Hanover Harps C v Burrin Celtic
Div One 05/11 14:00
Hanover Harps C 2 - 0 Burrin Celtic

Hanover Harps C 2

Burrin Celtic 0

Hanover were worthy winners against a misfiring Burrin side in the Plots. The visitors had the better of the opening half but Martin Cummings and Keith Deveraux wasted a couple of good openings, and Cummings had a shot well saved by Craig O Reilly in the Harps goal. Slowly Hanover took a grip on proceedings and just before half time Conor McDonald forced an excellent save from Craig White in the Celtic goal. The 2nd half belonged to the home side and they were soon in front when Frankie Dowling released Dillon Murphy who coolly finished to the net. Frankie brought the best of White in the Celtic goal before he combined with Shane Noonan to put Chris Bermingham in to make it 2-0. There was no way back for the visitors and Hanover deservedly collected the points. For the winners Jason Kenny, Dermot McGuill and Eddie Dooley starred, for Burrin Martin Fitzgerald and John Kinsella tried hard.

Burrin Celtic v St Joseph's FC Black
28/10 14:30
Burrin Celtic 0 - 10 St Joseph's FC Black

Burrin Celtic 0

St Joseph’s FC Black 10

This game was a complete disaster for Burrin as Joey’s Black were completely on top, right from the start and by half-time they had secured a 0-5 lead, which was fully deserved, with goals from Dominik Lukawski (4) which included a penalty, together with a goal from Kostya Cahill with Burrin having only a single chance during the half and this was spurned.

Burrin’s woes got worse when they had a defender sent off and Joey’s Black went on to double their lead, by scoring another five goals in the second half, to make it 0-10, through Dinny Farrell, and braces from Mark Johnson and Evan Ingram with Burrin nowhere to be seen, either as an attacking or defending force, which made for a terrible day all round.

It was a fine team performance from Joey’s Black, whilst standing out for Burrin, for their ‘never say die attitude’ were Eli Byrne and Kevin Sheppard

Parkville United v Burrin Celtic
04/11 14:30
Parkville United 6 - 1 Burrin Celtic

Parkville Utd 6

Burrin Celtic FC 1

Parkville secured another decisive win against a very tidy Burrin Celtic team, who put up a determined showing and the final score wasn’t an accurate reflection of the play, it was just that Parkville were more clinical, in front of goal.

Parkville dominated from the start and scored first through Eoin Byrne, after a good assist from Jake Hickey for 1-0.

Parkville went close on a number of occasions, but they found the Burrin keeper, in fine form, as he thwarted the Parkville attackers, time and time again.

After some fine creative play by Griffin Kennedy and Jake Hickey, this resulted in Rory Mc hitting home a beautifully struck volley, from the edge of the box for 2-0 and then just before half-time Eoin Byrne scored his second from a fine cross and Parkville took their comfortable 3-0 lead into the interval.

Parkville continued to dominate, in the second half and just minutes in Griffin Kennedy found Jake Hickey on the edge of the box and he curled his shot around two Burrin defenders and into the bottom corner of the net for 4-0.

Then an excellent through ball from Craig Staunton found Lee Nolan and he fired home for 5-0 and Parkville were cruising, however Burrin had other ideas and a tactical switch saw John Kinsella move up front, and he fashioned a chance for Kevin Sheppard, who duly obliged for 5-1.

Straight from the kick off a fine move between Staunton, Kennedy and Morris, put Griffin Kennedy, ‘one on one’ with the Burrin keeper and he smartly drilled the ball home to make the final score 6-1.

Standing out for Parkville were Craig Staunton, Griffin Kennedy and Stephen Metcalf, whilst best for Burrin were John Kinsella, Aaron Goodwin and Claude Flynn.

Burrin Celtic v Hanover Harps
14/10 14:30
Burrin Celtic 2 - 4 Hanover Harps

Burrin Celtic 2

Hanover Harps 4

This game was played in very windy conditions, in the wide-open grounds of Burrin and was always going to be a key factor in the outcome of this game.

Burrin took an early lead on two minutes as Aaron Goodwin scored for 1-0 but Hanover started to dominate the game and on 15 minutes some sharp passing by Ben Doorley and Joe Dorian put Keelan Lacey through and he scored easily to make it 1-1. A quick-fire double from Dylan Delaney put Hanover 3-1 as the interval came and this was well deserved as Burrin just weren’t at the races.

After a strong team-talk Burrin came out and were so much better and they scored a second goal when Padraic Nolan made a mazy run up the wing beating three opponents and crossing in to John Kinsella who had made a brilliant run in support from midfield and he finished off the move by putting the ball through the keeper’s legs for 2-3. It looked as if Burrin could get back into the game but they lost a player to injury and were down to ten men and Hanover took advantage with some great work by Corey Kelleher who set up Keelan Lacey to make it 2-4 and deservedly inflict Burrin’s first defeat of the season.

Best for Burrin were Nick Mullins, Padraic Nolan and Eli Byrne, whilst standing out for Hanover were Adam Nolan, Ben Doorley, Aaron Byrne and Corey Kelleher.

Burrin Celtic v Nurney Villa
Div One 15/10 11:00
Burrin Celtic 1 - 2 Nurney Villa

Burrin Celtic 1

Nurney Villa 2

Nurney were deserving winners at the Valley on Sunday.

With a gale force wind at their backs in the first half Celtic opened well but Nurney defended well and contained the Celtic attacks comfortably, then on 18 minutes a very poor clearance from Burrin keeper was latched onto by Sean Taylor who netted the opener. Celtic tried to respond and Martin Cummins smacked a ball off the Villa crossbar but half time came with Nurney 1-0 up.

Six minutes into the second half Villa went further ahead when Joe Byrne got to the end line and set up Aiden Lillis for an easy finish. With the elements at their back and a two-goal lead it looked set for an easy win for Nurney but credit to Burrin they did not give in and when Collie Quigley scored a spectacular goal they were right back in the game, however the Nurney defence again stood firm and saw out the contest.

For the winners John Ryan was man of the match with Val Fleming and Shane O’Reilly also notable, DJ Sinnott, James Hickey and Martin Cummins were best for Celtic.

Bagenalstown AFC v Burrin Celtic
07/10 14:30
Bagenalstown AFC 1 - 3 Burrin Celtic

Bagenalstown 1

Burrin Celtic 3

It was a bad start to this game from Bagenalstown, against their near rivals Burrin, as a defensive mix-up, saw Eli Byrne, score with a brilliant header inside six minutes for a 0-1 lead for Burrin.

Bagenalstown had a few chances early in the game, as they were prompted by some hard work from Jack Fowler and Sean Wall, but they just couldn’t finish and it was Burrin who were showing the better form and they went 0-2 up on 43 minutes, when a corner was only half-cleared to Burrin’s DJ Sinnott, who smashed the ball home and they took this lead to the interval.

It was a great start to the second-half for Burrin, as from another corner Liam McGuill headed home for 0-3, but this latest set-back, sparked Bagenalstown into life and they pulled a goal back, almost immediately, through Ryan Lundy-Garr for 1-3.

Burrin switched off and Bagenalstown stepped up the pressure and in the last 20 minutes, they were dominating and unluckily, hit the crossbar on three occasions and Burrin’s keeper - Lochlann McGrath also made many brilliant saves to keep their lead intact.

Full-time came with a 1-3 score line to Burrin.

Best for Bagenalstown were Joedrian Alanis, Charlie Ashmore and Keelan Guidera, whilst standing out for Burrin were Lochlann McGrath, Claude Flynn and John Kinsella.
