The U-15 FAI North-East Regional squad took on the Qatar national team in Bellurgan, Co. Louth on Tuesday evening of this week & came away with a very impressive 2-1 victory. Six Trim Celtic players were on duty, was over a third of the squad. The players were Gavin Mullen, Joey Corrigan, Mark Leavy, Lee Dixon, Karl Reilly & Robert Sweeney. All six players played a big part in the victory & Mark Leavy scored the North-East’s first goal of the game after he received a pass from fellow Trim Celtic teammate Gavin Mullen, his wicked cross evaded everybody to find the back of the net.
The left side combination of Dixon & Leavy were extremely impressive & Corrigan, who replaced Leavy continued the good work. Mullen, who played just off the front man was excellent in possession & was unlucky to pick up a leg injury in the second half. Robert Sweeney worked tirelessly throughout & showed why he is the current U-14 Club player of the year. He was unfortunate to pick up a second half injury. Karl Reilly appeared as a second half substitute, completing the Trim Celtic representation & he performed admirably. This was a fantastic honour for all the players & their families. Well done to all involved.
