4th Division Result Dungarvan Utd 1 Mooncoin Celtic 1

A Friday evening trip on a damp evening against league leaders Dungarvan was the last thing our older lads needed but they dug deep and got a deserved draw against a slick Dungarvan side. An early set back with Shane Twomey picking up a knee injury didn’t unsettle the lads as a youthful Thomas Bubbles O’Brien came on and slotted straight in. Andrew Norris and Andrew McCarthy were matching Dungarvan’s danger men in midfield throughout the first half and we went in 0-0 at half time. An early penalty for Dungarvan in the second half would have been game over on another day but the lads kept grinding away, showing excellent resilience and attitude throughout the team and yours truly Neville ‘goal a game’ Synnott popped up with a late equalizer to grab a deserved point. Solid performance by the entire squad, with the two Andrew’s particularly strong in midfield and also a special mention for Thomas Bubbles O’Brien in what was his first run out since 2004.
