Well done to our own Lee Grace who has been voted the Galway United Player of the Month for April!

The 24-year-old has registered a string of impressive displays at the centre of defence and the Carrick-on-Suir native has displayed a consistent level of performance since joining the Westerners, according to the Galway UT website.

Carrick U16 girls secured another league & cup double with a victory against Tram ore winning 4-3 in Graun Park Tramore.

This victory adds to 3 previous League & Cup doubles with the majority of the girls winning

U12, U14, U 15 & now U16 Waterford leagues & cups

This win was hard fought with home team determined to spoil the party.

Opening the scoring after 10mins Tramore's lead was shortly depleted with Erica Kiely scoring the first of her 3 goals.

Both teams competed hard but fair for every opportunity with Carrick gaining the upper hand to lead 2-1at half time.

Shortly after the restart Tramore equalised and gained the advantage with another score leading 3-2 with 25 minutes remaining.

One of the strengths of this group of players is their commitment and self-belief. This was a key factor to the Carrick girls equalising at 3 goals each.

With ten minutes remaining Carrick were awarded a penalty after Angela McGuigan was fouled. She duly got to her feet and scored what turned out to be the winning score.

Congratulation and well deserved win for the squad of girls who have represented their club in fine fashion.
