Parkville United AFC 0 - 12 Burrin Celtic AFC

Burrin Celtic completed the U14 league and cup double by beating Parkville United in the cup final. Celtic were favourites going into the fixture after winning the Div 1 league but Parkville were deserved finalists after a terrific cup run.

Burrin quickly went into the lead with Edward O’Byrne scoring after some good play by Charlie Clarke. Matthew Drought then put Celtic two goals ahead with a fine long range effort. Parkville didn’t let their heads drop though and came back into the game. However Burrin were just too strong and three more goals from Edward O’Byrne and another from Evan Kelliher left the score 6-0 to the Division 1 league champions at half time.

Both sides made changes in the second half and the game continued to play out the same as the first half with Burrin creating chances. Six more goals came through Aaron Kelly, James Bergin, Kyle Connolly, Kyle Maloney, Edward O’Byrne and Evan Kelliher, to leave the score 12-0 to Burrin Celtic.

The Parkville players responded to the crowd cheering them on and kept fighting for every ball right up to the final whistle. Burrin Celtic completed a memorable year and added the cup to their league trophy.

Noah Cullen was awarded man of the match but it could’ve been anyone from 6 or 7 Celtic players with Charlie Clarke, Edward O’Byrne and Matthew Drought particularly impressing.
