4th division result: Mooncoin Celtic 3 Crusaders 0

A convincing win for the lads with Lee Kelly notching his first ever brace at the grand old age of 43 years and substitute Mick Dwyer getting the goal of the game to stake a claim for a starting spot on Wednesday evening.

First one down, defeat Red Star Wednesday evening and they face Kilmacow in a play off providing Kilmacow also win their last game.

Well done and best of luck on Wednesday.

U12 result: Stradbally 1 Mooncoin Celtic 0

After a disappointing result last week this team were raring to go. A well fought battle in first half seen very little chances created. A 25yard Stradbally strike caught Jake Moore off his goal to put them 1-0 up at half time. But the never die attitude of this group seen us control the majority of the second half and captain of the day Patrick Dermody came close with a header going just over the bar.

u12 debutant Anil had the Stradbally full back run riot with his quick speed and skill only for the ref to keep giving free kick out every time he attacked the corner.

Another debutant Ben O’Hanlon was impressive with his close control and skill on the ball and could be what this team has been missing all season. Ben had 2 efforts come close. Well done to all involved keep battling and that win will come soon.

Man of Match was Liam Joy, who came on at half time and strengthened up the defence making some great last ditch clearances and hard but fair tackles.

U14 Mooncoin Celtic 2 Ferrybank B 2

League hopefuls Ferrybank came to Ashgrove today with 3 points on their minds & went 2 up after 20 minutes, despite Mooncoin having a hat of chances early on, it looked like one of those days, but credit to the lads they kept believing that more chances would come & they did, Kieran Fagan was a thorn in Ferrybanks side from the start and made no mistake when when his chances came, 2 goals from Kieran put us back in the driving seat, the last 10 minutes was heart stopping at times, as both teams went for it. Brilliant never say die from the lads today and great performance. Man of the match Kieran followed closely by Adrian, Alan, Luke & Robbie

2nd Division Cup Result Mooncoin 1 Tramore 0

The league winners had their first game in the cup last night against the very good tramore side who finished only 2 points behind them in the league and were the only team to take points off the lads all season , so we knew it was going to be a tough game .

Wayne changed up the formation with a diamond 4 in midfield to crowd the middle , and it worked very well . The first half was very tight and evenly matched with brilliant strength an good hard tackling on display from both sides .

We limited tramore to mabey 1 or 2 long range efforts which never troubled our goal , we had a couple of half chances ourselves but went in at halftime 0-0.

The second half was much the same both teams really giving Everyting they had , our boys worked unbelievable hard all over the field giving tramore no space or time on the ball from front to back .

On 65 minutes our work paid off , Ian synnott crossed from the right side to Johnny Kavanagh who held the ball well and could have had a penalty when he was taken down but he quickly got himself up and buried it into the left hand corner , that’s 8 goals in 4 games for in form Johnny .
Our hard work continued and with tramore not being able to create anything tempers started to flare a little , with both sides having a couple of bookings . We made some changes as the legs got a little weary . Kieran o Brien replaced robbie walsh , pj McGrath for Kevin Dowley , liam walsh for wayne kelly , Jamie Moore for Ian synnott, eoghan walsh for Daniel synnott . The fresh legs helped us keep up the fierce pressure never giving the opposition time on the ball . Liam walsh hit a tramore man with a crunching tackle (but fairly) shortly after coming on and again things got heated between both sets of players but we didn’t let any of the handbags get to us and got straight back into playing good football again ,when we had it we didn’t panic playing nice passing and moving in all parts of the pitch . And in the end ran out 1-0 winners in one of our best performances of the season to date .
Team – ross o keeffe , Ivan Tobin , chris o Hanlon , Wayne kelly , Jason Sauvage , Ethan Ryan , robbie walsh , Daniel synnott , kevin Dowley , Ian synnott , johnny Kavanagh .
Subs used – K.o.brien , Pj McGrath , L.walsh , j.moore, E.walsh.

It’s a credit to all the players after a tough league winning season to put in such a brilliant performance against a very good tramore side . After the game the junior league presented captain Daniel synnott and the squad with the 2b league winning shield and medals in scenes of great joy in ashgrove . Well done to all involved , next up in the cup is villa 2a fixture and time not scheduled as of yet , but if the boys keep turning in performances like this a league and cup double could really be a possibility . Well done boys , HON THE COIN ☘️☘️☘️
