Bohemian U14 6 Clontarf FC 1

On Thursday evening May 14 Bohemians welcomed Clontarf FC to Albert College.

The away side are currently in a mid table position but they were comfortably beaten by a superb Bohemian performance.

The Bohs U14 side have struggled at times this season but the players have worked tirelessly and have given 100% all campaign. This excellent result will give the team a much needed boost as they seek to finish their season on a positive note.

Manager Conor Emerson was extremely pleased with the win and was delighted with the teams performance on the day. The Bohemian goals were scored by Adam Moriarty, who struck a superb free kick into the back of the net.

Two goals came from the impressive Luke Fagan. Brendan Haney also got on the scoresheet with an excellent long range shot. While Kane Phillips scored a further two goals for the home team.

The under fourteen side will hope their good display will continue as they have a derby game against Ballymun United at home on Wednesday Evening.

Bohemian U15 8 Raheny Utd 3

The good results continued with the under-15 team defeating Corduff FC 8-3 in Blanchardstown.

Valentine’s side have had a very good year and a number of players have impressed the management team this year.

On Sunday Adis Velic continued his superb goal scoring form with five goals while his twin brother Atko also got on the scoresheet.

 

Bohemians U18 3 Raheny Utd 0

Yet again our impressive under 18 side won on Sunday.

They faced a strong Raheny United but goals from Shane Carter and two goals from Carl Lewis ensured a well earned 3-0 victory at home in Albert College.

This victory was vital for the FAI Youth Cup champions as they are now only one point behind both Ratoath Harps and Hardwicke FC at the top of the table.

With two games in hand the title is a very real prospect for the side.
