ACTION in the junior soccer season in Clare has resumed after the Christmas break and the main focus this weekend will be on the Munster youths and junior cup in which five Clare clubs will be seeking to progress.

On this Saturday the youths cup sees two Clare clubs away to Cork opposition. Bridge United travel to play Blarney United while Tulla United will be away to Watergrasshill.

Three Clare clubs will be hoping to progress in the Munster junior cup on Sunday and all will enjoy home advantage.

Newmarket Celtic will entertain Killavilla from Roscrea, Bridge United will welcome Avondale from Cork while Shannon town will also welcome Cork opposition in Cork Beg and all games will kick off at 2p.m. and must conclude on the day so extra time and penalties will apply, if needed.
