Due to unforeseen circumstances (and probably the weather), the Soccer Marathon scheduled for Sunday is CANCELLED and will be rescheduled shortly.
Work commenced this week on spectator fencing around the main pitch with Watmór Construction on site, the break in weather during the week cost us a couple of days and works will not finish until early next week.
We hosted Munster Junior Cup finalists on Wednesday evening and we’re left with a mountain to climb early on when two very obvious offside calls were ignored.
Dungarvan showed their class throughout the first half and scored two very good goals. Second saw our girls playing for pride and they created many chances throughout with the post and crossbar preventing a couple of goals before Becky Connaughton hung up a good free kick.
A couple of late goals were put away by Dungarvan before time was called.
The very best of luck to Dungarvan United in this Sunday’s Munster Junior Cup Final against Wilton United of Cork.
We’d also like to wish Breska Rovers the best of luck in the Munster Shield Final on Sunday, Breska Rovers beat us in a close encounter in the last 16 in a very close game in Suir Crescent.
Next Sunday (July 30th) at the third time of asking, we will hold our Soccer Marathon in Suir Cresent from 2-5.30 followed by the presentation of our end of season awards.
Wild Willow Coffee Trailer will be on site as well as a BBQ overseen by our two club chefs.
We would like to thank all of the people to date who have contributed sponsorship via the link and urge all to share the link with friends and family that might support our club.
Looking forward to seeing you all next Sunday.
A tough evening at the office for this young group who held tight for 30 minutes but succumbed to a number of tidy finishes from Benfica before the break.
Second half saw a bit of an improvement for us but sloppy defending and good finishing saw the game out with a landslide victory for the league leaders.
A very flat disjointed display saw Park Rangers deservedly scoop all three points on offer this evening. Park Rangers took the lead on 15 minutes when a ball deceived a number of defenders and a cross/shot ended up in the back of the net.
We equalised on the half hour mark when Emily Blackmore tucked away a through ball from Sommer Grant.
Plenty chances came our way but unfortunately no goals. A soft free saw Park Rangers take the lead right on half time. Second half saw a number of chances come and go for both sides but no killer instinct.
We will be holding our AGM on Friday 21st of July in Suir Crescent at 7.30. We are always looking for new people to get involved with the club, be it in admin, coaching or helping around the ground. All are welcome to attend.
Our young ladies side look to build on last week’s win when they entertain Park Rangers in Suir Crescent tomorrow evening, kick off is 7pm and the girls would love as much support as possible.
Due to the weather forecast for Saturday, we have decided to cancel our Soccer Marathon and end of season awards presentation and will reschedule in due course.
Apologies for any inconvenience and we hope to see you all soon.
