Rovers hit Fair­wood for six

Bray People - - SOCCER ROUND-UP -

CHARLES­LAND AFC will be singing the praises of Wick­low Rovers B all week.

The White­gates side did Charles­land a mas­sive favour at the week­end when they dished out a sur­prise 6-0 spank­ing against their ti­tle ri­vals Fair­wood Celtic.

Johnny O'Con­nors is a man in a rich vein of form and he found the back of the net twice against Celtic. Timmy Kelly, Ed­die Kelly, Ed­ward Dunne and James Mack­lin were also on the score­sheet as Rovers edged to within a point of the pro­mo­tion places.

That re­sult set things up per­fectly for Charles­land to move three points clear at the top and the Grey­stones side duly obliged, putting four past Carnew Celtic.

Christo­pher Cox was the star of the show as he bagged a brace. Stephen Lynch and Garry White recorded sin­gles for the league lead­ers.

Those vic­to­ries meant it was es­sen­tial that Conary United picked up three points against Aughrim Rangers and they did not dis­ap­point. The Avoca side fired five past Rangers at Allen Park to main­tain the pres­sure on those sides above them.

Brothers Stephen and Niall McAu­ley were both on tar­get for United on Sun­day, as were Davy Do­ran, Dy­lan Do­ran (no re­la­tion) and Andy Kennedy.

Bot­tom side Ark­low Celtic B also en­joyed a suc­cess­ful week­end. They recorded just their sec­ond league win of the sea­son with a 2-1 vic­tory over Red­bank United. De­clan Carstairs net­ted United's ef­fort. The Celtic Park side may have am­bi­tions mov­ing off the foot of the ta­ble, but it's un­likely that they can catch Ark­low United B or Fas­saroe YC B who played out a 2-2 draw at the week­end.

Dan Gaynor and Jensen Berry notched for the vis­i­tors at Fern­dale Park.

Fi­nally, Wick­low Town are keen to throw their hats in the pro­mo­tion race and they did them­selves no harm this week with a 03 win over Saints FC at the Wex­ford venue.

Thomas Duffy struck twice for the Fin­lay Park side, while there was also a goal for Bray Wan­der­ers star­let Ea­mon Wolfe.
