Wicklow Rovers over 40's entertained their counterparts and friends from Arklow Town last Saturday night at Whitegates in aid of Parkinsons Ireland. After a closely fought encounter the Town ran out narrow 1-0 winners to gain revenge for last years defeat. The decisive goal came on the stroke of half time in what was a very exciting game. With ten minutes remaining the floodlights failed, bringing a premature end to the match. Rumour has it that Rovers scored at the point the lights  went out but the referee was having none of it. Also it was mentioned that a mystery person had gone into Paddy Powers and laid a bet on Arklow Town to win 1-0 and this fuelled speculation that the mystery person switched the lights off. Anyway as per rules the result stands at the time of abandonment, which means Arklow Town take the trophy back down the N11. A big thanks to the heros of the past from Wicklow Rovers and Arklow Town for taking part in this game which was for a worthy cause. A big thanks to the officials on the day Paul O'Brien, Tony [Butch] Doran and Willie O'Brien who officiated the game so well and donated €100 to Parkinsons Ireland. Thanks also to Denise O'Shea who kindly offered her services in her role as physio to both sides, thanks Denise. A massive thanks to all the people from Arklow and Wicklow who came out to cheer the teams on while also supporting the charity. Finally a big thanks to everyone for organising the event. Everyone went back to Ernies to sooth the aching limbs and relive the memories of past years when the limbs didn't ache as much. Well done everyone.

Joint Winner
Darren Coffey

Our Last Man Standing competition finally came to an end, after eleven weeks of expert predictions from our four remaining players it finally ended at the weekend. Greg Dunne, Darren Coffey, Gail Dunne and Jimmy Nolan all went into round eleven harbouring hopes of claiming the title of Last Man Standing champion and the €500 prize. Darren went with Leicester while Greg, Gail and Jimmy selected Watford, Leicester went down 3-0 at home to Crystal Palace with Watford losing 4-1 at home to Huddersfield. What this meant as per competition rules is the lads would share the prize fund as all remaining players selections lost in the same round. All four remaining players will receive €125 each, congratulations to Greg, Darren, Gail and Jimmy. Again the club would like to thank everyone for supporting our Last Man Standing competition, your continuous support is very much appreciated. Finally a big thanks goes to Charlie Mitchell who done a great job on running the competition, well done Charlie and thank you for all your work.
