The Girls U12 A team had a fantastic win over Corach in the Cup running out 60 winners. Great hat tricks for both Bronagh Whitty and Emma Codd. The whole team played outstanding football throughout, with great performances from Orlaith Barrett and Becky Hamilton to name a few. They were deserving winners! Well done girls.

The Girls U16 team gave Seaview United a run for their money in the cup. Unfortunately the girls lacked the belief in the first half that they could win against a higher divison team and allowed Seaview the comfort of a 2-0lead. However, after half time, the girls really started to play as a team. Chloe Foxe scored a great free kick early on but despite having all the play, that second goal would not come. Well done to all!

The Girls Under 12s won their game against Bridge Rovers winning 2 nil both goals comming from Racheal Scallan! A great team performance from all. Well done girls!

The Boys under 12s 1st team were beaten 1-0 in a game where Celtic had a lot of the play but Moyne Rangers scored from the only chance they got both Phillip Mcdermot and Ben Maddock hitting the cross bar. The Boys under 12s 2nd team put on a great performance against a very strong Bunclody team taking the lead before half time with Cormac Burke scoring. Bunclody pulled one back in the second half. Well done to Shane Parle in goal for Celtic who had an outstanding game final 1 all.

The Under 16s boy had a good win against Adamstown winning 5-2! Well done to all!
