The long hard season (twenty eight games) finally caught up on the U11A’s this morning a t the MDL Grounds when they lost 1-2 after extra time in the final of the NECSL Premier Shield. Mark Kame was the scorer in what manager Gerry Harte described as ‘a flat performance all round with too mant players showing signs of fatigue’. This result means that MV Bhoys defeated Celtic in the deciders of both cup & shield this season but Celtic can claim the bragging rights notwithstanding having won the league by defeating their rivales from Co. Cavan last Monday night at Tully Park. Man of the match for Celtic was keeper Darren McGarry.

The team will remain in training however for the next stage of the Danone Cup.
