Wexford Premier league leaders Forth Celtic were our opponents this morning in another pre season friendly and showed their class with some excellent goals scored throughout and their experience was evident for the duration.
Our young side battled throughout, showing real maturity in frustrating Forth and clawed it back to 3-2 from being 3 down just before half time with excellent finishes from Corcoran and Kelly before Forth Celtic turned on the style in the second period and only for Grace O’Toole on goal it could well have been more.
Good 90 minutes under the belt against quality opposition and lots learned by all.
On to the next game tomorrow evening against the Kilkenny Interleague side in Evergreen FC grounds.
Our young ladies side travelled to rain soaked Cahir on Sunday evening and were not to be put off by the non stop down pour.
After a cagey first half with both sides jostling for the breakthrough, it was Cahir Park who took an early lead with a shot from distance that skidded off the surface. Back came the girls and dominated with plenty chances created with goals coming from Ella Brennan, Emily Blackmore and Sommer Grant to send everyone home happy.
Good run out for all 17 on duty with valuable experience gained by our younger girls. Thanks to Cahir Park for hosting us in their fabulous facilities.
U14 A Girls We made the short spin yesterday up to Piltown to play the league contenders on their home turf.
Given Piltowns current good form we expected it to be a hard game and sure enough Piltown came at us strong from the start. Piltowns first goal came not long into the game with goal #2 coming later in the first half… our girls battled hard to prevent the consistent attack from Piltown and also managed to break out to attack themselves.
The second half was a similar story with both sets of players pushing hard. Piltown got two more for their persistence in the second half to bring the score to finish at 4-0 to the home side.
While it wasn’t our day to make a mark, it was definitely a step the right direction for this team.
Big thanks to the Piltown coaches, team & referee for nice morning of football
167 headed into the weekend hoping for glory, unfortunately there was a few surprise results with Liverpool stumbling against Bournemouth, the mighty Southampton were held against an out of form Man United and a few draws in the mix cost others.
36 dropped because of Liverpool slipping , 61 decided to lump on Man Utd and 18 others dropped with them giving a total of 115 gone this week and 52 left standing. There will be no fixtures this week du

A flat first half was to prove costly for this side who had gone 6 games unbeaten up until today.
A scrappy goal midway through the half saw Villa take the lead and we didn’t really trouble the home keeper in the first half.
Second half was a different story with the boys dominating and Villa relying on the break.
The post was to stop Ryan Sutton equalising and Jack Twomey rattled the crossbar with a bullet header to deny us while we had numerous corners with no luck and unfortunately Villa broke in the last minute to grab the three points.
