The first team were due to play on Satur­day against Tolka Rovers but it was put back to Tues­day 1st of March (last night).

The sec­ond team had no game while the third team were in­volved in the Char­lie Byrne Cup against lo­cal ri­vals Wick­low Town. Af­ter a tight en­counter and 120 min­utes of foot­ball with­out a goal it was de­cided by the nerve-rack­ing dreaded penalty kicks with Wick­low Town com­ing out on top by a score of 8-7 on penal­ties, we would also like to wish the Town the best of luck in the rest of the competition.

The youths con­tin­ued their re­cent im­prove­ment, even though they went down by a 3-2 score line away to Glen­cor­mac Utd this was a match that could have went ei­ther way, lead­ing scorer Dar­ragh O'Don­nell scored both goals.

The girls U-10 team were de­feated 3-1 by Bal­ly­oul­ster with Emer Mc­Nulty scor­ing the Rovers goal.

Congratulations to our U-10A's who won the 10's premier ti­tle at the week­end when they earned the point they needed against their near­est ri­vals Ark­low Town A, in a tight match which ended in a 0-0 draw there was great cel­e­bra­tions at the fi­nal whis­tle.

Their record in the league was played 10, won 8, drew 1 and lost 1.

In the process they scored 34 goals and con­ceded eight with the team hav­ing four blank sheets. Luca Ram­per­saud was lead­ing league scorer with 12 goals fol­lowed by Jade Duffy with 6 goals. The full squad is: Rossa Mar­ron, Ciaran Cof­fey, Adam Wal­dron, Luke Robin­son, Jack Evans, Eli Graham, Jack Dunne, Adam Cullen, Luca Ram­per­saud, Adam Byrne, Jade Duffy, Mark Ni­chol­son, Cor­mac Mur­ray, Pa­trick O'Keane.

The team is man­aged by Bood­han Ram­per­saud and his as­sis­tant is Eoghan O'Neill, once again congratulations lads.

The first team take on St. Michael's FC in Tip­per­ary next Sun­day in the last 16 of the FAI Ju­nior Cup. It is a very tough draw for the lads but the way the lads are per­form­ing in cup com­pe­ti­tions this sea­son con­fi­dence is high and on their day they would be a match for any of the teams left in the competition. Ev­ery­one con­nected with the club would like to wish the team the best of luck on Sun­day.

A date for your di­ary is Satur­day the 19th of March, this is the date which the first team play in the quar­ter fi­nals of the Le­in­ster Ju­nior Cup, they take on AUL side Sandy­hill Celtic FC at home in The White­gates.

Un­der-10 Premier League: Wick­low Rovers A 0, Ark­low Town A 0: The home side went into this game know­ing a point would give them the league ti­tle while Ark­low knew a win would see them lift the ti­tle. In a first half that seen very lit­tle chances cre­ated with both de­fences on top, Ark­low prob­a­bly had the bet­ter chances, and af­ter 12 min­utes the first chance of note saw Rossa Mar­ron save well.

Jack Dunne, who im­pressed through­out, set Pa­trick O'Keane away who in turn found Luca Ram­per­saud who fired just wide.

Both de­fences were on top in the first pe­riod with Ciaran Cof­fey and Adam Wal­dron in the Rovers de­fence very solid.

When the away side did find a way through just be­fore the break Rossa Mar­ron pulled off a magnificent save to keep his team on level terms at the in­ter­val.

Rovers came out the stronger in the sec­ond half and af­ter two min­utes Luca Ram­per­saud turned the Ark­low de­fence only for his shot to be par­ried away with Jack Dunne's ef­fort from the fol­low-up cleared off the line.

In the space of two min­utes mid­way through the half Ark­low went close on two oc­ca­sions. First they fired nar­rowly wide and then Rossa Mar­ron made his third ter­rific save of the match.

Jack Dunne worked tire­lessly in the cen­tre of the park and was in­volved in Rovers best move of the match when he picked the ball up from Luke Robin­son and set Eli Graham away only to be de­nied by a brave save from the Ark­low keeper.

Five min­utes from time Rovers had what proved to be the last chance of the game when Luca Ram­per­saud saw his shot well saved.

Ark­low pushed for­ward but found Luke Robin­son, Ciaran Cof­fey and Mark Ni­chol­son in no mood to be passed. In a tight en­counter Rovers got the point that earned them the ti­tle.

Jack Dunne, Rossa Mar­ron and Ciaran Cof- fey were out­stand­ing in a good all round team per­for­mance.

SQUAD: Rossa Mar­ron, Ciaran Cof­fey, Adam Wal­dron, Luke Robin­son, Jack Evans, Eli Graham, Jack Dunne, Adam Cullen, Luca Ram­per­saud, Adam Byrne, Jade Duffy, Mark Ni­chol­son, Cor­mac Mur­ray, Pa­trick O'Keane.

There were plenty of games this week­end in the Ju­nior and Se­nior sec­tions af­ter weeks on in­ac­tiv­ity on the play­ing fields. Re­sults in the School­boy and Se­nior di­vi­sions are as fol­lows: Un­der-8 Gold - Ark­low Town B 2, Rath­new 3 (Ross Quinn, Eoin Doyle,Owen Mcguin­ness). Un­der-9 Shield Divi­sion 2 - St. Peters 2 Rath­new A 0 (Tris­tan O’Toole, Shane Culi­nane). Un­der-9 Shield Divi­sion 4 Rath­new B 2 (Craig Joseph 2), Avon­more 2.

Un­der 17 - Rath­new 5 (Shane Doyle 2, Phillip Mur­phy 2, Steven Olo­han), Dalkey United 2. Man of the match here was Eric Dunne who put in a great shift for the team. There was matches in the Se­nior Di­vi­sions as well with both teams in ac­tion on Fri­day night. The re­sults were, in the Wick­low Cup Round 3 Grey­stones United 1, Rath­new B 1 (Jay Devlin) af­ter ex­tra-time. Grey­stones won 4-3 on penal­ties. Premier Divi­sion - Rath­new A 4 (Barry Mer­nagh 2, Jody Mer­ri­gan, Colin Jame­son), Su­gar­loaf 1. Con­grau­la­tions to the Un­der-16s who won the league on Sun­day with a point in a 1-1 draw with Ark­low Town. Well done to all man­age­ment and play­ers in­volved with the team. The sec­ond team bowed out of the Wick­low Cup on Fri­day af­ter a great ef­fort aginst a good Divi­sion 1 team in Grey­stones United. They were even­tu­ally beaten on penal­ties. On a sad­der note our thoughts and prayers go out to the White fam­ily af­ter the sad pass­ing of Jimmy 'Tiger' White who lined out for many a Rath­new team over the years. May he rest in peace.


The Premier team were in Wick­low Cup ac­tion on sun­day with a tricky last 16 tie against St. Peter’s of Bray. Hav­ing gone be­hind one nil early on the lads im­proved in the sec­ond half to come back and win 3-1. Mau­rice Dunne (2) and John O’Lough­lin got the goals. tTe lads are go­ing strong in all three ma­jor com­pe­ti­tions this year and hope­fully can keep up the good run.

Our sec­ond team won on penal­ties away to lo­cal ri­vals Wick­low rRvers in the divi­sional cup. Great per­for­mance from all the team on the day. The game fin­ished 1-1 in nor­mal time with Shane Dunne scor­ing the Towns goal with a good strike in­side to the box.

Our over 35's were away to Larkview on the week­end and won 2-1. Josh Duffy and Jimmy Hob­son scored the goals.

Un­der-11s away to St An­thony’s in the cup came away from Finn Park with a great 2-0 win, Robert Keogh and Dy­lan Roche with the goals, that win earns them a next round home game v .Ark­low United on April 2nd, well done .

Un­der-8as won 3-0 home to Grey­stones, Matthew Ryan, Jack Fox and Luke Kelly with the goals, ev­ery­one played re­ally well so well done all.


The com­mit­tee would like to of­fer its deep­est sym­pa­thy to Eu­gene Jor­dan and his fam­ily on the sad pass­ing of his mother Sadie, last week on be­half of all our teams and play­ers. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this sad time.

Pre­sen­ta­tion night: Pro­ceeds raised from the Santa dash will be pre­sented on the 25th March at 9 p.m. in The Pint De­pot, Carnew. €1350 was raised for each char­ity. Ev­ery­one is wel­come and we would love ev­ery­one who helped and par­tic­i­pated on the day to come along on the night. There will also be the pre­sen­ta­tion of the best dressed shop.

Face­book Page: Carnew AFC has set up a face­book page so why not join us, to keep track of any up­com­ing events, game fix­tures re­sults etc.

Se­nior men: Un­for­tu­nately the club was un­able to get the game post­poned, on Sun­day, out of re­spect to Eu­gene, one of the se­nior men's more ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers.

Celtic Stars 4, Carnew 0: It was a valiant ef­fort by the se­nior men , who started with just nine play­ers. Ev­ery­one gave 100 per cent on the day. The se­nior panel would like to ex­tend its sym­pa­thy to Eu­gene, on the pass­ing of his mother last Tues­day, our prayers and thoughts are with them at this time. How­ever thank you to all who togged out and we hope Eugo will be back soon.


Slowly but surely the weather is re­lent­ing and at last most of our teams are start­ing to see some ac­tion. From six games played we recorded four wins and two losses. Pride of place this week goes to the Girl's un­der015 team who trav­elled to Wex­ford to take on Shelburne United in the Le­in­ster Un­der-14 Cup quar­ter-fi­nal and came away with a su­perb 7-2 vic­tory to ad­vance to the semi-fi­nals. To put this re­sult in per­spec­tive our op­po­nents have won all their matches this sea­son and con­ceded only one goal in do­ing so. We led 2-0 af­ter ten min­utes thanks to goals from Ge­orgina Canavan and Amy Mur­phy.

Be­fore half-time Elaine Sut­ton added a su­perb third from 20 yards. If any­thing the girls got stronger in the sec­ond half and Amy Mur­phy in par­tic­u­lar was clin­i­cal in front of goal as she added a fur­ther four goals to put us seven up. The team eased off in the fi­nal ten min­utes and dur­ing this spell Shelburne scored two con­so­la­tion goals. On the day there were many ex­cel­lent in­di­vid­ual dis­plays but this re­sult was a magnificent team ef­fort as we fi­nally scored the goals our re­cent per­for­mances war­ranted. Well done ev­ery­body and we now look for­ward to see who our op­po­nents will be in the semi­fi­nals. The girl's un­der 13's played an away friendly against Mount Mer­rion and goals from Ni­amh O'Brien and Chelsea Snell se­cured vic­tory. An­other girl namely Ciara Dease scored a last minute goal to give the un­der 9's a share of the spoils at home to En­niskerry. Ciaran Keogh scored the other New­town goal. A goal five min­utes from time sent our un­der 10's down to an­other nar­row de­feat this time away to Ash­ford Rovers. This was hard on our team who played so well and but for a cou­ple of in­juries to key play­ers dur­ing the game, they may have had some re­ward. On the day yet again Me­lanie Clarke was out­stand­ing and was backed up by good dis­plays from Lee Turner and Dar­ren Magee. The un­der 12's were in League ac­tion at home to Round­wood and three first half goals from Ross Shine, Ryan Whe­lan and Kee­gan Hef­fer­nan se­cured a 3-0 win. Man of the match for the 12's was Joe Shan­non who had a su­perb game. The un­der 13's ad­vanced to the quar­ter-fi­nal of the Premier cup af­ter a one-sided af­fair away to Wick­low Town. Among our goalscor­ers were Keith Dal­ton, Sean Dease, Evan Mo­ran, Robert Greenan, Dy­lan Ford, Steven Kennedy and Ross Davis.

The fol­low­ing are the fix­tures for the weekending Satur­day 5th/Sun­day 6th March, Un­der 8's away to Wick­low Rovers 'B' ko to be con­firmed; Un­der 9's at home to St. Peters ko Sun­day at 11am; Un­der 10's at home to Avon­more F.C. ko Sun­day at 12pm; Un­der 12's - fix­ture to be con­firmed; Un­der 13's at home to Grey­stones 'A' ko to be con­firmed; Girl's U-13 away to Tem­ple­l­ogue United ko to be con­firmed; Girl's U-15 - fix­ture to be con­firmed.
