U-7s Go Out With Marvellous Display

Congratulations to Dermot Bradshaw and Fran Weafer and their fighting Under-7 troops who put in a super display against the year older Kinvara side, whose greater strength probably was the difference between the teams in the end.  Peter Corcoran (photo below) had put the visiting Kinvara team ahead in the second quarter, which was a surprise since Celtic had looked the much more likely side up to that.  Then Philip Keating (photo below)  made it 2-0 soon after.  The final quarter saw the home side Celtic put in a storming finish, with Ian McSharry (below) reducing the deficit when he rifled home a free kick from just outside the box.  Roddy Collins was amongst the spectators and saw his son, young Roddy, who tormented the visiting defence, go within a whisker of equalising in the dying minutes, but a fine defensive tackle just as Roddy pulled the trigger, saved the day for Kinvara.

We wish the Ashtown side the very best in the final in Dalymount in a couple of weeks time.
