The season ended in disappointment for the Club Firsts this evening when they lost 3-1 to Carrick Rovers in the final of the Kilmessan Shield played in Bellurgan, Co. Louth. Despite taking the lead thanks to a superb volley by Noel Payne in the first half Celtic were unable to finish the season on a high. The game turned in favour of the Co. Monaghan side when the referee incorrectly awarded Paul Campbell a second ‘yellow’ which saw him dismissed to the clubhouse.
