Castleknock Celtic 6 : 1 Malahide Utd
This game started at a furious pace with Celtic trying to unsettle
tough opposition. Some great work on the left hand side by Robert Irwin
led to the first chance of the match which was despatched to the net by
Within minutes Celtic's lead was doubled with a great strike from
Francis O Donnell. Substitute Christopher Hoey barely on the pitch for
his first ever 11-A-Side game scored Celtic's third and fifth goal and
in between helped create Niall Myron's second goal. This capped a great
twenty minute spell of fast , passing football when Malahide could only
register a single goal. The second half was much quieter as Celtic made
a few changes but continued to control the game. However there was still
time for Niall Myron to complete his hat-trick and take the man of the
match award. Celtic are now 8 games unbeaten.

This NDSL U-11s game started in dense fog which is the only explanation for Celtic
missing a host of early chances. However, goals in the first half by
Francis O'Donnell and Craig Norton settled the nerves from the
sideline. Further goals from Shane Kennedy and another from Francis
O'Donnell early in the second half put the result beyond doubt. Two late
strikes from Jordan McMillan finished the scoring and gave Celtic a
deserved 3 points. The Man of the Match award went to right full back
Alan Waters whose defence kept their third clean sheet of the season.
Celtic have gone seven matches unbeaten this season.
