Our under 13's [pictured above] made the short trip to Tullylusk to take on Avonmore in the Jako cup semi final on Saturday morning. In terrible weather conditions this was going to be a tough match and from the kick off our lads meant business. Danny Kavanagh, Charlie Czwalina along with Lorcan Sinnott all going close early on. Half time came with no score and it took 10 minutes into the second half before the deadlock was broken. Substitute Georgie O'Neill jinked his way around four players before being upended in the box. Lorcan Sinnott was on hand to calmly slot the resulting penalty to the net and give Rovers a deserved lead. Brendan Porter and Eoin Kennedy both struck the post but Rovers couldn’t get the all important second goal to kill the game off. Avonmore responded with 5 minutes to go. A free kick was parried by keeper Eoghan Doyle and an Avonmore player was on hand to slot the rebound for the equaliser. Extra time came and went. Danny Kavanagh twice and Eoin Kennedy both going close in the latter stages but the winner could not be found. Onto penalties! Lorcan Sinnott, Charlie Czwalina, Eoin Kennedy, Danny Kavanagh slotted the first four penalties home. In between goalkeeper and man of the match today Eoghan Doyle made a great save to leave Sean O'Toole with the chance to book his team a place in the final and the big defender duly obliged to send the away team and supporters wild in what was a thoroughly deserved winning performance. A great result considering the weather but this little team have shown throughout this season a fantastic attitude and are getting their just rewards.

Teams of 2019
The weekend saw round 4 of our Last Man Standing competition take place, going into round four 31 players were harbouring hopes of claiming the €500 prize and of course the bragging rights of been named Last Man Champion. Unfortunately for 13 players it wasn’t to be as they made their exit from the competition. The biggest casualties were the 10 players who pinned their hopes on Tottenham and as has been the case a lot this season they let down their supporters only managing a 1-1 stalemate at home with Sheffield United. In the Friday night game Norwich went down 2-0 at home to Watford resulting with a single player going out. Another player made their exit when their selection Bournemouth lost 2-1 away to Newcastle. One more player failed to make round 5 when their choice West Ham were well beaten by Burnley losing 3-0. There were a happy 18 players who saw their teams come up trumps to book their places in round five. Manchester United’s 3-1 victory over Brighton at Old Trafford saw 11 players make it through. An impressive 2-0 win for Leicester over Arsenal helped 4 players ease their way into round five while Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace saw a further 2 players progress to the next round. Finally 1 player completed the line up for round 5 when their selection Wolves saw off neighbours Aston Villa winning 2-1. There is no Last Man Standing competition next weekend due to the international break. Fixtures for round 5 will be sent out to all remaining 18 players next weekend. We wish all remaining 18 players the very best of luck in the remainder of the competition and once again we thank everyone who took part in our competition, your continuous support is very much appreciated by everyone at the club.
