Elsewhere there was a derby between Bonagee Utd. And Letterkenny Rovers and in Ramelton, Swilly Rovers hosted Kildrum Tigers. In Letterkenny, Trevor Scanlon’s Rovers got the better of rivals Bonagee on a score of 6-2 while Jason Gibson’s Swilly dispatched Kildrum Tigers.

Cracking Tie in DrumkeenDrumkeen Utd. 4Cockhill Celtic 5 (AET)In a cracking cup tie played in very wet and windy conditions the home side Drumkeen were missing a few players due to injury. Nevertheless, Drumkeen started off brightly and after 5 minutes hit the post. The home team continued to put pressure on the Cockhill defence and after a few missed chances by both teams Drumkeen scored took the lead through Conor Carlin. Cockhill piled on the pressure and drew level from an own goal before half time to send the sides in level at the break. 1 – 1 half time. In the second half Drumkeen went into a two goal lead with goals from Richie Moore and Packie Mailey. Again Cockhill never gave up and Garbhain Friel showed his strength when he went in on a high ball on top of McCauley and scored, Cockhill scored again after a corner to go 4 -3 in front. The home team came back again the Chris Kyle scored to send the game into extra time. With the game looking destined for penalties at 4-4 in the last minute of extra time, Cockhill scored the winner.Drumkeen would like to wish Cockhill good luck in the next round and perhaps go on and win it, you have the squad of players to do it.Letterkenny Ease ThroughBonagee Utd. 2Letterkenny Rovers 6 In a game in which the score line would suggest a thrilling encounter, this match was far from an enthralling one and it is Letterkenny who came out on top in this local derby. Played on a very wet and blustery day, it was Bonagee who started brightly and took the lead in the 14th minute. Graham Cullen’s ball into the channel reached Mark Harkin, and the latter finished between keeper and post. Letterkenny equalised on the half hour mark through Anthony Gorman. The former Finn Harps man unleashed a shot from 25 yards that flew into the top corner of the net, much to the delight of the visiting bench. They took the lead with only a couple of minutes left of the first forty five, this time John Doherty rose highest in the box to head home a Jamie Doherty corner. With the second half only five minutes old, Johnny Minnock extended their lead when his free kick into the danger area evaded everyone and nestled in the back of the net. Bonagee pulled a goal back in the 61st minute, this time it was Greg Magee to score a spectacular effort from twenty five yards out. Jason Doherty regained Letterkenny’s two goal advantage in the 72nd minute when his effort was somehow pushed into the net by the Bonagee goalkeeper. Doherty turned provider three minutes later, when he controlled Minnock’s cross field ball expertly and squared for Darren McElwaine to volley home from ten yards. With the players tiring, Letterkenny completed the scoring in the 88th minute, this time Jamie Doherty scored from six yards. Team performances. Ref Packie Coll. Swilly Tame TigersSwilly Rovers 2Kildrum Tigers 0 An entertaining match played in good conditions considering the early morning rain as the Rovers came out on top. Very keenly contested game and both teams had early chances but it was the home team that took the lead midway through the half, a great free kick delivery from out wide and Dylan Hegarty towered above everyone at the back to head past the helpless Kildrum keeper. Swilly would go in at the break one up.The second half started with Kildrum much the stronger and pushing hard for an equaliser. They had numerous chances but a mix of great defending and fine goalkeeping kept them out. They pressure did tell however late as they were awarded a penalty. Darren Cassidy stepped up but Wade was to come up trumps with a fine save down to his right. Almost immediately Swilly went up the pitch and made it two, substitute Bobby Hanlon finished expertly with his left foot as it fell to him from six yards. They now advance to the national stages of the draw were they would hope for a home draw to ignite the great cup tradition from years gone by.

Here’s what I think Jabran Khan has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 One FTSE 250 stock I like and that is very cheap right now is Vivo Energy (LSE:VVO). VVO is a British company that distributes and markets Shell and Engen branded fuels and lubricants to retail and commercial customers in Africa. It maintains subsidiaries and operations in 23 countries across the continent. Cheap FTSE 250 stockAt the beginning of the year, shares in VVO could be purchased for 125p. When the market crashed, its share price tumbled to a low of 64.5p. As I write this, it has recovered slowly and shares are currently trading at only 75p per share. At its current price point I consider VVO to be quite cheap.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…VVO joined the FTSE 250 in April 2018 and was trading at a high of 172.5p per share. An argument could be made that its reduction in price is not a positive sign. My response to that would be that the recent economic downturn has affected nearly all companies and industries in a negative way. I would not base any investment opinion on share price alone, especially not right now due to the pandemic and crash.PerformanceReviewing Vivo’s longer-term performance across the past three years makes for positive reading. It has seen a year-on-year increase in revenue and gross profit, which is definitely a positive indicator for any investor.VVO today released its Q3 trading update and I feel there are some positive takeaways from it. As expected, Q2 was difficult for many firms in the FTSE 250.VVO recorded a gross cash profit of $187m which is impressive despite the recent restrictions it has faced due to the pandemic. This is only a 1% decrease compared to the same period last year when there were no restrictions or pandemic. Q3 volumes of 2,492m litres was a significant improvement from Q2 although it remained 7% lower year-on-year. VVO’s retail segment saw lower volumes but an improvement compared to the previous quarter. In addition to this, a number of countries it serves returned to year-on-year growth during Q3. Its commercial segment volumes were lower and impacted by a lack of international travel and movement.VVO initially suspended its 2019 dividend of 2.7 cents per share when the economic downturn first occurred. In its update today it has confirmed that it will now pay that dividend in December to shareholders who are on the register by 20 November 2020. This is a positive move as it shows the firm is confident in its financial flexibility and can reinstate its dividend.My verdictOverall, I really like Vivo Energy but there is an element of risk. There are positives, in that longer-term performance has been impressive. Its Q3 trading update shows that despite the market uncertainty, it is getting closer to pre-crash levels of performance and volumes. Due to the ongoing economic uncertainty and potential further restrictions, we could see another repeat of Q2 performance. This is where I believe the risk lies for VVO. At this moment, I would be willing to buy some shares in VVO. I wouldn’t be investing lots of cash but feel it could be worth buying some shares and keeping an eye on developments across the FTSE 250.
