In the NECSL U13 Challenge Cup the Club’s 13A team defeated visitors Athboy (B) at Tully Park by a score of 5-0. Jack Reilly hit four goals & Sean Dalton struck one. The score was 2-0 at the break. Other players to impress were Eric Hyland at right full, Conor Henebery on the wing & Aaron Winters in midfield.
John Sweeney took the U12s to Navan to play Johnstown but they dropped two Division 1 points in a 2-2 draw after a very lacklustre performance. Ferghal O’Hare & Jack Byrne were on target in the first half but the Navan boys struck twice to level the scores shortly after the break & neither side was able to find a winner. Neil Sweeney & Cian Downes tried very hard for Celtic. The U12s are now three points ahead of MV Bhoys with two games to play each. The two teams have already played each other twice.
