Mal­low United’s U/14 Pre­mier team con­tin­ued their im­pres­sive start to the sea­son with a good away win at Crosshaven. The game was never in any real doubt as Mal­low started strong con­trol­ling the game through­out the pitch.

Crosshaven tried to counter-at­tack when in pos­ses­sion but with a for­mi­da­ble back five which in­cluded Ar­tur Osinki, Daniel Ryan, Don­n­chadh O’Do­herty, Shane O’Connell and Ben Cree­don they found it very dif­fi­cult to break through the Mal­low United rear-guard.

As the game pro­gressed Mal­low in­creased the pres­sure and be­gan to threaten with some fan­tas­tic play around the mid­dle of the pitch from Ben Buck­ley, Alex O’Leary and Ciaran O’Sul­li­van.

Mal­low got the break­through they de­served when Kennedy Amechi slot­ted home from close range. The Mal­low front line was in fine form with Evan Mag­ner link­ing well with Leon Doody through­out the game.

Amechi con­tin­ued to pen­e­trate the Crosshaven de­fence and claimed a hat­trick as Shane O’Connell added two with Alex O’Leary round­ing off the scor­ing with a fine shot.

Subs used were Paul Grif­fin, Joe Power and John Ad­edji - all of whom im­pressed when in­tro­duced. This team are now cur­rently joint top of the Pre­mier Di­vi­sion.

Mal­low United U/14 Pre­mier Squad: Ar­tur Osinki, Daniel Ryan, Don­n­chadh O’Do­herty, Shane O’Connell, Ben Cree­don, Ben Buck­ley, Alex O’Leary, Ciaran O’Sul­li­van, Kennedy Amechi, Evan Mag­ner, Leon Doody, Paul Grif­fin, Joe Power and John Ad­edji.

Mal­low United’s U/13 Pre­mier team faced Corinthi­ans in St Gob­nait’s Park on Satur­day lunch time miss­ing three of their reg­u­lar starters.

This was a tough task play­ing a Corinthi­ans team push­ing for the Pre­mier ti­tle.

Play­ing against a strong wind in the first half the Mal­low lads were find­ing it hard to get out of their own half. They were 2-0 down in a short space of time and 3-0 down within 15mins of start­ing.

The Mal­low boys did not drop their heads, how­ever, and fought on bravely. Their ef­forts were re­warded when a Daniel Smith cross found Shane Cronin for a good strike to the corner of the goal.

Corinthi­ans con­tin­ued to press, how­ever, and scored a fourth just be­fore half time. The sec­ond half was more bal­anced with nei­ther side cre­at­ing any clear chances.

This was a tough af­ter­noon but it gave all play­ers on the panel a chance for game time and they showed com­pe­ti­tion for places is strong.

Mal­low’s U/13s move on to train­ing next week and con­tinue their league cam­paign away to Ringma­hon Rangers next Satur­day morn­ing.

Mal­low United U/13 Pre­mier Squad: Kevin Kil­martin, Cory Buck­ley, Alan O’Connell, Billy O’Ke­effe, Niall Burke, Jamie O’Neill, Jerry Collins, Don­n­chadh Bar­rett, Louis Hanover, Daniel Smith, Cor­mac O’Sul­li­van, Cor­mac Dil­worth, Shane Cronin Do­minic Ser­afin and De­nis Mulc­ahy.
