Super league resumes Sun 19th July Manorhamilton Rangers v Carbury Fc

Of all the teams hit hard by the lockdown, Manorhamilton Rangers Senior team must have felt their dreams of a Sligo Southern Hotel Super League title looked dead and buried by the Covid-19 crisis. However with soccer returning earlier than normal, the club will get the chance to land the Sligo Leitrim & District Super League title. Manorhamilton Rangers have a big crossover with GAA clubs in the north Leitrim area and with the Leitrim Club championship getting underway the same weekend, it adds to the challenge facing the team but manager Thomas McDonald feels that with the club on the brink of something special that there will be goodwill afforded to the team. He states the tempo at training is intense and focused. There's a hunger there and collective feeling that if its maintained this could be our year. The lockdown came at the wrong time for us as we were flying. That said we have had the chance to get back a few key players from injury and the lads have all been doing their own individual training and it shows. The title race could go down to the wire, it is the first game back that could decide the destination of the title as we take on Carbury at home in Bee Park on Sunday July 19. our focus is all on that game and we will take each remaining game in the same frame of mind. We expect a good crowd will turn up to support the team. This will present problems with the current regulations but we are confident that the club will have a safety plan in place for that day and will ask all to comply with that plan when its announce. Manor lead the table by a point from the Sligo men but the visitors have a game in hand. Carbury went for a number of years without a defeat in League football until Manor Rangers defeated them earlier this year. A repeat victory would be a huge boost with five games left to play. Manor top the table with 37 points from 14 games, suffering just one loss and one draw all season while Carbury have 36 points from 13 games, 12 wins and just the solitary loss to the north Leitrim men. Carton Utd lie in third place with 34 points from 15 games but, in truth, it looks like Sunday week's clash in Bee Park will be the title decider!

Manorhamilton Rangers go top of Super League

Manorhamilton Rangers are Super League leaders following a comprehensive 5/1 victory over a very young but committed Balisodare Utd. Manor took the lead following a precision pass from goalkeeper James Glancy who found Paul Logan. He turned brilliantly and hit an unstoppable left footed shot to the top right corner for 1/0. Manor increased their lead following a long throw from Brian Mc Donald who picked out Paul Logan. He teed up Paddy Woulfe who shot to the net from forty yards. Balisodare were restricted to long range efforts as Manor dominated the lions share of possession. Manors third goal came as a result of exquisite passing between Brian McDonald , Patrick Woulfe and Alan Hickey. Hickey putting the ball through to Seamus Ryder who confidently turned and beat the keeper for 3/0. Ballisodare came a bit more into and they did find the net when Darragh Healy hit a super strike that came back off the post only to be followed up by Luke Middleton who converted for 3/1. The second half was more of the same from Manor dominating proceedings. Kieran Brick hit the side netting and Alan Hickey struck the crossbar from a corner. Manors fourth goal came from some dogged and brave play by Paul Logan saw him taken out of it in the box. Alan Hickey converted the penalty for 4/1. Manors final goal came from a long range clearance from James Glancy which found Shane Walsh who comfortably beat a defender and the outrushing keeper. Some great performances around the field in a great team performance. Most notably from Anthony McDonald , Paddy Woulfe, Paul Clancy and Paul Logan. Man of the match however goes to Brian McDonald who dominated the midfield battle and his endless energy which caused all sorts of problems for Ballisodare.
