Carrick Rovers 1-2 Cavan Shamrocks

Carrick Rovers 13's first team played Cavan Shamrocks on Sunday afternoon on the Ballybay Road which turned out to be a cracking match.
Cavan Shamrocks came with an unbeaten run from last season and must of thought this was going to be a game of "how many will we score attitude", ...they were wrong. Even though Carrick let in a sloppy goal..."bad communication lads" and gave away a soft penalty, this Carrick team had the fight and determination to try and get something out of the game. They would not give up. They were playing the League Champions, a League above them from last year.

Carrick Rovers 3-4 Clonmany
SFAI 14 Cup

Clonmany made the long trip down from Donegal on Saturday afternoon to play the Rovers 14's in the S.F.A.I. Cup and the game turned out to be a thrilling encounter for anybody who was privileged to witness it. The visitors tore out of the blocks from the start and this caught the local side cold. The movement of Clonmany's forward line and midfield had Rovers chasing shadows and you would think that the Carrick lads had just got off a bus not the other way around. The Donegal side opened the scoring after 5 minutes when they opened up the Rovers defence on the left and a well paced through ball caught the Carrick backline of Sean McKenna, Cian Maher, Kian Duffy and Mark Tierney square and the quick No.9 raced onto it to coolly slot the ball past Larry McCloskey in the home goals.

Ballyjamesduff 0-2 Carrick Rovers

Hardest game so far for the Rovers 15's away to Ballyjamesduff (our bogey team). Tiarnan McCourt was Captain for the game. From the off we were rushed, the ref asked to start the game early so we had to rush our warm up, which followed into the game. We were at 6's & 7's for the first 10 to 15 min before we settled.
Rovers started to make a number of passes together from both wingers Bendera on the left & Eoghan Duffy on the right, each time we made a break forward the BJD defence cleared it.

Carrick Rovers A 8-2 Monaghan Town

Carrick Rovers 12s hosted Monaghan Town at Inver College on Saturday at 10 o clock and made it 2 wins from 2 in the CMUL. The visitors started brighter and looked the sharper side but the Rovers scored against the run of play when Daniel finished well and within 5 minutes Flynn made it 2-0. The away team responded well and their impressive workrate was rewarded when they deservingly scored twice in quick succession to make it 2-2 as the game approached half-time. Monaghan were winning the fifty fiftys and showing more desire but on the stroke of half-time they found themselves behind again when Stevie finished to the empty net.

Carrick Rovers 14's had local rivals Blayney Rovers as their opposition on Saturday morning on the Inver College pitch. The early exchanges were evenly divided with the visitors giving as good as they got and the home side getting it hard to gain the upper hand. Rovers eventually got to grips with the opposition in midfield and Andrew Moore and Donnach Swinburne began to take control in that part of the pitch. This led to Rovers gaining more possession and the forward line of Jack Lynch, Oisin O'Hanlon, Darren Leegan and Sean Clarke began to create problems for Blayney.

All roads lead to the MDL in Navan this coming Friday when the first ever over 35's League Final takes place with Rovers taking on neighbours Ardee Celtic, Kick Off 7.45pm.

Rovers have really enjoyed their first year back playing together and have put in some excellent performances to finish top of their respective league, loosing only one game along the way.

Monaghan Town 0-9 Carrick Rovers

Rovers' 15's headed to Belgium Park to play Monaghan Town on 12-10-14 kick off 11am. Once again Rovers started sharply closing down the opposition every time they got the ball. Our rewards came early in the game with a goal for Sean Finn in the 5th min, a pass from Bandera and a flick from Liam Og (0-1). 20 mins passed with Rovers now controlling the game, coming close a number of times, it was now time for a few changes.

Carrick Rovers 3-5 Athboy Celtic
MDL John Gorman Motors Div 2

Rovers produced a performance that at times could've been described as "Champagne Football" but unfortunately the fizz was missing at the end of 90 mins when they were again left to rue missed opportunities, regret bad decisions and wonder where they were for a 4 minute period in the second half. Rovers got into their rhythm straight from the start ensuring that Athboy knew they were going to have to be on their own game if they were to take anything from the game.

Killylough visited Carrickmacross on Saturday morning for a CMUL 14's fixture which took place on the fantastic pitch on the Inver College Campus. It was a perfect morning for a game and was played in a great spirit by both sides. Rovers got out of the blocks straight away and raced into an early lead through goals from the Killany duo of Ronan Grimes and Kian Duffy, Duffy's goal coming from a great delivery from a corner from Sean Clarke.

Rovers 15's opened their League campaign with a 0-4 win away to Killylough.
Rovers played with great determination & team work, scoring 4 goals, two of which were a touch of class (1 from the header & the 2nd was a chip from the edge of the box).
Killylough pushed Rovers hard & were unlucky not to score themselves.
Rovers team: Adam Garvey, Jared Wenham, Tiarnan O' Roirdain, Liam Og Murray, Tiarnan McCourt, Bendera, Eoghan Duffy, Dylon Finnegan, Cathal O'Rourke, Dylon McCahey, Sean Finn, Jamie King, Chris Hanratty

Carrick Rovers 0-3 Quay Celtic
Kilmessan Shield

The result doesn't go close to the reality of this Kilmessan Shield tie in which Rovers were the better side for much of the game. After a bright start chances came the way of Lynch, McDaniel and Matthews with the latter opting to shoot at goal after a good run down the left flank when a cross into the box may have been the better option. In defence Gary and Padraig Marron were joined with Carroll and Ward in the centre with the ever-improving McEnaney in goals. Again the instruction from the line was to avoid the long ball out from the keeper in preference to a patient build up via the back four or alternatively through holding midfielder Berg.

Boca Rovers 3-3 Carrick Rovers
Justin's Barber Shop A Res

Carrick Rovers travelled to the MDL Grounds on Saturday afternoon to face league leaders Boca on the astro pitch - 4.30pm ko. Heavy defeats have being suffered by Carrick in the last three encounters with Boca and with the home side enjoying great success in their opening matches Boca were odds-on to continue on their winning run.
Unfortunately for Boca nobody told Carrick the script and after coming back from a 3-1 deficit last week against BlackBull to level 4-4, this Carrick team knew how to battle to the end. However within 15mins Carrick were two nil down and finding it hard to settle but following instructions from player/manager Brendan Kerley started to play all their football out from the back and quickly took a foothold on the game.
