Monaghan United 2-1 Carrick Rovers

Rovers 14's travelled to Gortakeegan, Monaghan on Saturday afternoon for a top of the table clash with League leaders Monaghan Utd. The game was played in perfect conditions for what turned out to be a great advertisement for Underage soccer in this part of the country. Both teams played go possession football from the start, with the home side undefeated all season and being at home, doing most of the early pressing. This Rovers squad has come on leaps and bounds in the season that they have been together and soaked up all the early pressure that Monaghan threw at them. Tiarnan O'Riordain stood in goals at the last moment and played like he'd been there all year, solid with his handling and precise with his distribution.

Carrick Rovers 6-6 Monaghan United

Carrick Rovers 13's played Monaghan United's 13's in a CMUL fixture in John Sherlock Park, Cootehill on Sunday evening and found themselves 3-0 down inside the opening 20 minutes. The score could have been more but for a great save by Larry McCloskey in the Carrick goals, a goal line clearance from Cian Maher and a combination of poor finishing from the Utd forwards. It took until the 24th minute for Carrick to settle into some kind of rhythm and start to get the ball down and play. Ethan O'Gorman and Andrew Moore in centre midfield started to get a foothold and Oisin O'Hanlon, Sean Clarke, Jack McGeown and Donnach Swinburne upfront for Rovers started to get more possession and became a threat.

As a mark of respect for the late Brendan McSharry, father of our Chairman, David, Carrick Rovers AFC will not be partaking in any footballing activities this coming weekend.

The Aletto draw will also be postponed until Sunday February 16th.

Robinstown 3-2 Carrick Rovers
Following on from last weeks dramatic 4-4 draw away to Skryne Tara, Carrick Rovers 16's again travelled to Meath on Saturday 18th January to face Robinstown. This week Rovers were missing three key players and travelled to face Robinstown with the bare minimum of eleven players. The Robinstown squad was the opposite and included up to six players on the subs bench.

Carrick Rovers 0-1 BJD

The Ballybay Road was the venue on Saturday afternoon for the meeting of Carrick Rovers 13's and the rivals BallyJamesDuff from Cavan and although the conditions were unpleasant the spectators who braved the weather were in for a titanic struggle. Rovers started the stronger with Liam Og Murray pushed further up the field to partner Jared Wenham in midfield, Rovers had the upper hand early on. This allowed the forward line of Tadg Callaghan, Cillian Gartland, Jamie King and especially Dylan McCahey to get plenty of the ball early on. McCahey slotted into the number 10 role and had BJD in trouble early on with his clever movement and defence splitting passing. The backline of Dillon Finnegan, Oisin McEntee, Tiarnan O'Riordain and Tiarnan McCourt looked comfortable in the early stages and Adam Garvey in goals was rock solid.

This Saturday, January 25th, sees the start of the 2014 boys and girls soccer starting in Aclint from 10am to 12. All kids from 5 to 10 are welcome. If you require any further info please contact David Alfred @ 0862268220.

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.
