4th Division Result: Mooncoin Celtic 1 Johnville 0

A rip roaring game in damp conditions in Ashgrove this evening saw a fully deserved 3 points secured and a good start for Scoby’s crew.
There wasn’t going to be much in it and it was a bullet header from Neville Synnott which was decisive. Ian Synnott and Tommy Nolan ran the Johnville defence ragged and we’re given great support from Lee Kelly and the evergreen Gerry Walsh in midfield. This game was won in defence though with the back 4 outstanding, Daragh Beagan was full value for his clean sheet with Johnny McGrath and Johnny Power excellent but a towering performance from man of the match Mick Thompson kept Johnville at bay throughout. Great squad performance and plenty to look forward to for the season.
