17/11/07 U13 SFAI Troy Cup
Result: Trim Celtic 1-1 Mullingar Athletic AET (3-5 pens)
Halftime: Trim Celtic 1-1 Mullingar Athletic
Scorer for Trim: Aaron Winters
Trim U13As lost their first game of the season going down 5-3 on penalties after extra time in this SFAI Cup tie. Despite a fine overall performance they just could not get the second all important goal to win the tie. After conceding a goal within the first five minutes, Trim fought their way back into this game & then started to get on top playing some great football. It was not long before they got on level terms with a great corner from Eric Hyland which was pounced upon by Aaron Winters who hammered it into the net. Trim raised their game to an even higher level & started to push Mullingar back into their own half. The forwards & wingers were starting to cause havoc with every attack. The second half kicked off & Trim carried on where they had left off in the first half, controlling the game against a very good Mullingar team. Again & again they created chances but without a ‘killer’ finish. Both sides went into extra time having given everything but with both defences having outstanding games. It was then on to a penalty shoot-out which they lost 3-5. A great all round effort.
Trim Celtic (squad): P. Lynch, E. Hyland, B. FitzGerald, S. Downes, C. Stowe, A. Winters, J. Metcalfe, C. Henebery, J. Reilly, J. Johnston, C. O’Rourke, S. Dalton, J. Shanley, G. White, D. Buckley.

Result: Johnstown 0-4 Trim Celtic
Halftime: Johnstown 0-2 Trim Celtic
Scorers for Trim: Colin Stowe (2), Jack Reilly, Aaron Winters
Trim continued their impressive unbeaten start to the season, with this comfortable 4-0 win against Johnstown in Navan. The first goal came after only three minutes from a free kick; the ball was crossed in by Colin Stowe, Aaron Winters headed it forward to Jack Reilly who headed in at the back post. The next goal came from Colin Stowe who picked up the ball outside the 6 yard box & drilled the ball into the corner of the net. Jack Johnston scored another goal for Trim before half time, but it was harshly judged off side. The second half started the same as the first finished with Trim controlling the game & it was not long before the third went in. Again it was Colin Stowe who picked the ball up outside of the opposition box & curled it over the keeper for another outstanding goal. Trim’s defence were in no mood for conceding a goal & never gave Johnstown any opportunity to score. With Aaron Winters controlling the midfield it was not long before Trim got their fourth goal. This time it came from a corner from Jordan Metcalfe & it was Aaron Winters who leapt at the back post & powerfully headed the ball into the top corner. Conor Henebery was causing Johnstown no-end of problems & was unlucky to see his shot smash off the post, after a fantastic individual run down the wing. It was another impressive performance from Trim.

Halftime: Trim Celtic 2-1 Kells Boys
Scorers for Trim: Jack Reilly (2), Gareth White
Trim continued their unbeaten start to the season with a hard fought win against a good Kells team. Trim took the lead in this game with a well taken goal by Jack Reilly. They continued to make all the play & were unlucky not to go two up when Colin Stowe, from outside the box, hit a free kick which struck the bottom of the post. With ten minutes to go in the first half, Kells were back on level terms when Trim’s defence got into a mix up & the ball fell to a Kells player who tapped it in from close range. It was not long before Trim went back into the lead with another great individual effort from Jack Reilly. In the second half Kells started to take control of the game & were the team who where playing all the football. Against the run of play, Trim added to their lead with a great header from Gareth White from a corner. Kells continued to push to get back into the game & with 3 minutes go, they got a goal back. Trim fell below the higher standards they had set themselves this season but still took all three points.

Halftime: Parkvilla 1-1 Trim Celtic A
Scorers for Trim: Gareth White, Patrick Lennon, Colin Stowe
Trim 13As continued their unbeaten start to the season with a hard fought win against a very good Parkvilla team. It was Parkvilla who took the lead in this game with Trim getting off to a slow start. Trim responded very well to being a goal down & it was not long before Trim were back with a fantastic through ball from Jack Reilly into the path of Gareth White who coolly slotted the ball home. The first half continued to be a well fought game. The second half started the same way as the first ended with both teams giving it everything. It was turning into a fantastic game of football and Trim with 20 minutes to go started to get a stranglehold on the game. It was not long before Trim got the break-through with a great individual effort from Patrick Lennon, who came in from the wing & from a tight angle slid the ball home. Trim continued to dominate the play & scored shortly after again. This time it was another thunderbolt from Colin Stowe from outside the box. It flew into the top corner of the net. Trim were unlucky not to go further ahead with Conor Henebery hitting the post twice. Credit was due to Parkvilla who continued to make it a great contest but the Trim defence were once again playing great defensive football. As always the team gave everything but special mention goes to the defence of Paul Lynch, Eric Hyland, Shane Downes, Colin Stowe & David Buckley.

Halftime: Trim Celtic A 3-1 Kingscourt Harps
Scorers for Trim: Ciaran O’Rourke (2), Jack Reilly (2), Aaron Winters
Trim Celtic march on in the league with another impressive win against Kingscourt. The match started with Trim having most of the possession but it wasn’t until the 19th minute when Ciarán O’Rourke came in from the left wing to score from a cross. They maintained the pressure & within 2 minutes, Aaron Winters struck home with an impressive shot. Trim were in control of the game at this stage with the defence dealing very well with every Kingscourt attack. Celtic concentrated on keeping the ball wide with Conor Henebery & Ciaran O’Rourke just too quick for Kingscourt on the wings. O’Rourke got his 2nd goal on the 28th minute & were coasting but then Kingscourt got a goal back against the run of play from a free kick. Paul Lynch gave very solid performance throughout. The second half started well with Jack Reilly taking a lovely goal from a low cross. Eric Hyland came up from defence & hit the crossbar & then Jack Reilly scored his second goal in the 44th minute. Colin Stowe directed play from defence & led by example as captain with some fantastic individual skill. This was a great team performance and well done to all the lads.

Result: Bailieboro 0-2 Trim Celtic
Halftime: Bailieboro 0-1 Trim Celtic
Scorer for Trim: Gareth White (2)
Trim continued their good start to the season with another win, this time against Bailieboro. This was a very one sided game with Trim applying all the pressure throughout. Wastefulness in front of goal and heroics by the Bailieboro goalkeeper kept the scoreline down from start to finish. Trim’s first goal was an absolute scorcher from Gareth White struck from twenty five yards. It nestled into the top corner of the net. The first half finished the way it started with Trim having all the possession and all the chances. The second half was much the same with Trim playing some great football but unable to grab the second goal. On the rare occasion Bailieboro did attack, the Trim defence was strong. With five minutes to go, Celtic finally got the ‘insurance’ goal after some great link play between Ciaran O’Rourke and Jack Reilly who slid the ball across the face of the goal for Gareth White to tap in from two yards. Overall the team played very well and deserved their win.
Trim Celtic: P. Lynch, C. Stowe, D. Buckley, S. Downes, E. Hyland, S. Dalton, A. Winters, C. Henebery, J. Reilly, G. White, C. O’Rourke.

Halftime: Athboy Celtic 0-3 Trim Celtic
Scorers for Trim: Jack Reilly (2), Gareth White.
Celtic’s U13s got off to a great start for the new season with an away win against the team that won the league last year. Trim took the lead after 10 minutes with Conor Henebery receiving the ball down the wing from Aaron Winters. Conor then crossed the ball in for Gareth White to meet it with a diving header at the near post. Trim continued to keep Athboy under pressure with waves of attacks. It was not long before they scored again with great play in the mid field by Aaron Winters. He played the ball to Jack Reilly who kept a cool head and rounded the keeper to slot the ball home. Trim continued to press and it wasn’t long before the third goal arrived thanks to another cool finish by Jack Reilly. Trim did not want the first half to end as they continued to play some outstanding football with Ciaran O’Rourke continually causing the Athboy defence all sorts of problems. The second half belonged to Athboy who pushed forward continually for a goal to get them back into the game. With 15 minutes left they got the break they deserved & scored. Trim’s defence held strong until the last minute when they conceded another goal but it was too late for Athboy with the final whistle being blown at 3-2. The defensive performance in the second half was fantastic to keep Athboy at bay. A great start to the season thankas to a great team effort.
