Unfortunately due to the bad weather most games in Wicklow were called off last weekend.

The women's mini world cup produced three more top games last Monday night. England got back to winning ways when they beat the previously unbeaten Ireland, Chelsee Snell who got both England goals and Anne Murphy played well for the winners while Naomi O'loughlan had a good game for Ireland.

Spain beat Holland with Leanne Sullivan and Clare Jameson playing well for Spain while Betty Doyle and Amy O'Neill showed good form for Holland.

France bounced back from their surprise defeat last week to beat Brazil and go top of the table.

Hazel Doyle and Deirdre McIntaggart were the best players for Brazil while Hayley Jameson and Susie Douglas had good games for the winners.

Next Monday is the last group game before we get down to the knockout stages so we should have a good night of football, please come along and support the girls. Our Junior Academy is on every Saturday at 11am for kids aged 4 to 7.

In the meantime the U-10s travelled to Greystones and despite a cracker of a game they lost 3-2, Mark Evans and Jack O'Reilly scoring the goals. The U-17s took on their league leaders Kingswood at home Saturday afternoon which ended 2-1 to Kingswood.

Last weekend four of our teams saw action on the field, in the main because three of the games were played on the Saturday morning before the flurries of snow hit the east coast and surrounding areas putting paid to any hopes the u-9s and girl's u-18s games of going ahead.

Of the four games that took place we made it a clean sweep and won all four games. The u-8s defeated a very good Arklow United team at home on a 6-2 score line. Jack Coghlan scored his first ever hat-trick and Ryan Clarke also notched a treble.

It was an excellent team display and among the star players were Adam White, Ryan McMahon and Devin Okundia.

The U-11s also won at home winning 4-1 against Enniskerry. In an all round excellent team display Dylan Fitzsimons scored twice while Darragh Dwyer and Andrew McMahon also found the net.

The U-12s, due to their exploits in the Division 1 Shield, have moved up to the Premier League and they got their league campaign off to great start with a 3-1 victory away to Greystones.

The whole team played very well and thanks to two goals from James Crean and one from Dean Murray the team secured three great points. On Sunday the girls U-16s game with Castleknock Celtic was switched to Rathnew and the team went on to play a fantastic game and ran out 4-1 winners in a game that showed everything that is good in girls football.

Once again the team played very well and at the moment are in very good form.

In another excellent team display among the players to star were Heather Cullen, Abbie Molloy, Erynn O'Brien and Chelsee Snell. Many thanks to Glen Fewings and James Snell for the use of the Rathnew pitch.

Two players from the club will be celebrating their birthdays in the coming week and they are Ross Carthy from the U-12s and Elaine Sutton from the girl's U-18s. Happy birthday Ross and Elaine from everyone at Newtown Juniors F.C.

Afraid it was a familiar story last weekend as the weather reared its ugly head once again.

Both the first team's game in Brittas and the second's home game against Conary went by the wayside due to the poor weather conditions.

There was no winner in our members draw this week so the jackpot rolls over again and goes to €500 for next week. Thank you for your continued support.


The U-9 team hosted Arklow United on a very cold Saturday morning. Arklow United were well up for the game as were at the pitch well before the home side.

It was touch and go for the first 20 minutes of play with Arklow having gone ahead midway through the first half with a well taken strike into the top corner.

Carnew battled hard and got the reward just before half time with a Josh Whyte free kick. Half time whistle blew and score line read 1-1.

The second half started at a high tempo and mid way through the second half Arklow United got two goals in quick succession as Carnew were caught out of position.

With time running out Josh Whyte gave the home side hope with another free kick which is placed in the bottom corner. Carnew pushed hard for the equaliser and were unlucky not to get, as they were pushing they were intercepted and were caught on the break by Arklow United who punished Carnew with another goal.

The final whistle blew and the score line read 2-4. The boys were unlucky not to get the draw but there were a lot of positives to take away and a few areas for working on in training.

Player of the week was awarded to Jack Rosney for his good attitude in training, his team spirit and also for his tackling skills.

The U-8 team hosted Wicklow Rovers straight after the U-9 game Saturday morning.

The team were eager for a win after the last few games not going their way and got the ball rolling early in play with Evan Kavanagh opening the scoring for the home side.

Conor Byrne put the team two up almost straight away. Wicklow Rovers got a penalty just before half time to make the half time score line 2-1. Carnew started the second half very strong and got four goals within 10 minutes when Zach Jordan, Corey Wallace added to the total and Evan Kavanagh putting two away to secure his second hat-trick of the season so far.

Wicklow Rovers netted themselves another goal with a well taken strike. Jack Kelly was on top form in the goal and saved balls that shouldn't have been saved and secured himself player of the week for his valiant efforts.

Jack Kavanagh knocked home a late goal to make the final score 7-2. This was a great confidence boost for the team and will make them keen to hit the pitch again next weekend.

The U-11 game was called off due to confirmation mass in Askamore.

Our first team made the long journey to Navan on Friday night to take on local side Parkvilla in what was a very important game for the lads, Parkvilla were one place and one point ahead of the lads in the table. After a titanic tussle Rovers put in a very workman like performance to edge out the home team by 1-0 to claim all three points and leapfrog them in the table.

Ian Brannigan provided the match winner on the night firing home a 35- yard free kick which eases them further away from the bottom end of the table.

The second team earned a share of the spoils when they travelled to north Dublin to take on Rush Athletic and after a tight game Ciaran McGettigan scored the Rovers goal which earned them a point.

The thirds lost narrowly to local rivals Wicklow Town on a 2-1 score line with Michael O'Connor bagging the goal for Rovers.

Our U-16s' exciting journey in the SFAI National Cup came to an end last Saturday afternoon when Mount Merrion of the DDSL defeated them 4-0 in the last 16 at the Whitegates.

It has to be said on the day the lads acquitted themselves well and it was just the little things that didn't go their way been the difference in the game.

In a first half which saw them a more than a match for their opponents they somehow found themselves 2-0 down at the break when they deserved more from the half.

The second half saw them push forward only for the away side to clinically punish them when they broke.

Jimmy, Brian and the lads would like to thank the large support from within the club present and past, it was nice to see so many of our senior, junior and girls section cheering the lads on.

Finally we would like to wish Mount Merrion FC the best of luck in the remainder of the competition.

The rest of the junior action in the club was confined to Sunday, our 8Bs lost 7-2 away to Carnew with Brian McCaul and Charlie Doherty getting their names on the score sheet, the 9As lost by the minimum margin when they went down 1-0 at home to Ardmore Rovers, the lads were a little rusty in this game and that is probably due to the fact its nearly two months since they last played.

Our 10As took on their club counterparts the 10Bs, the As came out on top in a very sporting game by 3-0 to maintain their 100 per cent record in the Shield, Troy Sutton, Fionn Luddy and Max Kearney netted for the As.

The 10Cs lost out by the odd goal in five to Greystones Utd with Scott Bushe and Donal O'Donoghue finding the back of the net.

The 11As made the short journey to Finlay Park to take on local neighbours Wicklow Town and after a close tussle it was the Town who came out on top by 2-0.

The 11Bs recorded an impressive 4-1 victory over Avonmore with Jamie Noble hitting a brace and both Charlie Christie and Joris Bearda scoring one a piece.

Our 12Bs lost 8-3 to a very strong St Fergal's side, two goals from Darragh Gibney and one from James Bradshaw accounted for their goals.

The 13As drew 1-1 with Enniskerry at the Whitegates to make it back to back draws with the same opposition, Ronan Murray scored the goal which assured them a share of the spoils.

Our U-13B team maintained their impressive run in the league when they defeated Ardmore Rovers 9-3 at home to keep their one hundred percent record intact.

Stephen Finlay hit another hat-trick for the second game running when he notched four goals, Stuart Cox bagged two with James Lang and Jack Gibney getting one each, the ninth goal came from a deflection.

The 14As were involved in a 10-goal thriller with Wolfe Tone with both teams earning a share of the spoils in a 5-5 draw.

Two goals from Adam Melia and singles from Shane Devlin, JJ Power and Rory Dowling completed the five goal haul for Rovers. The 15As recorded a good away victory over St Anthony's, Adam Copeland, Colin O'Toole and Eoin McAulay all hit the back of the net in a 3-1 win. The 8As, 9Bs, 14Bs and 15Bs' games were called off.

The U-16 girls defeated St John Bosco in the Rocky Road by two goals to one with Hannah Rose Buckley netting twice for Rovers to double her tally for the season. Both the U-12 and U-14 girls games were called off.

Everyone at Wicklow Rovers AFC would like to extend their deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Joe Furlong and Jim McGovern who sadly passed away recently, our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time, may they rest in peace.


Despite the ongoing bad weather Bray Wheelers had a busy weekend with members racing at the Traders Cup in Dundalk and training for the youth and older riders at the track in Sundrive on both Saturday and Sunday.

Bray Wheelers race team travelled to Dundalk on Sunday to race in the early season Traders Cup hosted by Cuchulainn Cycling Club. A field of 150 lined up at the start of this tough race which was made all the tougher by the severe weather conditions.

The miserable weather was compounded by the fact that it snowed for over 20kms of the race. Jason Howick took part in the A2 race while Ed O'Brien and John Spain contested the A3 race.

The Bray team rode their usual aggressive style of race and made several attacks though-out, at one stage getting into a four man breakaway for about 20kms.

This breakaway unfortunately didn't work out and the Bray guys were hauled back by the bunch.

The race was handicapped and the A3 and A4 fields came together some 13km's from the finish.

The A2 and A1 bunches never bridged the gap to the A4 and A3's, leaving them out of contention at the finish. One rider (UK based junior James King) jumped away from the field in the closing stages to win on his own.

Ex Bray Wheeler Ken Tobin (who now cycles for Swords Cycling Club) and who is currently making a return to racing after a break of ten years, won the bunch sprint for second place. John Spain who is going really well at the moment also contested the sprint and came away with the prize for first unplaced A3. So congratulations to John Spain - a good indicator of more results to come.

Spurred on by the success of Ireland's Martyn Irvine - who won Gold and Silver at the World Championships during the week - some of Bray's junior and under 16 riders were at the track at Sundrive on Saturday for training. While the younger riders were there on Sunday for an afternoon of training and racing.

Bray Wheeler's would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Martyn Irvine on his fantastic achievement on winning the World Champion's rainbow jersey with gold and silver medals at the track world championships in Minsk.

Beginners spins, leisure spins and training spins are ongoing and details can be found on the website


The SFAI National Cup returned to Lamberton last weekend and there were mixed emotions of joy and sorrow as the U-15 boys secured victory over Raheny United FC to advance to the quarter-finals of the competition while the U-13 team suffered defeat at the hands of St Joseph's Boys FC.

There was tremendous support at Lamberton on Saturday afternoon for the SFAI Evans Cup game and the spectators were not to be disappointed. Raheny United FC were unbeaten this season and a tough contest was always promised however it was the Town who had most of the advantage but failed to break the deadlock. Tied at 0-0 after extra time, a thrilling penalty shoot-out ensued with 23 spot-kicks required to secure victory for the home side who can now look forward to a meeting with Malahide United in the quarter-final.

A similar level of support arrived on Sunday lunchtime for the visit of St Joseph's Boys FC to face Breslin's Boys in the SFAI U-13 Troy Cup. The prize on offer was a place in the final eight of the competition and this also proved a highly entertaining game to watch with tremendous performances from both teams.

In the end it was the visitors who were stronger and very well drilled and despite a heroic performance, it was Joey's who made it through. Well done to the boys on all four teams and a big thank you to all who attended the games.

Away from the excitement of the National Cup games, Friday night football retuned to Lamberton with the Leinster Senior League team welcoming Firhouse Clover FC. The team has been hard hit with injury recently and with four of the starting eleven missing, the Town were unfortunate to concede late in the game and narrowly lose out by a single goal.

Several games were called off again this week due to the unexpected snow however on Saturday morning our U-9B team traveled to take on Glencormac United and it was Adam Vanderheijden who struck the winner to secure the points. Well done lads.

The U-11A boys were also on the road in Bray and recorded their second draw in two weeks with Jack Kavanagh scoring a brace against Ardmore Rovers.

Also in Bray were the U-11B team who are on a winning streak at the moment and their latest victims were Wolfe Tone YC. A fantastic display of football saw Shane Parle and Szymon Basinski secure the three points for an excellent result.

Ferndale Park proved the nemesis for the U-15 boys in their local derby against Arklow United. Having failed to put away several chances it was the home side that took the spoils.

Cormac O'Toole was happy this weekend as his U-16A team recorded a 3-2 away victory over Coolboy Rangers with Jack Furlong netting a hat-trick. On Saturday afternoon, the U-17 team welcomed Greystones United to Lamberton and earned a comfortable win through goals from Darren Furlong and Aaron Healy.

There was just one game on Sunday morning as the U-14B team hosted Greystones United and despite not having played a game for quite a while, the boys proved they weren't in any way rusty playing some very strong and positive football to achieve a convincing win. Rokas Kneizys, Ryan McGowan, Sean Dodd, Eoghan Kenny, Reece Jordan and Sean Harte were all on the scoresheet.

Finally, Arklow Town FC would like to congratulate Paul Lacey, Thomas "Snazz" Kavanagh, Tommy Breen, Kenneth O'Neill, Eunan O'Donnell, Katrina Kenny and Mary Meyler who were awarded First Aid Certificates last Saturday following their attendance at the first ever Arklow Town FC Soccer First Aid Course organised and presented by Brian Higgins of Sigma Aldrich Arklow Ltd.

Our club lotto numbers last Thursday were 14, 17, 21 and 24 and the Bonus Ball was 3. There were no jackpot winners and we had two match 3 winners.
