CMUL U12 CHAMPIONSHIP
BLAYNEY ROVERS 1-4 CARRICK ROVERS
On Saturday morning last the Carrick Rovers under 12 CMUL Championship side made the sort trip to Castleblayney to play Blayney Rovers. The game was played at Blayney Rovers magnificent new facilities which is a testament to the hard work that has been put into this relatively young Club. The pitch was in fantastic condition and both these young sides didn't disappoint in the way they tried to play free flowing attractive football that complimented the surroundings. An evenly fought first half was just edged by Carrick Rovers with Matthew Mathers pouncing on a handling error by the Blayney Rovers Keeper to slot home the opening goal. But back came Blayney to level the scores before Mark McCahey restored the lead for the visitors with a well struck shot from a free kick.
SFAI CUP U-13
Carrick Rovers 2-0 Ballyjamesduff
Carrick Rovers U13 squad played Ballyjamesduff on Sunday morning 18th Oct for a place in the final round of the Ulster section of the SFAI CUP. The game was due to be a home game for the Rovers but these 12 year old's were forced to play the game in Cootehill. Letterkenny Rovers knocked the young Carrick lads out at this stage last season but they were hoping to go one better this season, with the prize being a home tie against the Donegal lads in the final round of the Ulster section. Ballyjamesduff obviously meant business and everybody in attendance was expecting a cracker, and they didn't leave disappointed after an exhilarating contest.
Ballyjamesduff kicked off at 11 and they clearly meant business as they set the tempo in the early stages and it wasn't long until they won a free kick on the edge of the Rovers box. Daire set up his wall effectively and the Ballyduff player drove over the bar. Ballyduff were on top and there was a real hunger about their play. Rovers back 4 were struggling to cope with the movement of the Ballyduff men and they were going to have to lift their game if they were going to progress. Oran and Conor were looking menacing up front for Ballyduff and Daire had to be alert on a few occassions to deny them. Rovers were struggling across the middle and Ballyduff were winning this battle the whole way across the pitch. Rovers created a couple of chances but never really looked sharp enough in the final third to take the lead. Ballyduff were playing the ball out well from the back and never seemed to come under any real pressure with Kyle marshalling his troops well for Ballyduff and the Rovers front-line were struggling. The first half just seemed to fly by and the Ballyduff lads definitely shaded it but they just could not make the breakthrough. It was probably one of the most entertaining 0-0 halves of football you will see this season.
Half-time -Carrick Rovers 0-0 Ballyjamesduff
Rovers kicked off the second half in a more positive mood as they looked to take control of the match. Nathan and Dylan were starting to gain the upper hand in midfield and the Rovers were enjoying more possession. Zach was unlucky to see his effort just clear the bar as the Rovers pushed the Ballyduff lads back. Ballyduff threatened down the right but Cathal cleared the danger and put the Rovers on the front foot again. Rovers were starting to create chances and won a corner in the 9th minute of the second half. Dylan put in a great corner which Daniel headed powerfully into the net and the deadlock was broken. Ballyduff chased an equalizer but this time Conor headed clear and the Rovers were now picking up all the loose ball. Flynn was put in behind the Ballyduff defence but failed to add to the score. The Rovers then won a free kick out on the right, Luke floated a teasing cross towards the oppositions penalty spot which Pavels headed towards the goal before he was fouled by the Ballyduff keeper. Stevie made no mistake from the spot and the Rovers were 2 up. Ballyduff pushed forward again and Daire was fast off his line to foil Ballyduff again as they pushed hard to get one back. Ballyduff got in again and looked like scoring but this time it was Keith who cleared the danger. Again Ballyduff pushed forward but Luke was strong and closed the door as the clock ticked away. The referee blew the final whistle to bring a memorable game of football to a close and the Rovers will now welcome a very good Letterkenny side to the Ballybay Road.
Team: Daire O'Shea, Luke Mc Sharry, Conor Cassidy, Keith Farnan, Cathal Maher, Nathan Mc Nally, Daniel Mc Cahey, Zach Donnelly, Flynn Holland, Dylan Byrne, Stevie O'Rourke, Pavels Maksimisens, Andrew Mc Elroy.

Electro Celtic 0-5 Carrick Rovers
Challenge Cup Rd 1
The result was never in doubt when after only 20 minutes Cian Matthews latched onto a ball from Lynch, took it in his stride and with his so called weaker right foot beat the keeper. On a normal day a 1 nil lead after 20 minutes would be a satisfactory start, on this particular day it completed his hat trick after scoring 2 prior to that. Two weeks previous Matthews made his first start of the season since returning from a summer in The States, he showed great potential on that day against Rathkenny but like the rest of his teammates there was no end product - today was different.
CARRICK ROVERS 1-4 CLONES TOWN
Carrick Rovers U14 B Team kicked off their first game of the season at home on the Ballybay Road at 14:00 hrs last Saturday taking on Clones Town. There were some new faces for this year along with all of the previous years players returning. Both teams started off well with a lot of attacking down both wings keeping defenders very busy but it was the visiting side who scored the first and the second goal and even though the Carrick lads tried as hard as they could they could not breach the Clones defence with chances for Jack Markey,Ryan Marron and Dara Maher.There were two changes at half time with Gabriel and Cian McNulty coming on for Fergal Delaney and Jack Markey. Rovers started well with Dara Maher going close before being blown for off side,Turlough O Hanlon got his chance when he came on for Ben Lynch unfortunately the Carrick lads gave away a free kick just outside the box where Clones punished them with a finish in the top of the net but the Carrick lads never gave up and they got a deserved goal from a corner kick when the ball came back to James Callan who made no mistake when he shot for goal. Two more changes were made with Eoin Rooney and Padraig Malcom coming on but try as Carrick did their luck wasn't in and Clones struck with about five minutes left and thats where it finished at 1-4 to Clones. Carrick showed great heart and never gave up but lady luck did not smile at them this day.
CARRICK ROVERS 0-4 BALLYJAMESDUFF
Carrick Rovers premier under 14's kicked off their first home league fixture against Ballyjamesduff on Saturday.It was a difficult game to watch after doing so well in our cup match against Buncrana in Donegal and our intense training sessions with Noel.This Carrick rovers team did not compete and were second to the ball for the whole match.There was no urgency or determination and no name calling throughout.We were short in midfield and you could tell.Ballyjamesduff played well and scored within 15 minutes and were 2 up at half time all mistakes happening from the centre.
Darragh Alfred had some great runs up the right hand side with Oisin Burns and Dara O Callaghan both putting in a great effort.The second half started as the first had finished.With Ballyjamesduff, given the ball back, time and time again.Neale Egan had a good game but could do nothing about their third goal, a fabulous left foot shot from the right to his top right hand side.This game finished 4-0 to the visitors and I know if this team put real effort in we might have gotten something out of it as I know we can play better than this.It's disappointing when a lot of effort is put in at training and we don't bring it to the playing field.I know we will do better next time.
TEAM: Neale Egan, Darragh O Callaghan, Jake Gaynor, Conor Capaldi, Nathan McCaul, Darragh Alfred, Shane Hanratty, Ciaran Walsh , Adam Dowling , Oisin Burns, David Leegan, Cameron Etherington, Liam Whelan.
Carrick Rovers 4 -1 Bellurgan
The previous weeks confidence boost against Termonfeckin was exactly what
the Rovers lads needed to settle themselves into a new league facing new
teams every week. After 4 games the lads seem to have adapted to the
intensity and physicality of the Dundalk league. They lined up last
Saturday against a strong Bellurgan side who have competed strongly for
the league in previous seasons. However Carrick proved too strong. The game
began slowly with both teams testing the oppositions pulse. Carrick
created opening chances through Lorcan Murnaghans laser like passes with either
foot through to attackers Cathal, Jerome and Dylan Ward. The versatile
Aidan Rahill slotted into a new role in centre half alongside regular Tommy
Carricks opening goal came courtesy of a pass from Lorcan to Jerome who
blistered passed his marker and struck home a powerful shot that would’ve
dented the great wall of china. Rovers now began to click into gear and
played the remainder of the game on their own terms. Hard working midfield
pair Barry Kieran and Lorcan fought doggedly for every possession in
midfield. Defenders Fionnan ,Tommy, Aidan and Cian Rooney were strong and
uncompromising in tackles as well as being efficient in possession and
distribution. As half time neared Rovers became over exuberant in creating
chances but lacked the cool head and killer instinct to convert the
abundance of chances they created. Jack Gillick Barry Kieran and Dylan
Ward all came close with chances. However Rovers failed to score until in-form
front man Dylan Ward once again displayed his class for all to witness,
wrong footing the entire Bellurgan defence before snapping an accurate
shot under the despairing dive of the Bellurgan keeper. Next to rattle the net
for Carrick was Jack Gillick who had been spritely and alert throughout
the game. Good work from the never tiring Cathal on the left wing resulted
in a cross ball being hammerd home by Jack Gillick. At this stage Rovers
began to relax and were rudely awakened when Bellurgan clawed a goal back
as a consequence of a lack of concentration and some uncharacteristic lack
lustre defending. However Rovers capped off a fine performance with a
superb individual goal from Dylan Ward who has now scored 5 goals in 2
games. Dylan drove through the heart of the Bellurgan defence took on and
beat both centre halves before rifling the ball high and hard into the
roof of the net. Overall a stellar performance from the Rovers who face Albion
Rovers in Monasterboice next week in an eagerly anticipated clash.
ROVERS U13AS WIN IN BALLYHAISE
CMUL U-13 PREMIER LEAGUE
Ballyhaise 1-6 Carrick Rovers
Carrick Rovers u-13A squad kicked off their league campaign on a warm October Sunday morning in Ballyhaise. It was a repeat of last years cup final which Rovers edged 3-1 to complete the double. Ballyhaise started sharper and were allowing the away side very little time on the ball. Both defences were on top early on with very few chances being created. On 10 minutes Stevie found some space on the edge of the box and hit a speculative right footed shot straight at the keeper and to everyone's surprise the keeper spilled into the net to put the Rovers ahead. It was hard luck on Ballyhaise who were working extremely hard early on but they reacted positively and went in search of an equaliser. Cathal made a super tackle to deny Ballyhaise, whose movement up front was causing a few problems for the back 4 of Luke, Conor, Keith and Cathal. Rovers were sloppy at the back and conceded a needless corner. Ballyhaise floated in the resulting corner which didn't look dangerous but when Daire didn't deal with it, Keith put it against his own bar and Ballyhaise bundled the rebound across the line to level the score. This seemed to spur the Rovers into action and you could see from the restart that they moved up a gear and they were now moving the ball at pace and causing a lot of problems for the Ballyhaise rearguard. Dylan floated a lovely cross towards the 18 yard line which Stevie headed down to Nathan who cushioned it back to Flynn and he made no mistake with an unstoppable shot to the roof of the Ballyhaise net. Luke and Zach were combining well on the right as the game approached half time while Dylan was looking dangerous on the left. Ballyhaise were on the back foot and when Stevie put Dylan behind the home team's defence he made no mistake to put the Rovers 3-1 ahead at the break.
Ballyhaise 1-3 Carrick Rovers
The Rovers started the second half the same way as they finished the first as they pressed Ballyhaise at every opportunity showing flashes of the football they played last season and it wasn't long until Stevie had the ball in the home side's net getting in behind the Ballyhaise defence and finished well. Rovers were passing the ball well with Nathan and Daniel dominating midfield despite the best efforts of Ballyhaise. Rovers were putting some lovely passages of play together now, and when Dylan flicked the ball around the corner on the half way line, Flynn put Stevie in on goal again and Stevie finished well to make it 5-1. Pavels found some space on the edge of the box but couldn't add to the score. After good work on the right Daniel put in a good cross deep into the box which Nathan knocked down to Ben who finished well to complete the scoring with 12 minutes left on the clock. Ballyhaise were playing on the break now and Conor and Keith both made timely interceptions. Dylan was unlucky not to add to the score but the Ballyhaise keeper saved well. Luke then got to the endline on the right and put in a great cross but nobody could get on the end of it as the game fizzled out. Daire will be disappointed not to keep a clean sheet and had a quiet afternoon in the Rovers nets. Overall it was a good performance from the Rovers as they kicked off their league campaign.
Team: Daire O'Shea, Luke Mc Sharry, Conor Cassidy, Keith Farnan, Cathal Maher, Nathan Mc Nally, Daniel Mc Cahey, Zach Donnelly, Flynn Holland, Dylan Byrne, Stevie O'Rourke, Pavels Maksimisens, Ben Mc Connon.
