The search for the Community Games U12 soccer champions came to a close on Monday evening last in Gortakeegan with Carrick taking on Tydavnet in this years final. Carrick captained by Oisin O’Hanlon enjoyed a strong campaign in qualifying for the final with five good wins under their belt but took nothing for granted against their formidable opponents who in turn were getting better with every match.
Carrick had a great victory in the Community Games final in Gortakeegan on Tuesday evening last. It was a raw evening but a sweet result. The managers Fintan Swinburne and Mark Mc Nulty have nurtured this squad and it is now off to the Ulster Finals!
No shortage of net rattling for Rovers this last couple of outings but unfortunately we were the wrong side of the verdict on Thursday night under lights in Dundalk. Well done to Woodview who hit a never to be forgotten finish but let’s not forget our own men.
The 2nd Annual " John Giles Walk of Dreams ", takes place on the 7th of May. This year there is a walk being held in Monaghan Town and we are trying to encourage as many of our players and their Relatives to represent Carrick Rovers and the Soccer Community on this walk. Sponsorship cards are at present being distributed and all monies received will be greatly appreciated. Further details will be published nearer the event.
Over the last number of weeks the club has hosted a hugely successful Soccer Sisters series. This was established under the guidance of FAI Regional Development Officer for Monaghan, John Crudden. With up to 40 girls of different ages attending the sessions at 5 o'clock on Friday evenings in the Phoenix Centre. The girls are being coached in the principles of Soccer by very willing and able coaches Barry Woods and Wayne Kerley with the help of 2 lady coaches Sarah Cunningham and Joanne Culleton. When the 8 week sessions finish it is hoped that we will be able to get a number of girls teams involved in the proposed " Don't X the Line " blitzes that will run during the Summer. If anybody was willing to get involved and help with these girls you can contact the following number.

Wednesday last saw the finals of the Astro League played in Gortakeegan with a big crowd in attendance to see Celtic and Rovers take on strong opposition Blaney Rovers and Monaghan Utd respectively. Both Carrick Teams didn’t disappoint with two great wins to finish the season on a high.
