After the disappointment of losing the NECSL Challenge Cup final to MV Bhoys last Saturday at the MDL Grounds, Gerry Harte’s U11A’s needed little motivation this evening when the two sides met again in the last league match of the season at Tully Park & in some style they romped home by a score of 4-1 to land the league title before an enthusiastic crown of supporters.
This was an entertaining game from the start & after settling Celtic took a 3-0 first half lead thanks to a fine hat-trick by James Cullen. The visitors pulled a goal back just before the break but Celtic restored their three goal lead courtesy James Cullen again & even the heavy rainfall did not hamper the celebrations as the final whistle was sounded by referee Tom Flynn.
NECSL official Niall Byrne presented the trophy to Celtic captain Kyle Dixon.
Congratulations to Gerry Harte & Peter Madden upon steering their side to league honours. Congratulations to all of the players also.
The two sides meet again next Saturday in the final of the Premier Shield.
