Match Report

On a wet winter like morning in Tully Park the Trim Celtic Gunners and Parkceltic Summerhill played out an exciting and enthralling draw despite the conditions. As usual the Gunners did it the hard way, conceding an o.g after only 2 minutes of play. In what was probably one of their poorer performances 1st half performances of the season Park Celtic would have been out of sight by half time but for a series of fine saves by James Bourke? In a half where they created few opportunities the best fell to David Boyle who's shot flew past the left hand post.
The home side improved after the break and were rewarded in the 42nd minute when a fine through ball by substitute Daniel McCormack was latched on to by Ciaran Caulfield who finished with his usual aplomb to the net. The same player almost put the Gunners in to the lead in the 51st minute with a good shot, however 2 minutes later Parkceltic were deservedly back in front, having missed a few good opportunities prior to this. The Gunners pushed hard for a 2nd equaliser from this point on and thought that they had their reward in the 59th minute when Josh Harris pounced on a rebound off the keeper, from a fine shot by Donal McGale, only for the net minder to recover to block his effort. At this stage the supporters thought the game was up for the Gunners but to their credit they showed their never say die attitude and with practically the last kick of the game they produced an equaliser. Josh Harris received the ball near the corner of the Parkceltic box and despite ending up close to the end line he fired an unstoppable shot into the roof of the Summerhill net. Best for the Trim Celtic Gunners were James Bourke in goals, Cealain Geraghty who superbly marshalled the defence, Ciaran Caulfield & Josh Harris who both capped brilliant performances with their goals.
Trim Celtic Gunners: James Bourke, Josh Harris, Finn O'Connor, Ciaran Caulfield, Donal McGale, Aaron McCormack, David Boyle, Cealain Geraghty, Oisin Cumiskey, Dylan Smith, Jack Fagan
