United, whose form had picked up recently and reached a high in ...

Monaghan Utd 0 Shamrock Rovers 0 TONY GIBSON reports from Gortakeegan THOU SHALT NOT PASS! – That was the philosophy embraced by Monaghan United’s for their meeting with champions Shamrock Rovers at Gortakeegan on Monday evening and, thanks to some Dunkirk spirit in the back ranks and a moment or two of inspiration from keeper Chris Bennion – as well as the beneficence of the goalframe on one or two occasions – the approach proved an inspirational one as the Premier Division strugglers held their exalted visitors to a scoreless draw. The result ...

MONS OLD BOYS TO THE FORE IN NARROW DROGHEDA VICTORY

Monaghan Utd 0 Drogheda Utd 1 IT MAY HAVE been a Good Friday elsewhere but it didn’t feel like one at Gortakeegan when Mick Cooke returned with his Drogheda United side, who looked a lot like last year’s Monaghan United team, took all three points in a one nil victory over the Mons. A Declan O’Brien lone goal was the difference between the sides after 43 minutes and despite Monaghan United getting gifted a numerical advantage, the scoreline stayed that way. The first clear cut chance of the game came from ex-Monaghan United player ...

Monaghan Utd 2 Fanad United 1 When you want a job done, send one of your own to do it – that could have been the motto at Gortakeegan on Monday night when the second and decisive of two injury time goals that turned this EA Sports Cup fixture dramatically in Monaghan United’s favour was nabbed by Rod Collins, son of United boss Roddy. Trailing to Eunan Kelly’s well-struck first half effort, United, fielding an experimental side, looked set for an embarrassing early exit from the competition in which they ...

MONAGHAN UTD RAIN ON ST PATRICK’S PARADE

St Patrick’s Athletic 1 Monaghan Utd 1 PETER HUGHES REPORTS An outstanding display by penalty save hero Chris Bennion supplied the foundations for Monaghan United denting St Patrick’s Athletic’s hitherto 100% start to their Premier Division campaign in an incident-filled encounter at Richmond Park last Friday night. Goalkeeper Bennion broke the hearts of his former club by executing an agile stop of Stephen O’Flynn’s second half spot-kick – and then rubbed salt into the wounds by reacting superbly to keep out Chris Forrester’s follow-up attempt. The United custodian chalked up a string of outstanding ...

CHAMPIONS RECOVER AFTER MCDONAGH GOAL

Shamrock Rovers 3 Monaghan Utd 1 PETER HUGHES REPORTS The class of champions ultimately reasserted itself at the Tallaght Stadium on Friday night when Shamrock Rovers recovered from a stunning third minute concession to newly promoted Monaghan United to run out ultimately convincing winners on a 3-1 scoreline. In the end no old ghosts were laid to rest on Mons’ boss Roddy Collins’ return to what were ultimately unhappy hunting grounds in his previous managerial life. Yet for almost an hour his combative side, thanks to some tigerish midfield resistance and some ...
