Soccer - Thomastown United Junior A side claimed back 2nd place in the K&DL Premier Division last Sunday morning with a 1-0 away win over Clover Utd. In a blustery Rathdowney it took until the 2nd half before Thomastowns Seanie Brennan could break the deadlock and score a cheeky chip over the keeper to give United all 3 points. The Junior A’ s are away next Sunday against Bridge Utd B in the last 16 of the McCalmount Cup. All support greatly appreciated.

The Junior B’s were home to Fort Rangers in the McCalmount Cup last Sunday morning in United Park. After an intense game Thomastown were unfortunate to come away rom the game on the wrong side of a 3-2 score line. On target for Thomastown was Danny McDonald with both goals.
