Leinster Junior Cup
Verona FC 1 – 4 Trim Celtic
Halftime: 0 – 3
Trim Celtic scorers: Craig O’Hanlon, David Conway, Paul Campbell, Noel Payne
Celtic eased into the next round of the Leinster Junior Cup with this win against a very young Verona side. Craig O’ Hanlon raced onto Paul Campbell’s through ball to coolly lob the keeper after fifteen minutes to put Celtic in front. O’Hanlon then rattled a shot off the bar which David Conway headed home from ten yards. Paul Campbell made it 3 – 0 before halftime when his shot squirmed under the keeper’s body after a surging run from the edge of his own box.
In the second half Verona began to up the tempo and scored ten minutes into the half. Barry O’Callaghan had to make a couple of smart saves to keep the Blanchardstown team at bay. Noel Payne struck a fine 25-yard effort to end the scoring.
Best for Trim Celtic were John Bligh, Ciaran Rispin and Paul Campbell.
