Mem­bers of the En­niskerry His­tory So­ci­ety are in­vited to

Fri­day’s 2 p.m. 60-minute talk in Bray Library, Eglin­ton Road, Bray, by James Scan­nell on ‘From Grand Jury to County Coun­cil: Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment in Co. Wick­low’. All wel­come – ad­mis­sion free. This is the fi­nal pre­sen­ta­tion in this se­ries of Fri­day lo­cal talks in Bray Library.

Our un­der-12s take pride of place this week af­ter their fan­tas­tic cup win over Wick­low Rovers ‘B’ last Satur­day af­ter­noon in Grey­stones. All the goals in the 3-0 vic­tory came in the sec­ond half and was just re­ward for the team, as they were the bet­ter team through­out de­spite Rovers valiant ef­forts. They did ev­ery­thing but score in the first half, as there aim was a lit­tle off.

They opened the scor­ing two min­utes into the sec­ond half when a flow­ing move in­volv­ing Dar­ragh Hef­fer­nan and Bobby Dowl­ing was dis­patched to the net by Fionn O’Reilly at the back post. A fur­ther two min­utes in and the game was put to bed when O’Reilly slipped a bril­liant pass through to Hef­fer­nan and he got enough of a touch to put the ball in the net. The third goal came with min­utes re­main­ing when Bobby Dowl­ing broke from the half­way line to clip the ball past the ad­vanc­ing goalkeeper. Hard luck to Wick­low Rovers who gave it their all on the day.

Bobby Dowl­ing the New­town cap­tain re­ceived the cup on be­half of his team-mates that in­cluded the fol­low­ing, Sean Bishop, Ja­son Carthy, Shane Dun­leavy, Re­becca Gil­lan, Shane Syn­nott, Fionn O’Reilly, Laragh Davis, Char­lie Sul­li­van, Dar­ragh Hef­fer­nan, Si­mon Plant, Leon Hughes, Sam Gil­lan and the in­jured Luke Breen. Well done to the man­age­ment team of Dave McGuirk and Joe Martin on the win and thank you to all the sup­port­ers who trav­elled.

No joy for our un­der-14s who were well beaten by Round­wood. The con­ces­sion of an early goal didn’t help New­town and though they did play them­selves back into the game, they con­ceded a sec­ond when they were en­joy­ing their best spell of the game. They did get a goal back to make it 2-1 when a cor­ner from the right was put through his own goal by a Round­wood de­fender. Things wouldn’t have been too bad go­ing into the break at 2-1 down but Round­wood scored a third from an­other set piece to go 3-1 up.

New­town never raised a gal­lop in the sec­ond half and Round­wood scored three more goals to run out con­vinc­ing win­ners. On the day too many of the New­town play­ers played be­low par. There was plenty of hon­est ef­fort and among the play­ers who starred were Conor Ka­vanagh, An­drew Wa­ters, Ciaran Man­gan and Alex Kelly. Hard luck to the team, many thanks to the sup­port­ers who trav­elled and well done to the man­age­ment team of Stephen Nolan and Sea­mus Wa­ters who looked af­ter the team all sea­son.

There were other games played dur­ing the week as the 11’s lost 3-2 away to Rath­new with the goals scored by Ryan Clarke and Dar­ragh Hef­fer­nan. On Sun­day morn­ing they won 1-0 away to Aughrim Rangers thanks to an own goal but with a de­pleted team. This re­sult means the min­i­mum the team can get is a play off for a place in the fi­nal. A point from their last game next Satur­day will ce­ment their place in the Shield fi­nal. The 12’s lost dur­ing the week in Grey­stones 2-0 but they have al­ready qual­i­fied for the Shield fi­nal where they will play Round­wood in the de­cider with a po­ten­tial tre­ble up for grabs.

The fix­tures are as fol­lows for the pe­riod Satur­day, June 4, – Sun­day, June 5: un­der-10s – Fix­ture to be con­firmed; un­der-11s at home to St An­thony’s ko Satur­day at 12.15 p.m.; un­der-12s – Friendly to be con­firmed; Ladies’ team at home to Dun­dalk FC KO to be con­firmed (ko times and dates are sub­ject to change)

Our lat­est ‘Golden Goal’ com­pe­ti­tion was the Cham­pi­ons League Fi­nal be­tween Atletico and Real Madrid and the win­ning minute was the 15th minute. The re­sults were as fol­lows: 15th Min – €60 Bobby Dowl­ing Jnr.; 14th Min Stephen Nolan; 16th Min Stephen Nolan
