Carrick Rovers 2-1 Bailieborough Celtic

Bailieborough Celtic were the opponents for Carrick Rovers 18's on Friday evening for an CMUL encounter at John Sherlock Park in Cootehill. Both sides were level on points at the top of the table and this was always going to be a close affair going on the earlier game between the sides and this proved to be the case again. Rovers had the better of the early exchanges with the frontline of Padraig Marron, Daniel McDonald and Steven Lynagh giving B'Boro's defence a tough time with their movement and link up play. Paddy Larney playing just of them was giving good support and the pairing of Stephen Cunningham and Rob Berg in midfield had their hands full in what turned out to be a terrific battle with the B'Boro duo.

Cavan Shamrocks 5-3 Carrick Rovers

Carrick Rovers 13's made the long trip to Cavan Town on Sunday morning to play undefeated League leaders Cavan Shamrocks Lions on the Astroturf at Tullymongan. This was always going to be a tough encounter and conditions on the day didn't help, with a stiff breeze blowing down the pitch. Rovers started slowly even with the advantage of the breeze and the home team settled much earlier and had Rovers on the back foot early on. The Cavan midfield were dominating play and had the Carrick backline of Sean McKenna, Oisin McEntee, Kian Duffy and Mark Tierney stretched to cover the movement of the lively Shamrock's forwards. Larry McCloskey in goals had to be alert and on his toes to race out and clear the danger on a few occasions.

Skryne Tara 4-4 Carrick Rovers
Saturday 11th January marked a return to league action for Carrick Rovers 16's when they made the trip to Meath to face a team who had beaten them 5-1 in the same tie last season. Rovers had to field a team missing two key defenders and there had to be a few alterations made when another defender was injured during warm up.
Skryne Tara made the brighter start and took a 1-0 lead after ten minutes.

Carrick Rovers 5-0 Clones Town

Carrick Rovers 18's side continued their impressive start to the CMUL season when they overcame a valiant Clones side on Friday evening in John Sherlock Park in Cootehill. The home side opened the scoring after the 1st real attacking move on 6 minutes. Stephen Cunningham and Patrick Larney traded passes in midfield before Larney picked out Steven Lynagh wide on the right. The winger slipped past 2 Clones players before sliding a pass into Daniel McDonald's feet. McDonald took a couple of touches to set himself up for a shot but just as he was about to shoot, his standing foot was taken away for a penalty.

Cavan Celtic 0-2 Carrick Rovers

Carrick Rovers 18's travelled to the Astro Park in Cavan Town on Sunday evening to play local side Cavan Celtic in another CMUL fixture. Rovers were fresh of a morale boosting victory against Bailieborough, in their previous outing and were looking to keep their unbeaten run in the League going. The game was play in blustery conditions and Carrick were playing into a strong breeze in the 1st half. This meant that they had to keep the ball on the ground and moving as the home side set out their stall early on that they weren't going to give Rovers any time on the ball. Rovers settled into the game and Rob Berg and Padraig Marron in the middle of the field began to get to grips with their opponents and Patrick Larney and Daniel McDonald up front gave Rovers a good platform to build on. The first real chance at goal fell to Cavan Celtic in the 26th minute when a ball was cleared from danger by David Wilson and as the ball fell some 35 yards from the Rovers goal a Cavan player let fly with a vicious shot that the wind help to travel. It looked destined for the roof of the net but Mark Kieran in the Rovers goal raised a strong hand up to lift the ball over the crossbar.

Ballyjamesduff 1-4 Carrick Rovers

Carrick Rovers 13's squad had an early start on Sunday when they had to make the long trip to BallyJamesDuff for a 10 o'clock start. The home side where sitting above Rovers in the table before kick-off and this was always going to be a tough task to get something out of this game. Despite their early alarm call and the long trip Carrick got out of the blocks from the start with Ethan O'Gorman and Cian Maher in the central midfield roles, setting the tone with some powerful tackling and pressing of the ball and this inspired the rest of the team. The first real chance came to Rovers, who were playing with a stiff breeze at their backs. A through ball by O'Gorman set Donnach Swinburne away but his shot flashed wide of the upright. The next effort was fashioned on the left wing when Mark Tierney released Sean Clarke down the wing and he raced forward before picking out Oisin O'Hanlon but again the target was missed.

Bailieborough 2-3 Carrick Rovers

Carrick Rovers 18's renewed an old rivalry from their NECSL days on Wednesday evening when they travelled to The Vale in Bailieborough to play the local side in a CMUL League match. Played under lights on the fantastic sand based pitch both sides to their credit tried to play attractive football, keeping the ball on the ground. Rovers had the lions share of possession in the 1st half and opened the scoring in the 34th minute after great approach work involving Stephen Cunningham, Daniel McDonald and Patrick Larney ended up with a corner kick. Rovers had threaten from previous corner kicks to no avail but this time Cian Matthews drove a fantastic ball right in under the crossbar and Stephen Lynagh got the slightest of touches in front of the keeper to guide the ball home.

Carrick Rovers 8-0 Cootehill Harps

Carrick Rovers 14's side had a chance to revenge an earlier defeat in the CMUL League on Saturday when they welcomed a high flying Cootehill side to the Convent Lands. Earlier in the season the away side had inflicted a sore defeat to this Rovers team and they had a point to prove. Short our regular keeper, Robert McCloskey stood between the posts when asked and really gave a solid display throughout. The early stages were evenly contested with both sides giving as good as they got but the in the 16th minute an interception by Tadg Callaghan in midfield put Rovers on the front foot and he picked out Dylan McCahey on the centre spot. His first time pass in behind the Cootehill defence invited Jarlath McGahon to drive forward and he raced away from his marker before coolly slotting the ball low past the keeper to the back of the net for his 1st goal for the Club.

Carrick Rovers are holding a Quiz and Social Night this Friday in The Vally Lodge @ 9pm. Your support would be very much appreciated.

Cavan Shamrocks 0-1 Carrick Rovers

Carrick Rovers 14's continued their recent good run when the travelled to Cavan Town on Saturday morning to play Cavan Shamrocks on the Astro-turf at Tullymungan. Rovers started in a blaze stringing together some free flowing football moves that had The Shamrock's lads chasing shadows early on. Jared Wenham and Jamie King in midfield were controlling thigs from there and getting the forward line of Dylan McCahey, Dillon Carolan, Tiarnan O'Riordain and Cillian Garland involved early on. They continued in this fashion for the opening 15 minutes or so but only had a tame effort from O'Riordain to show for it.
