Muirhevnamor breezed into the quarter-finals of the MDL Tully Bookmakers Cup as they easily disposed of Trim Town on Friday night.

Ryan Dillon opened the scoring on 15 minutes when he finished off after his initial header had struck an upright.

The home side then made it 2-0 when Gary Clarke skipped past two despairing tackles before firing home at the near post.

On the hour mark Sean Dixon’s side put the game to bed when a move, starting with goalkeeper Michael Cooney and involving every player ended with Clarke calmly rounding the Trim goalkeeper and rolling the ball home.

Philip Duffy had the final say on an all round excellent team performance with the fourth goal when his namesake Ryan Duffy - with an excellent touch - set-up Philip to deceive both the centre back and goalkeeper before finishing in style.

Muirhevnamor: Michael Cooney, Ryan Duffy, Brian Begley, Adrian Rafferty, Shane O’Callaghan, Philip Duffy, Thomas McShane (Shane O’Brien), Sean Conlon, Gary Clarke, Ryan Dillon, Brendan Hughes (Anto Reilly).
