16/12/01 :  Celtic's U-13E's Have Well-earned Draw 1-1 v. Duleek FC

In the absence of Gerry Fogarty, Derry O'Riordan took charge of the 13E's in this final round of fixtures before Christmas.  It was a battling performance between these two sides.  They were on level terms at half-time with goals from the home side's Niall O'Donoghue, and the visitors replying with a strike from stocky Ross Finnegan.  The visitors' man-of-the-match was Anthony Markey who put in a sterling performance.  Stephen Downey was also in great form for Duleek.  But the two highlights of the game were

1. Ben Coss's terrific save to keep Celtic in the game, which earned his the home side's man-of-the-match accolade, and

2. the attractive Francesca Fernandez.
