It’s been a good start to this season’s campaign with two wins out of two. We began with a hard-fought 5-4 away win in Cabra. It was an absolute cracker of a game in wet and wintry conditions. Aaron Murphy-Dunne was captain for the game and he responded with an amazing haul of 4 goals. Ceilim Gannon scored a late winner to get our season off to a winning start. Adam Nulty played a splendid match in midfield for us. Igor was very solid at the back.
Team: Craig, Kyle, Igor, Dylan, Joshua, Kuba, Aaron M, Adam, Jake, Ceilim, Arron MD(c). Subs: All of the subs. came on: Ciaran, Cian, Stephen, Ryan, Scott.
Game two was at home against old rivals Donnycarney and we emerged victorious on a scoreline of 2-0. We netted twice in the second half through an excellent solo effort from Ceilim Gannon and a thunderous free-kick from Aaron Meleady. Jake O’Neill from 3rd class excelled on his home debut. After a nervous first half we played some great attacking football in the second period. Luke and Kuba were calm at the back and Aaron, Igor and Adam started to boss the midfield. They supplied our skilful front trio with plenty of ball to attack our opponents and only good goalkeeping and the offside flag prevented us from adding to our tally.
Team: Craig, Joshua, Kuba, Luke, Dylan, Igor, Aaron M, Adam (c), Jake, Ceilim, Aaron MD. Subs: (5 came on) Ciaran, Cian, Scott, Stephen, Kyle, Ryan.
Next up for us is another tricky away trip to the Navan Road followed by a home match against our local friends and rivals, John Scottus. Let’s hope our lucky new kit sees us progress through from our group to the semi-finals.
