WWEC 12 P 23/03 12:00
Valley Rangers 1 - 1 Brideview United
This U12 Premier League encounter was played on a fine Saturday morning in Conna pitch. Brideview as league leaders came into this game as favourites. The last encounter between both these sides in Tallow resulted in a narrow win for Brideview. The game was only a few minutes old when Brideview went ahead through some concerted pressure which led to an unfortunate own goal. Valley then put some pressure on brideview and some battling play in midfield from Fionn McCready was turned into a counter attack. Tristan Clancy collected the ball and with a beautiful through ball put Tymek through down the right hand side. Tymek still had a bit to do but rifled a shot into the roof of the net to equalise matters. brideview hit the crossbar a few minutes later. The second half was end to end stuff with both sides going for the win and both had chances. Brideview pushing hard for the win that would give them the necessary points needed to stay top of the table had some lovely play through Ben Sheehan in midfield and were twarted by Valley goalkeeper Dan Turley on a number of occasions. Charlie Leahy, Brian O'Sullivan and Sam Ahern were excellent for Valley in defence. Valley had a chance to win it in the last few minutes of the game when a lovely ball behind the Brideview defence was met on the volley by Tristan Clancy only to produce a class save by Brideview keeper Alex Good. A fantastic game ended in a Draw which was a fair result.

Valley Rangers 5 - 0 Ballymac F.C.
This U12 Premier league game between Valley and Ballymac was played in reasonable conditions in Conna Community Field last Monday morning. Valley had been in good form lately and took an early lead through Thomas Dee after some great play on the left hand side by James Keneally. Valley doubled there lead within 15 minutes when a lovely through ball from Fionn McCready was pounced on by Tristan Clancy who slotted the ball past the BallyMac keeper with his left peg. Ballymac looked dangerous on the break, particularly down the left hand side but couldn't quite get the final ball on target. Valley made it 3-0 before the break when Cillian Fitzpatrick finished off a fine move by Sam Ahern and Ronan Doyle. After the break Valley got a fourth goal after 5 minutes when a free kick on the right hand side was blocked by Ballymac keeper only for the rebunding ball to be slotted home by Valley Forward Tristan Clancy. Ballymac had a dominant 10 minutes and got a deserved penalty but a great save from Valley Keeeper Daniel Turley kept Ballymac scoreless. Then Valley got a penalty from which Cillian Fitzpatrick scored his second. Valley had to defend for large parts in the second half and Charlie Leahy, Brian O'Sullivan, Michael Lazack and James Cotter did well. Billy Ahern was very lively up front for Valley but Man of the Match went to Valley midfielder Fionn McCready who covered every blade of the pitch in a great performance. BallyMac deserved a few goals from the game and played some lovely football but the winner was never in any doubt. Well done to referee Brian Donnelly who had a fine game. Final Score: Valley 5-0 Ballymac.

Valley edge close encounter
WWEC 12 P 09/03 13:00
Valley Rangers 1 - 0 Mogeely F.C.

It was a nice warm but breezy afternoon in conna for this U12 premier league encounter. As we entered this match, Valley and Mogeely sit side by side mid table so it was always going to be a close one.

Mogeely started the brighter and had plenty of the possession in the first half. They had a number of half chances but had one good chance just before half time when the Mogeely centre forward was put through and had just the keeper to beat but Dan Turley in goals for Valley made a wonderful save to his right hand side to deny Mogeely. Valley had one good chance in the first half but Tymek pulled the ball wide from the right hand side.

Valley started the second half a bit brighter and were counter attacking well. This paid off when Tristan Clancy put a lovely ball through to Cillian Hickey who beat one player and finished well to put Valley ahead. Mogeely piled on the pressure and laid siege to the Valley goal for the last 15 minutes of the game but Valley were dogged in defence with Charlie Leahy, Brian O'Sullivan and Mark Kearney playing well. Mogeely had more of the possession right throughout the game and played some lovely football with Alex McSweeney showing brightly in midfield and deserved something from the game. Final score: Valley 1-0 Mogeely.

Good win for Mogeely
WWEC 12 P 09/02 11:00
Mogeely F.C. 3 - 0 Kilworth Celtic

Mogeely 3

Kilworth 0

Mogeely were back to winning ways last Saturday morning when they welcomed Kilworth to Railway Park, Mogeely.

Mogeely started with a number of players in new positions and a couple of new players from the U11's to fill in due to a few absentees, between entrance exams and illnesses of who we wish a speedy recovery.

The team started with Matt in goal, Evan, Andrew S. and Cian B. along the last line of defense. Oliver, Ciaran and Alex were across the middle of the park and Alan & Aaron were heading the attack.

Mogeely couldn't have asked for a better start when within the 1st minute Evan & Oli worked a lovely passage of play up the wing with Oli putting the ball into the box and Ciaran "Van Persie" came flying in with a diving header to slam the ball into the goal.

Mogeely enjoyed much of the possession throughout the game and any chance that fell to the Kilworth side was calmly dealt with by the defense line who were well on top. Tadhg, Ben & Mark were introduced during the half and provided fresh options on the wing and upfront.

Mogeely's lead doubled when Alex fired in a dinger of a corner and Ben was at hand to finish from close range to make it 2 nil going into the half.

Alex was to increase Mogeely's lead once more in the second half when he finished a fantastic shot to top corner of the goal giving the Kilworth keeper no chance.

Mogeely Team:

Matt Sweetnam, Evan Connolly, Cian Brennan. Oliver Prokulski, Ciaran Murphy, Alex McSweeney, Alan Nowak, Aaron Flanagan, Tadhg Cooney, Mark O'Mahony & Ben Cooney.

Valley Rangers 2 - 0 Lismore A.F.C.
Our reporter took on this game on a cold saturday afternoon in conna. Valley, the league leaders went into the game as favourites but Lismore gave Valley a tough game in the home fixture before Christmas when Valley won 3-2 in a very close contest. Valley started the brighter and Harry Draper, Jack Murphy and Jake O'Brien had chances in the first 20 minutes. Lismore settled into the game and had a shot hit the crossbar after 30 minutes. It was a tight battle in midfield with David McDonnell and Tom Hartnett from Valley combining well. The game was evenly ties at 0-0 at half time. The second half was another tight affair, with Valley coming close from a number of corners. The breakkthrough for Valley came with 20 minutes played in the second half when some fine work by James Hayes on the right hand side put in Dan who slotted home. Kyle Wallace played very well in the Valley defence with some great support from Stephen Roche, Ethan Scotthin and Cillian Fitzpatrick. Lismore then dominated the next 10 minutes and were very unlucky not to score when Valley keeper Shane martin somehow kept out a number of close shots from Lismore. It as from a a shot by lismore off the Valley crossbar that the game was decided. Valley broke quickly and a lovely ball over the top from David McD was nicely finished by Dan for his second. Valley then had a number of other chances to add to their two goal tally but the Lismore keeper was in good form. Final Score: Valley 2-0 Lismore.

UNDER 14 LEAGUE 01/12 14:00
Valley Rangers 1 - 7 Cappoquin Railway F.C.

Cappoquin Railway travelled to conna as favourites in this U14 league encounter as they have been doing very well so far this season. Valley started strongly and had a number of opportunities to open the scoring but Cappoquin defended well and held out. Against the run of play Cappoquin got the opener when some good play down the right hand side created the chance which was converted. Cappoquin got a number of goals in quick succession which ended the contest by half time with the score 6-0 to Cappoquin. A strange first half in that possession was pretty equal but Cappoquin took all their chances very well. Valley made some changes at half time and the game was more evenly balanced for the second half with both sides scoring a goal apiece.

Final Score: Valley 1 - 7 Cappoquin Railway.

Scorer Valley: Diarmuid O'Connell

Scorers Cappoquin: Shay Cotter (3), Tim Cliffe (3) and Eoin Coffey.

Brideview 1

Mogeely suffered their first league loss of the season when they took on Brideview Utd in Mogeely on Sunday morning. Both teams went into this game level in 2nd spot with Cappoquin heading the table by 1 point.

This was always going to be a tough game for both sides and even though it was an even contest both keepers had little to do with much of the play tooing and froing in the middle of the pitch.

Jake, Oliver, Alex & Ciaran worked hard in the middle of the pitch for Mogeely with Brideview midfielders equal to the task. Chris, Evan, Oran and Matt did their duties well in defence keeping Brideview at bay except for the only goal midway through the first half. Darius, Alan, Fionn, Andrew & Aaron at various stages looked to attack the Brideview goal up front.

Both teams worked hard but Brideview were very solid in all areas and just about deserved their victory.

Mogeely Team:

Matt Sweetnam, Evan Connolly, Chris O'Donnell, Oran Murphy, Alex McSweeney, Oliver Prokulski, Ciaran Murphy, Jake Magnier, Darius Medves, Aaron Flanagan, Alan Nowak, Fionn Mulcahy, Andrew Montgomery.

Valley edge Tight game against Lismore
WWEC 16 24/11 14:00
Lismore A.F.C. 2 - 3 Valley Rangers

Result: Lismore 2 - 3 Valley

Valley travelled to Castle Farm grounds last saturday as undefeated league leaders to play an improving Lismore side. Valley had a changed side as they were missing their two regular centre halves and they took time to settle into the game. Lismore came storming out of the blocks and dominated the first 20 minutes and deseved their 1-0 lead and could have scored a few more. However, Valley slowly started to dominate and got their just rewards when a Tom H cross from the right hand side into the box was flicked on by Harry Draper and met by Jake O'Brien to score Valley's opener. Valley kept the pressure on and a great run down the right by David and a superb cross was dispatched into the Lismore goal by Cillian. Valley led 2-1 at half time. The second half was end to end stuff and chances were falling at both ends. Lismore got a well deserved equaliser within 15 minutes of the restart. However 10 minutes later Harry Draper was taken down in the penalty area and David duly converted the spot kick for Valley to take a 3-2 lead. In the last 15 mins there were chances at both ends but Valley held out to take maximim points.

Ardmore A.F.C. v Cappoquin Railway F.C.
Great Result for Ardmore U16s
WWEC 16 02/02 14:30
Cappoquin Railway F.C. 2 - 7 Ardmore A.F.C.

Ardmore 6 Cappoquin/ Railway 2

On last Saturday Cappoquin/Railway were visitors to Dysart Park in the

U16 League. After a disappointing game against Inch where Ardmore's finishing left them down last time out, the Ardmore lads worked hard in training and it showed in an improved display this time round. Soren Delaney who scored late on against Inch, got Ardmore off the mark in the 10th minute with a good finish.

However the visitors levelled on 20 minutes with a good through ball setting the centre forward free and despite the best efforts of Callum Barron goal, he equalised. On the half hour mark the visitors went in front with a fantastic strike from midfield, giving the home keeper no chance. Ardmore were playing against the breeze but they finished the half well as they won a penalty for hand ball with Kyle Johnson firing to the net off the underside of the crossbar to make it 2-2. Just coming up to half time Marc Mahony who had went close on a number of occasions slotted his 9th of the season to leave Ardmore 3-2 in front at the interval.

Ardmore reverted to 3-5-2 for the second half and while it took them a while to break-through a well organised Cappoquin/ Railway defence, Conor French made it 4-2 on the hour mark. The same player got Ardmore's 5th as he reacted quickly to fire home after a corner kick was not cleared.

Jamie Bryan who started in defence completed the scoring with a fine strike from distance that secured the three points, with a much improved display this time round from Ardmore. Ardmore Squad: Callum Barron, Jamie Bryan, Luke Wade, John Flynn, Jack Smyth, Charlie Foley, Dave Carlton, Cian O’Regan, Tristan Delaney, Conor French, Andrew Hourigan, Soren Delaney, Kyle Johnson, Marc O’Mahony and Diarmuid O’Mahony.
