Cloughbawn are the Wexford and District Schoolboys Soccer Under-12 Division 2A winners after travelling to second-placed Bunclody last Tuesday and picking up the win they needed.

The champions have had a super season, sauntering away from the pack with eleven wins from their twelve matches to date, and they take the crown with two games to spare.

St. Cormac's collected the Under-14 Division 2A trophy at the weekend after beating Gorey Rangers 'B' 3-0. The Boolavogue boys have been in great form all year, losing just one of their eleven games to date on their way to the crown.

Enniscorthy Town edged out Shelburne to take the Division 3 title by just a point. They won eight of their ten games including a crucial final day of the season 3-2 success against Kilmore to snatch the trophy by the skin of their teeth.

A smashing 8-1 win against Moyne Rangers propelled Gorey Celtic to the Under-13 Division 1A title last Wednesday. The Umbro Park boys have had a memorable season, taking the medals with one game to spare after winning seven of their nine games to date.

It doesn't get any better than perfect and that's exactly what Blackwater have been on their way to winning Under-11 Division 2. The champs beat Courtown on Thursday evening, their twelfth win of the season, and with two games left they have the trophy in the cabinet.

Losing just once this season were Fastnet in Under-11 Division 2A. That superb record, over the 13 games played so far, is enough to give them the winners' medals ahead of Caim United, who themselves lost just once but were held to three draws.

Oylegate are within a point of taking the Division 3 title after smashing eight past Newpark last week, and only Forth Celtic 'B' have any chance of denying them. There's better news for Celtic's first team after they progressed to the cup final after beating New Ross Town.

The double is still in the sights of the Murrintown boys as they sit joint-top of Division 1 with St. Joseph's with a game in hand. The New Ross clubs, Town and Celtic, are still battling it out for the Division 1A title with games remaining after both won last week. Meanwhile, Town's second string are in a battle with Curracloe 'B' that is set to go to the wire in Division 3A.

Gorey Celtic are a point away from taking the Under-12 Division 1A crown following a win over New Ross Celtic on Saturday. They will take the trophy with a draw or better away to Moyne tomorrow (Wednesday). Fethard are still on top of the Division 2 table but Shamrock Rovers are breathing down their necks after another win at the weekend.

Oylegate are still in pole position in Division 3 after taking another three points at the weekend. Kilmore continue to sit on their heels but the seasiders can not afford any more slip-ups.

Gorey Rangers edged ahead of North End in Under-13 Division 1 with a win over St. Cormac's in the week but it's still all to play for with two games left. Bree sit seven points behind Rosslare Strand in Division 2A but know if they win their final three games they will be champions.

After beating New Ross Celtic at the weekend, Campile will win the Under-14 Division 1A title if they avoid defeat at home to Corach Ramblers tonight (Tuesday). At the same time, Bridge Rovers will be aiming to take the Division 2 title with a victory down the road in Duncannon.

In Under-15, Division 2 is the only title not yet determined. St. Cormac's are in pole position to take the crown and will do so if they win next time out.

In Under-16 Division 1, North End could wrap up the title this week if results go their way, while in Division 3 Bridge Rovers closed in on the trophy when picking up three points against Kilmore.
