Seven up for Newmarket Celtic

Newmarket Celtic A 3 Avenue United A 2 (after extra time) Newmarket are the Clare soccer cup champions for the seventh successive year but for much of this evening’s final at Frank Healy Park in Doora it looked as if they would have to settle for the runners up spot. In the end, however, the experience that Newmarket have gained in recent seasons saw them stage a tremendous rally and an injury time goal levelled the tie at 2-2 and forced extra time. The game was in the last minute of the extra period and fans were asking when the replay was likely when the champions struck for the winner, a score which sparked off great celebrations amongst their loyal fans Two Mark Roche goals in a three minute spell shortly before half time gave Avenue United a 2-0 interval advantage and this was still the position at the three quarter stage. Celtic had introduced Colin Ryan and Colin Smyth, …

Injury time goal seals Champion cup for Clonlara

Clonlara 1-11 Crusheen 0-13 An injury time goal from Cian Moriarty saw Clonlara win the Clare Champion cup (senior hurling league) at the expense of Crusheen in a well contested final at a well appointed Glenomra Park in Broadford this afternoon. In an entertaining game in which the sides were level on four occasions, the result was in doubt right to the final whistle. Indeed, after Moriarty’s goal, Crusheen had an opportunity to draw level or maybe win the game but Cian Dillon’s effort on goal was stopped and the final whistle followed leaving Clonlara as champions for the first time since 2009 Points were exchanged twice in the opening ten minutes before Crusheen opened a two point lead by the end of the first quarter and they went on to lead by three at half time when the score was 0-8 to 0-5. Both sides were guilty of mistakes and missed changes and, in the case of the latter, …

Hayes strikes twice as Newmarket make history

Newmarket Celtic A 2 Avenue United B 0 In a year in which they contested the concluding stages of the Munster junior cup, the FAI junior cup and the Munster champions cup, its fitting that Newmarket Celtic should make Clare soccer history. At a sun splashed Clare soccer county grounds at Doora this Saturday evening, they won the Clare cup for a record fifth year in succession, a result that sees them extend their lead at the top of the roll of honour. Eoin Hayes scored both goals for the winners and was later named as the man of the match. The first came just after the mid point when Hayes was adjudged to have been fouled in the area after winning possession from a Stephen Kelly delivery and referee Pa Gleeson had no hesitation in pointing to the penalty spot. Brian Callinan picked up a yellow card for the foul and Hayes drilled the ball low to the corner …

Another cup for Newmarket Celtic

Newmarket Celtic 1 Moher Celtic 0 [doptg id=”24″] A superb left foot volley from Killian Howard decided the under 19 cup final at the county grounds in Doora on Monday and completed a great weekend for Newmarket Celtic. Less than forty eight hours earlier Celtic captured the junior cup title for the third year in a row, the first time that the club achieved that feat. Monday’s final was a repeat of the Michael O’Gorman youths cup final of two weeks ago when Moher emerged victorious and many of the same players were in action in this decider. The all important goal came in the twentieth minute when Howards powerful left foot volley found the top corner of Keith Sexton’s net. It was a goal worthy of any final. Five minutes earlier Moher were reduced to ten players when Sean Noonan saw red for a tackle on Cathal Hayes. On the run of play, the Brian Arthur manager Newmarket deserved …

Ennis Town end Avenue’s cup hopes

By Seamus Hayes The Clare soccer cup final on May 31 will be between Newmarket Celtic A and Ennis Town A. Newmarket justified favouritism when scoring a 4-2 win over surprise packets West Clare at the County grounds on Sunday morning. They dominated the opening half and led 4-0 at the break thanks to goals from Stephen Kelly, Eoin O’Brien, Eoin Hayes and Paudie Hayes. Two minutes into the second half they should have extended their lead when they were awarded a penalty but team captain Michael Crosby saw his effort rebound off the crossbar. West Clare were given a lifeline midway through the half when Jason Russell converted a penalty after he was fouled and twelve minutes from time he found the net again, this time from a free. However, that was as close as they got as the more experienced Newmarket held control for the remaining time to record a merited victory. On Saturday evening Ennis Town A …
