North End are the Wexford and District Schoolboys Soccer Under-16 Division 1 champions after beating Gorey Rangers last Thursday. That result, coupled with Moyne's draw with Duncannon, means the Belvedere boys have wrapped up their sixth title in a row with three games still to play.
Gorey Celtic beat Moyne Rangers 5-0 in Under-12 Division 1A to take the trophy ahead of Glynn Barntown. The Umbro Park side just needed to avoid defeat to take the honours but did it in style by ending the season unbeaten from their twelve games with ten wins and just two draws.
Campile United are the Under-14 Division 1A champions after a solid performance against Corach Ramblers saw them win 2-0 to take the crown. The table-toppers have picked up 21 points from their ten games on their way to glory and can no longer be caught by Bree and Wexford Albion who are battling for second spot.
Bridge Rovers smashed in eight goals on their way to victory over Duncannon. The win gave the Bogside boys the Under-14 Division 2 title ahead of neighbours Ballymurn Celtic, having won eight of their ten games and only lost twice.
St. Cormac's are the Under-15 Division 2 champions after going to Campile on Saturday morning and coming away with a classy victory. The win was the tenth in eleven games for the Boolavogue boys and they are now unmatchable with one game still to play.
Oylegate became the Under-11 Division 3 winners at the weekend. They beat Forth Celtic 'B' 5-2 at home to clinch the crown with a game still to play. With twelve wins and a draw so far, they have had a sensational season. Celtic will still be looking to take second ahead of Camolin.
After Forth Celtic beat St. Joseph's for the Under-11 Cup at the weekend, Division 1 of the league is set to go to the decider in the next couple of weeks between the pair. Division 1A looks set to be a straight battle between the New Ross clubs, Celtic and Town, with several games still remaining.
Curracloe 'B' secured a big win away to Forth Celtic 'C' at the weekend and they are now just one victory away from forcing a play-off in Division 3A. They had that opportunity against Adamstown 'B' last night (Monday) to join New Ross Town 'B' at the summit.
The battle rages on for Under-12 Division 2 with Fethard and Shamrock Rovers locked in a scrap for the title. With four points between the sides, last night's (Monday) clash between the teams could go a long way to deciding the destination of the silverware come season's end.
Also last night, Kilmore had the opportunity to leapfrog Oylegate in Division 3 and move top of the table with one game each left to play. They are the only two left in contention and the fight for the win is set to go to the final game when they meet on Thursday.
In Under-13 Division 1, the winner will be decided tonight (Tuesday) when North End United meet Gorey Rangers. However, a play-off is required in Division 2A after Corach Ramblers joined Rosslare Strand at the summit with a win over Bree United.
Gorey Rangers beat North End 3-0 on Friday evening to take the initiative in Under-14 Division 1. However, the sides meet again on May 25 in a tie that is likely to decide whether Rangers win the title or if a play-off is required.
Finally, Under-16 Division 3 is also going to the wire. Bridge Rovers lead Gorey Celtic by two points but the second-placed club has completed its fixtures. However, Camolin have one game left against the table-toppers and they can force a play-off with a win.
