4th division result: Mooncoin Celtic 1 Park Rangers 0

17 over 35’s in Ashgrove this evening to welcome park rangers for the second game in the plate competition. Same back four as the last day (Don, Chopper, Thompson and McGrath) performed well especially in the second half. New look midfield Gerry Walsh using his experience to the max and Darragh Beagan with micky Comerford enjoying life on the right wing and froggie back from suspension on the left. Neville and goal machine Scoby started up top. The goal came from a set piece we have been working on in training – cross to the back post and Scoby with a great header to continue his hot scoring streak. We created a few more chances but the finishing left a lot to be desired. Plenty got game time with the introduction of Mick Dwyer, Lee Kelly, Mick ‘golden boots’ Foran and Liam Walsh. We held out in the second half to clinch the three points which sets us up nicely for next three games. Too many good performances to pick a man of the match but if you had to, John McGrath by a nose would clinch it. Great stuff from the veterans
