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.

I can't offer much in the way of match reporting either as I've missed all the games due to other commitments (don't let your bride to be know you're injured if you still want to go see your team play lads!). Against Kill there was positive signs, taking the lead twice, but fading in the second half, an experiment in formation didn't really work against Fortunestown, but the win was the most important outcome and at least it was recorded, Three Trout recorded a second consecutive 3-0 win in Bushy Park, where last season they won a competitive league game for the first time ever and then a 2-1 half time lead was again squandered against St Mary's.

Tomorrow (15 May) we face Walkinstown and on Saturday AGP. We beat both sides narrowly in the league earlier in the season, but were on the end of a humiliating defeat to Walkinstown in the shield. Six points will guarantee survival in division three, anything else and we are vulnerable. The final two games will be home and away to shield winners Limekiln who have had a very successful second half to the season and points against them could well be hard to come by.

The league table makes for poor reading at the moment from our point of view; the goals conceded column points to our particular weakness this season.
