It is an old say­ing in Co. Wick­low that you haven’t won a foot­ball cham­pi­onship un­less you beat Rath­new in the fi­nal. Re­cently in Round­wood the parish team won the county un­der-15 Fi­nal beat­ing Rath­new in a cracker of a game. This game had ev­ery­thing –-good old fash­ioned hon­est to God foot­ball played by two very fit, and for their age, tough teams. Our lads lead from the start but Rath­new drew level just be­fore half time. A bit of argy bargy in the se­cond half added to the en­ter­tain­ment of the game and it egged on our lads to step up the pace. With the in­tro­duc­tion of a few subs, St Ni­cholas moved up a gear and be­came the first County Cham­pi­ons in this age group.

Our side of the parish was rep­re­sented Ro­nan Kelly, Oisin Traynor, Cian Fox, Tadgh Mc­Carthy, Wil­lie Ea­ger, Joe Mills and Seán Met­calfe as ‘starters’. We also had James Walsh, Ciaran Geoghan, Liam Met­calfe, Jack Keogh, Eoin Sheri­dan, Conor Man­i­fold, Jimmy Flood, Ben Law­less, David Wright and Oisin O’Friel on what is now called ‘the fin­ish­ers’ bench in­stead of ‘the subs’ bench.

The lotto jack­pot now stands at €6,300. Last week Niall Cur­ran and the club Lemon Syn­di­cate matched three and won €100 each
