Wicklow Rovers 2 Glencormac 2
Wicklow Rovers  Kindly sponsored by PHONE PULSE hosted Glencormac in the Wicklow league this afternoon on a brilliant day for football. It was the first league fixture for both teams since the Covid 19 lockdown so both teams were looking forward to a cracking game. The home team started the stronger and a midfield trio of Dean Noble, Alan Power and Jack Crowley controlled the game excellently with a high tempo press and intelligent possession football. This enabled Rovers to create some great chances with Luca Rampersaud going close on a number of occasions. Glencormac were completely  over run and the Wicklow team made them pay when Jenson O'Connor-Cox slotted home nicely from the corner of the box with a curling right footed effort. Wicklow deserved more but went into half time 1-0 up. The second have started with more of the same and Matthew Traynor volleyed home after a Wicklow corner wasn't cleared effectively to make it 2-0. Glencormac then decided to push numbers up the pitch and eventually it paid off as a well worked corner routine ended in a  nicely taken finish to make it 2-1. Wicklow kept playing football however with Jamie Power and James Lang both having great chances to kill the game after some quick counter attacking football. Alan Power who was dominant in midfield all game also narrowly missed when he forced the keeper into a fine save from a flying bicycle kick. It was Glencormac however who leveled the game after a coming together on the edge of the box resulted in a free kick which was expertly slotted home. The points were shared at the final whistle as it finished 2-2. Thank you to Andy Bishop and his team for a great game and also for following all COVID protocols.
