The Club U13A’s (pictured) were first into the winner’s enclosure this season when a scoreless draw at home to Athboy Celtic last Saturday in Tully Park was enough to win them the NECSL Division 1 title with onw game to spare. With a record of eleven wins & two draws this was a great day for Ron Metcalfe’s boys who installed themselves as favourites immediately the season started last August & have remeined unbeaten since in all competitions except the SFAI Troy Cup. Congratulations to all concerned.
The Club’s other Schoolboy teams have also turned in some fine results ast Saturday & since.
The U14’s defeated Albion Rovers 4-1 in Division 1 to retain alive their slight hopes of retaining the league title. On target were Sam Millen, Mark Little, Fionn Nally & Donal Callan.
The U13B’s hit six without reply against Oldcastle in a double header. The result sees them collect three more Division 2 points & it also counts as a victory in the shield. Anthony Peppard, Colin Keane, Alan O’Halloran, Lee McGorrian & Dean Courtney all scored. Brian Flood’s boys need one point against MV Bhoys in their last game to win the title.
The U12’s also tasted victory in the shield when they overcame the challenge of Carrick Rovers in Carrickmacross by a score of 2-1. Ryan Moore & Conor Burke hit the goals. The game featured fine displays by Adrian Maguire, Shane Moore & Conor Burke. This evening at Tully Park the U12’s defeated visitors Kells/Blackwater in their penultimate league outing. The scorers were Jack Byrne (2), Stephen Moroney (pen) & Conor Burke in a comprehensive 4-0 win. Other players to impress were Ryan Moore, Neil sweeney & Sean Coloe. John Sweeney’s lads need a win in their last league game at home to Parkvilla to become U12 Division 1 champions.
Gerry Harte’s U11A’s travelled to Carrickmacross to take on the local Carrick Rovers in their shield & came home happy after an impressive 3-1 win in very windy conditions. Daniel Lewis, James Cullen & Pierre Fox hit the target. The team were on the field again last night when they entertained Enfield Celtic in Division 1 & once again they emerged victorious this time by a score of 6-0. James Cullen struck twice as did Mark Kane and Daniel Lewis & Peter Gavin got the others. With three games to go, they are three points ahead of MV Bhoys.
Unfortunately the U11B’s lost 0-4 away to Torro Utd. in the shield at the weekend.
The improved form of the U15’s was again to be seen as they beat visitors Manor Farm 3-0 at Tully Park in their shield match. The scorers were Conor Smith with two & Dara Scannell. They lead 2-0 at the break.
Sad to report the U17’s lost at home to Enfield Celtic in the shield on Sunday morning. Scorer not known.
