Tramore 2 Carrick Utd 0
The Premier squad lost their first league game since Easter 2009 last Saturday week. This fantastic run had to come to an end sometime and the result has set up an exciting title race.
Tramore deserved their victory on the night; they play a great brand of football, based on an excellent midfield. They played at a high tempo with pace all over the park. Tramore doing to Carrick what Carrick have been doing to most sides for the past 12 years best summed up the game. Tramore scored in each half with Carrick restricted to few efforts on target. Alan Coady and Keith Walsh had the best opportunities for a side that were disappointed with their own showing on the night.
Ferrybank 1 Carrick 2
The boys retorted well with victory at what always is a difficult venue. Going a goal down in the opening minutes was hardly what the doctor ordered but the boys recovered well to record a deserved win. Alan Ryan from the penalty spot following a great run by John Murphy brought Carrick level before the interval while a cracking strike form Alan midway into the second period sealed victory. Some other good efforts at goal might have yielded better reward for the visitors but likewise the home side will feel they could have added to their tally.
Munster Junior Cup
The club will contest its third Munster Junior Cup semi final in a row when Wembley Rovers of Limerick provide the opposition at Ozier Park next Sunday at 2.30pm. It’s yet another milestone for the club and our best wishes to all concerned.
The following Sunday the boys face a trip to Cork City in the semi final of the Munster Senior Cup.

Ferrybank 1 Carrick 2
Our under 11s played out a very entertaining 0-0 draw at Ferrybank last Saturday week. The first half produced few opportunities with both defences on top. Carrick began the second half brightly but could not break down a solid home defence. Ferrybank could have won the game but for a brilliant David Power save near the end.
Best wishes: Best wishes for a return to full health to our long time club official John Nolan who is presently recovering following illness.
Sympathy: Sympathy is extended to the O’Shea family, Rackhill following their recent family bereavement.
