Saints sweating St Nick's arrival

SAINTS FC will be sweating as St. Nicholas comes to town. The Wexford side has been on cruise control all season long as they sat unchallenged in top spot but suddenly they find themselves skating on thin ice.

A visit to Aughrim proved to be their undoing as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Aughrim Rangers. Chris Sheridan did his best to keep his side's momentum going as he struck a double for the visitors but efforts from Liam Keenan and Darren Thompson earned the hosts a share of the spoils.

And the men from the Showgrounds have now seen their lead chopped to a single point due to Seaview Wanderers' facile 4-1 win over Conary United. Philip Ormonde played a starring role for the Arklow side as he registered a two goal haul. Joe Somers and Mark O'Regan managed singles for the former Thomas Scott Cup champions.

Wanderers will have to share second spot with Glencormac United should the Kilmacanogue side win their two games in hand and judging by their most recent result, that is a very strong possibility. The Glens took on Arklow Celtic B at Ryder's Field and romped to a 5-1 win to leave the Arklow side rooted to the foot of the table.

Emmett Burke (2), Colm Nolan, Cian McGoldrick and Ian Devlin notched for United. A full report of this match is available elsewhere in today's Bray & Wicklow People.
