The Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion are or­gan­is­ing a clean up in the vil­lage meet­ing in the Cas­tle Inn car park at 11 a.m. on Satur­day 20th Septem­ber.

The match for our sec­ond team at home to St. Fer­gals was post­poned but both our first team and youths en­joyed good wins. The Youth’s made the short trip to Grey­stones and came out on the right end of a seven goal thriller.

Nelly O’Brien found his shoot­ing boots again and scored a hat trick while the pro­lific Billy Clark­son com­pleted the scor­ing in a good all round team dis­play.

The first team took on Dun­can­non from Wex­ford at home in the FAI Ju­nior Cup and pre­vailed 2-1 af­ter ex­tra time to ad­vance to the next round in dif­fi­cult play­ing con­di­tions.

With vir­tu­ally the last kick of the game a Dean Od­lum goal forced ex­tra time. Early in the first pe­riod Terry Mur­phy got on the end of a good move to score what proved to be the win­ner.

All in all it was a good all round team dis­play against a very good op­po­nent. How­ever star of the day was Gary Kelly who did Tro­jan work to get the pitch playable. Well done Gary and your two helpers!

The fix­tures for next week­end are as fol­lows; 1st Team Away to Ark­low Celtic- KO Sun­day at 11.30 a.m. 2nd Team Home to Wolfe Tone Celtic- KO Sun­day at 2.30 p.m. At the mo­ment the youths have no game this week end. (Fix­tures are sub­ject to change).


Great to get a break in the weather so vir­tu­ally all of our teams saw some action on the field. In to­tal we got eight matches played and we recorded 4 wins, 1 draw and 3 de­feats.

Our 8A’s got on the winning trail straight away with a hard fought 1-nil win at home to Grey­stones ’B’. A long range cracker from Cian Walsh se­cured the win while best on the day were Jack Gal­lagher & Lee Turner.

The ’B’ teams from New­town & Rath­new served up an ex­cel­lent game in New­town shar­ing six goals. The New­town goals were scored by Me­lanie Clarke who notched 2 and Daniel Testa.

A be­low par dis­play from the Un­der 9’s re­sulted in a 3-1 home de­feat at the hands of Wick­low Town ’A’. Sean Gre­gory scored the New­town goal and he along with Lee McMa­hon & Dion Doyle were the best play­ers on the day. An­other stat from this match was yet an­other fan­tas­tic penalty save from New­town net min­der Alex Syn­nott.

The Un­der 10’s short a cou­ple of reg­ulers came out on top at home to Ard­more Rovers in an ex­cel­lent game of foot­ball by the nar­row­est of mar­gins 10. As in all games be­tween th­ese two teams the game was de­cided by a crack­ing goal, this time from Kenneth Turner with a shot from 25 yards!

The Un­der 11’s col­lected six points from two games with Ard­more Rovers in the past week. On Tues­day night in Bray they recorded a 5-1 win with birth­day boy Keith Dal­ton cel­e­brat­ing a day ear­lier by help­ing him­self to four goals. Evan Mo­ran started the scor­ing with an ex­cel­lent header from a left wing cross.

On Sun­day in New­town Dil­lon Carthy scored four goals, Sean Dease helped him­self to a hat trick and there were sin­gles for Kenneth Turner, Keith Dal­ton & left back Stephen Tay­lor in the re­turn match.

Con­ced­ing three early goals meant the 12’s faced an up­hill task at home to Ark­low Town ’B’. They even­tu­ally lost on a 6-1 score­line with Robert Gre­gory scor­ing the New­town goal.

Last but not least the Un­der 13’s learned a harsh les­son in their first game in the Premier Divi­sion at home to Wick­low Rovers ’A’. Only Dean Tay­lor, Cian Gal­lagher & Steven Davis played any­where near their best in a heavy de­feat.

Up­com­ing fix­tures for the com­ing week are as fol­lows; Sat 20th/Sun21st Sept Un­der 8A’s Away to Ard­more Rovers. - KO Sun. at 11 a.m. Un­der 8B’s Away to En­niskerry ‘C’ - KO T.B.C. Un­der 9’s Home to Ark­low Town ‘B’KO Sat at 2 p.m. Un­der 10’s Away to Grey­stones ‘A’- KO Sat. at 11 a.m.
