WICKLOW LEAGUE ROUND UP

JIM MCLAUGHLIN PREMIER TROPHY

Newtown United are just one game away for claiming a fifth Jim McLaughlin Premier Trophy on the spin.

That’s after they edged out St. Peter’s FC 2-1 on Thursday last at the Little Bray Community Centre.

Dillon Carthy and Neilly Martin had the Magpies 2-0 up at half time. Chad Ryan pulled one back for the Saints in the second period.

Ashford Rovers will provide Newtown’s opposition as they came from behind to defeated Avonmore FC 2-1.

After a score-less first period at Ballinalea Park on Sunday, the Pat O’Toole Division 1 outfit took the lead after the interval through an Own Goal.

But veteran Danny Byrne slotted in a penalty for Rovers to level the Semi Final before Ruadhan Fallon-Verbruggan snatched a late winner after a defensive error.

YOUTH CUP

Wicklow Town AFC came from behind to get their name in the hat for the Youth Cup Semi Finals.

That’s after the overcame holders Ashford Rovers 2-1 on Saturday at Finlay Park.

Score-less after the first half in the Quarter Final, Tristan O’Toole put the away side ahead.

Jack Colaluca’s stunning free-kick levelled matters before Jack Meaney registered a late winner.

They now join Arklow United, Avonmore FC and Wicklow Rovers in the final four.

DIVISION 3

The race for the Division 3 trophy remains tight after Sunday’s set of fixtures.

Ballywaltrim FC conceded a walk-over to Conary United from their proposed fixture with Conary United at the Ballywaltrim Recreational Park.

It was Ballywaltrim third concession this season which means points have been awarded to Conary, Carnew AFC and Dearg Celtic (six-points) along with Arklow Town and Ashford Rovers (three points) on their remaining fixtures.

Dearg still set the pace at the top of the table. That’s despite losing 3-2 to Shamrock Celtic at Finn Park in Kilcoole.

Kevin Coady, Glen McCarthy and Divisional top marksman Aidan Small scored for the hosts who led 2-0 at the break, John Andrew Kinsella and Andrew Reilly hit back for Dearg.

With Conary still second, Arklow Town consolidated third position by defeating Dargle Rovers 4-2 at the People’s Park in Bray.

In dress rehearsal for their clubs Charlie Byrne Cup Semi Final, Peter Walker (2), Joe Ledwith and Shane Roche netted for the ‘Town. Ross O’ Brien replied twice for Dargle.

Ashford Rovers remain very much in the hunt in fourth position; and games in hand on the top three.

That’s after their 10-0 demolition of Carnew AFC at Ballinalea Park.

Striker Chris Sillery bagged six-goals – all in the first half. Player/boss Paul Conyard made it 7-0 by the interval. Shane Dunne, Leon Murphy and Naoise Treacy were on the score-sheet after the turnaround.

ANDY MCEVOY PREMIER DIVISION

Arklow United gave Glencormac United a walk-over from their scheduled top-flight clash on Sunday at Ferndale Park.

It was also confirmed that Arklow have withdrawn, with Ashford Rovers (six-points) and St. Peter’s (three-points) receiving walk-overs.
