Weath­er­wise it was much the same as last week, but heavy rain late Satur­day night into Sunday morn­ing. Mix ups in com­mu­ni­ca­tion for want of a bet­ter word meant that the 8’s game away to Avon­more and the 10’s home game to Round­wood in the cup were not played. The 9’s game at home to St An­thony’s was a vic­tim of the weather, while the 11’s game at home to Shil­le­lagh was off due to the away side hav­ing a free week. Of the games played we had plenty of goals and drama.

The 12’s stayed in the hunt for hon­ours in both league and shield af­ter two fine wins in the past week. In mid­week they won 6-3 away to St An­thony’s where there was a glut of first half goals (5-3 to New­town). In fact it took a very late goal from Cathal O’Toole in the se­cond half to fi­nally se­cure all three points as the home side bat­tled it out with our guys for long pe­ri­ods. That late goal was Cathal’s fourth goal of the game while Jake Robert­son added the other two goals.

On Satur­day morn­ing they hit six again, this time at home to En­niskerry B win­ning 6-2. We had six dif­fer­ent scor­ers and they were, Dayle Carthy, Dy­lan Dun­leavy, Cathal O’Toole, Jake Robert­son, Brook­lyn Doyle and Keira Far­relly.

Our 13’s were at home in the league to Round­wood FC and as usual they gave it their all and left it all out on the pitch and were about five min­utes away from get­ting a very pos­i­tive and de­served re­sult. The fi­nal score of 3-2 to Round­wood was a lit­tle harsh on our team. The 13’s had led twice to two ex­cel­lent goals from PJ Duffy (free kick) and Jack Fin­negan. On the day among the best play­ers were Keira Far­relly, Jack Cough­lan and Pa­trick Martin. Also nice to see Leon Moran back in ac­tion with the team af­ter a while away.

Our ever pop­u­lar De­vel­op­ment Squad will re­turn on Satur­day, Septem­ber 28 (10.11 a.m.) af­ter the sum­mer break. All boys and girls from five to seven years are very wel­come to at­tend and can con­tact any coach or com­mit­tee mem­ber for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion.

Also we had planned to host a Soc­cer Sis­ters pro­gramme for girls but with the long evenings start­ing to fade we may have to leave this till early in the new year. The Soc­cer Sis­ters pro­gramme con­sists of six free one hour train­ing ses­sions with fully qual­i­fied and Garda vet­ted coaches from the club. All par­tic­i­pants would also re­ceive an FAI T-shirt if they par­tic­i­pate in all six weeks. If there are any fur­ther de­vel­op­ments on this pro­gramme we will let those in­ter­ested know.

The fol­low­ing are the fix­tures for the week­end Satur­day/ Sunday, Septem­ber 28/29: un­der-eights – Fix­ture to be con­firmed; un­der-nines – Fix­ture to be con­firmed; un­der-10 Red at home to En­niskerry ko to be con­firmed; un­der-11s away to Grey­stones Green ko to be con­firmed; un­der-12s at home to Ash­ford Rovers B ko Sunday at 10 a.m. (Cup QF); un­der-13s at home to Ark­low United A ko Satur­day at 11.15 a.m. (Fix­tures and KO Times are sub­ject to change)

Our ever pop­u­lar fundraiser ‘Last Man Stand­ing’ will soon get its first out­ing this sea­son. The start date is the week­end of Satur­day the 28th-Mon­day, Septem­ber 30. The cost is €10 per head and all money raised go to­wards the youth of the area.
