Premier Division

Rathkenny Rovers 0 – 1 Trim Celtic

Halftime: 0 – 0

Trim Celtic scorer: David Conway

Premier Division new boys Rathkenny Rovers gave Trim Celtic a real match in
the first game of the season. Despite controlling the game Celtic came up
against a very mean Rathkenny defence and a goalkeeper who was ascertive and
commanding in his box.

Celtic came close without the keeper making a save but often had their own
keeper Barry O’Callagahn to thank for keepeing the game scoreless with some
tidy sweeping.

Throughout the game Celtic were limited to long range shooting as they were
pushed out by the Rathkenny defence. In the end David Conway broke
the deadlock late in the second half with a header from Ciaran Rispin’s deep
cross.

Best for Trim Celtic were: Ciaran Rispin, Dermot Bartley and Barry
O’Callaghan

Barry O’Callaghan, Ciaran Rispin, Damien Dempsey, Dermot Bartley, Dominic
