Mag­pies call in their big guns

Bray People - - SPORT -

NEW­TOWN UNITED A has called in the cav­alry as they look to get out over the line in the Andy McEvoy Pre­mier 1 ti­tle race.

With a clus­ter of stars sus­pended, a Mag­pies leg­end has briefly come out of re­tire­ment to aid the cause and he im­me­di­ately paid div­i­dends as he net­ted in his side’s 4-1 tri­umph over Wick­low Town A.

Marty Wil­liams also net­ted a sin­gle at the Matt Kelly Me­mo­rial Grounds, while the other two strikes came cour­tesy of Dessie Wa­ters as United took an­other step to­wards re­tain­ing their crown.

The New­town men will have to be pa­tient though as this week also saw ti­tle ri­vals Rath­new AFC A and Ark­low Town pick up max­i­mum points.

Ed­win Walker did his ab­so­lute best to de­rail the Vil­lagers but even his hat-trick could not stop Rath­new from col­lect­ing a 3-5 vic­tory at Celtic Park. Rath­new had a hat-trick hero of their own in the form of Mark Doyle, and he was joined on the score­sheet by Jamie Shea and Shane Doyle.

Ark­low Town’s chal­lenge this week was pro­vided by pluck Ash­ford Rovers who al­ways give their op­po­nents trou­ble. Danny Byrne net­ted for the vis­i­tors at Bridge­wa­ter Cen­tre Park but strikes from Mark Nolan and Alan Werder guided the Town to the win.
