A penultimate league game at home to Orchard Celtic on a perfect spring morning
with the perfect result. Orchard Celtic are our nearest challengers and our nemesis, a
bit like Moriarty is to Sherlock Homes and our young Peas won out by 2 goals to nil
in a tense affair that was 0-0 at half time. We have one match left at home and if we
win it without putting the mockers on it you can guess the rest.
To the match, from the start our lads meant business and stood up to the physical and
verbal challenges of the opposition, never deviating from our style of play and kept
composed under all obstacles put in their way. In a tense game with both teams giving
everything at half time it was 0-0. A few quick words and some direction at half time
we came out all guns blazing in the second half and doubled our efforts and it paid
off. It was Jack Quinn with a determined surging run from midfield that opened the
scoring with the first of his brace of goals, he also hit the post for good measure. The
second goal in particular, most important, sealed the victory and it was Jack's third
goal in the last two matches, critical goals at the right time in our season.
I am also delighted at another clean sheet, three in a row now, again down to
superb goal keeping from Josh helped also by excellent defending by Luke, another
defensive master class, Aron and Big Josh tackled with vigour the whole match.
I n midfield, Jack Gleeson had the ball on a string supported by Colm Og, Captain
for today's game and having never lost under his captaincy, Jamie ran the channels,
Kyle despite feeling poorly, put in a huge effort as did the tireless Keyan. In this
match tactically with Justin we had tweaked his usual position from centre forward to
dropping slightly deeper and all the good forward play went through him.
I am delighted with the team's progress and hopefully we will win the next match and
we will have had the perfect season. I believe it is all down to all the effort during
the season at training and it is making those cold wet winter sessions all the more
worth while. The support from the sidelines again was tremendous and vocal and
contributed to the result, no doubt. I want to extend a huge thanks to the parents for
their continued support.
