TSDL Tipperary Cup 1st Round
Clonmel Celtic 6
St Nicholas Fc 1
Clonmel Celtic got the festive season off to the perfect start with a 6-1 win over suitably named St Nicholas this afternoon. After last week’s hugely disappointing exit from the FAI Junior Cup it was good to get a win under the belts. Celtic wasted no time going about their business with goals from Aaron Moroney and Evan McGuire putting the Celts 2-0 up within the first 10 minutes.
Celtic continued to dominate with Moroney adding a second and Paul Kennedy also showing he hasn’t lost in touch in front of goal as Celtic raced into a 4-0 lead. Darren Stokes pulled one back for the visitors before the break after Celtic were guilty of some weak finishing to complete the first half with a healthy lead.
In fairness to the visitors they kept batting away with Brian Sweeney forced into some good saves in the second period before Aaron Moroney completed his hat trick from the spot on 65 minutes. There was also a successful penalty conversion from debutant Levi Whelan after 72 minutes as Celtic eased into Round 2 of the Tipperary Cup with a 6-1 win.
