Rovers big effort falls short

Carrick Rovers 0-2 Monaghan Town Res
MCSL Div 1
Rovers played the first evening fixture of the year on Wednesday evening against title chasing Monaghan Town at Birdy Development Park.  Carrick, who just haven't got 'the rub of the green' this season wanted to make the visitors fight for their title and did so for 75 minutes when tiredness let Monaghan in to score.

Disappointing result in cup for Rovers

Cavan Celtic 4-1 Carrick Rovers
Rovers made the short trip to Kingscourt on Sunday to take on Cavan Celtic in the Sean Woods Cup a competition that has served Rovers well in the past.
Rovers had to use Saturdays Reserve players again as manager Rory McEneaney was yet again let down by 'no shows' on Sunday morning.  With a strong side on paper fielded, Rovers went a goal down early when a lack of concentration at the back let Cavan in for their first and only goal of the half.

Excellent result at last for Rovers

Carrick Rovers 2-2 Blayney Academy
MCSL Div 1

Carrick welcomed local side Blayney to Birdy Development Park on Sunday and got a well deserved point after disappointing results against Cootehill and Cavan Celtic where, despite all their efforts didn't get the results they deserved. Rovers started the sharpest and made sure Blayney, who top the table, were not going to get it all their way.

Three points at last!

Bailie Youths 0-1 Carrick Rovers
MCSL Div 1

Rovers made the short trip to Kingscourt on Sunday last and eventually came away with all the points. On a perfect surface for a passing game, Rovers made their intentions clear from the start when, after about ten minutes Wesley Williams broke clear but when one on one with the keeper he failed to hit the net and passed the ball into the keepers hands.

Rovers go down fighting to strong Cavan side

Cavan Celtic 1-0 Carrick Rovers
MCSL Div 1
 
On Sunday Rovers travelled to Gortakeegan Astro turf to take on a well organised Cavan side. With Rovers needing to bounce back from a demorolising defeat the previous Sunday, they started well and threatened the home sides goal early on with good work down both flanks courtesy of Paddy Finnegan and Shane Rooney. It was all in vain though as they couldn't make the Cavan keeper work.
