U12 and U14 Connacht Cup Finals

Big weekend lies ahead for club's U-12 and U-14 teams as they aim to retained the Connacht Cup provincial titles won last May by the club. 

Both games will take place tomorrow (Saturday 2nd May) at Strand Celtic’s grounds in Sligo with the U-12’s first in action when they take on Longford side, Melview FC, with kick-off at 12 noon. 

Eric Connolly and Owen Shaughnessy’s side will go into the game on the back of retaining the GFA Premier Division league title for a third year in succession for the club after they claimed the points needed with a win over Athenry at Fahy’s Field on Wednesday evening. Needing just a point from their remaining two games they comfortably collected all three points with Callum Carroll hitting a hat-trick along with two goals from Dylan Traynor and goals from Liam Melody, Sam O'Neill, Aaron Neary and Aaron Dossen. They had earlier in the week defeated Knocknacarra 3-1 in the league last Saturday morning at Fahy's Field with goals from Aaron Neary, Luke O'Gorman and Callum Carroll.

The club's U-14’s face Mayo side, Castlebar Celtic, in their provincial final in Sligo tomorrow afternoon with kick-off in that game at 2.30 pm. Coley Kelly and Pa O’Connell’s side head into the game having also retained the Premier Division league title as they were presented with the Coley Smyth Memorial Cup last Monday evening in Eamonn Deacy Park after a friendly game with the Galway Kennedy Cup squad They will also be hoping to retain the Connacht Cup won last year in Headford as they seek a treble of titles having also advanced to the final of the GFA Cup.
