Five MDL clubs are left standing in O'Neills LJC

The draw for the last thirty two of the Leinster Junior Cup was made last week, and after an initial entry of twelve teams, a maximum of five teams from the MDL can still make it to this stage of the competition.

In previous rounds there have been three instances where MDL sides have been drawn against each other thus curtailing the chances of greater representation as the comptetion progresses.

Round five also throws up the possibility of Clones Town hosting Duleek. There are still a number of outsanding ties from earlier rounds a scenario that must be proven an a logistical nightmare for the very diligent LFA Provincial administrator Peter Doyle.

The draws where applicable for MDL teams are Clones Town or Greenpark F C or Liffey Valley Rangers v Duleek F C or Sandyhill Celtic; Shamrock Celtic or Rialto v Bellurgan United; Belgrove F C or Richmond Rovers v Woodview Celtic or Kilbarrack Utd or St Pauls Artane; Rock Celtic v Wexford Celtic or Valley Park Utd
