Bangor take the spoils in early season derby thriller

There is no better way to warm the cockles of the early season than with a nice and tasty local derby and last Tuesday night two of the fiercest rivals in amateur football went head to head when LSL champions Crumlin United took on neighbours Bangor Celtic at Armagh Road.

In the end it was Bangor that took the early season spoils as a single goal from Terry Gleeson settled the issue as the former champions pegged back their title holding neighbours with an impressive performance.

Bangor, who even managed to miss a penalty, finally got the better of the Blues after failing to post a win against their neighbours in three outings last season.

Ace marksman Barry Young got another LSL season off to a flyer last Saturday as the Ringsend Rovers striker netted all his side's four goals in their thrilling Major 1A encounter with Kilnamanagh.

Young, who a couple of seasons ago netted one of the quickest hat-tricks in the LSL when thumping home his trio in five minutes, showed that the close season did little to dampen his sharpness in front of goal as he picked apart the Tallaght side's defence.

The Irishtown man put his side two goals to the good only for Kilnamanagh to turn the game on its head by smashing home a three-goal salvo to push in front. Young replied for the Rovers, who just missed out on promotion last season, by netting another two goals to claim the points.
