Celtic teams recorded four wins of of four games played today in the first full Saturday of fixtures since last year. After so many postponements because of the weather in recent weeks it was great to see the boys back in action.

Michael Loughlin’s U16s travelled to Agher and came home with the points after a 4-1 win. On target were Stephen Moroarty (2), Darragh Kennedy & Donal Loughlin. This was a most satisfying result considering that the team last lined out in November!

The scheduled U14 game away in Agher did not take place because the appointed referee failed to turn up. The Club is trying to establish where responsibility lies. This was the second time in recent weeks that  a Club team travalled in vain to an away fixture. Last week the U15s travelled to Albion Rovers only to find that the game had been postponed.

The U13s travelled to Albion Rovers today and won 3-0 thanks to goals from Joan Lehmann (2) and Gavin Mullen. This win keeps Nick Nally’s boys on target for retaining their NECSL Div 1 League title.

The U12s defeated Kingscourt 2-0 at Tully Park to claim three more valuable NECSL Div 1 League points. The scorers (pictured below) were Malachy Joe Gavin and Ciaran O’Rourke. Manager Ron Metcalfe will be hoping for more displays like this in the weeks to come.


John Sweeney & Mark Farrell watched their U11s defeat Athboy 5-0 at Tully Park – a result that means that they need only one more point to wrap up the NECSL Div 1 League. The marksmen were Stephen Moroney (pen), Kevin Nally (2), Shane Moore & Neil Sweeney.
