WICKLOW ROVERS AFC CLUB NOTES WEEK ENDING 25th JUNE 2017

The senior ladies gained a good point when they drew with Mourne Celtic 1-1 in the Rocky Road, Mourne came to Wicklow boasting a one hundred percent record and with the girls missing a couple of key players it was always going to be tough. They found themselves 1-0 down at the break but to their credit they battled back in the second half and levelled matters when Niamh O’Brien got on the end of a Rachel Bolger through ball to slot home. A draw was probably just about a fair result with both sides having a couple of chances to claim all three points. On the night Louise Johnson was outstanding for Rovers and was ably assisted by Kellie Ryder.

WICKLOW ROVERS AFC CLUB NOTES WEEK ENDING 18th JUNE 2017

The senior ladies suffered their first defeat of the season when they went down 5-3 away to C.M.H. FC in Dundrum. The girls never really got going in this game and never reached the high standards they have set themselves. They fell behind early on but hit back within a minute when Niamh O’Brien scored a cracker. Two goals in as many minutes just before the break put the home side in the driving seat. The girls pulled one back in the first minute of the second half through Hannah Cox but they then conceded a soft goal to fall 4-2 behind. They reduced the deficit again when Laura O’Brien blasted home to make it 4-3 but any hope of completing the comeback was dashed when the home side scored a fifth to run out 5-3 winners. On the night Louise Johnson and Kellie Ryder were the stand out players for Rovers.
The under 17’s went down 4-2 to Firhouse Carmel, the lads were under strength but gave a good account of themselves none the less. Luca Rampersaud hit his fifteenth goal of the season with Sean Leonard nabbing his first.

WICKLOW ROVERS AFC CLUB NOTES WEEK ENDING 4th JUNE 2017

Our under 17’s defeated Phoenix FC 3-0 in the Niccoli Schuster Cup, Luca Rampersaud made it fourteen for the season, Eli Graham nabbed his third of the campaign with Dean Noble scoring his second of the season in what was an excellent all round team performance from the lads.  
The senior ladies continued their magnificent start to the season when they defeated Rivervalley Rangers 8-0 at Whitegates. The girls are now unbeaten after eight cup and league games winning seven and drawn one. Last Monday in the league they hit their opponents with a clinical display. Rachel ''The Goal Machine'' Bolger smashed home an excellent hat-trick to bring her tally for the season to six. The twin strike force of Niamh O'Brien and Natasha Fitzgerald were not to be outdone as they both weighed in with a brace each to bring their season totals to thirteen and nine respectively. The goal haul was completed by Mel Clarke who was making her competitive debut for the girls. This was an excellent all round team performance from the girls.
The curtain came down on the junior section during the week, our 16A's had two big games to determine the destiny of the premier title. On Tuesday they suffered a 5-3 defeat away to Greystones United with Nathan Sullivan helping himself to a brace with Sean Leonard nabbing the third. They suffered heart break on Thursday night as they didn't claim the point they required to win the premier title losing 1-0 at home to eventual champions Avonmore. The lads controlled the game for long periods but just couldn't breach a strong Avonmore rearguard.  Well done to everyone on a good season. The 16B's had an excellent 6-0 win over Aughrim Rangers on Tuesday to claim the combined under 15/16 challenge cup plate, six different players got on the scoresheet. Ryan Murphy, Joe Geraghty, David McNabb, Nacho Garcia, Ciaran Byrne and Myles Keogh all hit the back of the net in a clinical performance from the lads. Well done to Mark and the lads on a great season picking up two trophies.  On Thursday night the under 13B's claimed runners up spot in the division three league when they defeated St Anthonys 4-2 in Newtown. Leading 2-1 at the break the lads pushed on in the second half to secure the all important win. Tim Hastie fired home a magnificent hat-trick with Luke Dunne adding the other, well done to everyone involved.
