Great Win for St. Joseph's in Cup
Under 13 SFAI Cup
Carrick Utd 1- St Josephs 5
St Josephs playing in their first ever Cup competition outside of the county put on a great display for everyone who made the trip to Carrick On Suir on Saturday morning. Joey's took the game to the home team and after 2 minutes Ryan Curran collected the ball on the edge of the area and sent a great shot to the net. Five minutes later Ciaran Williamson scored Joey's second with a fine shot. Shortly after the same player was unlucky to see his fine effort come back of the bar to deny a third. The Joey's defence was dominating the game and when Darren Murphy took control of the ball in the Carrick half 17 minutes into the game he scored from 30 yards out. Joey's continued to play well with the home side only having one serious attack in the first half. HT0-3
The first 10 minutes of the second half saw the home side play their best football and Joey's were penned back in their own half. 10 minutes into the half the home side scored from the penalty spot after Joey's had given the ball away tamely. Despite this Joey's were always the stronger side and it was only a few minutes until Jeff Sutton scored with a brave header to restore the 3-goal lead. Joey's then took total control and with five minutes remaining Matthew O Toole score Joey's fifth. This was a great day for the club and if this team continue to put in the effort and work as hard as they did in Carrick they will do well this season. Conor Byrne was a tower of strength in the middle of the defence with Alan Kirwan and Darren Murphy playing strong football alongside him. Ciaran Williamson and Jeff Sutton worked tirelessly in midfield and Ryan Curran and Pauric Whelan caused the home defence all kinds of problems. In the next round of the cup Joey's will be at home to Stretford Utd on 8th Nov. The players and manager would like to thank all the people who travelled down to the game.
Under 10 League
Killeshin 1- St Josephs 0
In a very close game in Killeshin on Saturday this young team were unlucky to come away without a point. These two teams are very evenly matched and it was always going to be the odd goal that would separate them. The home side had to wait until the second half to get the goal that gave them the points but Joey's were in this right up to the end. Best for Joey's were Mark Curran, John McGrath and Shane Callinan.
