The weather claimed one of today’s schoolboys’ games – the U16 League game away in Ballyjamesduff and the U15 SFAI Cup match against Maynooth Town or Sy. Columbans was postponed because of the ongoing protest. Latest information suggests that it should go ahead next weekend.

The U11s travelled to Drogheda to take on Drogheda Town 11s in the SFAI Cup and came away at the wrong end of a 0-4 beating. The scoreline certainly does not reflect the pattern of the game with Celtic scorning numerous clear chances -enough in win the game. The squad is pictured below in their new tracksuits sponsored by Hunky Dorys courtesy of Robert Maguire. The Club would like to express its appreciation on behalf of all of the boys and officials for this most generous gesture. Click here for more pictures of today’s U11 game.


The U14s defeated Johnstown 3-1 in their NECSL Div 2 game (scorers not know yet) and the U13s enjoyed a handsome 7-0 win over visitors Albion Rovers in their Div 1 match. On target were Robert Sweeney with a hat-trick, Joan Lehmann, Joey Corrigan, Rian Wogan & James Toher.

The U12s travelled to Athboy and lost 1-4 despite a bright opening period, in their Div 1 League game. Malachy Joe Gavin was on target.
