RATH­NEW

Wicklow People - - SPORT -

What a week for foot­ball in the club with Aughrims dou­ble header see­ing wins for both teams in­volved. Our Ju­nior B team took on favourites En­niskerry in the Phillip Doyle county fi­nal.

The lads fought hard and bat­tled to see the game out on a score­line of 1-8 to 1-7 and bring the cup home to the vil­lage, where they re­ceived a he­roes wel­come from our sup­port­ers.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Br­effni, Grassy, Alan and the panel!

Our Se­nior team then took on old ri­vals and cur­rent county cham­pi­ons Balt­in­glass in front of a large crowd to bat­tle for a place in the county fi­nal.

Both teams started ner­vously with both sets of for­wards kick­ing an ar­ray of bad wides.The game ended at half time on a poor score­line of 0-4 each.

The sec­ond half we played a lot bet­ter, we gained con­trol in the mid­field area and our for­wards seemed to link.

The turn­ing point of the game was the pass from Enan Glynn to Stephen “Bruiser” Byrne, which led to a goal.

In the end we ran out com­fort­able win­ners on a score­line of 1-9 to 8 points.

Bless­ing­ton await us in the county fi­nal this Sun­day.

We want to make this the big­gest crowd Aughrim has seen in re­cent years.

There will be buses or­gan­ised and leav­ing from Doyles Pub so con­tact the of­fi­cial Rath­newGaa 1885 facebook page for times and avail­abil­ity.Call­ing to all of our loyal sup­port­ers, lets cover Aughrim in red and green. Mer­chan­dise and flags are be­ing sold in the club­house.

We wish Harry, Anto, PJ and the Se­nior panel the very best of luck in the fi­nal. Up the Vil­lage!

We send con­do­lences to the Franey fam­ily on the pass­ing of Kath­leen. RIP
