Fair­wood Celtic pull out of Div. 2

Bray People - - SPORT -

FAIR­WOOD CELTIC be­came the lat­est side to bite the dust as they with­drew from the Pat O’Toole Di­vi­sion 2 this week. And their de­ci­sion looks to have de­cided the rel­e­ga­tion is­sue. Their fi­nal two fix­tures – against fel­low strug­glers Glen­cor­mac United and Round­wood – have now been given as walkovers and that has pro­pelled the duo re­al­is­ti­cally out of Saints FC’s reach.

Glen­cor­mac United also gave a walkover them­selves this week as they didn’t travel to Avoca on Wed­nes­day evening and in do­ing so, pushed St. Patrick’s ever closer to seal­ing the league crown.

A win in ei­ther of their re­main­ing fix­tures will at the very least se­cure a play-off for the league – that’s as­sum­ing Rath­new pick up 12 points from their re­main­ing ties.

But a win and an­other pos­i­tive re­sult would see the Saints crowned cham­pi­ons.

On the field, Celtic Stars won pro­mo­tion to the Andy McEvoy Pre­mier 1 this week. They en­joyed a facile 1-3 win over Seav­iew Wan­der­ers on Tues­day evening at the Bridge­wa­ter Cen­tre Park to con­firm their place in the top flight next term. Mark Egan, Ray Mur­phy and Lukasz Niewiadom­ski hit the goals for the side who, de­spite pro­mo­tion, look set to ply their trade in the Car­low League next year.

Rath­new AFC B can­not go up and nor can New­town United B who would the­o­ret­i­cally be next in line. The Mag­pies faced Round­wood in the Vartry Grounds dur­ing the week and Karl Carthy and Vinny McCann both notched to help them to a 0-2 win.
