The action today for the Club’s U11A’s took place at the MDL Gounds when they lined out against MV Bhoys in the final of the NECSL Challenge Cup but finished up 2-3 losers after an extra game game.

Eoin O’Connor converted an early penalty to give Celtic the lead only for the Cavan boys to equalise from a corner before the break. The opposition then took the lead in the second half & it took Celtic until two minutes from the end to hit an equaliser to bring the game to extra time. Fionnan Madden was the scorer from a close-in header.

MV Bhoys struck however in the first period of extra time & despite fighting to the end Celtic were unable to find the net again.

First blood therefore to MV Bhoys who deserve congratulations for their sporting win. The same teams meet again on Monday night in Tully Park to decide the outcome of the league & again next Saturday in the final of the Premier Shield.
