Newtown still in the mix for title after six goal haul against Carnew at Back Alley


The Andy McEvoy Premier Division could go right to the wire as Newtown United defeated Carnew AFC 6-1 at the Back Alley on Sunday.

Evan Moran (3), Dillon Carthy (2) and Shane Doyle accounted for Magpies half dozen tally with Cillian Gilligan replying for the home side.

United have three games remaining – against defending champions Ashford Rover (twice) and Carnew again.

They are currently eight points behind leaders St. Peter’s FC. Victory in all three matches for Newtown would see them take the silverware at the Bray club’s expense.

There are two fixtures set for this week in the Pat O’Toole Division 1.

Champions Avonmore FC are due to host Rathnew AFC on Wednesday in Rathdrum with the Villagers then facing Wicklow Rovers on Sunday at Whitegates.

Rathnew need one win to claim the runners-up berth.

In terms of Division 3, Ashford Rovers were crowned champions on Sunday.

But Arklow Town and Shamrock Celtic are still in contention for fourth place with a position in next season’s Charlie Bishop Cup up for grabs. It is not known if their remaining fixtures will be played.

There is even further confusion and uncertainty still abounds over the (U18) John Tobin Youth Shield.

Leaders Wicklow Town are currently five points clear of second placed Avonmore who they must play in their final outing in the competition.

But the Yellow and Blacks have three fixtures (Ashford Rovers home and away; Wicklow Rovers away) in hand.

With the Leaving Certificate starting last Wednesday, it is unclear when they games will actually be played.
