Enniscorthy under 14s recorded a good win in their opening cup game away to Edenderry winning by 50 points to 5 on Saturday afternoon in good weather conditions but on a very muddy pitch which made good fast running a major difficulty . During the first ten minutes Enniscorthy handled a lot of ball but due to errors they had a very nervous start. Because of the poor under foot conditions it was the forwards who had to put in some heavy work in the rucks and they were rewarded in the 12th minute when Jamie Roban dived in for a try in the corner after a superb off load by Daidhi Medcalfe.Within 2 minutes Sebastain Pim was in under the posts when he cut through the home 22 and brushed off several tackles and Tom white converted. With the forwards of Alex Horan, Lee Martin, Luke Doyle, J.P. Farrell, Conor Mackey, Barry Doyle, Declan Geraghty and Donal Harrington rucking and tackling well it was only a matter of time before Donal Harrington powered through the middle and scored under the posts in the 20th minute and Tom white converted and this try was followed up another try in the corner with a 20m dash by Cian Fitzhenry down the wing after a good passing movement by the back line of Kevin O Connor, Mike Kelly, Cian Fitzhenry, Sebastain Pim, Tom White, Jamie Roban and Daidhi Medcalfe to leave the half time score 24 points to nil. Enniscorthy started the second half much better and now the backline started to get some momentum and outhalf Mike Kelly scored two tries within a five minute period and he converted the second try. Enniscothy had introduced William Durnan into the backline at this stage and Ciaran Breen and Cameron Butler into the forwards to keep the momentum going. Edenderry got their only try in the corner after 12 minutes which they didn’t convert. Enniscorthy finished out the game with two mores tries, one from Daidhi Medcalfe and the other from Declan Geraghty who got over the line with 4 Edenderry players hanging out of him after they failed to bring him to the ground, Sebastain Pim converted both and Enniscorthy go through to the next round with a home tie versus Longford on March 2nd.

Clogher Valley 19 Enniscorthy 27Enniscorthy reached the All Ireland Junior Cup final with an impressive win against the Ulster Junior Cup Champions at Clogher Valley last Saturday. Although the match was played in wet conditions on a sticky pitch the visitors backline scored 3 excellent tries. However most of the credit for victory must go to their pack who more than matched the bigger Clogher Valley unit.Clogher started well and playing with the wind kicked a penalty after 10 mins. Enniscorthy then began moving the ball at every opportunity and eventually this paid off after 20 mins. scum half Alan Jacob broke down the blind side before he passed to prop Ciaran Murphy who with an excellent pass put Lock Sean through a gap. Sean broke 2 tackles before off-loading to winger Ivan Jacob who dived over in the left corner. Ivan Poole converted from the touchline.Soon after this Enniscorthy struck again when right winger David Dunne tapped a quick penalty on the half way line. He showed great pace beating 3 defenders before he transferred inside to Ivan Jacob who raced in under the posts from 20 metres. Ivan Poole converted this putting the visitors 11 points ahead. Poole added 3 points with another penalty just after Clogher had kicked their 2nd penalty. Clogher came back into the game and scored an excellent try in the left corner just on half time to leave the score 17-11 for the visitors.The second half was a much more even affair with the big home pack thriving in the wet conditions. However despite losing flanker Tony Ryan through injury the Enniscorthy pack stood firm and were more than a match for their opponents. Enniscorthy were awarded a penalty from wide out 10 minutes into the 2nd period which Poole converted with an excellent strike. Clogher were persistent and with only 10 minutes left kicked a penalty to leave just 6 points between the sides.Enniscorthy responded immediately with a well-executed try straight from the training ground which sealed the victory. From a scrum inside the visitors 22 metre line Alan Jacob transferred to Poole who dummied to the outside before transferring inside to sub winger David O’ Dwyer. A gap opened and he was in under posts before a hand was laid on him. Poole converted keeping his 100% record (5 kicks out of 5 on the day). With the last play of the game Clogher scored a consolation try in the corner.Enniscorthy now play Division 1A champions Tullamore in the final on Saturday February 9th. The venue has yet to be announced. Team: Paddy Waters, Luke Goff, Ciaran Murphy, Declan O’ Brien, Sean Wall, Tony Ryan, Mitchel Dalton, Timmy Morrissey, Alan Jacob, Peter Kerins, Ivan Jacob, Ivan Poole, Ross Barbour (Capt), David Dunne, Richard Dunne.Subs: Johnny Leech for Tony Ryan (25 mins), Naoise Dunbar for Timmy Morrissey (60 mins), John Bracken for Declan O’ Brien (65 mins) Fiacre Ryan for David Dunne (65 mins), Evan Lett for P Kerins (70 mins), David O’ Dwyer for Ivan Jacob (70 mins), Robbie O’ Connor for C Murphy (70 mins).

Enniscorthy 15 Donaghadee 8
Enniscorthy’s expertise at winning in cup competitions came to the fore again on Saturday evening last (Dec 15th) at the Ross Road with a fine win over the Ulster Junior Cup winners Donaghadee to qualify for the Irish Junior Cup semi-final. This was a very entertaining game throughout with both set of backs prepared to move the ball at every opportunity.Enniscorthy struggled in the early stages of the first half but the breakthrough came in the 26th minute when lock forward Sean Wall won a turnover ball in his own 22, which scrum half Alan Jacob flashed out quickly to centre Ross Barbour who set left winger Ivan Jacob free with a quick pass. The winger, who had full back Richard Dunne in support on his inside, went on to score a brilliant individual try in the corner. Ivan Poole missed the conversion. Two minutes later it got even better for the home side when scrum half Alan Jacob broke down the middle of the pitch before passing to flanker Ronnie White who set Richard Dunne free. The full back was tackled 3 metres from the line and his superb off load allowed Ross Barbour cross the line for the second try. Ivan Poole converted this try.Centre Nigel Barker pulled a penalty back for the visitors and this left the score 12 – 3 at the interval.Enniscorthy dominated the game territorially in the 2nd half mainly through their hard working pack and some excellent kicking from out half Poole. However they had just one score to show for their supremacy, an Ivan Poole penalty. The visitors excellent No 7 scored a well-deserved try with the last play of the game to leave the final score 15-8. The Man of the Match award went to flanker Mitchel Dalton and there were fine performances from debutants Timmy Morrissey and Willie Dunne. Both Lock Sean Wall and Prop Paddy Waters had big games. Half backs Alan Jacob and Ivan Poole controlled the game with some excellent tactical work.Manager David Wrafter said afterwards “This was by far our best performance of the season in terms of attitude. Along with our 2 long term injuries in the pack (John Howe and Tony Ryan) we had 3 more injuries during the week with Declan O’ Brien, Johnny Leech and John Bracken all out for today. Their replacements Willie Dunne, Timmy Morrissey and Ronnie White all stepped up to the plate and had excellent games.”Enniscorthy have drawn Clougher Valley (Ulster) away in the semi-final on Jan 26th. In the other semi-final Kanturk (Munster) are at home to Tullamore. Team: Ciaran Murphy ,Luke Goff, Paddy Waters, Willie Dunne, Sean Wall, Ronnie White, Mitchel Dalton, Timmy Morrissey, Alan Jacob, Ivan Poole, Ivan Jacob, Damien Mc Cabe, Ross Barbour (Capt), David O’ Dwyer, Richard Dunne.Subs: Fiacre Ryan for D O’ Dwyer(70 mins),Robbie O’ Connor for Timmy Morrissy(70 mins),Pat Doyle, Tom Ryan, Evan Lett

Video of Match Highlights They had to wait 23 years to lift the Provincial Towns Cup again but Captain Ross Barbour got the opportunity at 5.45pm last Sunday evening in Portarlington to lift one of the oldest Cups in Sportafter his team Enniscorthy had beaten Tullow 23-17.It’s their 6th win and to do it in Centenary year makes it even better for the club who had to battle hard to win this one.They were hot favourite’s going into the final and when Captain Ross Barbour weaved his way through for the first of three tries that favourites tag look justified. The ball spilled out from the side of a ruck and Barbour executed the score with aplomb after 15 minutes. Ivan Poole had opened the scoring with a penalty. Enniscorthy were moving the ball with ease but did make a lot of unforced errors and their indiscretions gave Tullow Out half William Canavan the opportunity to keep the Tullow men in the match. The superb 21 year old kick 3 excellent penalty goals to keep his side in touch. Hugh O’Neill finished off a fine move to make it 15- 6 at the interval. Wingers Hughie O’Neill and Fiacre Ryan were like scavages and pounced on every opportunity and were rewarded with a try apiece. Ivan Poole was unlucky to hit the cross bar with another kickTullow finished the half well but were relying on their forward power and the boot of young Canavan too much really..Enniscorthy’s front row of young Ciaran Murphy stood up to the task along with veteran Hooker John Howe and Luke Goff.The second half saw Enniscorthy still prepared to move the ball and again they were rewarded for the enterprise with the 3rd try and to many observers at the time maybe the decisive score. Tullow didn’t go away however because they are known for their fighting qualities.They didn’t produce Sean O’Brien and Bernard Jackman for no reason. The door did open for them when Enniscorthy’s veteran second row and Coach Declan O’Brien received a yellow card from referee Eanna O’Dowd. This was perhaps now with 20 minutes remaining the opportunity for the Tullow men to take advantage. The opposite happened in fact and the sinbin produce inspirational stuff from the S’corthy men as they grew in stature and really rose to the challenge of being down to 14 men.. This was highlighted by one terrific surging run from John “nipper “Howe. The excellence of the back row of Mitchel Dalton, Graham Murphy and Tony Ryan was inspirational in that period. William Canavan did kick another penalty to close the gap to 20-12 . It was typical Cup rugby with not an a yard from either team given away cheaply’ Tullow inspired by their Captain and Lock Forward Frank Murphy asked for one more effort from his wary team and they were rewarded after sustained pressure inside Enniscorthy’ 22 with a try from their wing forward Rob Porter … The clock was against them however as it was almost the last action of the match. From the drop off Tullow had to run the ball but Man of the Match Tony Ryan put in a superb driving tackle to stop Alan Deering breaking through. Replacement John Bracken was in support. There was no doubt at the final whistle that the better team on the day won. Ivan Poole at out half deserves credit for keeping his team on the front foot. Enniscorthy looked a they had all season a well drilled look about them. They also had the desired combination of youth and experience and there ability to move the ball at pace though the backs was really the crucial difference. It was a cutting edge that Tullow didn’t have. Tullow deserve immense credit for never throwing in the towel they just kept coming and coming back at Enniscorthy whose defence held firm. The organisational skills of Damien McCabe in the backs and the leadership of veteran Declan O’Brien were also crucial. They were tactically very astute. It was of course a particularly brilliant day for Scrumhalf Alan Jacob whose brother Daryl had won the Aintree Grand national on the day before.There were many contenders for Man of The Match but the blond locks of Tony Ryan were seen in almost every area of the pitch that Tullow attacked and his tackle count was extraordinary.You won’t win matches like this unless the team plays as a team and as team manager David Wrafter said at the end that’s what Enniscorthy did today.Tullow had the three Hanbridge brothers in fine form and an inspirational Captain in Frank Murphy.Their young out half William Canavan deserves a special mention also.The celebrations went long into the night on Sunday night.Team: Ciaran Murphy, John Howe, Luke Goff, Jonathan Leech, Declan O’Brien, Mitchel Dalton, Tony Ryan, Graham Murphy, Alan Jacob, Ivan Poole, Hughie O’Neill, Ross Barbour, Damien McCabe, Fiachra Ryan, Richard Dunne..

Today in Kilkenny RFC the Ross Barbour led Enniscorthy beat a tough Newbridge team 22 - 16 in extra-time to reach the Provincial Towns Cup Final for the first time since 1995.This was a terrific high-tempo game played with pace and passion where the advantage swung from one team to the other over the hundred minutes and the result in doubt to the end.Enniscorthy started well and dominated possession and territory but no reward missing an early drop goal attempt from Ivan Poole and pushing a penalty wide of the posts.Clean breaks by Richie Dunne from full back and Fiachre Ryan came to nothing as the last pass spilled or knocked-on close to the line while the Newbridge defence scrambled and hassled the Enniscorthy attack into mistakes and were able to clear their lines.Newbridge scored first when a dubious penalty for a late tackle in their 22 was awarded where the ball landed meters inside the Enniscorthy half and full back Karl Darragh landed the difficult kick.With Ennniscorthy on the attack again the ball was turned over and Darragh kicked cross-field for winger Dave Hogan to score from 60 meters and again Darragh landed the conversion.With John Bracken and Johnny Leech now controlling the line-out Enniscorthy powered forward again and only strong defence and a strange decision for a 22 drop-out when Fiachre Ryan touched down, left it 10-0 at half-time.Newbridge started the second half well and ran the ball wide with winger Padraig Mahon twice bundled into touch by Hughie O'Neill and then missed a kickable penalty before Ivan Poole was successful to make it 10-3.The Enniscorthy pack marshalled by Declan O'Brien with Tony Ryan and Nipper Howe making the hard yards were now picking and driving into the Newbridge pack before Alan Jacob released the outside backs and the efforts gained a penalty converted by outhalf Poole after backchat moved it forward 10 metres.Newbridge tried to regroup by launching garryowns and chasing but defiant catches by prop Luke Goff and O'Neill on the wing allowed Enniscorthy to counter attack and again pack pressure with Ciaran Murphy and sub Paddy Waters carrying well, forced a series of penalties to move Ivan into range 10-9 with nearly 13 minutes to go and game on.However the black and yellow forwards pressured the kick-off receiver and Darragh landed the kick and then another after an Enniscorthy mistake to bring it to 16-9 and 5 minutes on the clock.Now Enniscorthy gathered themselves and a huge effort with great breaks by Ross Barbour and Ivan Poole supported by wing forward Mitchell Dalton who covered every inch of the pitch allowed the pack to set up Damien McCabe to cut the line off a planned move and touch down beside the post for a match saving try converted by Ivan and 16-16 and 2 minutes to go.Enniscorthy regathered with a magnificent catch by Declan O'Brien and worked a last gasp drop goal effort for Ivan Poole which narrowly missed to leave the score at 16 all at the final whistle and extra-time to decide the match.Extra-time and how the Enniscorthy team raised their game again as constant pressure and offensive tackling forced mistakes from Newbridge and a penalty for a 19 -16 lead at half-time of extra time before Ivan Poole slotted another penalty to go 22-16 with 6 minutes remaining.Newbridge now ran every ball desperately searching for a gap to force a winner but superb defence by Barbour,McCabe and sub David O'Dwyer and crunching cover tackles by Goff and the back row ensured that Enniscorthy held out,defeated a very good Newbridge team and reached a Towns Cup final against south-east neighbours Tullow which will take place in Portarlington on Sunay 15th April at 3pm.Enniscorthy team; Richie Dunne, Hughie O'Neill, Ross Barbour(Capt.), Damien McCabe, Fiachre Ryan, Ivan Poole, Alan Jacob, Tony Ryan, Mitchell Dalton, Declan O'Brien, John Bracken, Johnny Leech, Luke Goff, John "Nipper" Howe, Ciaran Murphy Subs; Paddy Waters, Pat Doyle, Ronnie White, Thomas Stamp, Jack Kelly, David O'Dwyer, David Shore.Management; Dave Wrafter, John Murphy, Graham Murphy.

Enniscorthy qualified for the Provincial towns Cup Semi Final with a fine win against visitors Skerries 13-12.Both these two teams had produced a cracker in the League 5 weeks ago and whilts this match might not have matched it for scores it was still an excellent tactical game.Skerries have already won the Leinster League Division 1A title with Enniscorthy finishing 3rd so it was always going to be close.The home team started really well and were rewarded with an early try.Terrific early pressure from the forwards eventually created a try for fullback and Captain Ross Barbour. An inside pass from Damien McCabe set the fullback free.Jack Kelly kicked the conversion. Enniscorthy then suffered a body blow when they lost wing forward Tony Ryan with a head injury after 10 minutes. John Bracken replaced him.Chris Keane kicked a penalty to reduce the lead. It was a tight match and Enniscorthy’s forwards were keeping the opposition firmly on the back foot.Jack Kelly kicked another penalty to give the home team a 10-3 lead.The Second half saw Enniscorthy again defended very well with Declan O’Brien and John “Nipper” Howe in particular outstanding.Chris Keane kicked 2 penalties to reduce the lead.Enniscorthy continued to take the match to the visitors and again Jack Kelly extended the lead with another fine penalty. He missed another opportunity with 10 minutes to go as Keane kicked his 4th attempt at the posts.Enniscorthy introduced another one of their 20 year old’s Tomas Stamp in the final 10 minutes and he didn’t look out of place. Skerries exerted a lot of pressure in the final 8 minutes but Enniscorthy defended magnificently.They finished on top as they had started and might have had another score when Fiachra Ryan made a break but was caught.Enniscorthy who last won the Cup in 1989 are now up against Newbridge in the semi-final on the 1st April.Team Manager David Wrafter “ I am delighted for the lads. We were missing some of our key player’s through injury but their replacements really stepped up to the mark. Jack Kelly who is just 20 handled the out half position with real ease. It was a composed performance. Ciaran Murphy is just 21,Tony Ryan is 20, John Bracken, Pat Doyle,David O’Dwyer and Thomas Stamp are all just 20 which is fantastic that the young lads are coming through .I have to praise some of the old dogs today who were great. John Howe was the Man of the Match, Declan O’Brien showed all his experience, Paddy Waters, Luke Goff, Johnny Leech and Mitchel Dalton and John Bracken filled in brilliantly for Tony (Ryan) when he had to go off. It’s our Centenary year and it would be nice to get to the Final but we can’t think that far ahead yet because Newbridge will be no pushover. One match at a time but we are delighted”Team : Luke Goff, John Howe, Ciaran Murphy, Johathon Leech, Paddy Waters (Thomas Stamp), Declan O’Brien ,Mithchel Dalton, Tony Ryan (John Bracken),Alan Jacob, Jack Kelly, Hughie O’Neill, Damien McCabe, Ross Barbour ( Capt), Fiachra Ryan, Richard Dunne,Subs Pat Doyle, David O’Dwyer, Stephen Dalton.Fixtures2nd’s Cup Enniscorthy vs Kilkenny in Kilkenny Sunday 25th March @ 3pm-

IT WAS understandably a nervy performance considering what was at stake and, as a result, they made hard work of it on Sunday last, but Enniscorthy did eventually win this crucial Leinster League Division 1B tie to ensure promotion to next season's top flight.Wicklow were leading at half-time 9-7 after the home side stuttered their way through it.They did improve in the second-half, as outhalf Ivan Poole scored a superb try to put Enniscorthy in front, and he then kicked the conversion. Poole had also scored a try in the opening half.Scrum-half Alan Jacob picked up an injury very early in the match but his replacement, Ian Hemmingway, had a fine game. Declan O'Brien also picked up a calf injury and he was replaced by one of last year’s Under-19s, John Bracken.Team manager Stellah Sinnott said: ‘I am very happy for the lads. It has been a long season and okay we stumbled a little bit in the last couple of weeks, but we got to the finishing line. The last ten minutes today were as bad as standing on the line in Croke Park, it was really nervy as we didn't want to blow it and have to travel to the league leaders, Garda, next Sunday looking for a win’.‘It is now that the hard work begins as we prepare for next season. We need to strenghten the team in certain areas and we will start on that very soon. There is also another dimension to next season, as we will have to play our matches on Saturday and there are quite a lot of the lads lucky enough to have work who are working on Saturdays, but I suppose it is a nice problem to have.
