    Ballymount Celtic 4 - 2 Terenure FC 3rds

    The time for excuses is rapidly coming to an end for Terenure 3rds as the team again failed to live up to it's potential in this cup encounter. Ballymount have made a poor start to their season a division below us so it was always going to be important to start well and put them under pressure early. Unfortunately the game began in exactly the opposite manner and within two minutes Ballymount had taken the lead. Giving away cheap goals is rapidly becoming this team's Achilles heel and this was no different as we were opened up far too easily at the back, giving the striker an easy chance.

    Terenure FC v Kilbarrack United

    Terenure FC will face one of the biggest games in the clubs history as they take on AUL giants Kilbarrack United in the Leinster Senior Cup this Saturday in the VEC Grounds, Terenure. Reigning UCFL Premier Division, Challenge Cup and Premier Shield winners Terenure will have to be at their very best if they want to upset the odds against last season’s AUL Premier and FAI Junior Cup runners up Kilbarrack.

The club has high expectations for all of the senior sides this season and the early signs are very promising. Training will continue in Bushy Park on Tuesday and Thursday for ...

    Terenure FC 3rds 1 – 3 Limekiln

    Wednesday evening drew down the final curtain on what turned out to be a long old season to forget for Terenure FC 3rds. The game proved to be a fitting finale; a good first half, composed, hard-working and effective, followed by a second half collapse and defeat. We actually started this game with more of our regular team than the meeting with the same opposition from the previous week and that seemed to help to make us a more effective unit in the first half. There was a better link between the defence and midfield and we were more composed in possession.

    Limekiln 5 – 2 Terenure FC 3rds

    Writing these reports is starting to become some sort of ritual torture at this stage. With an ever deepening injury crisis there was a danger we wouldn’t be able to field a team at all for this game, but a few of the lads from the seconds came out and did us a favour, despite their own huge relegation decider looming on Wednesday. Even with the number of changes to the team, including my own first start in a month, it was pretty much the same old story. We tried to play nice football but made too many basic errors and a very organised and experienced Limekiln side capitalised on them.

    Terenure FC 3rds 2 - 4 AGP 2nds

    After the carnage of Wednesday it was hard to know what to expect on Saturday afternoon. It was agreed that there needed to be a wholesale change in attitude and performance for this game and from the early stages of play this was in evidence. In the first 45 minutes we were pressing high up the pitch, playing at a good tempo and keeping AGP on the back foot. There was a minor hiccup when we conceded a soft penalty for handball but justice was served when Dylan saved comfortably. From that point we looked much the more likely to open the scoring with David Fennelly going closest with a strike off the post.

    Walkinstown Athletic 7 - 0 Terenure FC 3rds



    So the nightmare continues...

    I was back on the sideline for this one but still ruled out of action due to injury. The game had just kicked off when I arrived and there was little of note happening in the early stages. Walkinstown maybe shading it but we were well in the game. The opening goal summed up a lot of our problems this season, a ball into the box, a couple of chances to clear fluffed and it breaks for the striker to score.

    Terenure FC 3rds 2 - 1 Fortunestown Celtic
    Terenure FC 3rds 0 - 3 Three Trout Rovers
    Terenure FC 3rds 2 - 3 St Mary's Boys

    This season has taken a major turn for the worse in recent weeks, for me personally and the team as a whole. My cameo from the bench in the dead rubber shield game with Grant resulted in an ankle injury that's kept me out of the last four games and looks like it will keep me out of our last four also. In the meantime we've been dragged right into the relegation battle with defeats to close rivals Three Trout and St Mary's Boys in consecutive games following a narrow win over whipping boys Fortunestown.

    Walkinstown Athletic 7 – 2 Terenure FC 3rds
    St Mary’s Boys 4 – 3 Terenure FC 3rds
    Terenure FC 3rds 1 – 1 Grant City

    We went into Monday evening’s game, away to Walkinstown, with high hopes of making it to the shield final but those hopes were left smashed as we dramatically fell apart in the second half of the game. In many ways this has been a strange season, in the early part there was no real regular squad, but as it’s progressed the team has developed and apart from a lack of a regular goalkeeper we have a solid and reliable squad. Results too have generally improved and we were looking at the shield competition as a way of demonstrating the quality of our squad, but after Monday we were left wondering where it all went wrong.

    UCFL Div 3. Shield

    Three Trout Rovers 3 - 5 Terenure FC 3rds

    I never like missing games and that especially goes for games we win, but I was delighted to hear the news from Greystones on Saturday. According to reports the referee was fairly reluctant to allow the game to go ahead due to the rapidly deteriorating conditions on the Wicklow coast but with the teams eager to go ahead the standing water was ignored.

    St Mary’s Boys 1 – 1 Terenure FC 3rds

    Both teams were playing for the third time in six days on Monday night and had come into the game on the back of weekend wins. Mary’s Boys look to have completely turned their early season form around as they trashed Grant City 5 – 1 last Wednesday before beating a good VEC 3rds team 3 – 1 on Saturday to leap frog us in the table. That means we are now well embroiled in a relegation fight so this game took on added significance.

    UCFL Div. 3 Shield
    06 April 2013
    Terenure FC 3rds 5 – 1 Fortunestown Celtic

    This week we matched up against teams from the two extremities of the league and produced results to match. Kill are one of the three outstanding teams in the league while Fortunestown are tailed off at the bottom and that gap couldn’t have been more obvious. We travelled to Kill on Wednesday evening with our manager away but expecting a squad of 13 to travel Unfortunately there was some confusion with our keeper and he never arrived and with our left winger getting lost it was bare bones at kick off and yours truly stuck in nets again.

    Despite the poor preparation and barely getting eleven on the pitch for kick off we didn’t start too badly. Kill are known to be a good footballing side but the bobbly pitch wasn’t doing them any favours and we were putting pressure on them and forcing them to rush passes. The early exchanges were fairly uneventful with neither goal really threatened. Kill did show flashes of good movement and their wingers and big number ten always looked dangerous when they got a run at us.

    St Mary’s Crumlin 2nds 2 – 1 Terenure FC 3rds

    It will come as no surprise that all games were off this weekend but I just realised I never wrote a report on last week’s game so here we go. This one probably should have been called off too, the game beforehand left the pitch an absolute mud bath and if it wasn’t for the amount of games called off recently I think both teams and the ref would have gladly abandoned it. Deciding to go ahead meant it was more a game of endurance and effort than a football match and unfortunately our opponents seemed to want it that bit more.

    Terenure FC 3rds 1 – 0 Walkinstown Athletic

    After a not so brief hiatus in the season we were finally back in action on Saturday, eleven weeks after beating AGP. Looking for a third win in a row it was hard to know what to expect after so long without a game. We knew Walkinstown were a dangerous team and they ran, run away league leaders, Chapelizod close last week so they had to be taken seriously. With snow falling, rumours that the park rangers wanted to call off the pitch and the ref arriving late pre-match preparations weren’t ideal, but, thankfully we seemed to handle the delays better than our opponents.

    AGP 2nds 2 - 3 Terenure FC 3rds

    With many games cancelled on Saturday due to waterlogged pitches we knew we were going to be in for a hard slog when we had to switch from, the unplayable, Bushy Park to AGP’s home pitch, in Griffeen Valley Park, and so it turned out. The pitch looked remarkably good when we arrived but within minutes of the kick of the midfield was a mud bath and we were struggling to adapt to the conditions.
