U 11 MAJOR DIVISION - the clubs first historic win


Kynog Utd u11's had the honour of starting the new season at home in their new grounds in Kynog Park Timahoe. A large crowd were present to greet Moone Celtic and the children produced an exciting and close game of football.

Early play saw both goalies Lee Dempsey from Kynog and Mark Gynn from Moone pull off some excellent saves. The midfield battle was hard but fair with Aidan Jones of Moone covering every blad of grass for his team. The home team with midfield man Conor Murray finally broke the deadline set up by battling forward Joseph Kenny.

At the turn Kynog struck early again through Garry Harnett but Moone were not to be undone and responded straight away with a great goal from Paudie Morgan. Both teams pushed forward at this stage and on a break away Adam Lynch was fouled setting up a free for Kynog. Upstepped Dylan Donoghue with a pile driver of a free kick into the top corner to restore Kynog's two goal advantage. At this stage Moone threw everything at Kynog with Adam Stephenson driving them forward but the home team held on for the Clubs historic first win as a schoolboys team.

Kynog were well served by Declan Reilly, Luke Herbert, Eoin Kelly with Conor Donoghue and Brian Elliott forming a rock at defence. Thanks to Moone for a very supporting game and we look forward to the return fixture.
