Summerhill 0 – 3 Trim Celtic
Halftime: 0 – 1
Trim Celtic scorers: Eddie Murray, Alan McCormack, Ronan Flynn
This was a great win for Trim Celtic in the opening game of the season.
Celtic took the lead after twenty minutes when Eddie Murray scored. Trim
played some good football and controlled much of the second half but only
scored their second with fifteen minutes to go when the goalkeeper could
only parry Andy Reilly’s header with Alan McCormack on hand to tap home.
Just before the final whistle a Summerhill defender upended Andy Reilly in
the box conceding a penalty and receiving a red card in the process. The
resulting penalty was converted by Ronan Flynn.
Best for Trim Celtic were Tommy Boyle, Andy Reilly and Ronan Flynn
Trim Celtic: Mick Martin, Paddy Dempsey, Tommy Boyle, David Campbell, John
Kelly, Johnny Connolly, Eddie Murray, Ronan Flynn, Andy Reilly, Gordon
Flood, Adam Englishby
Subs: John Kane (for Paddy Dempsey), Alan McCormack (for Adam Englishby),
