'Boy' what a surprise for Abbey

DIVISION 2 promotion challengers Abbey Celtic suffered a setback when going down to an unexpected defeat away to Athboy on Sunday morning.
Overall it was a poor performance by the Drogheda side against an Athboy outfit who looked a far hungrier side and were good value for their 2-0 interval lead.
Abbey's display improved marginally in the second half and they pulled a goal back through Davey Bracken on 76 minutes, but their trait of working hard for each other was largely absent, while the Meath club picked up the Abbey habit and deservedly added to their tally in stoppage time.
Best of a bad bunch for Abbey Celtic on the day were Stephen Bishop, Bracken and Dixie Nugent.
