Rich­mond Rovers look good at Premier level


Bray People - - Sport -

PREMIER DIVI­SION Glen­view FC 2, Rich­mond Rovers 3: They may only be up from Divi­sion 1 but Rich­mond Rovers have shown they mean busi­ness with this re­sult.

The reign­ing cham­pi­ons cer­tainly wouldn’t have been ex­pect­ing to be on the end of a de­feat but credit to Rovers, who are well and truly now an es­tab­lished force af­ter some fan­tas­tic per­for­mances last year and now this.

Alan Pyke gave Rich­mond the lead be­fore Dar­ren Col­lopy and Jack Dou­glas both net­ted to make it ad­van­tage Glen­view.

Rovers weren’t to be de­nied how­ever and af­ter Dar­ren Lyons had equal­ized, Pyle popped up with ap­prox­i­mately 15 min­utes to left to score his sec­ond and more im­por­tantly the win­ner.

Ash­ford Rovers 0, Shil­le­lagh United 3: Shil­le­lagh se­cured their first win of the new sea­son thanks to this comfortable victory over Premier Divi­sion new­bie’s Ash­ford Rovers.

The Wick­low Cup win­ners se­cured the three points cour­tesy of a Paddy Byrne dou­ble as well as a strike from Bobby Keogh.

With two games played each, Rovers are still looking for their first points but it’s still early days while United have three points on the board and sit in sev­enth place.
