Shil­le­lagh with­draw

Bray People - - SPORT -

SHIL­LE­LAGH UNITED’S with­drawal from the top flight has aided some teams, while it has ham­pered oth­ers.

Wick­low Town A and St. Fer­gal’s AFC A were the big ben­e­fi­cia­ries – col­lect­ing six points apiece, while Ark­low Town, Ash­ford Rovers and Rath­new AFC A all re­ceived three points each as a re­sult of the Bal­lard club’s de­ci­sion.

Rath­new AFC A in­tend on mak­ing things as dif­fi­cult as pos­si­ble for their ti­tle ri­vals. The Vil­lagers opened up a four point gap at the top of the Pre­mier Di­vi­sion ta­ble on Thurs­day cour­tesy of a maul­ing of Ark­low United A at Sham­rock Park.

Mark Doyle added a match ball to his grow­ing collection with a hat-trick against the Ark­low men. Colin Cas­sidy, Nicky Mer­nagh and Jay Tay­lor also got in on the act to com­plete the 6-1 rout of the men from Ferndale Park.

Ja­son Carey re­stored some pride for the vis­i­tors with a goal but it was noth­ing more than con­so­la­tion for United.

The sev­enth placed side were in ac­tion again on Sun­day as they hosted rel­e­ga­tion ri­vals St. Fer­gal’s AFC B.

They fared a whole lot bet­ter in this one as they picked up a point against the Bray side.

Carey was not on tar­get on this oc­ca­sion but Richie Neary and Eoin Bren­nan were as they earned a 2-2 draw. Padraig Devlin and Glen Joyce found the net for the Saints.
