Match Report

Going away to play the league leaders on the first day after the break was always going to be difficult. But to do so with only 10 players available made the task even harder. Getting a result proved well beyond Trim on the day. It should be said that Newtown are a very useful team, strong, fast and well drilled they play nice football. Playing against the wind in the first half Trim held Newtown at bay for almost 20 minutes restricting them to speculative shots and efforts from set pieces. However, on 20 minutes Newtown stretched Trim`s defence and punched straight through the middle for the opening goal. Number 2 came 5 minutes later following a good cross from the left and in the minutes immediately before half time Newtown scored twice more. With the wind in the second half Trim hoped they might get more into the game but Newtown scored again 5 minutes into the half. Trim kept battling and did create one or two chances but in truth were struggling without having a full team. Things got worse in this regard when Aidan Scott was forced off with a wrist injury with 20 minutes left. Trim worked their socks off but gaps were bound to appear with only 9 men. Newtown scored twice more before the end for a thoroughly deserved win. Trim battled all the way to the end in an attempt to get on the scoreboard and both Dylan Smith and Donal McGale were close to breaking Trim’s duck. All Trim’s players worked hard against the odds and strange as it seems given the scoreline Jack Fagan, new to goalkeeping duties, was Trim’s best player on the day. He couldn`t be faulted for the goals and pulled off some superb saves. His close range shot stopping was both brave and skillful.
Trim Celtic: Jack Fagan, Sean McPhillips, Sam Lynch, Oisin Gallagher, Aaron O’Connor, Kacper Jagodzinski, Tyreece Tango, Dylan Smith, Donal McGale, Aidan Scott
