H&W Welders

The boys were on the back of two good performances and they knew that it would take them to be at their best to beat a high flying Harland & Wolff Welders team. With a few changes to the team due to injuries and sickness the boys really rallied together and started strong. Braniff in defence was an inspiration to his team mates, winning tackle after tackle and showing great leadership qualities to keep the team in shape. Winger Hopkins was winning his own personal battle down the right hand side and getting some good balls into the box which McBride was trying hard to get on the end of. Against the run of play H&W grabbed the lead with only 5 minutes to go before the break this was a blow to the team, however the never say die attitude that we have saw over the past few weeks came to the fore and within minutes the Saints side had drawn level after a great low drive into the bottom left hand corner from Hopkins. The second half started much the same as the first with the Saints having more possession and chances. Both subs came on after 5 minutes and settled into the game extremely well with Kelly filling his usual role of left back after Robinson made way, Kernaghan slotted into central midfield in place of Johnston who showed some fine passes and quality touches in the middle of the park. It was not long until the Saints moved ahead when a brilliant corner was met by the head of Kernaghan who made no mistake. McBride who was causing issues all game with his speed broke past the line of defence and calmly slotted home. Shortly before full time the boys made sure of the 3 points when Carville did well down the left hand side and beat the H&W keeper with a fine finish. The team did very well to keep a clean sheet in the second half, in no small part down to; Bishop, Braniff and Kelly in defence and also some terrific saves from Keeper McGreevy – Credit should also be made to Sproule who worked tirelessly throughout the whole game and gave the effort that has been evident in all his performances this season. All Saint’s players played extremely well and this just proves that on their day they can provide more than a challenge to any team they face.



Goal Scorers: Oliver McBride (1), Ben Hopkins (1), Matthew Kernaghan (1), Alex Carville (1)
