Cham­pi­ons Glen­view get off to winning start

SOC­CER ROUND-UP OF ALL THE LO­CAL ACTION

Bray People - - Sport -

En­niskerry YC 0, Glen­view FC 2: It may be a brand new sea­son but it’s the same old story for the reign­ing Andy McEvoy Premier Divi­sion cham­pi­ons Glen­view FC as they got their new sea­son off to a winning start. PREMIER DIVI­SION The Bray out­fit will need to be at their very best if they are to re­tain their crown again this sea­son and they got off to a per­fect start at En­niskerry’s ex­pense thanks to goals from Kieran Con­way in the first half and a header from well known ex-Bray Wan­der­ers star Kieran ‘Tarzan’ O’Brien in the sec­ond half.

Ark­low Celtic 6, Ark­low Town 3: Last years run­ners-up in the Premier Shield en­joyed a con­vinc­ing win over their ri­vals Ark­low Town in a high scor­ing clash at Celtic Park last Sun­day.

A Paul Werder brace and a Peter Fin­negan strike would have been enough for three points for Town on most days but not on Sun­day as Celtic, and in par­tic­u­lar Dar­ren Doyle, were in pro­lific form.

Doyle well and truly got him­self off the mark for the new cam­paign with a hat-trick, while his team­mates Cliff Whe­lan and Brian Mo­ran (2) chipped in as well.

St. Peter’s Bhoys 0, Wick­low Town 0: St. Peter’s Bhoys will be hop­ing that they can go one bet­ter than last year when they had to make do with the run­ners up spot in the league but they didn’t get off to the best of starts here, play­ing out a stale­mate at the Peo­ple’s Park.

They shouldn’t be too dis­heart­ened how­ever though as Wick­low Town have seen plenty of changes over the sum­mer and could be chal­leng­ing for league hon­ours this year also.

St. An­thony’s 3, Rich­mond Rovers 1: Two of the new boys to the Andy McEvoy Premier Divi­sion faced each other on the open­ing day of the new sea­son and it was the Divi­sion 1 cham­pi­ons who emerged the win­ners at Finn Park.

A Martin Wil­liams dou­ble and a Glen Tighe ef­fort meant that Rich­mond’s Stephen Doyle’s ef­fort was no more than a con­so­la­tion ef­fort.

On a se­ri­ous note, Rich­mond goal­keeper Keith Allen suf­fered a knee in­jury dur­ing the game and both clubs, and Peo­ple News­pa­pers would like to wish him a speedy re­cov­ery.
