Now that we have reached the end of 2017, it is time to take a quick look back at the first half of the 2017-18 season

Under Nine Boys, Under Nine Girls, Under Ten Boys and Under Eleven Boys

All four of these teams play non-competitive with no results or league tables published so we are not allowed to report on their actual results but we are delighted to say that all four are doing well, fulfilling fixtures and producing some excellent performances. Well done to everyone involved in ensuring these teams take to the pitch on a regular basis as these teams will ultimately be the future of the club so to players, managers, coaches and parents, keep up the good work

Under Eleven Girls

Half way through the season these girls sit top of the table and unbeaten in their division although they still have a couple of tough games to get through as they endeavour to wrap up the title. This is a very competitive division with no weak teams so to be three points clear at the half way stage has proved to be a great

achievement and if the girls can continue this form into 2018, they will be deservedly crowned champions but will need to stay focussed and committed to achieve that honour

Under Twelve Boys

Our youngest competitive boys team have only played three games so far and have only one point despite playing some excellent football. The point was gained in a 2-2 draw at home to Fethard Rangers but if you look at the teams other results, the team have been very unlucky, losing just 3-4 to the Ballagh and bowing out of the cup 2-3 to neighbours Ferns United. It is unlikely that this team will pull itself back into a title challenging position this season but will be a team to watch in the future

Under Thirteen Boys

Despite sitting fourth in the table, this team are just one win from becoming at least promotion contenders. Rathnure are looking unstoppable in the division but second place is between three teams and our lads are one of those three and with four games left to play, runners up spot is well within their reach. Credit must also be given to their performance against Gorey Rangers first team in the Wexford Cup and although they eventually lost 6-0, their performance against the best team in the county was very committed

Under Fourteen Boys

Half way through the season and the lads sit mid table but have a little bit of ground to make up if they want to challenge for second place, a task that they are well capable of achieving. A difficult start has them playing catch up but they are one of the clubs teams that when at full strength, they can produce the results needed to close the gap on the leaders. Their cup run ended early in December when unluckily beaten on penalties away to Corach Ramblers

Under Fourteen Girls

These girls started their season well with a good win over Arklow Town but two defeats since have knocked them down the table and have dented, but not destroyed, their title ambitions. Actual player numbers is proving to be their biggest setback as they have played almost all their games with ten players, several of whom are Under Thirteen so while this season might prove to be difficult, if this group of players can continue to improve, next season could prove to be very successful. 

Under Fifteen Boys

Another of our teams who got off to a poor start but recent form has seen them pull themselves up to mid table and a realistic chance of moving into second place. The lads lost their opening two games of the season but have been unbeaten since and while catching leaders Gorey Rangers is probably beyond them at this stage, a couple of vital wins will move them second so as we head into 2018, this team have all to play for. Also another of our teams to bow out of their cup on penalties when beaten by Newpark in their final game of 2017

Under Sixteen Boys

These lads lost their first game of the season to Enniscorthy United but have not looked back since and are now the schoolboy team in the club with the best chance of becoming the first to lift a schoolboy league title. A win over Shamrock Rovers showed they were well capable of challenging for the title but a win over leaders Enniscorthy United in early December has really opened up the league and have put the lads in a very strong position and their fate rests completely in their own hands as three wins from their remaining three games will ensure their title. They proved their capability when they took on top team in the league Forth Celtic and only bowed out 4-0 after a strong well disciplined display

Under Sixteen Girls

Holders of the Premier title, our girls are well in contention for the title this year as they are locked in a four way battle at the top with Forth Celtic, St Leonards and Bunclody. Some very closely contested matches have seen the girls produce some good results coming from 2-0 down v Forth Celtic to earn a draw away from home while a home defeat to Bunclody has proved to be the only setback. As they head into 2018, they are just three points off the top with some very crucial game coming up and retention of the title is still a very realistic possibility

Youths Boys

Our Youths drew their first game of the season 1-1 away to The Ballagh but have not been beaten since and are now actually unbeaten in the league for eighteen months, finishing runners up in the division last season. Since then the lads have won their four games including an impressive 3-0 win over leaders Enniscorthy United and while the lads still have a long way to go, their fate also rests in their own hands and if they win the games they can be crowned champions at the end of the season

Under Eighteen Girls

Last season this age group came through two play off games to lift the "Sevens" title and this season sit joint top of the table as we head into 2018. Three big wins have the girls joint top with favourites St Leonards with some massive games to come in the new year and with several of the players who won both the Under Sixteen and Under Eighteen titles last season still part of this seasons squad, retaining their title is well on the cards

Well done to all our teams who are competing so well at all levels and all age groups with almost all still in contention for first and second places and no pressure on any of the managers but this season is shaping up to be as good as, if not better, than last season

Best of luck to all and Happy New Year
