Once again the Club Schoolboy teams recorded a mixed bag of results in the various League games in the NECSL last weekend.
The most impressive result of the weekend was that 10-1 win recorded by the 11As in their home Division 1 match against visitors Athboy. Peter Gavin (3), James Cullen (2), Anthony Moran (2), Eoin O’Connor, Kylre Dixon & Daniel Lewis were the scorers. Pierre Fox enjoyed a fine game in a fine team peformance all round which left manager Gerry Harte very happy with his day’s work.
Unfortunately the 11Bs losing run continued when they lost 0-2 at home to visitors Johnstown in Division 2. Eamonn McGloughlin, Emma McGloughlin, Neil Reilly & Liam O’Donnell all impressed.
The 12s suffered a rare Division 1 defeat to lose their unbeaten start to the season in Navan, going down 1-3 to an impressive Navan Town side. Stephen Moroney was the scorer. Manager John sweeney will be keen to see his team get back to winning ways next weekend.
Ron Metcalfe’s 13As continued their unbeaten start to the season in Division 1, winning 5-1 at Tully Park against Kingscourt Harps in Divion 1. On target were Ciaran O’Rourke (2), Jack Reilly (2) & Aaron Winters. Colin Stowe commanded midfield through & Eric Hyland also impressed.
The 13Bs also remain unbeaten since the start of the season under the stewardship of Brian Flood. They took on Newtown Utd away in Division 2 & won by the only goal of the game scored by Fergus Mulryan in the dying minutes. Others to shine on the day were Colin Keane & Thomas Crinion.
The 15s won a valuable Division 1 point when they drew 3-3 at home to Parkvilla from Navan thanks to goals by Ryan Keegan, Cian McGrenra & Bob Maguire. The game was scoreless at the break. Maguire was outstanding for Celtic from start to finish.
The 16s also drew to claim a point in their Division 1 game with Torro Utd. Diarmuid Higgins & Darren McGee found the net. Celtic had to come from behind twice. Keeper Michel Lydon impressed in goal.
The 17s played Artane Beaumont in the FAI Cup but lost 2-6 to their Dublin opponents. Rory McEntee & Eunan McGrenra were the scorers.
