Celtic's first-half double puts United to the 'sword'

Portmarnock U-10s enjoyed an impressive 4-0 win in their first ever league outing against St Kevin's Boys in the DDSL on Sunday morning.

TWO first-half goals proved enough to secure the home side the points in this well contested fixture played in Baldoyle on Sunday.

The under-14 set up has certainly produced an upsurge in interest in the club with five teams being fielded and impressively Celtic is represented in the top three divisions. Their pre-season warm up has been impressive with the club which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year hosting a very successful under-14 tournament which also included teams from Balbriggan, Balscadden Boys and Baldoyle. Brian Torley's men won their tournament after playing an exciting 2-2 draw with Balscadden before eventually winning out on penalties. And they carried that form into Sunday with Aaron Renehan opening the scoring on 20 minutes with an expert chip. Celtic doubled their lead when Felip Detyna slotted home from inside a congested goalmouth. Baldoyle pulled one back from a corner and there followed a spell of sustained pressure. Celtic keeper, AJ McCormack proved alert to the danger and Joe Torley then went close to putting the game to bed when his thundering effort from outside the box came back off the post. And while Baldoyle applied more pressure, Celtic held on in a game that saw Jason Condon make a very impressive debut up front.
