Longford Town progressed to the second round of the EA Sports Cup after a narrow victory over Cockhill Celtic tonight. 

Town were 1-0 winners over the Donegal outfit, with Adam Evans scoring the goal after just five minutes. 

Cobh Ramblers v Limerick was postponed due to an unplayable pitch at St Colman's Park. 

Galway United, Bray Wanderers, Cabinteely and Shelbourne were the victors last night ahead of the next stage.
