WE’RE mid-way in our sea­son, and all our teams have been busy. Our U8 and U10 squads are still play­ing in their blitzes, with the next one due in the GAA Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence, Bal­li­nakill, on Wed­nes­day, June 15.

The U12s com­peted in the U12 Go Games blitzes be­fore en­ter­ing the all-county Mini-League. So far, they have played Knock­ananna, Bray, An­nacurra, Kil­coole, and Gle­nealy. The U13 Cham­pi­onship starts in Au­gust and this will prove valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence for those U12s play­ing full camo­gie with the U13 and U14 squads.

The U14s have played with great heart, with games against Kil­te­gan, Donard-Glen, and Knock­ananna un­der their belt. Their next League match is against Donard-Glen next Monday night and the Cham­pi­onship is sched­uled to start on July 27.

The U16 League has fin­ished, with Bray Em­mets and Knock­ananna tak­ing the top two spots. Their sum­mer siz­zler (small sided) com­pe­ti­tion will run for four weeks, start­ing on July 6.

The In­ter­me­di­ate team com­peted in a mixed Ju­nior/In­ter­me­di­ate League com­pe­ti­tion and the semi-fi­nal­ist are still to be de­cided. Mean­while, the small-sided Sum­mer Sizzlers com­pe­ti­tion started last week (June 7) in Donard-Glen and con­tin­ues un­til June 21..

Fi­nally, mas­sive con­grat­u­la­tions go to three of our In­ter­me­di­ates who were on the win­ning Wick­low panel in the Le­in­ster Ju­nior Cham­pi­onship fi­nal against Louth in Aughrim on June 5. Wick­low were the stronger team on the day and Shauna Keogh, Aoife Darcy, and Maire Do­ran now boast a Le­in­ster Ju­nior ti­tle, in ad­di­tion to last year’s county haul of Ju­nion League and Cham­pi­onship medals.


U12 Foot­ball - Carnew 3-2, Michael Dwyer’s 0-8: Carnew trav­elled to take on Michael Dwyer’s in Kil­te­gan on Bank Hol­i­day Monday, June 6. It was a close en­counter with both teams evenly matched and some good in­di­vid­ual dis­plays from both sides. Carnew worked hard all the way through the game and were well re­warded when, with just a few min­utes to go and the sides level, Richard Greene scored a great goal that gave the Carnew lads the con­fi­dence to hold out un­til the fi­nal whis­tle was blown.

Roland Ch­le­chowich in goal had some fine saves, while Will Mol­loy at full back as­sisted by Cil­lian Doyle and Jack Brown­rigg were solid. Dan Red­mond and Jack Keogh were lively in the half back line. Cal­lum Pat­ter­son and Richard Greene at mid field made some great runs up the field and were in­stru­men­tal in Carnew get­ting some skil­ful scores.

Ruarí O’Brien and Shane Byrne who had great games were strong in at­tack. Luke Wallace was on hand to find the back of the net in the first half and his work rate should have had a few more scores but for some fine saves by the Michael Dwyer goal keeper. Conor Neville and Ryan Con­way tried hard and kept the Dwyers team un­der pres­sure through­out. Brian and Sean Kenny, Zack Jor­dan and Jack Kelly all played well when in­tro­duced in both halves.

Best of luck to the Un­der-14 Féile team who are tak­ing part in Tip­per­ary on June 17, from the Un­der-12 team men­tors and play­ers.

The Ju­nior team had a good win over Avon­dale in the Park last Wed­nes­day evening. There was very lit­tle be­tween the sides in the first half with Gle­nealy hold­ing a slen­der 2 point lead at the break 0-7 to 0-5.Gle­nealy came out of the traps much quicker in the sec­ond pe­riod and raced into a 7 point lead 0-12 to 05, Gle­nealy then lost their way a lit­tle bit as the field was en­gulfed in a heavy fog which seemed to un­set­tle our lads as Avon­dale scored 1-2 and re­duced the lead to 2 points. Gle­nealy picked it up again and 2 great points from Ben O’Neil and Ed­die Doyle set­tled the ship and they ran out win­ners 0-14 to 1-7. Tony Con­yard, Carrick Driver and Ste­fan O’Brien stood out in a good de­fence. James Manley was the mas­ter of the air­ways in mid­field and was never beaten un­der the high ball. Ed­die Doyle, Ben O’Neill and John O’Halloran made up a strong half for­ward line and Ross O’Brien, Dean Franey and Derek O’Neill all worked hard in the full for­ward line. The Ju­niors next game is away to Eire Og next Wed­nes­day evening (tonight).

The Se­nior B had a good win over Ark­low Rocks in the park on Fri­day evening. There was very lit­tle in gen­eral play but Gle­nealy’s abil­ity to score 3 first half goals, when the tide was mainly against them proved de­ci­sive in the end. The half time score was Gle­nealy 3-4, ARP 0-8.The sec­ond half was also a tight af­fair with both sides finding scores hard to come by, but Gle­nealy fared that lit­tle bit bet­ter scor­ing 5 points to ARP’s 1 and run out win­ners 3-9 to 0-9. Anto Driver gave a great dis­play when he came on scor­ing 2-3, Paul O’Brien was unerring from placed balls, and ended up with 0-5. Eoin O’Neill scored the other point. Gavin Byrne led the back line by ex­am­ple and was rarely beaten for a ball, Dec Con­yard, Shane and Niall Keogh were also to the fore in an all round good team per­for­mance. There was no win­ner of the Jack­pot in last weeks Club Lotto. The num­bers drawn were 16, 17, 20, 21.This weeks Jack­pot stands at €3,500.

Well folks a win is a win af­ter a slow start/ first half against Shillelagh in the cham­pi­onship this was also the first cham­pi­onship game in Wick­low this sea­son. One thing I found strange was there was no Peter Keogh wait­ing for me at the dress­ing rooms for our team sheet. I won’t be the last to wit­ness this, Peter will be a sav­age loss for Wick­low GAA. Any­way back to the game we started with a point from Keith Lawlor in the first minute then we went on a run of 5 wides and a re­bound of the post. With the first half com­ing into the last 5 min­utes John Nolan scored a free and just be­fore half time they scored a free from close range. Half time score 0-02 to 0-01. Dur­ing the break we were confident that we’d do the busi­ness in the sec­ond half but at the start of the sec­ond half Shillelagh won the throw in and went into level the game but af­ter that score we showed what we’re ca­pa­ble of do­ing with 4 unan­swered points 1 from Myles Con­way and 3 from John Nolan all of th­ese points came af­ter great work from our back­line, th­ese scores put us in con­trol of the game but as Shillelagh do they kept plug­ging away and pulled back a point of their own. Then the killer score came with a clin­i­cal fin­ish to the back of the net from Keith Lawlor af­ter a great pass from Damien Han­lon. This put us in con­trol and af­ter 2 more Keith Lawlor points the game was more or less over. Shillelagh did man­age 1 more point from a free be­fore John Nolan scored the last point of the game. Fi­nal score Laragh 1-09 0-05 Shillelagh. We now have a break for a few weeks, next up is Valleymount in the cham­pi­onship. Tonight’s team - Peter Mer­ri­gan, Ross Doo­nan, Alan Smyth, Stephen Cur­ley, Craig McCoy, Ciaran Byrne, Steve Olo­han, Damien Han­lon, Davie McDonald, Dan Power, Mark Mi­ley, Myles Con­way, John Nolan, Keith Lawlor, Jack Dunne. Subs used on the night - Ea­monn Kennedy, Si­mon Byrne, John Hayes and Gary Cullen. We set out to get 2 points and we achieved it so well done to all. Scor­ers on the day: Keith Lawlor 1-03, John Nolan 0-05 and Myles Con­way 0-01. Train­ing con­tin­ues Tues­day Thurs­day and Saturday ev­ery­one please at­tend. We send a big thanks to all our sup­port­ers who trav­elled on the night, you’s were good and loud and it helped push the lads on.

Our ju­ve­nile train­ing is go­ing well ev­ery Wed­nes­day from 6-7 in the field. It’s great to see all the kids out play­ing ball so any­one that hasn’t turned up yet just come down any Wed­nes­day and join in. We have 2 or 3 of our se­nior play­ers help­ing out ev­ery week which can only im­prove out ju­ve­nile’s for the fu­ture.

Thanks to all who pur­chased a County De­vel­op­ment Ticket there’s still some avail­able as the draw was put back a few weeks. So if any­one is look­ing for one con­tact any com­mit­tee mem­ber.
