Ground work will progress soon

Little update for everyone on the Suir Crescent development. Due to the weather the last 2 weeks, work has stopped as the ground is unsuitable to prepare for the drainage work but there is still a huge amount of work done to date. Fingers crossed the weather will be good to us in the coming days and the work will recommence.

Dixie derby

A very interesting game takes place tomorrow evening in Ashgrove when the Dixie derby at u13 level takes place at 6.15. In the green corner is Mick Dixie Conway managing Mooncoin Celtic u13s against a Piltown side in claret and Blue led by Thomas Dixie Conway. Plenty of slagging and jockeying has gone on in the few weeks since the fixtures were released but all of this will be put to one side when the game kicks off. The late Tom Dixie Conway will be smiling to himself upstairs watching this one where 2 sons will try outwit each other and 2 grandsons will be trying to get one over on the other. A must see game for anyone.

Schoolboy team updates

With the season kicking off the last week for our senior side, our schoolboy teams have been busy the last number of weeks preparing for kick off for the new season.

Our u11 squad are back with a number of weeks under the watch of Kevin Kennedy, John Hearne and Pat Walsh. They will play a number of friendlies over the next couple of weeks before they start in mid September.

The u12 and u13 squads under Derek Tebay and Mick Conway respectively are preparing nicely with 2 strong squads assembled. U12s under Derek will play Ballyduff next Wednesday in preparation for next Saturday when they kick off their league campaign away to Kilmacow.

The u13s will kick off Monday evening against Piltown in Ashgrove but travel for a friendly tomorrow to play Peaumount in Dublin with a 1pm kick off. Manager Mick Conway has been busy securing new signings during the summer and is very hopeful that his squad will do well.

Our u14 squad coached by Richard Long and Karl Conway have worked very well in pre season with a number of good performances. Confidence is high as they get ready to kick off next Saturday away to St Paul’s. A big season coming for our underage set up and with our academy returning mid September, we are in for a busy year.

Mooncoin 2B challenge match

Mooncoin 2b challenge match-
An understrength Mooncoin side took to the road today and met a very impressive Ballyduff 1B squad. Ballyduff knocked in two before the half hour with little chances created by Mooncoin. The final 15mins of the half seen more inspiration and we finally got our foothold in the match. The second half was much livelier with mooncoin on top. Some nice build up play which ended with a ball in from Griffin for Synnott to scramled it over the line to match it 2-1. Ballyduff struck a shot from outside the box on the 65 minute mark which regained the two goal advantage. Ballyduff knock two more past Mooncoin in later stages to run out comfortable winners. Next up is Kilmacow on Wednesday. Kick Off 6:45pm.
