Kildare booked a semi-final date with Derry after getting the better of Wicklow in Joule Park on Saturday.

Kildare recovered from Wicklow's lightning start where the home side led by 1-3 to no score after midfielder Ronan Keddy netted to power to a 3-9 to 1-8 lead at the break after Paddy McKenna pulled off a fine penalty save. Kildare's goals came from impressive full-forward Martin Fitzgerald (2) and substitute Jack Sheridan.

A second Keddy goal for Seamus Murphy's men shortly after the restart helped pull the home side back to within two points of Kildare, but Sheridan rifled over a sideline cut and bagged his second goal on 53 minutes to make it 4-13 to 2-13.

Enda Donohue harvested a quick 1-1 but Kildare always looked to have that little bit extra and points from Shane Ryan and Bernard Deay completed the scoring as the Lilywhites ran out 4-19 to 3-18 winners.

Scorers - Kildare: J Sheridan 2-5 (1 sl), M Fitzgerald 2-1, B Cormack (3f), S Ryan 0-3 each, J Burke (1f), B Byrne 0-2 each, C Bonus, K Whelan, P Divilly 0-1 each. Wicklow: A O'Brien 0-7 (2f), R Keddy 2-0, PJ Nolan 0-5, E Donohue 1-1, P Keane, G Byrne, P Doyle, G O'Brien, M Lee 0-1 each.

McMahon eyes more after facile victory

London 4-27 Armagh 0-11

London manager Fergus McMahon had hoped his side might come out on top against Armagh "by a wide margin" but could hardly have envisaged a 28-point gap between the sides at the Athletic Grounds.

Yet even as the Exiles prepare to take on Wicklow in the semi-finals, McMahon believes there is scope for further improvement.

"While I was pleased with the performance, I thought we could have won by more," he declared. "Hurling in London has come on leaps and bounds but we have some way to go to get where we want to be"

Certainly his team's dismantling of Armagh's fragile defence suggests better days ahead.

Clinical for long periods, London brought their hosts to their knees with goals from Henry Vaughan, Shane Lawless, Fergal Collins and Joseph Troy as Armagh were largely forced to rely on the free-taking of Conor McAnallen following early red cards for Ciaran Clifford and Dylan McKenna.

Scorers - London: C Nelson 0-6, S Lawless 1-2, A Sheehan (1f, 2'65's'), M Duggan, C Burke 0-4 each, J Troy 1-1, M Dwyer 0-3, F Collins 1-0, H Vaughan 1-0 M Ivors (f), R Murphy, C McAlinden 0-1 each. Armagh: C McAnallen 0-5 (5f), E McGuinness, S Renaghan, D McCreesh 0-2 each.

London: J Barrett 6; D O'Regan 7, B Reganb 7, C McAlinden 7; A O'Leary 6, K Reid 7, C Burke 8; F Collins 7, H Vaughan 6; K O'Loughlin 4, M Dwyer 8, C Nelson 8; A Sheehan 8, S Lawless 8, M Duggan 8. Subs: M Ivors 7 for Vaughan (44 mins), J Troy 7 for Duggan (54), D Moore 5 for Reid (61), D Roberts 5for Sheehan (62), R Murphy for Nelson (67).

Armagh: S Doherty 6; D Magee 6, P Gaffney,6 A Fox 5; S Toal 5, C Clifford 5, J Corvan 6; N Curry 7, O Curry 6; D McKenna 5, B Short 5, D McCreesh 6; S Renaghan 7, E McGuinness 6, C McAnallen 7. Subs: D Grant 5 for Magee (h-t), G McKeown 5 for Toal (44), P Quinn 5 for Gaffney (63).
