NEFL Premier Division

Quay Celtic 0-1 Newfoundwell

Quay Celtic suffered their sixth league defeat of the season at Clancy Park on Thursday night as Ian Devine's deflected strike saw Newfoundwell run-out 1-0 victors.

The hosts were arguably the better side throughout, however, they lacked a killer touch in attack with Drew Duffy going closest to opening their account in the first-half. The midfielder saw his low free-kick from 25-yards tipped around the post as Quay went to the interval a goal behind.

The second-half saw Martin Smith's men assume the majority of the possession, playing some neat football. But, a few Vinny Smith efforts apart, they never looked like drawing level in what turned out to be a frustrating fare for the Point Road side.

Quay Celtic: John Rogers; Stefan McKevitt, Pauric Browne, Dean Sheil, Éanna McArdle, David Redmond; Drew Duffy, Seán Hand, Niall McLaughlin; Aaron Comerford, Vinny Smith
