Forth Celtic get their act together

FORTH CELTIC chose the perfect time to kick-start their season. Sitting at the foot of the Premier Division table and trailing by a goal to nil against Moyne Rangers on Sunday last, they got their heads together and re-grouped to run out 2-1 winners and claim their first points of the season.

Celtic went into Sunday's clash with a less than pretty record of zero points, with 23 goals leaked in four outings. So when Rangers went ahead, a trouncing could have been expected. But Anthony Hayes and Ryan Murphy had different ideas and they both netted in the second period to guide their side to victory.

Meanwhile, at Ounavarra Park, there was another comeback on the cards as Courtown Hibs entertained Gorey Rangers. Rangers went a goal to the good only for Ian Travers to peg them back.

The visitors got their noses in front again, but Travers volleyed home to tie up the scores for a second time and then with ten minutes remaining Eugene O'Brien popped up to net the winner for Hibs.

Wexford Bohs and Campile United contested the only other Premier Division fixture of the weekend. United were unable to mount a comeback though and instead they succumbed to a 4-1 defeat at the hands of the fourth-placed side, who had Jason Swords (two), Lee Chin and Mick Murphy to thank for their efforts.
