Wolfe Tone heap more misery on Wicklow Rovers

WOLFE TONE CELTIC got their season back on track on Sunday as they heaped more misery on Wicklow Rovers.

The two troubled sides went to war at the Whitegates on Sunday and the Bray side eased their relegation worries as they cruised to a 0-4 success. Their chief marksman Robbie Healy managed two goals against Rovers, with Stephen Martin and winger Paddy O'Brien contributing the other efforts as the Bray club climbed out of seventh spot.

There have also been some interesting developments in the upper echelons of the second tier. Second-placed St. Patrick's A squandered the chance to reclaim top spot at Wicklow Town's expense after being held to a 2-2 draw by Rathnew AFC B in Kilcashel.

Martin Kenny and goal machine Adam Tuke notched for the hosts, with Mick Nolan and Josh Graham on target for the Shamrock Park men.

St. Fergal's AFC were also in action and they ensured that their name was still in the mix for promotion and title glory as they edged out lowly Avonmore FC B by three goals to two at the Ballywaltrim Recreational Centre.

Keith Forde landed a brace for the Saints, whereas Kieran Conway struck a single. David Carter and Ryan Cahill scored for the visitors.
