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.

Carrick Rovers 13's started their season with an S.F.A.I. Cup trip to fellow C.M.U.L side BallyJamesDuff on Saturday morning. Rovers started sharply and almost took the lead after 11 minutes when Oisin O'Hanlon threaded a delightful through ball into Ronan Grimes path but the striker was unable to beat the keeper. Again after 16 minutes Carrick created a glorious chance to open their account when Donnach Swinburne sprayed the ball wide to Sean Clarke on the left and the winger flashed a great across the 6 yard box but O'Hanlon couldn't get enough on the ball to force it home.

Carrick Rovers 6-2 Castlefin Celtic
SFAI 15 Cup

Carrick Rovers opened their season on Sunday at home to Castlefin Celtic from Donegal in the SFAI Cup. Rovers tipped off and started well, after 2 mins Rovers were 1 up from a great move which Jack McMahon finished from 20 yards out into the top left corner. After 4 mins Rovers were 2 up when Benderas crossed the ball in from the right to that man again Jack who kicked a low powerful ball to the right - another great goal, what a start.

Carrick Rovers 4-2 Clonmany Shamrocks
SFAI 12 Cup 

Carrick Rovers 12s kicked off their season on Saturday at 2 o'clock in the sunshine on the Ballybay Road in the SFAI Cup against Clonmany Shamrocks. Clonmany made the long journey south in confident mood, having recently won the league title in the Inishowen Youth and Schoolboys League. Rovers went into the match on the back of a mixed pre-season. They had some decent performances in the Kells Blackwater Tournament, including a 2-0 semi-final defeat to a strong Mullingar Athletic side. However they picked up their first medals of the season, when they won the third place match 3-0 against a good Wicklow Rovers side. They suffered 3-0 and 5-1 defeats against Crumlin United and Malahide United in the Pennisula Cup. There was a lot of hard work put in on the training ground and in numerous friendly matches after this, and the lads were looking forward to kicking off the new season.

SFAI 12 Cup

Trim Town 1-1 Carrick Rovers
MDL John Gorman Motors Div 2
Rovers were on their travels for the fourth game in a row when taking on second placed Trim Town. After a bright start and under the clear instruction to play it out from the back and retain possession they were clearly up for the challenge following last weeks defeat to Oldcastle. With 12 mins on the clock Carroll punted the ball forward from a free kick for Lynch to rise above the centre half and beat the Trim keeper with a header. This was the perfect start for a Rovers side somewhat lacking in confidence.
