MISSION

It is the mission of the Executive Committee to dedicate its administrative services to improving the competitive position of our Clubs in all competitions. We seek to create and foster a challenging and stimulating environment in which our players can achieve their full potential through developing their skills and sustaining successful relationships with our Clubs, their communities, parishes and businesses.

It is the objective of the Committee to develop the game within its administrative area to a point where leaders within the communities and players will strongly identify with their club and their League administrative body and its potential role in harmony with other voluntary sports organisations.

Crettyard United v North End United
17/11 14:30
Crettyard United 1 - 4 North End United

Crettyard hosted Wexford side North End United in the FAI Youths Cup. The home side started the better of the two team and after 10 minutes Crettyard thought they were 1 goal up when Liam Seery found Luke Phillips to score but was then ruled out for offside, he then had another opportunity but he struck the post and went wide. The Crettyard tales were up and put North End under serious pressure. However they failed to score and were punished 5 mins left of the half when a back pass to the keeper was intercepted to go a goal down.

The second goal came 5 mins into the second half and it was a real sucker punch after starting brightly. North End picked up the pace to dominate possession and got a 3rd from good play down the right. Crettyard cut the lead to 2 when Phillips won a penalty that Tadhg Dunne scored. Crettyard pressed for more goals but we’re caught out with minutes left to concede a 4th goal. 4-1 FT. Hardest working for Crettyard were Brian O’Sullivan, Adam Lynskey and Orrie Doran.

Vale Wanderers v Bagenalstown AFC
03/11 14:30
Vale Wanderers 4 - 2 Bagenalstown AFC

Vale Wanderers 4

Bagenalstown AFC 2

Vale started the brightest, in a closely fought first-half and they took the lead on fifteen minutes, as Billy Lennon-O’Brien broke clear down the left and crossed for Lorcan Galvin to finish smartly to put Vale 1-0 up. Bagenalstown were soon back on level terms when a perfectly placed through ball by Craig Fogerty, found Paddy McDonald who finished neatly for 1-1 and that was the score at the interval.

Vale started the second-half the quicker, as Billy Lennon-O’Brien hit a shot that took a deflection off a Bagenalstown defender for an own goal that put Vale 2-1 up. Then it was Padraig Nolan’s turn to fire in a free-kick into the danger area and again it was touched home by a Bagenalstown defender for another own goal and 3-1 to Vale. Tommy Cummins finished off the scoring as he finished really well to make it 4-1 to Vale, however, the scoring wasn’t over as Nathan Holden pounced on a mistake in the Vale defence and thumped home a consolation goal to make the final score 4-2 to Vale.

Best for Vale were Mark Foley, Jack Treacy, Brooklyn Dermody and Kieran Collins, whilst standing out for Bagenalstown were David Watkins, Sean Maloney, Paddy McDonald and Eoghan Hickey.

Burrin Celtic v Killeshin/Hanover FC
03/11 14:30
Burrin Celtic 2 - 1 Killeshin/Hanover FC

Burrin Celtic 2

Killeshin/Hanover 1

On a very windy day in The Valley’s wide-open spaces, Burrin lost the toss and had to contend with a really strong wind, blowing straight down the pitch.

Both teams started well with honours even, but after 15 minutes, Burrin won a corner and Killeshin/Hanover could only clear the ball, as far as Cormac Kinsella, who had plenty of time and space to slot the ball into the bottom left corner for a 1-0 lead. To combat the wind Burrin were playing some great football, on the ground, with Killeshin/Hanover playing completely different tactics, as they played the long ball, with the wind catching the ball and it was going straight through to the Burrin keeper, which made life easy for Burrin. On 30 minutes Burrin counter-attacked and a great ball, over the top, by Adam Nolan, saw Daniel Smyth getting to the ball before the Killeshin/Hanover keeper and he was brought down for a pretty obvious penalty. Eli Byrne stepped up and calmly slotted the ball into the corner of the net for 2-0 and a comfortable lead. Killeshin/Hanover had, one or two chances, albeit from long range, but Burrin’s keeper Jake Summer’s saved well and the interval came with that 2-0 score line.

In the second-half, Burrin had the wind behind them and it was their turn to put a lot of pressure on the Killeshin/Hanover defence. Daniel Smyth picked up the ball in midfield and ran through the Killeshin/Hannover defence, before unleashing a left-foot rocket that hit the bar with Lorcan Doyle trying to get the rebound, but his shot was saved by the keeper. Burrin were now completely on top, but Kilkenny/Hanover counter-attacked and their Number 10 Dillon Delaney calmly slotted home for 2-1. Both teams tried hard to score in the last few minutes but defences stood firm and it ended 2-1 to Burrin.

It was a battling performance from Killeshin/Hanover whilst best for Burrin were Eli Byrne, Andrew Skelly and Lorcan Doyle.
