Eyre strikes again for Round­wood

Bray People - - SPORT -

AL­THOUGH it would ap­pear no­body wants to win pro­mo­tion from Di­vi­sion 2, Round­wood cer­tainly want to avoid rel­e­ga­tion from it.

The Vartry Grounds men looked dead and buried just two weeks ago but two wins in as many weeks now sees them rock­et­ing up the ta­ble to a healthy sixth place.

Pro­mo­tion-chas­ing Seav­iew Wan­der­ers were the lat­est vic­tims as their Andy McEvoy Pre­mier 1 am­bi­tions stalled. Paddy Lee set up Glen Hughes to give Round­wood the lead in the sec­ond pe­riod but Craig Led­with equalised to bring Round­wood crash­ing back down to earth.

But Round­wood grabbed a win­ner when Rob­bie Eyre flicked James Boul­lier’s throw-in into Danny Beale’s path and he buried a half-vol­ley to the net.

Celtic Stars re­main the favourites to join St. Patrick’s in the plane to the Pre­mier but a com­bi­na­tion of in­juries and other un­fore­seen cir­cum­stances led to them award­ing New­town United B a walkover.

Stars are heav­ily ex­pected to join the Car­low League next term but could still go out on a high by claim­ing pro­mo­tion and the Di­vi­sion 2 Cup.
