Vee Rovers Notes – Last Weekend August 2012
Vee Rovers 8 - Clerihan 1
The Juniors began their campaign at home to Clerihan in the 3rd Division shield. The away side took the initiative after fifteen minutes with a well taken goal. Chris Platt restored parity after 35 minutes following a knock-down from Martin Grant. Cormac Crowe gave Rovers the lead on 44minutes and so the Vee led at the break. Darren Hannigan gave the home side a two goal cushion after 63minutes and from there on it became a rout for Rovers. Chris Platt scored a great solo goal after 70 minutes and further goals from Jimmi Haddu, Darren Hannigan, Warren O Brien and Ronan Dwyer gave Rovers their biggest win in a number of seasons.
Clonmel Town B 4 - Vee Rovers 1
The under 14s opened their season with an away game against Clonmel Town B at Ferryhouse. Having dominated the first half, in which the Vee missed a penalty, the side was caught with a sucker-punch on the stroke of half time. Dion Morrissey levelled the game for Rovers 10 minutes into the second half from the penalty spot. In an evenly contested game the stronger Town side began to dominate in the last ten minutes and eventually ran out 4-1 winners.
