St. Anthony’s A 1, Arklow Celtic 1: St. Anthony’s and Arklow Celtic had to settle for a share of the spoils after both sides failed to produce a winner in this match played at Finn Park last Sunday morning.
PREMIER DIVISION This result now sees Celtic move to within four points of top spot, albeit with a game more played than the top side.
The Kilcoole side meanwhile remain just a point behind the Arklow side in fourth place with a game in hand and had they found a winner they would have been sitting in second place this week.
JP Kelly got the goal for the hosts.
Ashford Rovers 1, Glenview FC 5: Glenview FC leapt three places in the league on Sunday after this convincing win which leaves Ashford Rovers still with just a point, and only Enniskerry YC between them and the foot of the table.
The Bray side had enjoyed quite a slow start to the league campaign but now appear to be back on track as they chase St. Peter’s Bhoys who have quite a healthy lead at the top of the table.
Clinton McCormack took the plaudits after hitting the target three times to secure the match ball, with Bray Wanderers legend Kieran ‘Tarzan’ O’Brien also netting, as well as former Enniskerry YC star Ashley McDonagh.
Richmond Rovers 3, Enniskerry YC A 1: Enniskerry YC remain rooted to the bottom of the Premier Division after failing to beat Richmond Rovers at the Ballywaltrim Community Centre last Sunday afternoon.
This win now sees Bray side Rovers move to within a win of second place, something they deserve great credit for having come up from Division 1 last year.
Richmond collected the three points in this one thanks to strikes from Stephen Doyle, James O’Toole and Frankie Cowen.
