SAINTS FC have another chink in their armour after suffering their first defeat of the season on Sunday.

The Wexford side travelled to Ryder's Field on Sunday hoping to get back to winning ways with a win over Glencormac United, having drawn the previous week.

But their plans unravelled as the Kilmacanogue side recorded their second win on the spin to elevate themselves to third spot in the Division 2 table.

The sides cancelled each other out in the first half but the Glens turned on the style in the second period and efforts from Emmet Burke, Colm Nolan and Stephen Morgan helped to secure them a 3-1 win.

United had to wait until last week for their first win of the campaign.

That success came against Redbank United and it inspired them to a win over Saints on Sunday, but it seems to have had the adverse effect on Redbank who suffered their second loss of the season at the hands of local rivals Roundwood FC.

Robin Byrne and Tony Conway both netted against their former side but that wasn't enough to prevent them from sliding to a 3-2 defeat at the Vartry Grounds.

That win sees Roundwood move to within three points of Saints FC.

There was also good news for Aughrim Rangers on Sunday who found it to be a case of third time lucky as they landed a first win at the third time of asking. Conary United were the side they overcame by four goals to two to move up to fifth spot.

Finally, it was an all-Arklow affair in Celtic Park this week as Seaview Wanderers locked horns with Arklow Celtic and the hosts remain at the foot of the table after losing 1-3 to the former Thomas Scott Cup champions.
