Glenmuir United claimed the local bragging rights in the U16 League derby on Sunday afternoon but they were pushed all the way by the Glenmuir Celtic team who deserved something from the game.

United were two ahead at the interval, although that scoreline was a little harsh on Celtic. Clinical finishing at important times proved to be the main difference between the teams.

Azeez Ogunfowora scored the first goal in the opening minute and Dean Connolly scored the second goal in the last minute of the first half.

The trend continued when Chad McEneaney made it 3-0 in the first minute of the second half.

Celtic created plenty of chances throughout the game but Timmy Olowookere and Odhran Murphy could only find the side netting when put through on goal.

However Celtic did get a deserved goal in the 61st minute when Osas Eghaghe timed his run to perfection to slot home after a terrific defence splitting pass from Nicholas Browne.

Glenmuir Celtic: Connor Byrne, Ormolu Okuro, Andrew Bent, Cameron McKeown, Nicholas Browne, Tommy Olowookere, Odhran Murphy, Ronain Murphy, Eoin Lennon, Connor Kilkenny, Timmy Olowookere, Cian Roddy, Osas Eghaghe.

Glenmuir United: Michael Somers, Connor Nicholson, Amara Ibeh, Emmanuel Kennan, Dean Connolly, Chad McEneaney, Paddy O’Connell, Azeez Ogunfowora, Caolan Dines, Peter McElroy, Edgar Bitanis, Gavin Markey, Niall Carraher.

Referee: Frank Brennan.
