Under 11’s reach Danone Nations Cup Decider

Trim Celtic U-11s advanced to the All-Ireland stages of the Danone Nations Cup after deservedly beating the strongest teams from the North Dublin, Dundalk and Drogheda Schoolboys Leagues.
In a ‘round robin’ competition between Trim Celtic (representing the NECSL), Raheny Utd., Glenmuir Utd. and Albion Rovers, Trim played the best football of the day and had won the competition after winning their first two games.

In the first game against Glenmuir Utd., Trim went ahead with a very well taken goal by Sean Fitzgerald after being set up by Ciarán Fitzsimons. Trim continued to play the ball around and added to their lead in the second half after a great move down right resulted in a cross across goal where Fionn Nally was there to slot home.

In the second game against Raheny Utd, the game was tight and was tied 0-0 at half time. In the 2nd half Trim again dominated and after five minutes, Sam Millen was put through on goal and beat three defenders for a superb individual goal that turned half time. After the other teams had drawn, it meant that Trim on 6 points could not be caught.

In the final game against Albion Rovers, Trim fielded a number of substitutes and took some time to adjust to the game. Trim were beaten by Albion but at that stage it was immaterial. Trim will be representing the North Eastern region of the country in the all-Ireland stages to be played on 25th June.

The Committee congratulate Manager Nick Nally, Assistant Manager Des Fitzgerald and the boys on this great achievement and acknowledge the role of Club Coach Mark Scanlon who has provided top class coaching for the squad in preparation for the tournament.

Squad: Ciarán Fitzsimons, Paul Melia, Ciarán Halpin, Sean Fitzgerald, James Mitchell, Joan Lehmann, Darren O’Neill, Gareth White, James Toher, Evan Dixon, Sam Millen, Fionn Nally (Capt), Sean McGee, Joey Corrigan and Shane O’Connor.
