Letterkenny Rovers Donegal League 2022/23 side
Week 47 2022

Rovers 4 - 0 Gweedore Celtic

Sunday 27th November 2022, 1pm

Ulster Junior Cup victory for our Donegal League side today defeating Gweedore Celtic 4-0.

Goals from Conor O' Donnell, Gareth Temple, Jordan Nugent and Guillermo Perez Lopez.

 

Letterkenny Rovers advanced to the Ulster Junior Cup quarter finals with an excellent 4-0 win over Gweedore Celtic on the Leckview Astro on Sunday afternoon.

Both sides play in Sunday League One and it promised to be an interesting encounter pre-match and there was very little in it in the opening ten minutes with Conor O'Donnell going close for Rovers with Ciaran McHugh and Niall Doran going close for Gweedore.

 

Rovers though scored the all important opener on 12 minutes when the impressive Patrick Gahir set up O'Donnell and he made no mistake firing low to the bottom corner.

Doran then forced home goalkeeper Blake Forkan into a good save on 31 before Rovers doubled the advantage on 37 minutes when Gareth Temple headed home Luke Parkes corner.

 

Rovers almost extended their lead straight after halftime but Jordan Nugent saw his well struck effort well stopped by Michael McKelvey in the visitors goal but Nugent wasn't to be denied on 52 when finishing neatly to the bottom corner.

Danny Hall then forced McKelvey into a top notch save as the game meandered to an inevitable conclusion and gloss was put on the scoreline when sub Guillermo Perez Lopez netted on 86 minutes to wrap up a very deserving win for the home side.

Rovers 1 - 6 Swilly Rovers

Sunday 6th November 2022, 1pm

A strong display from Swilly Rovers saw them defeat Letterkenny Rovers 6-1 at the Aura Centre on Sunday afternoon.

 

The early exchanges were quite frenetic with both sides trying to set down a marker with some full blooded challenges testing the patience of match referee Marty McGarrigle with both sides keenly contesting every decision.

 

It was the home side who came closest early doors when Conor O' Donnell headed over but it was O' Donnell who put Letterkenny ahead on 13 minutes when his deflected effort found its way home.

 

Swilly though regrouped and were level in 25 when Shane McNamee fired home from an acute angle against his former club.

 

Indeed McNamee was the standout player and he turned provider on 36 with a neat pass inside the area to find Ian Ward who had the simple task of firing past Blake Forkan.

 

The second half was a pretty even affair with both sides having strong penalty claims waved away before two goals in the space of two minutes sealed the win for Swilly.

 

Ryan McDaid headed home on 69 minutes before Kyle Black on 71 minutes made it 4-1.

 

Ciaran Kelly then headed home on 78 minutes before Oisin Coyle added some extra spice when netting the final goal in added time.
