Match Report

On a glorious morning in Navan, Trim Celtic continued their fine start to the season with an imperious win over Parkvilla Blue. Both sides came into this match on the back of decent wins last weekend and were full of confidence approaching this fixture. However Celtic imposed their authority on this match from as early as the 4th minute. A superb corner by Ciaran Caulfield was nodded back by Sean Mc Donnell at the far post into the path of David Boyle who volleyed home with aplomb to give the visitors an early lead. From this point on Celtic were in control of the match and some of their passing and movement was excellent. Sean Mc Donnell had a chance 2 minutes later to extend the lead but shot narrowly wide. Joey Cole was also wide with a shot in the 10th minute following a fine run by Sean Mc Donnell. Celtic did extend their lead in the 12th minute when a pass from Ciaran found David Boyle who played James Molloy through who made no mistake in finishing the ball to the bottom left corner for a 2-0 lead. Celtic continued to create chances but the scores remained the same until half time mainly due the the heroics of the Parkvilla keeper.
This trend was to continue when play resumed in the 2nd half and Ciaran Caulfield in particular was frustrated time and time again by the opposition keeper. Conor O’Hare replaced James Molloy up front for the 2nd half and was unlucky a few times when opportunities presented themselves. Blake Gibbons also came on for Sean Tully in the 46th minute and was as tigerish as ever in his endeavours to retrieve the ball from his opponent, special mention must also go to the debut boy, Conor Grey when introduced to central midfield, he stepped up to the mark and was very unlucky with a long range effort from 20 yards that just flew wide of the post. All in all this was an excellent performance all round, David Curran had little to do in goals but made one excellent save, the defence was resolute throughout particularly Wes and Harry in the centre. Both full backs were solid and Ben Kavanagh seems to be settling in well on the left side. Midfield as usual gave us the platform to play and provided many opportunities for the forwards. On another day we could have scored a few more but that is being really picky after a super performance by all the lads.
Squad: David Curran, Sean Tully, James Molloy, Wesley Gibbons, Harry Cottrell, Blake Gibbons, Ciaran Caulfield, Joey Cole, Kris Gorman, David Boyle, Ben Kavanagh, Conor Gray, Conor O'Hare, Sean Mc Donnell
