THEY came, they saw and they were conquered; albeit very harshly.
FRIDAY, MARCH 14
Nothing like a local derby to close out the weekend's football. Sunday afternoon saw Wicklow Town AFC take on Wicklow Rovers in the under-16 Premier League.
Alan Mathews is enjoying a fruitful honeymoon period and he can see no reason why Sligo Rovers would have to burst his bubble.
It looks like Alan Mathews has quickly become accustomed to the Bray Wanderers approach of doing things the hard way. Having seen his side throw away a two-goal lead at the home of his former club, Mathews called upon Jake Kelly to bail him out and the attacker answered the call with a hat-trick in extra time.
Blessington native and Senior Irish soccer player, Louise Quinn, collected the 3FAI Senior International Player of the Year award at the recent soccer awards in the RTE studios.
On the senior front at the weekend both the first team and second team had excellent wins, the first team travelled to take on fourth placed Portmarnock and came home with a fantastic 2-0 victory against a side they lost 4-1 to at home earlier in the season.
Paul McShane could be the envy of Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie and Juan Mata next season as his Hull City side stand on the cusp of potential European football.
"I've heard of that (second season syndrome!). I wouldn't be too worried about it. Then again, I did come in unknown last season so defenders will know what I'm about so it will be harder. But that's up to me, I'll have to work on my game and change it up a bit", – Davy O'Sullivan, 3/12/2013.
ST. Patrick's and Seaview Wanderers reignited an old battle on Sunday and although neither side claimed victory, Seaview Wanderers were the losers as they spurned the chance to inject some fresh hope into their title or promotion hopes.
WICKLOW Town had no sympathy towards Arklow Town's plight as they got off to a flying start under their new management team.
A WET and windy Friday night saw Bridgewater Centre Park host the Charlie Bishop Cup quarter-final between home side, Arklow Town, and current cup holders, Rathnew AFC.
WHAT a difference a day makes. On Saturday evening, Arklow Town were joint title favourites and Arklow United were stuck in the relegation zone.
GREYSTONES U-14s qualified for the final of the Metro League with a convincing victory over a spirited Skerries side at Dr Hickey Park last Sunday.
RATHNEW FC bounced straight back from the frustration of losing pole position in the league as they triumphed over Greystones United in this last eight Charlie Byrne Cup clash.
CELTIC Stars' timing is impeccable. For most of the season their results have been somewhat indifferent but they've saved their best form for the second half of the season if their past two results are anything to go by.
TWO sides strolled into the penultimate stage of the Jim McLaughlin Premier Cup at the weekend. One team did it without breaking sweat, while the other did it without even kicking a ball!
