The Club Reserves lost for the first time since 2005 in the MDL Reserve Cup when they lost 3-4 to visitors Navan Town last Saturday at Tully Park. In a game that they might have comfortably won, they lost out by the odd goal in seven. Top scorer Michael Tyndall converted early in the first half from an Anthony Craig assist but the visitors then struck twice to lead at the break. In the second half Mark Scanlon set up Craig for an equaliser & then Tyndall conveted a penalty after Paul Munnelly was fouled. However the visitors struck twice to win the game thus ending the Club’s impressive record in the Reserve cup going back more then three years. Matty Scanlon gave a fine peformance throughout.
The only comfort on the day for the Reserves was the news that Glenmuir had been beaten in the Premier Reserve League thus restoring Celtic’s challenge. If they win all five games remaining they will be crowned champions. A big ask but maybe…..
