Under 16 League 2021/22

Killeshin AFC   0,  St Patrick’s Boys AFC  1
Saturday 11 September 2021  Quakers Field, Killeshin

Killeshin made a positive start and put pressure on the visitors early on. Sean Dowling saw his shot just wide of the mark on 4 minutes. Dowling whipped in a corner on 7 minutes but Jack Brennan’s effort was saved. Pats first attack caused some panic in the Killeshin rear-guard resulting in a corner which was cleared by Patrick Fitzgerald. Killeshin shared possession with Pats over the next 20 minutes with neither creating any clear-cut opportunity until Riogan Doran shot just wide of the post in the 32nd minute. 

On 44 minutes Killeshin counter-attacked from a Pats corner when Killian McCutcheon picked out Michael Dooley who played a penetrative ball for Riogan Doran but the Pats keeper made a brilliant save. Pats gained some momentum and a poor clearance from the Killeshin defence saw Charlie McNamara squeeze his shot under Ben Fitzgerald in the Killeshin goal on the 56th minute. Killeshin pushed on and good build-up play between Tristan Owens, Callum Hayden and Riogan Doran down the right resulted in Zach Owens almost finishing Doran’s cross.

In the 75th minute Killian McCutcheon released Doran down the right again but once more he was denied by the Pat’s keeper. As Killeshin pushed for the equaliser they left spaces in behind but Eoin Pender, Shane McQuire, Tristan Owens and Sean McDonald were solid in defence. 

Pats held out for the win by the smallest of margins and Killeshin would consider themselves unfortunate not to get something from the game.

A super performance by All Killeshin players with Patrick Fitzgerald and Pauric Moran deserving special mentions.

Under 14 League 2021/22

Hanover Harps AFC   5,  St Joseph’s AFC  0
Saturday 11 September 2021  The Plots (Hanover Harps)

It was a sunny day at The Plots where Hanover welcomed St Joseph’s. Both teams started off strong, it took 11 mins for the first goal to materialize when Axel O Rock chipped the ball over the keeper’s head. Shortly afterward TJ Brennan with another chip found the back of the St Joseph’s net for Hanover’s second goal.
St Josephs put pressure on the Hanover defence which stood strong and managed to keep Joeys at bay until the whistle blew for half time with the score reading 2-0 in Hanover’s favour.

The second half started with St Joseph’s putting on pressure but they couldn’t find the back of the Hanover net. Hanover’s Gael O Rock played a great through ball to TJ Brennan whose shot just missed the post. Shortly after that Axel O Rock crossed the ball which saw St Joseph’s no 5 deflect it to the back of the net for 3-0 to the home side.
The game seemed to even out and St Joseph’s No 2 Luke Byrne took a shot which saw the ball go just past the post. Jake Burke Cunningham latched onto a through ball from Leon Fitzgerald which saw him one on one with the keeper to score a well taken goal. In the dying minutes of the game TJ Brennan got his head to a great ball crossed by Gael O Rock to make it 5-0 to Hanover at the final whistle.
 
Best for Hanover were Leon Fitzgerald, TJ Brennan, Axel O Rock

Best for St Joseph’s were Luke Byrne, Walter Webb, Jamie Doyle

Under 14 League 2021/22

Slaney Rovers AFC   2,  St Patrick’s Boys AFC  6
Saturday 11 September 2021  Rathvilly behind graveyard (Slaney Rovers

Despite conceding three early scores in this home game to St Patricks Boys, the Rovers team fought hard to get back into the game and were rewarded when Taylor Ryan finished well following a cross from Callum Brennan on the right wing to bring them back in with a fighting chance at 1-3. However a very strong Pats side scored three more goals and although Slaney’s Jack Corcoran just before half-time went on a solo run and fired home to make the score 2-6 the game was beyond their reach as St Pats ran out clear winners.

Best for Slaney were: Sean Barrett, Jack Lyons and Paul Kehoe.

Best for the visitors: Eanar Durcan,  Mark Buggy, Callum O Brien Murphy.  

Under 14 League 2021/22

Vale Wanderers AFC   1,  Burrin Celtic AFC  6
Saturday 11 September 2021  Superbowl Leighlinbridge (Vale Wanderers)


Great morning to be back in The Superbowl and everybody looking forward to the season ahead after such a long time away from the game. A superior Burrin Celtic team took all three points from this fixture. The away side started strongly and went ahead through Matthew Drought in the 5th minute. Burrin Celtic kept pushing for a second goal but Vale’s keeper kept the score as it was with some fine saves. Celtic’s pressure eventually told though and they went into half time 3 nil up with Freddie Gibson and Matthew Drought scoring. 


Highlight of Vales game was a well-placed free kick from Alan Fitzgerald to give them their only goal of the game. Celtic were too strong though and with further goals from Edward O’Byrne and Evan Kelliher they ran out easy winners. 


Best for Vale Wanderers were Adam Dowling and Daniel Brennan on the day.

Best for Burrin Celtic were Noah Cullen, Charlie Clarke and Edward O’Byrne.

Goal-scorer for Vale Wanderers : Alan Fitzgerald

Goalscorers for Burrin Celtic Ed O Byrne, Evan Kelleher, Matthew Drought, Freddie Gibbson and Noah Cullen.

U13 Grading Pool 1

New Oak Boys AFC   7,  St Joseph’s AFC  0
Saturday 11 September 2021  Burrin Rd Carlow (New Oak Boys)

In this opening round of fixtures of the U13 grading competition New Oak Boys ran out dominant winners over a gallant St. Joseph’s side with a comprehensive win. Played in lovely conditions at the Burrin Road, New Oak Boys pressed and pressured the St. Joseph’s defence right from the start. Darragh Casey led by example from the middle of the field with a top class display of chasing, tackling and attacking, getting himself on the scoresheet with a beautiful headed goal in the first half. His partner Cormac Murphy also with a great display in midfield got himself a hat-trick, a beautifully taken free kick in the second half in the right-hand corner of the net being the pick of the bunch. Out on the wing Jamie Doody caused the St. Joseph’s defence no end of bother all morning with his quick running and speedy drives, also getting himself on the score-sheet in the process. The St. Joseph’s goalkeeper pulling off a number of fine saves in the first half has to be acknowledged here also. Kaylem Geogehgan playing at right back with a well taken goal in the second half. Up front Kyle Kinsella tormented the St Joseph’s defence throughout the game with several powerful strikes also getting his name on the score-sheet.

New Oak Boys had a very strong all-round display and will be looking to build on this result for the future. Other players to impress for the team on the day were Ethan Hutton, Daniel Nolan in defence, Siobhan Sinnots silky ball skills and powerful running and Leigh Slattery all contributing to a well-deserved win.

Hanover Harps AFC   7,  Baltinglass Town AFC  1
Saturday 11 September 2021  The Plots (Hanover Harps)

Hanover Harps started off well in the first half with a goal from Ronan Dooley in the 4th minute setting the scene for what was to come. Some great defending by Baltinglass throughout the whole match meant that the Hanover team did not have things all their own way. Hanover were very strong in both halves with some excellent team moves from back to front leading to some cracking goals, but despite this Baltinglass stuck to their task giving the home side some very dodgy moments and were very unlucky at times not to register

some scores which their battling performance certainly deserved. Their all-round team performance eventually paid off in the second half with an excellent goal of their own. Their goalie Jack Peter Nolan played a blinder for them. Hanover finished very strong with more goals and finished the game the deserving winners.

Goal scorers for Hanover Harps: Timmy Adeleye, Ronan Dooley, Charlie McHugh, Joe Dermody and Harry O’Donoghue.

Best for Hanover Harps: Ronan Dooley, Gavin McDermott & Timmy Adeleye.

Best for Baltinglass Jack Peter Nolan, Jack ó Brien & Marvin Shiku

Burrin Celtic AFC   0,  Bagenalstown AFC  4
Saturday 11 September 2021  The Valley Ballon (Burrin Celtic)

Burrin Celtic and Bagenalstown served up a highly entertaining opening game to the U13 season. Bagenalstown took the lead midway through the first half and might have been further ahead at the break but for some superb goalkeeping by Burrin Celtic’s Shane McCaffrey. Likewise Bagenalstown’s keeper brought off a top class save to deny Burrin Celtic an equaliser midway through the second half.
The game was very much in the balance until Burrin Celtic’s push for an equaliser left them exposed at the back and Bagenalstown took full advantage of this scoring three more goals to run out convincing winners.
Great credit is due to all players for playing their part in this competitive and enjoyable game.

U12 Grading Pool 1

Hanover Harps AFC   2,  New Oak Boys AFC  1
Saturday 11 September 2021  The Plots (Hanover Harps)

Hanover Harps Under12s began their season at home to a strong New Oak side who started off on the front foot and applied lots of early pressure. The young hoops’ defense stood firm and weathered the early storm. As the game progressed, Hanover settled and went close with a curling effort almost finding the top corner with a cut-in and shot from Diarmuid Redmond.
Hanover kept this pressure up and midway through the half, a lovely through ball from Mael O Rock found the run of Nathaniel Jakubiec who lobbed the on-rushing New Oak keeper to make the score 1-0 to the home side. However, this was short lived as New Oak levelled with a finely struck effort from Oisin Rice. Before half time Hanover took advantage from a Shay O Grady corner kick which resulted in a New Oak own goal.

Hanover made wholesale changes for a second half that saw little in the way of clear cut chances for the home team, Diarmuid Redmond, Nathaniel Jakubiec and Cian Howard getting the best of the chances. As the match drew to a close, Hanover’s defense was tested constantly but held firm, with heroics from Connor Wall, goalkeeper Anthony Brennan, and a Man of the Match performance from Joe McDermot to run out 2-1 winners.

U12 Grading Pool 2

Slaney Rovers AFC   3,  St Joseph’s AFC  4
Saturday 11 September 2021  Rathvilly behind graveyard (Slaney Rovers

After conceding an early goal on five minutes to St Josephs, Slaney’s Kristen Doyle slipped a clever ball in behind the Saints backline to put Kallen McCabe in the clear to score the equaliser. Another super finish from McCabe made it 2-1 to Slaney at half-time.

After the restart two quick early goals put St Josephs in the driving seat and followed that up later with a fourth. However all credit to Slaney who fought back with Kallen McCabe adding two more goals to his earlier one to give him a deserved hat-trick. Unfortunately for Rovers they could not get the fourth one to equalise and the game finished 3-4 to St Josephs.

Goal scorers for St Josephs were Buddy McMahon, Eoin Fitzharris and a brace from Michael Breen.

In an end-to-end game Timmy Jackson, Will Darcy and Kristen Doyle starred for Rovers while Niall Fenely and Kevin Farrell stood out for the Saints. 

U14 Kennedy Cup Group C 2021

Wexford        2        Carlow        0

Sunday 11 September 2021    Curracloe United Ground, Wexford

Wexford and Carlow met in the first match in this season’s Kennedy Cup at Curracloe Utd’s fine grounds and after a hectic opening, close game, with both sides playing the long ball, Wexford found their feet first and put the Carlow defence under some pressure, although it was end to end stuff, as Carlow gave as good as they got.

Wicklow’s Tom Funge won the ball from Brian Byrne and put in an early cross, which was punched clear by Ewan Breen for a corner, which was subsequently cleared and straight after another cross from Wexford’s Tom Funge into his team-mate Callum Fowler was well caught by Ewan Breen.

Yet another cross by Tom Funge found Jack Conneely, but yet again Ewan Breen made a fine save, as Wexford put Carlow under severe pressure.

Carlow’s main striker, Ian Craddock went wide and crossed into Kyle O’Reilly who hit the ball first time, but it went well wide, asCarlow started to come into the game.

Carlow then put a good move together with some good play between Aoife Kelly, Ian Craddock, Blake Rice and Kyle O’Reilly, But the ultimate shot went well wide.

Wexford’s Tom Funge and Cian O’Dowd were showing best for Wexford, but some strong defending by the Carlow defence, was preventing a a Wexford score.

A great run by Ian Craddock saw his shot put out for a corner which Blake Rice took, the ball fell to Aoife Kelly who shot over from 30 yards out, as Carlow started to work their way into the game.

Carlow won a couple of free kicks but they didn’t trouble Wexford’s fine keeper William Gaul who looked well assured with his handling and at this stage Carlow were beginning to stamp their authority on the game, as half-time with the game scoreless.

One of the Carlow defenders went into a tackle and the referee made a game changing decision, as he brandished a straight red card and Carlow had to play for the rest of the half, with only ten players.

Just after this, Wexford won a corner and the ball bobbled around in the Carlow area and one shot from about ten yards was blocked, but the ball was pounced on by Wexford’s Luke Homan and swept into the net for a 1-0 lead.

Just after that Wexford won a corner when their player Jack Conneely rose above everybody to head the ball, into the roof of the net from five yards out, to make the score 2-0.

Wexford then started to pressurize Carlow as they were pulled around the pitch as Wexford took full advantage of their extra player but from a long free-kick, Kyle O’Reilly hooked a shot just wide, with Wexford’s goalie William Gaul well beaten.

Ian Craddock put Mark Buggy through and he hit a well-struck shot that William Gaul saved easily and it ended up not being Carlow’s day.

Best for Carlow were Ennae Byrne and Eoin Mulhall who were stalwarts in defence, Aoife Kelly and Kyle O’Reilly who worked their socks off in midfield, and Ian Craddock, who worked tirelessly leading the line.
