Rosemount Mulvey FC is once again a force to be reckoned with in the Leinster Senior League. The Dundrum based side has only been back in action a year and a half and already they have brought home two trophies. Much like last season the club is looking for silverware in both the league and the cup. The club has enjoyed a fantastic run in the cup competitions this season which has meant their league aspirations have almost taken a back seat.
The LSL Major Saturday 1D side has only managed to play seven league games as a result of their cup exploits. Amazingly they are still in with a shout of being promoted as league champions as they will surpass the league leaders CYM Beechwood should they win their eight games in hand. Rosemount Mulvey will be out for revenge when they play the league leaders as they suffered a 3-1 loss to them on the opening day of the season.
Since that defeat the club has been on an incredible roll as they have taken on all comers in the cup competitions. Victories over Newland and Inchicore set up a quarter final tie in the Tom Carroll cup with St.Vincents Hospital FC. A tense 1-1 draw saw the sides play for a place in the semi-finals in a penalty shootout. Once again luck was on Rosemount’s side as they ran out 4-3 winners in the shootout.
The club has also seen success in the Noel Ryan Cup this season. As has been the norm for the Major Saturday 1D side this season they have seen off competition from leagues well above their own. First they defeated Kilnamanagh, a side that is two leagues above them, 4-2 in an impressive away performance. However, the club’s most impressive giant killing came just this past weekend.
The Dundrum side came up against top tier side Cherry Orchard who are right on the tails of league leaders Bluebell United in the Major Saturday with a game in hand. Despite being five divisions below their opposition Rosemount proved they were more than a match for Cherry Orchard. A Liam Byrne free kick sent the Dundrum side into dreamland as the hosts couldn’t conjure up a goal.
This victory kept Rosemount’s treble dreams alive as they continue to turn out impressive performance after impressive performance. The club’s second team also has silverware in mind this season. The club’s Division 3A Saturday side is currently top of their league with thirty eight points from fifteen league games. They are currently enjoying a run of three wins in a row and have only lost one game all season. The performances of both the club’s teams this season would suggest that the club is definitely in the right hands and that they will soon be marching up the Leinster Senior League.
