Match Report

Trim Celtic's 13 Premier side progressed to the semi-final of the Gerry Browne Cup with a comprehensive victory over a spirited Kentstown team in the MDL on Saturday morning. In an uneventful 1st half when Celtic didn’t quite reach the standards of their play in the last few weeks, they were nevertheless in control of proceedings throughout the half. Up until the 16th minute there was very little to write about but this all changed after Kris Gorman had a shot saved by the Kentstown keeper. From the resultant kick out by the keeper, Kris regained the ball and played Josh Harris in, despite the keeper getting a touch to his shot, the ball nestled in the bottom corner to give Celtic a deserved 1-0 lead. Trim were in total control of the ball despite not adding to their lead before half time. Celtic upped the intensity after the break and Josh Harris had another shot just wide 2 minutes into the half. This was followed by a further 2 efforts by Kris Gorman and David Boyle in the 36th & 37th minute. Celtic had to wait until the 46th minute for their 2nd goal, when Ciaran Caulfield’s free kick from the edge of the box on the right hand side curled into the bottom corner of the net despite the keeper's best effort to save it. Celtic were well on top now and looking dangerous with each attack. Their play was rewarded with a 3rd goal in the 49th minute when a Trim corner on the right found Aaron Mc Cormack at the back post and he finished well to the back of the net. A minute later Harry Cottrell went on a great run from the back and was unlucky that his effort on goal was saved by the keeper. Celtic introduced several subs at the stage and there was a welcome return after a 3 month injury for James Molloy, who played out the last 5 minutes. Next up for Celtic is a tough away match to Kells Blackwater– Red next Saturday morning. Best for Trim on the day were Harry Cottrell who gave another commanding performance at centre back, Kris Gorman who is in a rich vein of form in the middle of the park and the men who can’t stop scoring and look a constant threat, Ciaran Caulfield and Josh Harris. Trim Celtic: James Bourke, Josh Harris, Harry Cottrell, Blake Gibbons, Ciaran Caulfield, Joey Cole, Kris Gorman, Aaron McCormack, David Boyle, Sean Tully, Wesley Gibbons Subs: Sean Mulryan (for Bourke), Kian Oliver (for Boyle), Evan Kennedy (for Harris), James Molloy (for Tully)
