Honours even at Arklow Town
SOCCER WICKLOW LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION
PREMIER DIVISION Arklow Town A 1, Glenview FC 1: Glenview faced the long difficult trip down to face Arklow Town last week and despite taking the lead, the Bray side were pegged back and had to settle for a point.
Glenview have now played five league game sand are on seven points, while Arklow have one after three games.
Craig Ledwith go the equalizer for Town. Arklow Celtic 4, Ashford Rovers 4: A match full of incident and not one for the faint hearted ended with Ashford Rovers having two men sent off for violent con- duct and both sides with a point to show for their efforts.
Goals from Craig Quinn, Danny Byrne and Brendan Manning as well as own goal left Ashford 4-1 up but Celtic fought back to level the scores with brothers Edwin and Peter Walker scoring while Barry Moran netted a brace (and missed a penalty for his hat-trick).
An Arklow Celtic player then had to be taken to hospital after being on the receiving end of a head butt. St. Anthony’s A 5, Shillelagh United 0: St. Anthony’s maintained their 100% record in the Premier Division thanks to this convincing 5-0 win over Wicklow Cup champi- ons Shillelagh United at Finn Park.
Colm McGovern will have gone home with the match ball after scoring three and Martin Williams and Barry Hamilton also contributed a goal each for the Kilcoole outfit who now sit 5th .. Glenview FC 0, St. Peter’s Bhoys 1: The team from Little Bray’s start to the season gets better and better but for Glenview, it’s one point from the last nine available.
Last year’s top two would most certainly be expected to be up there again this year but it is Peter’s who are taking all the plaudits at the moment and they took all the points last Sunday thanks to Colm McLaughlin’s first half strike.
