4th division result: Mooncoin Celtic 0 Ferrybank 0

Stalemate in Ashgrove this morning between 2 evenly matched teams.

It took a few minutes to settle in today and it was Ferrybank who had a good chance after 10 minutes but Barry Hearne stopped with his legs. We eventually got the ball down and eventually got a hold on the game. Some of the passing and final ball in to attack was delightful to watch. Neville Synott was a constant thorn in their side all day. We were possibly denied a penalty when Brendan Bradleys shot was stopped by a defenders arms in the 6 yard box. Daragh Beagan was inches away from scoring from a header but just missed out. Both teams hit the cross bar in the second half but overall a fair result.

Best on show Scoby, Neville and Mickey Comerford.

Two well organised teams.

4th division result: Mooncoin Celtic 2 Crusaders 0

A solid display which was overshadowed by bad injury suffered by Gerry Walsh. Playing against a very strong breeze the boys boxed clever in the first half and led through a Mick O’Dwyer goal at half time. They owned the second half completely but missed several chances before Gerry Walsh finished off a great move. Good 3 points secured. We all wish Gerry Walsh a speedy recovery from the injury picked up.
