WICK­LOW ROVERS

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

The se­nior ladies played two games last week and they were two that would de­fine their sea­son.

First up was a game away to Ash­bourne which they went into hop­ing for three points in the bat­tle against rel­e­ga­tion.

Un­for­tu­nately it wasn’t a good night as the girls went down 5-1 on a night to for­get.

On Wed­nes­day night they saw their last chance of sil­ver­ware slip away in a thrilling five goal en­counter with Enniskerry in the semi-fi­nal of the In­ter­me­di­ate shield.

The girls gave it their all in a tough game be­fore los­ing out 3-2.

The girls will now move into the last cou­ple of games hop­ing to get the pos­i­tive re­sults re­quired to try pull away from the rel­e­ga­tion zone.

Aimee Beale and Ni­amh O’Brien net­ted for the girls on the night.

In ju­nior ac­tion our un­der-12B’s suf­fered a heavy 6-0 de­feat in the sec­ond leg of their Di­vi­sion 2 cup quar­ter-fi­nal to Avon­more on Tues­day night, los­ing 7-1 on ag­gre­gate.

The lads never reached the heights of the first leg but to their credit they bat­tled right up to the fi­nal whis­tle.

On Fri­day night our 14B’s had a great 4-0 home vic­tory over Carnew in the sec­ond leg of their Pre­mier Cup quar­ter-fi­nal to win 5-1 on ag­gre­gate.

Goals from Aaron Mur­ray, an eighth of the sea­son for Ruairi Jenk­in­son, Peter Dunne and an own goal laid the foun­da­tions in the sec­ond half of the game af­ter the first pe­riod ended score­less.

The 16B’s lost nar­rowly to Ash­ford Rovers un­der-15’s in the quar­ter fi­nal of the un­der-15/16 chal­lenge cup.

In a tight en­counter that could have went ei­ther way it was Ash­ford who came out on top.

Kee­lan Vick­ers hit his sec­ond goal of the cam­paign to reg­is­ter Wick­low’s goal.

On Sun­day the 12B’s went down 2-0 to Avon­more at White­gates, in a game in which the lads will con­sider them­selves a shade un­lucky not to get some­thing from as they con­trolled it for large pe­ri­ods.

They were hit with goals in the first and last min­utes to earn the away side all three points.

Our un­der-14B’s lost their un­beaten record when they went down 3-2 away to Glen­cor­mac United in Ry­ders Field.

The lads rued a se­ries of missed chances and poor de­fend­ing.

It’s back to the train­ing ground to re­group and rec­tify it in their next game.

Aaron Mur­ray with his fifth of the sea­son and Ben Bowen with his fourth of the cam­paign net­ted for Rovers.

The un­der-15’s lost 4-1 to Cool­boy Rangers in the quar­ter-fi­nal of the chal­lenge cup.

The lads con­trolled the early part of the game and went in front mid­way through the half with a neat fin­ish from Ruaidhri Kelly.

Cool­boy lev­elled mat­ters against the run of play and then went on to add three quick fire goals to put the game to bed.

The lads with bet­ter fin­ish­ing could have made this game a lot closer. Luke Dunne and Ruaidhri Kelly im­pressed for Rovers on the day.

The club’s AGM will be held on Mon­day night, the 9th of Septem­ber, the venue is the club­house at White­gates and it will kick off at 7.30 p.m. sharp.

All mem­bers are re­quested to ar­rive on time as meet­ing will start at 7.30 p.m. sharp, thank you.

With the sec­ond half of the sea­son just started we would like to re­mind mem­bers who have out­stand­ing mem­ber­ship fees that these are due now, you can pay your mem­ber­ship on­line at wick­lowrovers.com, to your man­ager or through any com­mit­tee mem­ber, thank you.

On the odd oc­ca­sion when a team within our club don’t see a match snip­pet in our club notes or on our face­book page this is not down to the per­son writ­ing up the club notes or post­ing on the face­book page.

It’s be­cause the man­ager hasn’t both­ered to pass on the match de­tails.

All you are asked for is the re­sult and goalscor­ers, no match re­port is re­quired even though it would be ap­pre­ci­ated for our face­book page.

In fair­ness this is only the mi­nor­ity as the ma­jor­ity of man­agers are send­ing in re­sults, goalscor­ers and in some cases match re­ports.

We all know it’s a lit­tle harder to send in the in­for­ma­tion when you lose a match but this shouldn’t be the case.

Whether you win, lose or draw the match de­tails should be sent in for our club notes by 5 p.m. on the Sun­day evening.

Peo­ple are in­ter­ested in how our teams get on in their games so please for­ward your match de­tails not just when you win but for ev­ery game. This ap­plies to the whole club se­nior and ju­nior.

Un­for­tu­nately it’s the same man­agers week in week out that cause the prob­lem.

Please re­mem­ber we are all vol­un­teers, we have dead­lines to meet with the pa­per and Her­ald Striker.

We can’t just keep sit­ting be­side a com­puter wait­ing for a man­ager to re­ply when con­tacted for their re­sult so again we re­quest you send in your re­sult and goalscor­ers asap af­ter the end of your match.

Any­one with any­thing for our club notes, Face­book page, club web­site or our weekly on­line news­let­ter can con­tact me by email at [email protected]­mail.com or by text to 087-9108706.
