Wexford and District Womens League 23-09-2012

Womens Premier Division

Seaview United          1          Tramore FC     2
After a thrilling battle in Mersheen, last seasons champions Tramore will feel fortunate to leave with three points as they trailed one nil with three minutes to go. Maebh Kehoe had given the home side the lead and despite the visitors piling on the pressure, it looked like Seaview might have done enough to hold on. However goals from Vanessa Ogbonna and Niamh Walsh turned the game on its head and gave Tramore the three points

Adamstown    4          Cloughbawn    3
These two near neighbours served up a seven goal thriller with the home side eventually doing enough to take the victory. Chantelle Martin put Adamstown ahead but a goal from Mary Tyrell and two from Kate Cullen had the premier division new girls in control but another goal from Chantelle as one each from Niamh Kelly and Leanne Murphy gave Adamstown an opening day win

Ferns United   9          Coolgreaney Celtic     0
Last years runners up Ferns United made their intentions known in this match as they put promoted Coolgreaney Celtic to the sword.

Womens Division One A

Killenagh Wanderers  4          Wexford Celtic           1
The home side had this game wrapped up at half time when they led four nil thanks to goals from Marian Kavanagh, Isobel Naughter, Leona Masterson and Sara Killick. Nellie Walsh did pull one back for Celtic in the second half but they could make no further headway into the home side defence and Killenagh seem intent on a quick return to the premier division

Curracloe United        5          North End United       0
A young Curracloe side are determined to make a quick return to the top division as they overcame North End with five goals to spare. Bridget Curran, Niamh Doyle, Amy Banville, Clara Donnelly and Noeleen Shanahan were all on target for the home side

Shilelagh United         2          Kilmore United           3
These two sides will be hoping to be in contention for promotion at the end of the season and after this thriller, neither will be far away. Lisa Goff and Johanna Cousins put Kilmore two goals ahead but Fiona Byrne scored twice to bring the home side back onlevel terms. However, Jasmine Redmond had the final say when she scored late in the game to give the visitors all three points

Womens Division One B

Glen Celtic      2          New Ross Town         3
A Jenny Delaney hat trick gave the New Ross side all three points in a very tough closely fought encounter where all five goals came from dead ball situations. Siobhan Nolan scored both Celtic goals in a game of few chances despite five goals being scored

St Josephs       4          Courtown Hibs           0
Tracey McCormack made a return to womens soccer and scored twice as the home side overcame Hibs four nil with Aoife Kavanagh also scoring twice. Hibs did create chances but found the Joeys defence difficult to break down

Corach Ramblers         1          Bunclody AFC           0
A solitary Shannon McDonald goal gave Corach victory in a very close encounter where both sides created several chances while a young Bunclody side were unlucky not to equalise when a free kick struck the crossbar late in the second half

Womens Division Two A

All Blacks       5          Cloughbawn B            3
This eight goal thriller saw All Blacks eventually take all three points despite a very spirited display by Cloughbawn second team. A Roisin Furlong hat trick as well as goals from Roisin Murphy and Deirdre Kenny had the home side always in control while Joanne Kennedy scored a hat trick for Cloughbawn

Moyne Rangers           1          Rosslare Rangers         10

Womens Division Two B

Campile United           1          Rosslare Strand           1

Under Twelve National Cup
Four teams from Wexford have qualified for the Leinster Under Twelve blitz after the League blitz in Bunclody on Saturday. Cloughbawn looked very impressive as they eventually overcame Tombrack three nil, drew one all with Gorey Celtic and romped past Camolin Celtic seven nil to top the group. Gorey Celtic finished second on goal difference as they beat Camolin three nil and Tombrack two nil as well as the draw with Cloughbawn.

Fixtures for 23rd September 2012

Wexford and District Womens and Schoolgirls League 16-09-2012

Under Twelve Schoolgirls National Cup
The Wexford qualification blitz for the Under Twelve National Cup will take place on Saturday September 22nd at a venue to be decided. Players born in 2000 – 2002 are eligible to participate and teams are allowed enter a squad of twelve. Any club interested in entering the Wexford section, please contact 087 2697074 before Wednesday September 19th and a fee of twenty euro will be charged per team to cover referee costs. The qualifiers will be representing the league in the Leinster blitz and if succesful there, will qualify for the National final on October 13th in Dublin so ensure your club can fulfil these obligations before entering.

League Kicks Off next Sunday
Next Sunday will see the Wexford Womens League kick off for what promises to be another exciting and closely contested season. With St Cormacs withdrawing from the premier division, seven teams will compete this season instead of the usual eight which means there will be only one team relegated at the end of the season. Champions Tramore will still look the team to beat although they have lost three players to Wexford Youths Women which will surely have an impact. Last season Ferns were their most serious challengers and it looks like they will be this year as well and as they have much the same squad, they could actually be the team to beat. Adamstown continue to grow as a team and could cause some problems fort he bigger sides but still not sure if they are ready to be able to challenge for the title but without doubt they will be in the running. Seaview United are another side capable of causing problems for the challengers although they need more consistency to launch any sort of serious challenge for the title themselves. Benfica just about survived last season as they lost a load of players but a run of form late in the season saw them do just enough to avoid relegation. Some of their players have moved to Australia for this season so once again they need to rebuild and it will all depend on how quick they can do it will have a big bearing on where they finish. Cloughbawn have taken the place of Shelburne in the top flight after an exodus of their players moved to the Clonroche based side which resulted in the demise of the Ballywilliam side in womens soccer. It will be difficult to gauge how they will do at this level and the upheavel during the summer will be bound to have had an impact so it will depend on how quick to settle into life in the top flight. Coolgreaney Celtic are also promoted and will be hoping to get a good start to ensure survival in the top division but its their away form could let them down as they are unfortunate that the division contains several south county teams as well as the two Waterford sides.
Division One A will be wide open this season with almost all the sides competeing capable of lifting the title and it is impossible to guess who will be the main challenger. However North End and Killenagh could be the teams best prepared for the challenge for the two promotion spots while Curracloe and Kilmore United will always be in contention
Division One B also looks to be a closely contested division with Corach Ramblers and New Ross Town looking sharp in pre season while Glen Celtic and St Josephs wont be far away.
Division Two A will see All Blacks and Rosslare Rangers start as early favourites while Division Two B will see Camolin Celtic and Bree United start as teams most likely to be in contention for the title.

FAI Senior Womens Cup Semi Final
Next Saturday evening will see Wexford Youths Women travel to Morton Stadium in Santry to take on Raheny United in the semi final of the FAI Senior Cup for what promises to be a very interesting cup tie. In the three league matches played last season between the sides, there was very little between the teams as they drew twice and Raheny edged a three two victory in Ferrycarrig. Raheny finished second in the league last season and are unbeaten so far this season and would be considered Peamount Uniteds most serious challengers for the title. Ironically, both sides have reached this semi final without kicking a ball, as they qualified for the quarter finals courtesy of their top four finish in the league and then both received walkovers. Raheny were given a walkover by Castlebar Celtic while Wexford were given an easy passage through by Raheny Uniteds second string when they withdrew from the competition. Wexford travelled to the AUL on Sunday for a friendly against the Republic of Ireland Under Nineteen squad and came out one nil winners thanks to a goal from Ciara Rossiter which sets the Wexford girls up nicely for Sundays semi final. While the FAI Cup does not carry the prestige it once did, it would still be nice to get to the final and an opportunity to lift the first national womens trophy. The game on Saturday kicks off on Saturday at 7-30pm and the girls would appreciate your support on the night
