The draws for the Leinster Schools Senior & Junior Cups were made this evening in the offices of new sponsors, Beauchamp Solicitors.

A large attendance saw Leinster players Ian Madigan, Isaac Boss and Martin Moore draw the names from the hats for this years competitions. After the draws for the Fr Godfrey & Vinnie Murray cups were made, it was time to find out which teams this years JCT & SCT would face.

After the success of last season’s Juniors, the 2013/14 squad were eager to find out this year’s first opposition. They were drawn out in the second fixture and will face Gonzaga College. A tough encountered is ensured and the JCT will be fully prepared ahead of this testing fixture.

Onto the Senior draw and having been drawn against perceived favourites in recent years, Belvedere were keen to avoid this type of opposition again at the first hurdle. They came out in the third fixture against Wesley College. They will be looking to build on their good momentum attained so far this season but will take nothing for granted.

It it is fair to say each squad will be reasonably happy with their draw but this is where the hard work really starts in preparation for the business end of the season.

Best of luck to both squads!
