            Whilst the headlines were dominated by his counterparts using an oval ball, former Cork City star Ray Lally helped Aussie side, the Whittlesea Zebras to promotion to the top flight of the Victorian Soccer League on Saturday.
            Lally, who starred for Cork's youth and reserve teams as well as the Cork Colleges XI won promotion to the Victoria State League based in Melbourne.  Galway's Vinny Flaherty is a teammate of Lally's as they beat a Southern Stars runners-up team that included Cork's Alan Mulcahy and UCD defender Darragh Ryan.
            Both teams were promoted to to the Victoria State League Premier Division for the 2012 season after an amazing final day of Super League Football Down Under.

               Leading going into the final day, Port Melbourne only needed a draw to secure promotion but were overcome 3-0 by Pascoe Vale with Lally's Zebra's taking advantage as they toppled Fawklner Blues 3-1 to narrowly book their place in next season's top flight.
