A good early start from Trim Celtic saw them race into a 2-0 lead after just 18mins. Both goals came from Derek Donohoe. The first was made by the impressive Dimmy Higgins when he won a 50-50 ball on the left and fed the ball to Scott McGowan who set up Donohoe and he finished well from a tight angle. The second was made by Jason Hand who had a fantastic game and worked hard for the entire 90mins. He fed the overlapping Colm Harte who set up Donohoe to score his second from 5 yards out. Even the early loss just before the break of Dimmy Higgins did not halt Trims momentum and with the Trim goal never troubled this win was probably one of the easiest league wins that Trim will ever be involved in. The second half was all one way traffic but with some goal line clearances and a couple of missed opportunities Trim did not add to their goal tally until the 65th minute when a superb cross by Scott McGowan was met in the box by the head of Alan Douglas who had been introduced for the injured Mick Corrigan. Trim had to reshuffle due to the loss of the 2 players but strength in dept made sure that this game was never going to be lost. Paul Campbell added trims 4th when he raced into the penalty area and cleverly chipped the Albion keeper for the goal for the game. Substitute Douglas was impressive in his first game for a while and with the speed and skill of McGowan and Harte on the wings the 3 points won keeps Trim firmly in the race for Premier honors.
