Greencastle's Junior Cup odds shorten after Michael's scalp

UPSET: Greencastle knocked FAI Junior Cup holders St Michael's out of the competition on Sunday.

Greencastle FC are now 20/1 with Paddy Power to lift the FAI Junior Cup this season.

The reigning Inishowen premier division champions had their odds cut from 33/1 following their shock victory over holders St Michael's on Sunday.

Despite beating Tipperary kingpins Michael's, however, bookies reckon Greencastle are still a long shot heading into the last 16 of junior football's most prestigious competition.

Sheriff YC and Pike Rovers head the betting as 7/2 co-favourites, while Usher Celtic and Fairvew Rangers are close behind on 5-1.

The rest of the contenders are in double figures, with the only remaining Donegal side besides Greencastle - Buncrana Hearts - on 33/1.
