In the absence of Manager Nick Nally who was abroad on holiday, Mark Scanlon and Des Fitzgerald took the Club’s U11 Squad to Dublin this afternoon in search of the National title and with it the right to represent Ireland in the Danone Nations Cup in France in September.

Alas they came home disappointed after a gallant but unsuccessful effort after losing out to the eventual winners Clonmel Town by the narowest of margins -in a penalty shoot out after a scoreless draw. Everyone in Trim Celtic congratulates the boys and their management team on their magnificent achievement in getting to the deciders today. They were the only team to hold Clonmel Town scoreless and on the balance of play they deserved to win the game against the defensive victors.

The Committee sends its best wishes to the boys from Clonmel as they now prepare to take on the rest of Europe.
