Burrin Celtic AFC 3 - 2 Clerihan

In the last 16 tie in the south East region of the SFAI trophy, Burrin came out on top after extra time. Both teams played some really good football and made it a very enjoyable match to watch.

Burrin had enough chances to win this game by 5 goals but just didn’t go their way in the first half after hitting the post a few times, and the Clerihan keeper having a brilliant game. Clerihan scored their second just before half time and started to look more comfortable. Burrin came out a different team in the second half as super sub Tadhg Campbell scoring twice to bring the game to extra time. Extra time was completely dominated from the home side. Ryan Abbey looked like he was going to score a worldie from outside the box after connecting perfectly from a volley but it just going over the bar. The winner came from Bobby Finn after a scramble in the box and he slotted it home to progress Burrin.

Best for Burrin Celtic we’re Colm Donald, Daire Nolan, Robbie Kelliher and Glen Cantwell.

After a few changes from Burrin here and an unbelievable fighting spirit, the home side looked like they got a new lease of life. Glen Cantwell went Down in the box and got a penalty, which he converted to make it 4-3. With just 4 minutes to go, the man of the match Bill Roberts was through on goal after Ciaran Redmond played the ball through the away side, and Bill slotted it past the keeper. Park Rangers thought they won the game after the keeper was off his line and a shot on goal but Sean Dunne with a goal line clearance gave Burrin even more momentum. With just 2 minutes to go, Bobby Finn played the same ball through to Bill Roberts and he slotted it home to progress Burrin to the next round. An absolutely amazing game for both sides, with every player, parent and coach going through so many emotions in the final minutes. Credit to both teams for their performance after a long game. Man of the match was Ballons Bill Roberts, but also excelling we’re Daire Nolan, Ciaran Redmond and Glen Cantwell.

Ballymurphy Celtic 1 - 2 Burrin Celtic AFC

In a great game,of end to end football,a great hard fought battle,with a grain of rice tipping the scale in burrins favour.

The home side had 5 brilliant chances in a 1st half that Ballymurphy had the upper hand,the burrin keeper being kept busy by some great attacking play by the home side,but burrin stuck at it and were strong in defence,and both teams went in 0-0 at the break.

Bally started the 2nd half the way they ended 1st but against the run of play,burrin took the lead,Bally heads didn’t go down and they persevered with great work from Noah fitzpatrick down the wing and the ball in caused some confusion in burrin defence and the ball came off one of the defenders and past the burrin keeper,1-1,but with 3 mins to go,a Bally side line throw was picked up by the burrin striker,who hit the ball and brought a great save From Callum kelly,but an unrushing burrin striker stuck the rebound in the Bally net,and as Bally tried hard for last few mins for the equilizer,it wasn’t to be,and plenty of broken hearts at the final whistle.

Both teams had great team performances and it would be unfair to single out any players in particular
