New Oak Boys 0 - 0 Slaney Rovers

New Oak Boys 0

Slaney Rovers 0

Defending champions New Oak missed a chance to go top of the league after been held goalless by current table toppers Rovers.

The hosts had the lion’s share of possession throughout but Rovers were determined in defence and looked dangerous at times on the counterattack. Andy Wall had the hosts first sight on goal as he flashed an effort wide midway through the half. Lee Murphy was next up for the Boys but his header from a Dean Kelly cross just cleared the bar. Rovers best chance of the half fell to Lubomir Lesko but he also failed to keep his effort on target as the teams went into the break goalless.

The second half was more of the same, New Oak with the possession and Rovers trying to hit them on the break. Michael Foley had an early chance for the visitors but Keelan Gaffney in the New Oak goal dealt with his effort before his opposite number Fergal Harmon was called on to keep out Will Hayes. New Oak piled on the pressure in the last 20 minutes with David Doyle and Craig Wall driving them on from midfield but they just couldn’t prise open a stubborn Rovers rear-guard and had to be content with a share of the spoils despite a very good team performance.

Best for Slaney included Regan Murphy, Eoin Curran and Lubomir Lesko.

Crettyard United v New Oak Boys
Youths Cup 07/03 14:30
Crettyard United 0 - 1 New Oak Boys

Crettyard United 0

New Oak Boys 1

New Oak took an early 0-1 lead after only ten minutes when Brandon Doyle slipped through a pass to David Ujadughele who coolly fired home to stun Crettyard.

Thereafter Crettyard completely dominated the rest of the game but just couldn’t break down a dogged and stubborn New Oak defence as they sat back and defended their slender lead and at half-time it was still 0-1 to New Oak.

In the second-half, Crettyard threw caution to the wind and attacked in numbers but the nearest that they came to scoring was when a shot was remarkably cleared off the line by Jack Lawlor as the whole New Oak team battled manfully to stem the flow of Crettyard attacks. Crettyard won a corner in injury time but a quick counterattack by David Ujadughele and he was one on one with the Crettyard keeper but his shot went narrowly wide and it ended 0-1 to New Oak.

This was a terrific performance by New Oak where the whole team played well but Brandon Doyle and Jack Lawlor deserve a special mention for their efforts as they shone throughout the game. It was a good all-round team performance from Crettyard but it wasn’t enough to secure a victory.

New Oak Boys 1 - 0 St Patricks Boys

New Oak Boys 1

St Patrick’s Boys 0

A Dean Kelly penalty on the stroke of half time was enough for New Oak to claim the points and move into second spot in the table. Slaney lead the way by two points but with New Oak having played four games less the odds are getting shorter on the Carlow Town lads reclaiming the title. The hosts dominated possession for long periods of the first half but with the Pat’s defence in mean mood they struggled to get clear chances in front of goal. David Doyle’s header which just cleared the Pat’s crossbar the closest either side came to a goal in the opening half hour. With half time approaching the deadlock was broken, Doyle fouled in the area as he was about to shoot and Dean Kelly calmly converted to put the hosts 1-0 up on 44 minutes. There was still time for the lively Doyle to strike an effort off the post as New Oak almost doubled their advantage before the ref blew for half time.

Pat’s were a little more adventurous on the restart with Liam Byrne and Haitham Alkalbain probing for openings but with David O’Shea rock solid at the heart of the New Oak backline Pats were getting little joy. New Oak’s most likely source of a second goal was Kelly but twice his efforts from just outside the area went narrowly wide but with the visitors lacking a cutting edge in front of goal Kelly’s first half strike from the penalty spot was enough to see New Oak over the line after a solid team showing.

Best for Pat’s included Haitham Alkalbain, Liam Byrne, Owen Murphy and Anto Lawlor.

Crettyard United 2

New Oak Boys 0

The game was played in very blustery conditions courtesy of Storm Ciara which made for very tough conditions for both teams to play in and it was very difficult for all the players to adapt to this appalling weather.

Nonetheless both teams did their best to combat the conditions and it was Crettyard who were playing against the wind who looked the more likely to score as they fashioned a number of chances. One chance fell to Tobi Olaoye but he snatched at his shot and it went wide of the mark and then Ian Shanahan’s fine effort hit the inside of the New Oak post and was gratefully gathered by Shaun Geoghegan New Oak’s keeper. New Oak didn’t just sit back they went at Crettyard hard with Daniel Hayden starting numerous attacks from midfield but none of the chances created were clear-cut and the interval came with a 0-0 score-line.

The second half started pretty much the same as the first with both teams being very well matched however Crettyard took a 1-0 lead with a fantastic team goal involving all of eight players which eventually gave John Brennan the opportunity to play in Tobi Olaoye to finish the move with aplomb. Almost immediately New Oak had a great opportunity to equalise when David went through on goal but he narrowly missed the target and the chance went abegging. Crettyard’s second goal came on seventy-five minutes when a well-worked short corner by Ian Shanahan and Luke Ramsbottom saw the resultant cross emphatically headed home by Shane Buggy to make it 2-0 and essentially game over as Crettyard played out the remaining time that was left to gain a well- deserved victory.

Standing out for Crettyard were Daniel Phillips, Shane Buggy and Kyle Rice, whilst best for New Oak were Jack Lawlor, Brandon Doyle and Daniel Hayden.

BallyBrack FC v New Oak Boys
LFA Cup 07/02 20:00
BallyBrack FC 2 - 5 New Oak Boys

Another week, another competition and another win. New Oak’s relentless pursuit of silverware on all fronts continues as they booked their place in the quarter finals of the Leinster Junior Cup at the expense of LSL side Ballybrack on Friday evening.

The Boys got off to the perfect start, Cian Cleary bursting down the wing before crossing for Andy Wall who made no mistake from six yards as the visitors hit the front on three minutes. Moments later it should have been a two-goal lead, Dean Kelly’s cross missed by three of his teammates where any touch would have resulted in a goal. New Oak paid for that miss on 15 minutes when Ballybrack caught them on the break to make it 1-1. Craig Wall was dictating the play from the middle for the Boys and with Ballybrack pinned back for long periods the pressure eventually told, David Doyle picking up a loose ball on the edge of the box before firing the Boys into a 2-1 half time lead.

On the restart it was again New Oak applying the pressure, Wall and Doyle tormenting and teasing the hosts rear-guard constantly. Another run and cross from Cian Cleary unlocked the Ballybrack defence again on 55 minutes and again Wall was the beneficiary as he headed home for 3-1. That two-goal advantage was short lived as Ballybrack netted again but New Oak wouldn’t be denied and with 20 minutes left Jordan Harmon took aim on goal, his effort was saved but Dean Kelly was on hand to fire home the rebound for 4-2. New Oak or Kelly weren’t finished there and with five minutes left Kelly weaved his way past three defenders before coolly slotting home number five to compliment a fine team performance from the visitors.

New Oak Boys 3

Burrin Celtic 1

There was a quick start to the game from both teams but it was Burrin who struck the first blow on ten minutes through Adam Nolan as he took advantage of a lack of concentration by the New Oak defenders for a 0-1 lead.

Burrin had numerous opportunities to increase their lead but they couldn’t find a way past Shaun Geoghegan in the New Oak goal who was in excellent form making save after save to thwart the visitors. New Oak grew into the game and on 31 minutes they equalised through a long-range strike by Daniel Hayden to make it 1-1 and that was the score at the interval.

New Oak came out of the traps early in the second half and they went 2-1 up as Brandon Doyle rounded the Burrin keeper and finished into an empty net. This reverse spurred on Burrin and they applied a lot of pressure to New Oak’s defenders especially from wide areas but they couldn’t break down a strong and dogged new Oak defence. With 25 minutes to go New Oak lost Brandon Doyle to a red card and this decision enabled Burrin to further increase the pressure on New Oak but despite their extra man they were unable to break them down. A bit of good fortune came New Oak’s way as a Daniel Hayden shot was deflected into the Burrin net to give Daniel his brace and New Oak a decisive and match-winning 3-1 lead. Burrin piled on the pressure in the last ten minutes but a very courageous performance from this young New Oak team enabled them to see out the game with some backs to the wall defending and come out as 3-1 victors.

Best for New Oak were Daniel Hayden, Cian Kelly, Boni, Shaun Geoghegan and Jordan O’Brien whilst standing out for Burrin were Jake Somers, Adam Nolan and Scott Treacy.

New Oak Boys 1 - 7 Crettyard United

New Oak Boys 1

Crettyard United 7

Crettyard had the very best of starts as after only two minutes Jamie Maher lobbed the New Oak keeper from all of thirty yards to take a 0-1 lead that they never relinquished throughout the game. This early lead set the basis for a dominant control of the game as Crettyard went on to score at regular intervals throughout the game. New Oak were unabashed by this early reverse and they were unlucky not to score when Ben Coakley saw his fierce driven free kick rebound off the crossbar and to safety and New Oak always looked threatening on the counterattack and also from set pieces. Crettyard’s Jamie Maher’s brilliance in the box earned them a 0-2 lead on twenty minutes and a couple of minutes later Shane Buggy smashed home an unstoppable shot for a 0-3 lead and Jamie Maher then completed his hat-trick with a really tidy left-footed finish to make the half-time score a very comfortable 0-4 to Crettyard.

In the second-half New Oak came out as a completely different team as Brandon Doyle and Daniel Murphy caused Crettyard’s defence some problems from out in wide areas but they got caught on the break once again and shipped another goal that was scored by Luke Phillips who made it 0-5. New Oak were unlucky to be denied a penalty when Ben Coakley was taken down in the box and then just after the hour mark David and Denis combined well together to work a chance that was credited to David and make the score 1-5 to Crettyard. Crettyard then took control of the next phase of play and killed off the game with two quick-fire goals from Tadgh Dunne and the pick of the bunch from Ian Shanahan to make the final score 1-7 to Crettyard who were worthy winners.

It was a spirited display from New Oak who never gave up and best for Crettyard were hat-trick hero Jamie Maher, Victor Oladapo, Luke Ramsbottom and Orrie Doran

It was an even start to this game as both teams got the ball down and attempted to play good football in a game that was proving to be tricky in windy conditions.

Burrin scored for 1-0 on thirteen minutes as Adam Nolan scored with a fine finish following a cross from Ben Ward and Nolan scored another five minutes later for his brace as Burrin doubled their lead to 2-0. A brace from Nolan’s fellow-striker Dan Smyth made the score 4-0 at the interval and it didn’t seem if New Oak could get back into the game with that substantial deficit.

New Oak had wind advantage in the second half as they deployed long-ball tactics and they were getting some joy out wide but they just couldn’t find a way through the strong Burrin defence. However, a quick counterattack by Burrin saw Oisin Kelly score to make it 5-0 and the scoring was completed when Cian Byrne scored from the spot to make the final score 6-0 in what was a dominating performance by Burrin.

Standing out for Burrin were Lorcan Doyle, Adam Nolan and Dan Smyth, whilst best for an out of sorts New Oak team were Brandon Doyle, Bonita Milinganyo, Dan Smyth and Jordan O’Brien who had a fine game at left-back.

A lone first half strike was enough to see Rangers advance in the National Cup as New Oak lost for the first time since the opening day of the season, that came in the Shield v Crettyard.

In a tight first half the only real chance fell to Gorey striker Adam Terret, the striker making the most of the time and space allowed to him by the New Oak backline to pick his spot and put Rangers ahead.

New Oak had plenty of ball in the second half but couldn’t turn possession into goals and made their exit from the National Cup.

Another week, another competition and another win for the Boys. Showing little regards for competition or opposition the New Oak machine keeps turning out win's, this time it was the turn of The North East Counties champions Boyne to become the latest scalps for the Carlow kingpins. New Oak were on the offensive from the off, Conor Byrne firing over early on before they hit the front after just 13 minutes. Cian Cleary's cross was headed back across goal by Any Wall to the waiting Daryl Coleman and he slotted home for 1-0. New Oak kept pressing and could of had a second just before half time, Dylan Keightley crossed for Coleman but this time his header was saved by the Harps keeper. The second half was only 3 minutes in when the Boys did get their second, this time Coleman turned provider, crossing for Conor Byrne who gave the keeper no chance with a powerful header. Boyne responded but could get no change from a New Oak rearguard superbly marshalled by David O'Shea and indeed it was The Boys who created the better chances on the break. Andy Wall twice denied a goal by some excellent goal keeping as was Coleman who saw a powerful volley tipped around the post for a corner. The missed chances mattered little in the end as the hosts comfortably saw out the time to book their place in the next round of the Senior Cup a just a game away from a tie with The League of Ireland Big boys.

Both teams came out in determined fashion but New Oak started the brighter as they put Parkville under immediate pressure but Dylan Hanley and Dylan Sheridan were well able to deal with New Oak’s offensive play although Brandon Doyle came close for New Oak Boys.

Parkville settled after ten minutes and took control of the game with Eoghan Cunane having a shot that went narrowly over the bar and Cillian Fagan also firing over the bar. The closest that Parkville came to scoring was when Cian Doran got on to a lovely through ball and shot low and hard but the New Oak Boys keeper saved well with his legs and the rebound fell to Dylan Gorman-Comerford but again his shot went over the bar. The interval came and it was scoreless.

Parkville spurred on by their first-half performance felt that the game was theirs for the taking and the initial break-through came from a corner as a poor clearance was latched on to by Dylan Sheridan and he rose like an eagle to back-heel over the New Oak keeper and into the net for a 0-1 lead. Parkville came close again when Eoghan Cunane floated in a free-kick and Dylan Gorman- Comerford met it with his head but saw the ball go just wide of the post. A few minutes later from a carbon-copy of the last free-kick and this time Dylan Gorman-Comerford met the ball squarely with his head and it flew into the back of the net for 0-2. With only two minutes to go Eoghan Cunane won a penalty when he was brought down and Cunane stepped up himself to take it and he slotted the ball home to make the final score a very comfortable 0-3 victory.

Best for New Oak Boys were Jordan O’Brien and Jack Lawlor whilst standing out for Parkville were Dylan Sheridan, Luke Byrne and Oran Black.

North End United 3 AET

New Oak booked their place in the open draw after this pulsating tie on Sunday.

The hosts coming from behind twice to force extra time before finally getting the winner from an Andy Wall penalty. The Boys started well and created early chances for both Michael Calvey and Dean Kelly but it was North End who opened the scoring on 22 minutes. Things got worse for the hosts when United doubled their lead as the Boys failed to clear a free kick on the half hour mark. New Oak got a lifeline five minutes before the break when Jordan Harmon picked out David O’Shea to score and leave the minimum between the teams.

New Oak dominated for long periods in the second half and they levelled matters on 70 minutes, Dean Kelly was up ended in the box and Andy Wall did the rest from the spot. North End responded with another goal to lead 3-2 on 83 minutes but back came New Oak again and with the 90 minutes just up Dean Kelly found the net to force extra time. The Boys first attack in extra time yielded a second penalty, Cian Cleary fouled this time and without a hint of pressure Andy Wall again converted from the spot to put New Oak into the last 32 after an outstanding team effort.

The game started at a slow pace and gradually went New Oak’s way, as Vale just couldn’t their foot on the ball.

Very few chances were created and both sides were happy to see the end of what was a very scrappy first half.

The second- half started at a much faster pace, with both sides trying to create chances.

Vale’s first opportunity fell to Tommy Cummins, but he struck his shot straight at the New Oak keeper and shortly after, Shane Cowman hit his shot into the ground, after some good play down New Oak’s right flank. New oak were playing a counter-attacking game which caught out Vale on a couple of occasions, but overall there was a distinct lack of a good finish. Vale’s Tommy Cummins had a good chance, near the end, but he struck his shot across the goal, as the opportunity went abegging and finally, New Oak won a free kick on the edge of Vale’s box, but it was blazed over the bar. The game ended in a 0-0 draw which was a fair result in the end.

Best for Vale were Mark Fitzgerald Tom Gardiner and Cormac O’Hara, whilst it was a good team performance by New Oak.

New Oak started brightly and found themselves 0-1 up early on thanks to a wonderful header from Boni Milinganyo and they were dominating the play but Joey’s were looking dangerous, on the break and could have been level at the interval but they spurned the few chances they created and it was 0-1 at the break.

Early in the second half a tremendous strike from David Ujadugle from all of twenty-five yards put New Oak 0-2 up and shortly afterwards man of the match Lorcan Canavan made a superb solo run before finishing from outside the box to make it 0-3 and New Oak were cruising. New Oak’s last goal came from good link-up play between David Ujadugle and Lwazi Ndolvu and he finished well to give New Oak a comprehensive 0-4 victory.

It was a good overall team performance from Joey’s but they were overwhelmed by a terrific team performance by New Oak for whom Lorcan Canavan was absolutely outstanding.

New Oak Boys 6

The defending champions had no such issues to worry about as they cruised to victory over a new look St. Pat’s, expanding their unbeaten streak in the league to 20.

The score line doesn’t necessarily reflect the game as Pat’s played well in patches but failed to convert their chances. Jordan Harmon’s free kick put the visitors ahead from a free outside the box. Andy Wall broke from a Lee Murphy ball four minutes later to easily beat Danny Moran in goal and leave New Oak two up. The home side couldn't break down the strong back line from New Oak and soon found themselves three goals behind going into the break.

Wall’s effort was hit perfectly to find Keighley who hit from outside the box at a wide angle to find the back of the net. Pat’s started best after the break but were wasteful and it took New Oak six minutes after the break to make it four as Harmon fed Wall through on goal after Pat’s gave away possession. Dean Kelly made it five as he broke into the box, picked up a ball from Daryl Coleman and slotted home after some defensive errors from the hosts. Pat’s kept fighting but with five minutes to go, Brian Mullen added a sixth.

Hanover looked the better side to start with pouncing on an early defensive mistake. New Oak recovered well to level the game through Brandon Doyle. This lead was short lived however when New Oak failed to play to the whistle and allowed Hanover another easy goal. Brandon Doyle’s corner saw a scramble at the back post and New Oak we’re back level.

Second half saw a different Hanover who were constantly pushing for the lead and it came on the hour mark. New Oak tried to walk it out of the backline and it backfired gifting Hanover their third goal. New Oak drove hard and Captain Stephen Lacey roused his team to keep pushing hard. Cian Kelly’s header from a corner saw the sides level for a fourth time in the game before Jack Lawlor smashed home the winner after a new Oak corner.

Best for New Oak were Stephen Lacey, Jack Lawlor, Boni Miliganyo and Brandon Doyle
