U15c Boys: Mooncoin Celtic register a win out in Faithlegg.

We visited a windy Park Rangers for gameweek 7.

The first quarter was an even affair with both teams finding their feet. We hit the front with a clever finish by Robbie which was the first of a first half hat trick.

Further goals from Canice and a fantastic solo effort from Marti had us 5.0 up at the break. We faced the wind in the second half but the lads kept going and were soon rewarded with a strike from Dani.

Billy soon added a fantastic long range effort which is becoming a regular occurance. Further strikes from Anil and Aidan saw us out comfortable winners with the defence also adding to their clean sheet tally.

Another great squad performance from this bunch which has them all improving week on week.

Goals Robbie x 3. Marti,Dani , Canice, Billy, Anil & Aidan.

Hard to pick anyone out today but special mentions for Robbie, Canice and entire defence.

MoM Marti.

U11b Boys: Kilmacthomas 4 – 0 Mooncoin Celtic

A wet and windy morning saw our u11s travel to Kilmacthomas. Our back line of Padraig, Tadhg and Sean dealt admirably with a relentless Kilmac team early on however we eventually went a goal down after 20 minutes.

Fionn on goal made a couple of terrific saves to keep the scoreline down including one full stretch dive which looked to be heading for the far corner.

The midfield worked tirelessly throughout the half to protect their defence but couldn’t quite make the breakthrough at the other end. The second half saw a flurry of goals by Kilmac early on after a slow start but our boys recovered and were unlucky not to get something from the game against the only unbeaten team in the division.

Improving with every game however and on to DLS at home in a fortnight.

More good funding news

Another bit of good news landed in the post today with Kilkenny County Council granting us €2000 under the Community Activities Fund Grant scheme. This money will be used to further enhance our new grounds with defibrillator, bike racks, signage and field maintenance equipment.

This good news follows on from our recent successful Sports Capital Grant application where we received just under €59000 so not a bad couple of weeks.

None of these grants would have been successful without the support of everyone involved in the supporting of all our fundraising ventures.
