RED BARON II hits three !
In the absence of Red Baron Mark 1 who was off an a solo tour somewhere, Red
Baron Mark 2 took centre stage on Saturday in a friendly game against
International FC at Futako stadium.
Gillet,a relative newcomer to the Celts, scored not only his first goal for
the Celts but his second and third too as the Celts ran out seven nil
winners over a depleted International FC.
The Celts took a while to find their stride and indeed if it wasn't for
their solid back four, in particular Doherty, they may have gone a goal down
in the first twenty minutes.
However, once Persson, who when given a chance invariably comes up with the
goods, opened the scoring, the Celts moved up a gear and started running
Conducting the midfield as ever, Mehigan showed no hesitation in burying a
powerful header from a corner kick which left the Celts two up at half time.
Four changes were made at the interval and given that it was the middle of
the summer it was gratifing to see such a strong squad out thus allowing the
Celts to use their strength in depth.
Gillet got his hat-trick in the second half and two headed goals from
Dermody and Dolan respectively brought the tally to seven. Indeed it could
have been more but overall this was a solid performance and a useful August
fixture in preparation for the more competitive games to come in Autumn.
As the players trooped off the field,they noticed that there was sight nor
sound of Captain Fantastic (previously spotted doing a Sean Kelly impression
around the stadium).
If, as suspected, he was ensonced in O'Carolans then Red Baron Mark 1 will
be issuing serious fines to the
XXXXXX (Turn the sound up !)
Oh yeah, Cat Barry made a great save much to his and everyone elses astonishment !
Barry, Mullane, Steele, Ryan, Doherty, Mehigan, Dermody, Murray, Cumiskey, Gillet,Persson
Dolan, O'Keeffe, Beattie, Conry,
I think the opposition were a bit intimidated by our supporters.
