U12 result: Mooncoin Celtic 1 Southend 1

A cracking game between 2 evenly matched teams. Eoin O’Callaghan continued his good form with another cracking strike to give Mooncoin the lead midway through the first half and they held firm with the defence led by David O’Shea and Ciara O’Keeffe leading by example. Jake Moore was a busy man in the second half with one world class save keeping Southend out but unfortunately the rebound was scrambled home. Eoin O’Callaghan went close with a couple of free kicks and Anthony Dunphy put in a superb shift up front with a non stop work rate.

A draw being a fair result but the improvement shown by this squad is testament to the hard work put in over the last couple of months by Derek Tebay and the kids themselves with slick passing and a never say die attitude standing to them in every game.

This squad face an away trip to Ferrybank in their next game in 2 weeks. Well done all.
