VEE ROVERS FC

Schoolboys; Having partaken in a successful summer camp, at which Adam Mac Sharry of Waterford United was special guest, the schoolboy teams are now back in training and playing friendlies in preparation for the coming season. Any boy wishing to play should contact 052-7465200 for further information.

Juniors; The Juniors reached the final of the Paddy McGrath Memorial Cup where they were beaten by St Kierans on penalties after an excellent game. On Sunday they kicked off the 2011-2012 season at home with a shield game against Two Mile Borris B. After some very useful pre-season games under the management of Mark Haide much was expected. A much different story unfolded however, as we never came out of the starting blocks and eventually suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat. Borus took the lead on ten minutes when they scored from a corner and increased their advantage on 31 minutes from a free kick. We rarely threatened their goal in the first half, apart from efforts by Daryl Peters, Warren O Brien and Martin Grant.

Rovers began the second half with purpose, but were rocked by a third Borris goal on 51 minutes, when the home defence was torn apart once more. Despite having the majority of the possession we failed to breach a strong Borris defence and paid the price for all out attack when they scored a fourth goal on 86 minutes. So its back to the drawing board as we await our first game in the League.

Golden Goal winner this week was Cormac Flynn.
