Ladies League Result: Mooncoin Celtic 0 – 1 Park Rangers

A game of two halves with a dominant first half put in by our girls but try as they might, that elusive breakthrough eluded them. Chance after chance after chance but no finished product. Park Rangers got on top just before half time and continued their period of dominance by scoring the crucial goal from an angled drive.

The away side continued to stay on top but luckily good goalkeeping and the woodwork kept the score at 1-0. As time ticked on, only a half chance came our way and Park Rangers held out for the 3 points.

A disappointing end to the season but the girls can be proud of the debut season in a really competitive league, especially the second half of the season where the younger girls grew in confidence. Plenty of positives to bring on to next season.

Great start for u14 Schoolboys squad

After a disappointing season last year Mooncoin U14B made a great start at home to Park Rangers, winning 7-5 in their first game on Saturday.

All players impressed with their skills and determination and played a great attacking game and were unlucky not to score more. Goal scorers were: Cathal Morahan – 1, Finn – 2 and Dylan McGrath – 1. Aoibhe Rees was outstanding and scored a hat trick in her debut appearance and is a great asset to the team.

Ladies Cup Result: Carrick United 3 – 0 Mooncoin Celtic

On Wednesday evening just gone, the message was clear from the off that this young Mooncoin Celtic Ladies side led by Becky Derwin were in Carrick to take the game to a more experienced Carrick side and flew out of the traps in this 1st round fixture.

An unbelievable effort by all involved in the first half in horrendous conditions saw us go close on many occasions and we played some excellent football along the way.

Sommer Grant went closest with a free kick which was just over. Long range shooting was the only option for Carrick and two speculative efforts were converted on 35 minutes and right on half time which was a tough one to swallow. Somehow we found ourselves 2 down at half time but again this bunch picked up the pace and tried everything to get back in to the game but couldn’t breach the Carrick netminder.

A late deflected effort by Carrick put a flattering look on the final score. A huge effort by all involved in conditions which were not pleasant and very difficult to be playing in near darkness for the last 20 minutes.

Best of luck to Carrick in the semi final against Dungarvan and a big well done to referee Paul Butler for keeping the game moving all night.
We are hopeful of playing our final league fixture against Park Rangers in Suir Crescent next week and await confirmation from the fixtures secretary.

Schoolboy Player to play with Waterford FC

The new Schoolboys season is about to start and we already have a bit of good news we would like to share with all members and supporters which occurred recently.

One of our own schoolboy players has recently requested to sign for Waterford FC and last Sunday, Daniel Ponce de Leon starred in a mini tournament for them against Rangers of Northern Ireland, Bohemians Fc and Klub Kildare, delivering excellent performances.

All in Mooncoin Celtic are absolutely delighted for Daniel on making the step up to the higher level of underage football at League of Ireland level. His attitude, hard work and superb application to everything he does on and off the pitch has paid off and Daniel has a very very bright future ahead of him in the game.

Well done to all within the club who have helped Daniel along the way from academy level right up to his recent opportunity with Waterford FC.

We will be following Daniel very closely with Waterford Fc in the U14 season of 2023. Congratulations Daniel and the very best of luck young man.
