The six games played today by Club sides produced only a single win, a draw & four defeats – one of the most disappointing Saturdays suffered by the Club in many years.
The Reserves (pictured) travelled in confidence to Longwood to take on the local reserve team in the Gerry Reilly Cup but came home after a 0-3 trouncing at the hands of a team playing two divisions lower. They will look forward to next week’s outing to get back winning ways after this best forgotten display!

Gerry Harte’s U11A’s were the only one team to record a victory in their top of the table Division 1 clash away to MV Bhoys. Man of the man was James Cullen who hit all four goals for Celtic in a 4-2 win that keeps them well on track for the league title.
Unfortunately the U11B’s lost 0-3 at home to high-flying Agher Park in Division 2 despite what manager Kieron Fletcher described as a very good display.
Ron Metcalfe’s U13’s dropped their first points of their Division 1 campaign when the played out a scoreless draw away to Kells/Blackwater. They will be very keen to get back to winning ways with Athboy chasing hard behind them as the chase for the title enters the home straight.
The U13B’s also dropped their first Division 2 points of the season when an injury time winner gave their title chasing rivals MV Bhoys all three points. After the home side had taken the lead, Alan O’Halloran equalised for Celtic & the game seemed to be heading for a draw when the Co. Cavan side struck to run out undeserving 2-1 winners.
The Club’as last representatives in an SFAI National Cup made a tame exit at the hands of visitors Castlebar Celtic when they lost out heavily by a score of 0-5. The Co. Mayo side were superior in most areas of the pitch & John Marron’s boys despite lots of effort were unable to contain them. The score was 0-1 at the break & when the visitors doubled their advantage in the second half the contest was effectively over. However, huge congratulations are due to the management & players on their achievement of reaching the last 32 of their National competition. Well done.
