Injuries and work commitments meant that Trim travelled to Albion in the hope that some of the reserve team players could make the step up to the Premier level and they did not let the club down. This game will not go down as a classic or as one of Trim Celtic’s greatest victory but the 3 points gained was all important. Trim started the brightest and after only 6 mins Derek Donohoe unleashed one of his trademark shots from just outside the box to give Trim the lead. The next 20 mins all belonged to Albion and if it were not for 3 fantastic stops by Barry O’Callaghan in the Trim goal Albion could have been out of sight. Albion did eventually get a deserved equalizer 10 mins before half time and most people taught that the game would be level at the break. However Dimmy Higgins had different ideas. On 43mins he superbly volleyed home from inside the box and then on 45mins his right footed corner kick flew past everybody and into the net. 3-1 up at half time and Trim then dominated things in the second half. Donohoe was a constant threat and Paul Campbell marshaled the midfield well. Ronan Hayes replaced the injured Damo McGhee and Hayes’s pace and trickery caused all sorts of problems for the Albion defence. Further goals form Scott McGowan and Keith Jones wrapped up the points for Trim Celtic.
