2 Cup - As detailed above, the competition will be for all teams in Divisions 3 and 4 with two exceptions. Leinster 2, and Pembroke 3 who will play in the Middle Cup
NEAR 90.3fm Alan Murray Cup - The competition was planned as a 12 team tournament, partly to rid the competition of the dead matches that were experienced in 2011, and partly due to 12 suitable teams being in Division 1 and 2. The late change to the division that Old Belvedere are playing in, was too late to accomodate them in a 12 team tournament. Hence they will play in the Tillain Cup in 2012
