Our under 13's (Pictured above) travelled to Glencormac on Sunday morning knowing a win would crown them division 1 champions. The weather wasn’t great for either teams and Rovers played against the wind in the first half and started very brightly taking an early lead from a Lorcan Sinnott free kick that left the home keeper with no chance. The second goal arrived ten minutes later when great work from Danny Kavanagh down the right caused havoc in the Glencormac penalty area and the ball was turned into the net for an own goal. Rovers kept pressing and thought they had a third only for the woodwork to deny Eoin Kennedy. Half time came with a deserved 2-0 lead for Rovers. The second half started as the first ended with Rovers on the front foot and the woodwork again prevented a third goal. Glencormac did pull a goal back after some sloppy
defending let in their best player on the day to pull a goal back. Tactical changes and substitutions were made and Rovers got their third goal from Brendan Porter. The fourth arrived five minutes later when Danny kavanagh scored a beauty when cutting in from the left and putting the ball into the top corner. Once again the woodwork stopped another Rovers goal and with possibly the last kick of the game the home side pulled one back to leave the final score 4-2 to Rovers. The final whistle went to the delight of the players, coaches and parents and you could see from the celebrations what it meant to this little team. Although plying their trade in division 1 they have lost in 2 premier finals this season so to win this league and finish the season with a trophy meant a lot. Sixteen men of the match out on the pitch today as conditions were not great but a job had to be done and each player done everything they could to get their hands on the league trophy. Congratulations to Trevor, Mark and the lads on an excellent season, one winners and two runners up is a great return for all their hard work. The full Rovers squad is: Eoghan Doyle, Mel Early, Niall Connolly, Sean O'Toole, Dylan Ryan, Kyle Gormley, Charlie Kenny, Ben Doyle, Peter Quinn, Eoin Kennedy, Brendan Porter, Lorcan Sinnott, Charlie Czwalina, Daniel Kavanagh, Georgeie O'Neill and Evan Conyard. They are managed and coached by Trevor Conyard and Mark Kennedy.
