Glen­view FC crash out

Bray People - - SPORT -

THE LINE up for the Char­lie Bishop Cup semi-fi­nals can be con­firmed and it con­tains cur­rent cham­pi­ons St. Peter’s Bhoys A, their fel­low Premier Divi­sion side New­town United A as well as Divi­sion 1 sides St. Pa­trick’s A and Ark­low Town B, who pulled off the sur­prise of the week­end by beat­ing Premier Divi­sion con­tenders Glen­view FC A.

The Saints faced a tricky tie away to plucky BBK United and the Bray side ne­go­ti­ated their way to a 3-1 win, with top scorer Shane Byrne adding an­other sin­gle to his sea­son tally, while James and Justin Kelly also reg­is­tered ef­forts for the top flight side. Wil­lie Syn­nott was the hosts’ goalscorer.

New­town United ad­vanced to the last four af­ter winning a hec­tic match against Wolfe Tone Celtic at the Bray venue by five goals to four af­ter ex­tra time.

The two sides were tied on three goals apiece at the end of 90 min­utes but the Mag­pies pulled away in ex­tra time, net- ting twice to end Celtic’s Char­lie Bishop Cup dreams.

Ross Od­lum led by ex­am­ple for United by net­ting a hat-trick. Cathal McNi­cholas and Neil Martin also chipped in with ef­forts for the vis­i­tors.

But Peter’s and New­town shall be the only top flight sides in the hat for the semi fi­nal draw, as Glen­view FC, the only other sur­viv­ing Premier side, were dumped out of the cup at the week­end by Ark­low Town B at the Bridgewater Cen­tre Park.

Paul Byrne, Mick Byrne and Matthew Hud­son were all on tar­get for the hosts in their 3-2 win. Rob­bie Healy and Leon Gal­lagher were the Glen­view marks­men.

And Ark­low Town will be joined in the penul­ti­mate round by reign­ing Thomas Scott Cup cham­pi­ons St. Pa­trick’s.

The Saints beat Avoca side Fair­wood Celtic by five goals to three, de­spite Celtic fir­ing three goals past the Saints in the first half cour­tesy of Stephen Nolan (2) and Paul O’Keefe.
