Limerick target 'magnificent seven'

HIGH-FLYING Limerick FC look to continue their dominant start to the SSE Airtricity League First Division season when hosting Cabinteely at the Markets Field on Saturday, 6.30pm.

Table toppers Limerick FC, who started their season with six straight league wins, sit eight points clear of both UCD and Cobh Ramblers.

To date, Martin Russell’s side has scored 28 goals in the First Division and conceded just five. The Blues are the only side with a positive goal difference.

Limerick scored a hard-earned 3-0 victory over Drogheda Utd at United Park on Friday night.

Goals from Paul O’Conor in the opening half and second half strikes from John O’Flynn and Lee J-Lynch helped Limerick maintain their excellent start. 

Cabinteely are seventh in the table after picking up just four points to date.
