Greystones record their first victory
IF AT FIRST you don't succeed, try again. Greystones United obeyed this phrase time and time again after suffering defeats in all five of their five opening fixtures but the Seasiders were rewarded for their patience on Sunday as they recorded their first victory.
Carnew United were the side who were responsible for handing them those three points. A 4-1 win for the hosts, which came thanks to efforts from Niwel Tzumba (2), Eoghan Smullen and Mark Songhurst, has finally seen them break their duct.
Fairwood Celtic have been enjoying a different kind of season compared to Greystones United.
Celtic are still yet to taste defeat this season and that is a record that they share with Arklow Town and Newtown United A of the Premier Division.
They ensured that their unbeaten record remained intact on Sunday courtesy of a 31 triumph over Ballywaltrim FC.
Tony Darcy bagged a brace for the Coolboy club, with David Dillon also on target as Celtic moved into third spot. Tom Cowan managed the Bray side's consolation effort.
Arklow United B and Avonmore B are the two sides that Fairwood must catch if they are to climb the ranks, but they were unable to do so this week, with the top two both picking up maximum points.
Arklow United needed a relatively late showing to overcome St. Fergal's AFC B and keep their place at the head of the table. Eddie Dunne and Jordan Hannon both struck at the Ballywaltrim Recreational Park to hand their side victory.
Avonmore FC's win also came on their travels.
A trip to Carnew proved well worthwhile for them, as efforts from Scott Doran and Wesley O'Toole saw them pick up their sixth victory of the season.
