    Winning the LSC was a springboard for Shels recently,
    Was the LSC the last cup that Shamrock Rovers won back in 2013?

    I suspect your not interested in debating the LSC but my point was that for smaller clubs (cabo) or big clubs who are on a downer (Shels) the LSC is a worthwhile cup that can invigorate fans either new ones or older ones who have fallen away in the lean years.

    The lack of respect shown to the cup by the bigger clubs is terrible and some of the ideas suggested by other posters here should be taken up.
    Play it in Jan/Feb as a preseason tournament at the point when the LOI clubs get involved is the best suggestion i've seen
    In pre season even the bigger clubs routinely play matches against non league clubs so make it the LSC and give the comp a chance

    Who cares how long it's been going around for? It's an appallingly-run tournament treated with disdain even by the LFA going by their organisation and promotion of it, and scrapping it is quite probably the best thing for it.

    It was gone from 2000 to 2010 and nobody missed it.

    I would suggest to you that the lack of respect is reciprocal. The attitude by clubs large and small directly correlates to the appalling scheduling, promotion and antipathy shown by the organisers.

    It is hard to find too many positives about this competition, except that the trophy is a beauty

    It certainly is and a shame that it's wasted. It is an important enough piece that it should be in a showcase in the Aviva or the like and not rattling around some dusty old cupboard. It's worth more than all the other trophies in senior football in this country combined and it will go missing altogether one day - should be acquired to be presented as the League Cup or Presidents Trophy as it is a rarity for to be the same actual cup from first presented and in such good nick after 127 years. Outside of the UK it could be the oldest trophy in football still presented in the world!? Including the UK its 4th or 5th. But that's just the trophy as the competition is a mess. Nice to add to a seasons collection, handy to get youth and reserve players game time if ye progress in it. Wouldnt have said no to winning it mid 2000s!! Preseason, U19/reserve competition, promote to non-league clubs as a day out v senior clubs with non-league clubs keeping the gate...how hard can it be to schedule football matches sensibly??

    A scintillating game in Stradbrook that had it all and was nip and tuck right until the end. It was played in fantastic conditions.
    The complete opposite of the above is true, anyway we won one nil and roll on to glory.

    Does anyone know what the quarter final brackets actually are? We know UCD v Crumlin still has to be played from the 4th round. There should be brackets for 3 other ties involving - UCD/Crumlin, Athlone, Bohs, Killester Utd, Sheriff YC and North End United.

    UCD 4-1 Crumlin tonight. Away to Athlone on Monday.

    We were talking this evening about what rules are actually in play in this competition given it's technically over three different seasons - 2018/19 and 2019/20 for Crumlin, and 2019 for UCD in this case. New UEFA rule changes come in at the start of the next season - so a rule change that came in the Premier League in August won't appear in the LoI until March, and vice versa. But the LSC is a complete law unto itself of course...

    Athlone 3-2 UCD tonight

    As someone on Twitter pointed out, this means that Athlone have defeated Premier Division sides in successive rounds in this year's competition - the first the week before their league season started, and the second the week after it ended.

    Where that leaves them now with regards their semi I have no idea.

    When it eventually comes to Vinny Perth writing his memoirs, he may well reflect on the Leinster Senior Cup as being 'the one that got away'

    The fact that we used first-teamers or that we lost with first-teamers?

    It was pretty much a first-team XI (injuries permitting). We had no game at the weekend, so I think the plan was to use the Crumlin game and this one to keep things ticking along ahead of Friday.

    I thought there would be no first teamers in action ahead of Friday, honestly would not look at result.. although now that I think of it, probably a headache for Athlone to go through, who knows when the next round will be. Do they have to keep paying wages? Tis chaos!

    Crazy competition, needs a bit of rebranding.
