With only four league games left for our Under 15's, they are finding some form at the right time of the season. Unbeaten in their last four games which included three wins, Sunday's game at home to Celbridge Town was an opportunity for Eamon Lawless' side to move out of the bottom two.
Distracted by their cup exploits in recent weeks the Saints knew three points would lift them above Celbridge and also leapfrog Leixlip United, Malahide United and Mount Merrion. In a blistering seven minute spell just before halftime, the Inchicore lads put the game to bed with three quickfire strikes.
Graham O'Reilly hit a stunning opener in the 26th minute and his strike partner Graham Dixon weighed in with two superb goals of his own in the 28th and 33rd minutes. Celbridge had no reply and they themselves now face the difficult task of avoiding relegation.
“The win now makes it four out of the last five and it the kind of form the lads need ahead of our cup final in a few weeks time,” commented manager Eamon Lawless. “We have been distracted a little getting to the final and it's great to see the confidence growing hopefully we can keep it going and bring that with us into the final. It's the kind of form we need to get us out of trouble and what I want to see from the squad.”
