BOWLS

The mixed pairs were held in Wick­low on Satur­day 21/2/09/. Teams from all clubs in the East Coast In­door Bowl­ing League took part.

New­town won this event last year with B. Burke and A. Red­mond bowl­ing for the club, so when the se­lec­tors were asked to pick this years pair both were asked if they were avail­able to play.

The com­pe­ti­tion was hosted by Wick­low Bowl­ing Club all credit to them for a well run com­pe­ti­tion. New­town came out on top of their group, and Gorey topped their group.

So it was New­town and Gorey in the fi­nal, New­town got the bet­ter of Gorey in what was a very good fi­nal. New­town had done it again well done to all who took part, and well done to B. Burke and A. Red­mond. The trio com­pe­ti­tion is on March 14, hosted by

New­cas­tle.

NEW­TOWN UNITED FC

No fix­ture for the sec­onds as their home game ver­sus St.Peters was post­poned due to a ref­eree’s in­jury.

The 1st team ex­ited the Wick­low Cup af­ter a 2-0 re­verse away to St. Peters. In truth the lads had enough chances to score when the game was goal­less but failed to do so. Best were PJ Dowl­ing, John Hef­fer­nan and Mark Fitzsi­mons.

Bet­ter news re­gard­ing the Youths as they qual­i­fied for their sec­ond fi­nal in two weeks when they de­feated Wick­low Rovers 4-2 in New­town to reach the youths shield fi­nal. Austin Gaskin gave us an early lead but rather harshly New­town was re­duced to 10 men early in the sec­ond half. Wick­low re­stored par­ity soon af­ter and the game was on.

Ig­nor­ing the nu­mer­i­cal dis­ad­van­tage the youths ral­lied and got their game back on track. Gaskin had big say in putting New­town back in front when firstly he bril­liantly set up Conor Ec­cle­ston to score from 5 yards and then his crack­ing 20 yarder was tipped onto the cross­bar by the Rovers keeper only for Billy Clark­son to knock home the re­bound ( not sure about the goal cel­e­bra­tion Billy !).

As in re­cent games the team does doze off for small pe­ri­ods and dur­ing this pe­riod the op­po­si­tion scored fol­low­ing a cor­ner to make it 3-2. Ger­ald Syn­nott who had toiled tire­lessly up front put the seal on the victory in the last minute with an ex­cel­lent solo goal. Best were Gaskin, Jamie O’Shea and Syn­nott.

The fol­low­ing are the fix­tures for the com­ing week end­ing Fe­bru­ary 28/March 1: 1st Team Home to Ash­ford Rovers KO Sun­day 2 p.m. (League). 2nd Team Home to Wick­low Town KO Sun­day 11 a.m. (League). Youths Away to Wick­low Rovers KO Satur­day 2 p.m. (League).

JU­NIORS NEWS

Six of our teams were in action last week­end and from those games we recorded, 2 wins, 3 draws and 1 de­feat.

The 8B’s won their first game since be­fore the Christ­mas break with an ex­cel­lent dis­play at home to Glen­cor­mac winning on a 4-1 score­line. De­but boy Jor­dan Doyle scored two while reg­u­lar scor­ers Daniel Testa and Me­lanie Clarke scored a goal each. On the day the whole team played well.

It was an­other heavy de­feat for our new ‘C’ team, this time away to Ard­more Rovers. Play­ing against much big­ger op­po­si­tion th­ese boys and girls shouldn’t worry about re­sults and just con­cen­trate on hav­ing fun and keep prac­tis­ing and the re­sults will fol­low. Best on the day were Luke Kelly, Dy­lan Fitzsi­mons and Dean Mur­ray.

The Un­der 9’s bat­tled out a score­less draw with Wolfe Tone ‘A’ in New­town in a game where clear chances were at a pre­mium. Kee­gan Hef­fer­nan and Corey Sul­li­van both went close for the home side while Alex Syn­nott had to pull off a cou­ple of sharp saves to thwart the op­po­si­tion in the sec­ond half. Best for the 9’s were Hef­fer­nan, Aaron Toner and Dion Doyle.

Sim­i­lar score­line for the 10’s at home to Ard­more Rovers where nei­ther side de­served to win the three points. Ryan Tay­lor struck the cross­bar with a 30 yard shot for New­town and then had to clear an Ard­more ef­fort off the line in the dy­ing min­utes. Best for the 10’s were Tay­lor and Joe Shan­non.

The Un­der 11’s com­pleted their league pro­gramme with a 3-1 away win over Wick­low Rovers. Keith Dal­ton helped him­self to two goals with Dil­lon Carthy adding the other goal. Best were both goalscor­ers, Dar­ren Browne and Kenneth Turner.

Fi­nally the 13’strav­elled away to play Wolfe Tone ‘A’ and fought out a thrilling 4-all draw. Luke Martin scored twice and there were sin­gles for Stu­art Syn­nott and Ai­dan Carthy. Best were Dean Tay­lor, Mark Flood and goal­keeper Sean Od­lum who also saved a penalty.

The fol­low­ing are the fix­tures for the week end­ing Fe­bru­ary 28/March 1; Un­der 8A’s Home to Ard­more Rovers ‘A’ KO Satur­day 11 a.m. Un­der 8B’s Home to Ard­more Rovers ‘B’ KO Sun­day 11 a.m. Un­der 8C’s Away to Wolfe Tone ‘D’ KO Satur­day 11 a.m. Un­der 9’s Away to Wick­low Town KO Sun­day 11a.m. Un­der 10’s Home to Ark­low Town ‘B’ KO Sun­day 10 a.m. Un­der 11s, 12’s and 13’s - Fix­ture to be con­firmed.
