Match Report

Trim Celtic Gunners went into this match against Parkvilla hoping to build on their performance against the same opposition in their previous match. However all their pre-match planning went out the window when Parkvilla again took the lead after 2 minutes when they scored with an unstoppable shot to the far corner of James Bourke’s net. Parkvilla enjoyed a spell of domination for 10 minutes after this, but the Gunners slowly got themselves back into this game with a much improved display for the reminder of the 1st half.
The Gunners started the 2nd half the better team and in the 35th Ciaran Caulfield hit the post following a short corner between himself and David Boyle. Two minutes later the same player had a fine shot well saved by the Parkvilla keeper, the Gunners were pressing hard for the equaliser at this stage and following a great run by Ciaran Caulfield, his cross went agonisingly across the Parkvilla box when it just needed the slightest touch by the inrushing forwards for the equaliser. Parkvilla had a few chances and would have scored but for some excellent defending and some fine saves by James Bourke who came off his line to great effect a few times. The equaliser was not to come for the Gunners despite a fine shot by David Boyle in the 41st minute and a great run and shot by Ciaran Caulfield in the 48th minute. The Gunners were made to pay for their missed chances when Parkvilla scored their 2nd goal in the 54th minute to close out the match. Best for the Gunners were James Bourke, Cealain Geraghty playing in a new position of centre half, Josh Harris who gave an inspirational performance in the middle of the park with some bone crunching tackles and Ciaran Caulfield who deserved a goal for his efforts.
Trim Celtic Gunners: James Bourke, Josh Harris, Finn O'Connor, Blake Gibbons, Ciaran Caulfield, Donal McGale, Aaron McCormack, David Boyle, Cealain Geraghty, Wesley Gibbons, Dylan Smith
