New­town bounce back with big win

Bray People - - SOCCER ROUND-UP -

NEW­TOWN UNITED showed their re­cent de­feat to Rath­new AFC was just a mi­nor blip on the radar as they bid to de­fend their Premier Divi­sion crown.

Hav­ing lost their un­beaten record in their most re­cent league out­ing, the Mag­pies were de­ter­mined to get things back on track this week and they did so in em­phatic fash­ion on Sun­day.

En­niskerry YC A were the mis­for­tu­nate vic­tims as they crashed to a 5-1 de­feat at the Matt Kelly Me­mo­rial Grounds.

Ross Od­lum notched up an­other two goals on his tally for the sea­son. Cathal McNi­cholas, Billy Clark­son and John Hef­fer­nan were the men re­spon­si­ble for United's other ef­forts.

United have now moved level on points with Wick­low Town at the top of the ta­ble, but the Fin­lay Park side have played a game more than their ti­tle ri­vals. Stephen King net­ted the YC's con­so­la­tion ef­fort on Sun­day.

At Bridge­wa­ter Cen­tre Park, Rath­new AFC A were un­able to build on their magnificent vic­tory over New­town. Anto Nolan scored for the Sham­rock Park side as they slipped to a 3-1 de­feat against the Black and Whites.
