Good Weekend All Round

On the back of a good win over the previously unbeaten Teemore Shamrocks on Friday night, Roslea traveled to Newtown hoping to secure two more valuable Reserve league points on Sunday. The home team’s struggle to get their players out meant that the game had to be played with 13-a-side.

Playing against the wind Roslea dominated from the off and spurned a couple of chances by shooting two wides in the early minutes. Indeed Newtown opened the scoring, against the run of play, in the second minute with a free from 40 metres by Sean Mullaney. Greg Connolly opened the Shamrock’s account however in the 4th minute after fielding well and playing a one two with inside forward Donal Mohan before kicking his point. James Boyle followed up with another - this time from a free after Micheal Jordan was brought down , 3 minutes later. Jordan was next on target with a fine individual score following a run from deep after 13 minutes. Roslea weren’t having it all their own way however and it took stout defending from Brian Maguire, Mickey Beagan and the impressive John Connolly to break up several Newtown attacks. They did eventually add to their total after a fumble at the back presented wing forward Niall Allen with a chance which he duly took, after 16 minutes of play. Roslea then took a stranglehold of the game and their midfield dominance with Diarmuid McAleer in particular playing out of his skin, resulted in seven unanswered points between the 18th and 26th minute to put them firmly in control of the game. Diarmuid (3), Jim Bob (2) Niall Mc Mahon and his brother Shane with one each were the men on target. The foundation for these scores was Diarmuid McAleer’s and Greg Connolly’s fielding, the penetrating runs being made by Micheal Jordan and a solidity at the back where Conor Mohan and Niall McMahon were on top of their game. The home side did pull one back through a pointed free by Mullaney in the 27th minute to stop the rot but this was cancelled out by another James Boyle point after a fine run down the wing in the final minute of the half.

Half Time Score   Newtownbutler 0-3 Roslea 0-11.

In a similar fashion to the first half early Roslea pressure yielded nothing more than a couple of wides when in truth they really should have increased their advantage. Again Newtown were first to get the scoreboard ticking when Sean Mullaney kicked his third of the day with 6 minutes gone. A direct ball in was well fielded in the 37th minute by the increasingly influential James Boyle who turned to kick his left footed strike over the bar, for the Shamrock’s first of the half. Good interplay by several of Roslea’s forward found Jordan on the ball again in the 42th minute and his confident shot again sailed over the bar. Roslea were on top with Newtown restricted to breakaway attacks which were confidently dealt with by Maguire, Lynam and Connolly however in one such foray their centre half Jones kicked a minor with 45 minutes gone. The Shamrocks continued to be very wasteful and it was not until Bartek Sczubert, with his first touch after being introduced as a sub, kicked a delightful score from out on the wing in the 49th minute that they increased their lead . Roslea were totally dominant as the Newtown boys looked as if they had ‘thrown in the towel’ and Jim Bob capitalised on yet another good pass from a long ball to score once again. Newtown’s next attack was turned over by the Shamrock’s defence and when they ball was worked through the hands to the other end of the pitch Shane McMahon was on hand to take the pass, dummy the keeper before hitting the net. Game over ! Roslea’s next score came a minute later when Bartek added to our tally with appointed free. The home side did manage another score in the 56th minute from a 13 metre free but they had given up the ghost by that stage. Two further Roslea points in the last two minutes from Shane Mohan and Ciaran Clerkin finished off the rout. Roslea will have tougher games that this but even though they were up against an under strength Newtown team, a lot of young players showed their potential to make the grade at this level and even be in with for a shout to get a run out on the Senior team in the months and years ahead. A good weekend all round with four league points in the bag.

Roslea team: Conor Mohan, Brian Maguire, Micky Beagan, Conor Lynam, Niall McMahon, John Connolly, Diarmuid McAleer, Gregory Connolly, James Boyle, Shane Mcmahon, Micheal Jordan, Ciaran Clerkin, Donal Mohan.

CLASH of the SHAMROCKS

The clash of the Shamrocks on Friday evening saw the previously unbeaten Teemore take on home side Roslea in Shamrock Park in Division 1. of the Reserve League . Roslea started smartly but registered three wides before a Teemore shot coming off the woodwork seemed to be the spark that sharpened their accuracy as a Ruairi McGuinness free registered their first score after 6 minutes. The visitors then had a let off as the same player hit the woodwork before a counter attacking move saw Michael Beagan rescue the home side at the expense of a ’45 which was duly converted by Teemore, two minutes later. End to end play saw both sides squander scoring opportunities before Ruiari kicked another from play on the quarter hour mark. Midfielder Diarmuid Mc Aleer kicked another fine point four minutes later after good approach work from Brian Maguire and Conor Lynam. Teemore were having difficulty containing Ruairi McGuinness who was on target again after a sweeping move the length of the pitch from Conor Mohan via James Boyle and Martin McClave. Roslea were in the ascendancy and when Ciaran Clerkin, who was impressing at half back, delivered a high ball in McGuinness got a flick to beat the Teemore keeper but was denied by the post. Conor Mohan in the Roslea goals showed good anticipation to deny the visitors a goal chance before a free, which was conceded in the ensuing defensive efforts, was converted by Ciaran Fitzpatrick. Martin McClave was next on the score sheet, having won a break at midfield, laid off and took the return to coolly slot his shot over the bar in the 22nd minute. Roslea were then rocked when a strong run, again from Fitzpatrick, ended with him despatching a fine strike past Mohan to level up matters with five remaining in the half. Roslea hit back immediately with a good score from the boot of Greg Connolly following sterling work by Mc Aleer, Lynam and McGuinness. Not to be outdone Teemore scored again on the stroke of half time when their wing half forward kicked a point from the right wing to leave things all square at the break.

Half Time Roslea 0-6 Teemore 1-3          

Teemore were fastest out of the blocks on the resumption and a strong period saw them kick three points in a seven minute period to seize the initiative. Roslea suffered a further blow when the lively McClave had to be replaced following a hefty challenge a minute later. The visitors dominance at this stage was further in evidence as they stuck for three more points before the 14th minute to take a commanding league. Roslea , who seemed to have left their energy in the dressing room were struggling before they registered their first score of the second half a minute later through Whitey’s replacement, the youthful Cathal Lynam - Gerry Sherlock had worked hard to gain possession before passing to Ruairi McGuinness who gave a precision pass to Cathal and his shot was deflected over the bar by keeper Drumm. This score seemed to inject a bit of momentum into the boys in green and when Conor Lynam went on a surging run down the right wing before passing inside to Michael Jordan, the latter crashed the ball to the net to narrow the gap in the 17th minute. Any notions that Teemore were fading were knocked on the head immediately when they responded in typical mountain road fashion to register three further points in the next seven minutes as the Roslea defence struggled. 24 Niall McMahon was replaced by Danny Mohan and Diarmuid McAleer went to full back to try and stem the flow. Roslea were staring defeat in the face as the trailed by four points with time running out but they stuck to their task and were rewarded with a tap over free which was converted by Ruairi McGuinness to leave a goal between the teams . Gerry Sherlock gained possession again before embarking on a mazy solo run through the Teemore rear guard, a high solo looked like possession was lost but instead it presented him with the opportunity and he palmed the ball to the net in the 27th minute. Just a point separated the teams now and Roslea threw everything into attack. Two good scoring opportunities were spurned however before Teemore who were holding on grimly, registered wide of their own. The ref was looking at his watch as Cathal Lynam launched another teasing ball into the danger area where James Boyle showed all his craft to rise highest to get the necessary touch to beat the Teemore keeper in the final minute. The vistors were afforded one last attack before Referee John Crudden blew the final whistle.

A great win by a youthful Roslea side who had plenty of encouraging performances on the night from some of their more inexperienced players like the two Lynams- Conor and Cathal, Ciaran Clerkin and Michael Jordan. These were complimented by the leadership shown by old hands Ruairi McGuinness and James Boyle and by Danny Mohan who steadied the ship when introduced into the game. Final Score Roslea 3-8 Teemore 1-12.

Roslea : Conor Mohan, Brian Maguire, Michael Beagan, John Connolly, Conor Lynam, Niall McMahon, Ciaran Clerkin, Diarmuid McAleer, Greg Connolly, Micheal Jordan, James Boyle, Gerry Sherlock, Donal Mohan, Ruairi McGuinness, Martin McClave.

Tempo Maguires v Roslea Shamrocks – Reserve league Division 1 – 10th May 2015

On a miserable wet day when the elements were always going to have huge influence on the game Roslea Juniors made the journey to Tempo for a league clash with the home side.

Roslea made all the early pressing and eventually opened the scoring in the 6th minute with an Aaron Mulligan free following a foul on Donal Mohan. Within a minute a cross field pass was excellently fielded by Martin Clave who turned his marker before despatching the ball over the bar to increase the lead. Tempo responded through a fine point from corner forward Conor McNally after a run down the middle with 10 minutes gone. Defences were on top and Roslea had solid performances at this stage from Brian Maguire and Conor Lynam. Scrappy play ensued as both teams struggled to deal with the greasy ball and slippery underfoot conditions and mistakes by both teams were plentiful. Indeed the conditions no doubt contributed to a nasty injury that was sustained by the Roslea full forward Aaron Mulligan who landed awkwardly when contesting a high ball into the square in the 18th minute. The game was held up as Aaron was subsequently stretchered from the pitch with a suspected broken leg. The rhythm of the game had been broken but Tempo were first to get back into the groove as Niall McCusker pointed in the 23th minute of play to level up the match. Within two minutes the Shamrocks restored their lead, this time following a sweet strike from Donal Mohan who took the ball on the overlap before pointing. Another point from a free from Ryan McCormick following a foul on Martin McClave increased their advantage two minutes later. As Roslea seemed to ease up as half time approached a long ball in was spilled by a Roslea defender into the path of the in running Niall McCusker who crashed the ball to the net past the hapless Ruairi McGuinness in the Roslea goals, with a minute left in the half. Not to be outdone Roslea countered again and when a run from Brendan Sherlock was ended with a pull down, Ryan McCormick kicked the resultant free from the right wing to equalise matters just before the half time whistle. Roslea will have been disappointed to go in level as they had created the better chances for scores in the first period.

Half time score Tempo 1-2 Roslea 0-5

The weather worsened as the second half got underway with driving rain really hampering the players’ efforts. Tempo settled the better after the break and hit a purple patch that yielded points from McCusker, Breen and McNally in the 32 th, 34th and 35th minute to establish a commanding three point lead. Roslea were struggling to impose themselves on the game despite the best efforts of Gregory Connolly and Diarmuid McAleer in midfield. Shane Mohan was coming more into the game at half back as he tried manfully to drive his team forward. Roslea introduced substitutes in the form of James Boyle, Dermie Reilly, Shane McMahon and Niall Beggan in order to exert an influence on the game. Slowly but surely this had the desired effect but it was not until the 41st minute, a pointed free by McCormick, that they made any inroads into the Tempo lead. Ryan repeated the dose a minute later when after a foul on Greg Connolly, he put another free over the bar. He was on the mark again in the 52th minute from another placed ball to tie up matters after he himself was fouled. Roslea were quite dominant at this point but poor handling and misplaced passes, understandable given the conditions, cost them dearly. The game was slowly grinding to a conclusion and a draw seemed inevitable when in a rare breakaway attack Tempo seized the initiative to point from play to take the lead with less than two minutes on the clock. The Shamrocks weren’t to be outdone however and when they worked the ball forward James Boyle showed all his experience to pop it over the crossbar to level the match. Indeed the boys in green had a chance to secure the win but a free in the dying seconds from a difficult angle drifted narrowly wide. A draw was a fair enough result for both teams on a day when the weather was undoubtedly the winner.

It was subsequently confirmed that big Aaron had indeed sustained a leg break necessitating surgery and our thoughts and best wishes for a speedy recovery are with him.

Final Score Tempo 1-6 Roslea 0-9

Roslea team:- Ruairi McGuinness. Brian Maguire, Mickey Beagan, John Connolly, Conor Lynam, Brendan Sherlock, Shane Mohan, Diarmuid McAleer, Gregory Connolly, Micheal Jordon, Ryan McCormick, Gery Sherlock, Donal Mohan, Aaron Mulligan, Martin McClave.

ROSLEA SHAMROCKS V LISNASKEA EMMETTS -19th April 2015

Roslea Juniors secured their first win of their 2015 league campaign with a 1-11 to 1-4 victory over Lisnaskea in Shamrock Park on Saturday evening. Despite the game being played as 13 a side, the Shamrocks fielded a fairly experimental team but what they lacked in experience they made up for with honest endeavour. Roslea opened the scoring with a point from half back Gerry Sherlock after a fine run down the right wing, in the 3rd minute. The home side continued to press and a further attack was rewarded with a ’45 which was converted by Aaron Mulligan in the 5th minute. Continued dominance was not reflected on the scoreboard Roslea registered a number of wides before they were caught in a breakaway attack.  A long ball saw John Connolly being isolated one and one with his man and his resultant challenge was deemed illegal and a penalty was awarded. Niall Oates’s kick deceived Conor Mohan in the Roslea goals and Skea shot into the lead. Conor Lynam and Mickey Beagan were holding sway at midfield however and after a number of futile attacks Whitey McClave got on the end of a breaking ball, beat his marker and crashed a screamer to the top corner of the net in the 15th minute: Roslea 1- 5 Skea 1-1.

Donie Mohan in the corner was showing well and after gaining possession he flicked a pass out to Aaron Mulligan who recorded a further point in the 19th minute. Conor Lynam fielded well, went on a scorching run down the middle and stuck over his first score two minutes later. Lisnaskea were being reduced to sporadic attacks and in one of these Niall Oates was adjudged to have been fouled and he sent his free over from the left wing for only Lisnaskea’s second score of the half. Not to be outdone, in the next attack, Donie Mohan, won possession out in front, sold a number of dummies on the edge of the large square, beat his man and sent over the bar in the 26th minute:

Half time Score Roslea 1-5 Skea 1-1.

In the second period, the Shamrocks started as left off with Whitey and Ciaran Maguire hoovering up any breaking ball in the midfield but it was not until the 38th minute that they raised a white flag after a sweet strike from Donie Mohan. Skea responded through an Oates’s free and followed this up with a John Rice point in the 47th minute to leave three between them. Aaron Mulligan was on the end of another long ball in, fielded well and popped it over the bar two minutes later. Brian Maguire, Ciaran Clerkin and Shane Mohan were standing firm in defence and after the latter mopped up a break, broke forward before releasing to Donie Mohan who pointed on the turn for his third of the day. Conor Lynam increased the Shamrocks lead with a fine point after another long run from midfield in the 53th minute. Gerry Sherlock surged forward again on an overlap and his efforts were rewarded with another excellent point a minute later. Skea responded with a point, this time from the boot of Chris McCabe after good interplay by the Skea forwards. Roslea saw out the game however and registered another point from the ‘on fire’ Gerry Sherlock a minute from time to run out winners on a Roslea 1-11 Lisnaskea 1-4 scoreline.

Roslea;- Conor Mohan, Brian Maguire, John Connolly, Gerry Sherlock, Shane Mohan, Ciaran Clerkin, Mickey Beagan, Conor Lynam, Martin McClave, Ryan McCormack, Ciaran Maguire, Aaron Mulligan, Donal Mohan. Subs used Cathal Jordan,  Cathal Lynam and Mark Mohan.

 

Junior's Away to Derrygonnelly

11/4/2015 - The Roslea Junior side produced their best performance of the season so far, away to Derrygonnelly, but came up short by three points at the final whistle. There were encouraging displays from some of the younger players in Cathal & Conor Lynam, Michael Jordan and Shane Mohan with Danny Mohan and Brendan Sherlock showing good leadership. Next game for this team is at home against Lisnaskea on Saturday evening.

Report 2014

Similarly to our seniors our juniors entered the Reserve A Championship competition as holders and after negotiating a quarter final against Derrygonnelly and a semi-final against Tempo we found ourselves in another final V St Pats which we played in Lisnaskea. This game was in the melting pot until the final minutes when Ruarai Mc Guinness bagged a superb goal to put us in the driving seat, which gave us the platform for the win.

Our juniors featured in Erne Cup 1 in 2014 and played 18 games, winning 16 and losing 2, one of which we conceded due to the timing with one of our senior championship games and finishing top of the table on 32 points. This set us up for a league final against St Pats which we won in Brewster Park to clinch the domestic double double in Fermanagh.
