Clonmel Celtic got the better of Town reserves in the first round of the Tipperary Cup on a 3-0 score-line in Ferryhouse. The game was tight for the first 25 minutes but then a long range effort from Peter O’Dowd somehow found the net to put the visitors 1 nil up.

Celtic were dominating the game and with 35 minutes on the clock Peter O’Dowd struck what looked like a tame free kick but somehow the ball managed to scramble under the goalkeeper to make it 2-0 to Celtic.

The 2nd half saw Town freshen up the team and there was more bite to their play. Their midfield started to control things and can count themselves unlucky not to have scored on more than one occasion when the Celtic goalie was called into action.

Town were pushing hard but were dealt a blow when against the run of play Niall Prendergast unleashed a thunderbolt from 30 yards that flew into the top corner of the net to give Celtic a 3-0 lead.

Town did have the ball in the net but was it was ruled out for offside, and to their credit they kept coming at Celtic but some fine goalkeeping and some sloppy finishing stopped them from getting back into the tie. Celtic would see out the game with a 3-0 win. It was a derby played in good spirits with some good play by both sides. It’s Celtic who prevail to the next round though in what was an entertaining tie in Ferryhouse.
