Eamonn Deacy Park.

These are encouraging times for Salthill Devon, who blasted out another warning about the considerable potential in Victor Collins' squad with a convincing 6-0 triumph over St Bernard's at Drom on Sunday morning.

While the Abbeyknockmoy based outfit might be short a few important players, they still had enjoyed a quietly effective start to the campaign.

Salthill, though, prompted by Timmy Molloy controlled the contest to remain perched on the top of the table.

Former Galway United midfielder Molloy brought his seasonal account to five with a hat-trick, while Mikey Fox scored two, and Darren Creaven also netted.

Mervue, beaten by Devon on the opening weekend, made it three wins on the spin away to Colemanstown.

The prolific Enda Curran now has seven goals in four matches, while Jake Begley, Gary Bailey, Aaron Molloy, and the impressive Luke Deacy contributed on the scoresheet for Noel McDonnell's charges.

Champions Athenry shrugged off Loughrea's spirited challenge with Peter Finnerty and Adam Duffy scoring for Seamie Crowe's team.

Corrib Celtic enjoyed a splendid 4-2 success over Maree-Oranmore with Ciaran Nugent 2, Shane Concannon, and Kevin Moylan supplying goals. Shane Cox and Cathal O'Neill replied for a youthful Maree-Oranmore.

On Saturday at Bohermore town rivals Hibernians and West United divided the spoils in front of a decent crowd.

Hibs' Jay McPhilbin and West's Ronan Caldwell traded goals in a hard fought and competitive match.

Tuam Celtic overcame Corrib Rangers with Graham Fallon and Colin Quinn netting for the locals. Geoffrey Power, who remains a very capable performer at this level, was on target for Rangers.

The FAI Junior Cup takes centre stage this weekend with several attractive matches on the agenda.

On Saturday Hibs face a tricky assignment away to Colga, while West United B host a talented Mervue at South Park.

The following morning Knocknacarra face Corrib Rangers, while East United will be intent on causing a surprise away to Loughrea.

West United and Tuam Celtic is an all premier division encounter at the Swamp, while Maree/Oranmore clash with Moyne Villa.
