O’Sullivan Scores In Wexford Rout

Kilcock man Patrick O’Sullivan found the back of the net in his side Wexford FC’s 5-1 victory away to Cabinteely on Friday night.

O’Sullivan, who replaced Jack Larkin on the 84th minute, put the icing on the cake two minutes later for the men from the South East with a composed finish as they picked up a bady needed win, in what must surely go down as one of the most surprising results of the season.

The former Longford Town under-19 player and current Maynooth University student fired into the top corner of the net to seal the victory for the visitors after Charlie Smith teed it up for him with a pass from just outside the penalty area.

The result now sees Wexford move off the bottom of the table, while Cabinteely could drop out of the play off position should UCD defeat Shamrock Rovers second string on Saturday.

Kilduff nominated for June player of the month

Kilcock’s Shelbourne FC striker Ciarán Kilduff has been nominated for the SWAI and SSE Airtricity League player of the month award following some fine performances and crucial goals for the Tolka Park side in June.

Kilduff, who is the sole representative from the first division, is there on merit following goals in important games against Drogheda United and Limerick FC, as The Reds won all three games during the month, extending their winning run to seven in a row in the process.

The former Dundalk striker has also been a pivotal target man, bringing more than just his finishing prowess to Ian Morris’ league leading side. His work rate up top is immense, winning and holding up the ball on almost every attack. A perfect fit for Shelbourne as they continue their push for promotion.

The six-man shortlist for June’s SWAI Player of the Month is as follows: Danny Mandroiu (Bohemians), Sean Gannon (Dundalk) ,John Mountney (Dundalk), Ciaran Kelly (St Patrick’s Athletic), Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe (Derry City) and Ciaran Kilduff (Shelbourne).
