Oscar Traynor Win for MDL
Despite the loss of the Rock Celtic contingent of players, the Meath & District League recorded an impressive victory when they saw off the challenge of the Leinster Senior League at Oriel Park last Friday night in the second round of this year’s competition.
The MDL previously lost 1-3 to the Athletic Union League before Christmas.
This was an excellent all round performance by the locals who shot out of the blocks to take a 3-0 lead in the first period thanks to goals by Mark Quinn (Square Utd), Alan Larkin (Glenmuir) & Anto Reilly (Glenmuir).
The Leinster League responded well after the break & pulled back a gaol from the spot only for Mark McGeogh to restore the two goals advantage for the MDL to score the best goal of the night. Square Utd, keeper Dwane Crosby enjoyed an outstanding game.
Celtic had two representatives playing on the night – Colm Harte turned out another polished but energetic display & Paul Campbell came on for Anto Reilly in the second half. Congratulations to both of them.
Well done to Manager Alan Clarke & all of his squad.
The final group game which will decide the outcome of the group will see the MDL take on the Amateur League. A date has not yet been set.
