Kilkenny Soccer: This week's fixtures from the Kilkenny & District League

There is action on and off the pitch as the Kilkenny & District League's new season picks up pace

The League will have a Council meeting on Thursday evening in the Springhill Court Hotel, the first of the new campaign, for council members from schoolboys and junior clubs.

The second round of the Maher Shield starts on Sunday, with seven of the last 16 ties down for decision. After a bye in round one title holders Evergreen A begin the defence of the Shield with a city derby against Newpark. The last of the second round games will be played on Tuesday, when Freebooters entertain Stoneyford United.
