Castle Rangers 0 - 5 Vale Wanderers

In a very competitive first half, Vale started the better on a tight pitch in the youth center in Carlow town. Vale had a great chance to open the scoring after 2 minutes, but the Castle keeper saved well from Rob Bulmer’s close-range strike. Vale had another couple of chances from the front 3 of Bulmer, Smithers and Dowling but couldn’t convert. Vale found the breakthrough when James Dowling rose highest to head home from a Sean Smithers corner. 5 minutes later and it was two, Jason Daly scoring a worldie from 25 yards into the far top left corner. Castle kicked into gear and started putting pressure on the young Vale side but was dealt with well through the excellence of Martin Bridgett and Tom Gardiner at the heart of the Vale back line which they managed to keep the home side scoreless at the break.

Vale went through the gears in the second half, and it took 10 minutes to virtually kill the game as a contest. Jack Treacy scored from the penalty spot after Sean Smithers was brought down in the area. James Dowling got his 2nd and Vale’s 4th of the game with a close range finish. Sean Smithers got in on the act and made it 5 after good work from James Dowling again. Castle's best chance fell to Tommy Kerrigan, but his shot was just outside the post. Vale saw out the game to finish with a comfortable 5 nil victory.

Best for Vale on the day were Jason Daly, Jack Treacy, and Martin Bridgett while for Castle, Mick McGrath, Gerry Timmons and Tommy Kerrigan battled hard.
