Soccer: Weather plays havoc with Kilkenny fixtures

Soccer: Weather plays havoc with Kilkenny fixtures

The weather played havoc with the Kilkenny & District League's weekend fixtures, with many of Sunday's junior games losing out in a battle with the elements.

The opening round of the McCalmont Cup was hit hardest by driving wind and heavy rain, with just six of the 15 scheduled games going ahead.

Champions Evergreen A were one of the sides who played, booking their place in round two with a 4-2 win over Clover United A. There were victories also for Freebooters A, Thomastown United A, Ormonde Villa, Bridge United A and River Rangers.

The remaining first round games will be played this weekend.
