Glengoole United produced the shock of the day as previously unbeaten Clonmel Town exited this year’s Munster Junior Cup via a penalty shootout.

The game itself was a tight affair, with very few chances being made by either team. Both defences made short work of what few did arrive, and kept the game scoreless right through normal time and then the extra period.

So it all went down to how well each team could manage from twelve yards out and in this, it was the home team that kept their nerve, sending shockwaves through not only Tipperary football, but wider across the whole province of Munster as one of the favourites for this year’s competition made an early and ignominious exit.
