Trim celtic started brightly and took the lead after ten minutes with a great individual goal from the impressive Derek Donohoe. Albion got themselves back into the game five minutes later with an equaliser following a scramble in the celtic six yard box. Donohoe got his and celtics second shortly after finishing well from a celtic corner. Celtic lost Patrick Conway through injury shortly before half time but thankfully with a strong bench available Paul Campbell was able to fill in comfortabily. Five minutes before half time Donohoe found himself in space on the edge of the box, unleashed a powerful shot which the keeper couldn’t handle to complete a first half hat-trick.
Celtic continued their dominance in the second half with Keith Peppard adding two very well finished goals to leave celtic 5 -1 up with half an hour to play. Albion pulled back a consolation goal with five minutes to go from a free kick. Celtic could have added more goals with chances falling to Mark McCormack and Danny Quinn. Best for Trim on the day were Derek Donohoe, Michael Corrigan, Dominic Martin but all in all this was an impressive team proformance in which Trim dominated all areas of the pitch. Albion, who were forced to field a very young side because of 5 first team regulars being unavailable, will not have enjoyed there trip home.
