On Cup Final Saturday which started off wet and very windy, Trim Celtic 14P and 15P kicked off proceeding in the Mdl. Both teams kicked off at 10am. Adrian Geraghty’s 14P side where playing Parkvilla,the Premier league Winners. With a very strong wind at their backs Parkvilla took advantage of the elements and raced into a 2-0 lead before half time. Celtic pressed in the second half without any joy and this allowed Parkvilla to run out 3-0 winner’s. On Pitch 1 John Sweeneys 15P side where faced with an equally tough challenge playing the much fancied Kells/Blackwater. This was a very even game in which it appeared that the team who scored first would run out winners. Despite a impressive performance in goal by the Trim Keeper, Kells/Blackwater picked up the U14 Cup with a 2-0 victory.
Next up for Trim was the 12P team who have already won their league and will also appear in the Shield Final next Thursday in Claremont Stadium. This game in which they ran out winners with a 7-0 scoreline against Kentstown is the second part of the treble.
Finally we had our U11 team managed by Terry Costello..this was a huge achievement for a team who have spent most of the season playing in St Pats on Astro to reach a Final on grass..The standard of play from both teams on the day gives great hope for the future of soccer in the league..unfortunaley Trim came up against a very strong Athboy side and despite a never say die attitude finished on the wrong end of a 4-1 scoreline
While today’s results may in most of the games gone against us, it cannot be said that any side was outplayed us and on any other day the final score’s could have been different..
To all the team’s who made the final’s ..well done..to those that won..another well done and to the team’s that where unsuccessful use the experience to make yourself and your team a better player and team..
“If you can react the same way to winning and losing, that’s a big accomplishment. That quality is important because it stays with you the rest of your life, and there’s going to be a life after soccer that’s a lot longer than your soccer life”
