Cabinteely midfielder Jack Watson returned to haunt his old club as he scored from the centre circle and set the home side on their way to a 2-0 win over UCD.

Friday night rightly led us to marvel at this near-100-yard injury-time finish from Cork City's Kieran Sadlier at Richmond Park.

Watson's goal wasn't quite so impressive in terms of the length of the strike but it completed a remarkable night for spectacular strikes in the League of Ireland.

The Students' deputy goalkeeper Carl Williams came a long way out of his box to make a clearance, which fell straight to Watson, and the Carlow man took full advantage.

Another mix-up in defence involving Williams – in in place of the injured Conor Kearns – allowed Luke Clucas to double the lead shortly after with his first goal for the club.
