Some good news landed yesterday just in time for Christmas.
Following a recent grant application to Kilkenny County Council under the CCFCS for Spectator Railing around the pitches, we are delighted to share the news that we have received a grant of €10,000 towards the project which will add another important piece of infrastructure to the grounds. Big thank you to all involved in the application.
Away trip today to the Watershed in Kilkenny to face Freebooters in the 1st round of the SFAI Trophy.
We asked the lads to embrace the tie and deliver a big performance and they certainly produced the best performance in a long time with everyone delivering a hard shift against a quality team with the final score Freebooters 2-1 Mooncoin Celtic, Oisin scoring a well earned peno won by Sean.
Before the game we had a minute silence in honour of Vicky Phelan (Kelly) which we would like to thank Freebooters for agreeing to and joining us in, we also wore black armbands in honour of the Kelly & Phelan Families.
A minutes applause as a mark of respect this afternoon for Vicky Phelan preempted the u13 home match vs Ballyduff.
Mooncoin started quickly and were 1 nil up with a fine finish from Canice. Shortly afterwards a misplaced pass allowed Ballyduff to get a quick shot away for a fine equaliser that gave Bradley no chance.
The game settled down until just before half time when Cathal and Charlie scored deserved goals.
Ballyduff came out strong In the second half and Bradley produced a fab save to deny a certain goal.
With ten minutes to go 3 goals from Robbie, Canice (for his 2nd) and Tommy (lucky block down from a defensive clearance) led to a final score of 6-1.
Great effort from every one of the squad today and rewarding to see some of the training work put into action in the match.
Best of luck for the rest of the season to Ballyduff.
The match began with a minute’s applause to honour Vicky Phelan who sadly passed away this week.
Donncha wore the armband today and led by example with a dominant midfield performance. Mooncoin battled well in the first half without creating any notable chances. We were unlucky late in the half when an attempted clearance went straight into the goal.
Amends were made within a couple of minutes when Eoin’s shot from outside the area burst the back of the Kilmacthomas net, that’s 4 in 4 games for him.
1-1 at half time and fresh legs in the second half saw Mooncoin press forward with Shane’s shot being parried by their keeper to Billy on the left of the area who rifled home the winner.
Kilmacthomas had chances to equalise late on but two attempts went wide and one was bravely saved by TJ in the goal with his legs. Donncha was unlucky when his shot hit the crossbar near the end.
The victory belonged to Mooncoin however to remain top of the table with a 100% record.
