Celtic Stars are the Senior Division Two champions after a big victory against a depleted Burrin Celtic side in The Valley.

The home side only had eight players on the field during kick-off and Celtic Stars opened them up a few times early on. Senan Finucan crossed the ball to Gareth Cullen but he headed wide. On seven minutes, Stars were in again as Dale Austin played the ball through to PJ O’Keeffe but he couldn’t steer his shot on target.

Burrin eventually conceded after 21 minutes when Finucan found O’Keeffe with a pass and he made no mistake this time around. It was 2-0 to the Stars after 27 minutes when O’Keefe was on hand to poke in the ball after a goalmouth scramble. O’Keefe turned provider for the third goal as he crossed it in to Martin Byrne who shot it in with five minutes to go to make the score 3-0 at the break.

Stars got their fourth goal seven minutes after the restart when Finucan got to the end line and cut it back to Byrne as he headed in his second goal of the game. O’Keeffe and Francis Byrne combined before Byrne slotted home with ten minutes to go. Stars got their final goal of the game with five minutes to go when O’Keefe’s corner went to Mark Collins and he drove it in from the edge of the box.

Best players for the winners were Martin Byrne, PJ O’Keeffe and Eoin Devlin while all the players played well for Burrin Celtic.

Burrin started the second-half better and they won a free-kick, just outside the box. Ali Collier took it and smashed a shot against the cross bar and Fergus Moody scored from the rebound for 1-5.

Burrin Celtic v Straffan
LFA o35 Cup 19/08 17:00
Burrin Celtic 2 - 4 Straffan

LFA O 35’s Cup Round 4.

Burrin Celtic ‘A’ 1

Straffan AFC 1

Straffan win 4-2 on penalties.

Burrin Celtic welcomed Kildare side Straffan AFC to the valley on Saturday in the last 16 of the LFA Youths Cup. This was a special day for the Ballon side as Straffan AFC boasted none other than former Republic of Ireland International player Niall Quinn as their centre forward.

Undaunted by the opposition Burrin Celtic got off to the better start. With 11 minutes played, Darren Moore gave a great through ball to set up Matty Dowling who slotted home to give the home side the lead. As the half continued there were chances for both sides. Marcin Bieniasz had a super chance to double Burrin’s lead on the stroke off half time but the Straffan keeper made a fine save.

The second half was fiercely fought and evenly contested. The 50-year-old former International Quinn was instrumental in setting up the equaliser for Straffan, with a customary flick on with his head to set up Aidan Griffin who slotted home.

The game finished 1 all and Straffan proceeded to the next round winning 4-2 on penalties.

Burrin were disappointed not to progress having been the better team for much of the match. Straffan now meet the winners of East Wall Bessborough and our own New Oak Boys in the Quarter Finals.
