Trim Celtic kept up their 100% start to the league season with a hard fought win against local rivals Trim Town.
Chances were few and far between in a game where both defences excelled. Town started brighter wuith the wind in the fist half and keeper Barry O’Callaghan saved well from a long range free kick. At the other end Paul Campbell volleyed wide from the edge of the box, while David Fagan had a good shot deflected out for a corner.
In the second half Celtic began to impose themselves more with the wind but were still well marshalled by the town defence. The wining goal was scored by David Fagan when he finished from close range after David Conway’s header came back off a post. Town had late half-chances to equalise and David Fagan had a chance to seal the win for Celtic, however none were taken and Celtic defended well enough to take victory Best for Trim Celtic were Shane Ashe, Dermot Bartley and David Fagan
