Under-19 results and fixtures.


A second half Dillon McKay brace secured a 2-1 win for a Bohemians Under-10 side who had conceded early on in this encounter.

Bohs fell behind after five minutes in the first half, but a sublime team performance ensured victory.

It wasn’t until shortly after half-time that McKay leveled with a well-taken shot after some impressive build-up play and a great assist by Coilín Nesbitt.

The team’s recent work on their passing game helped them on their way just five minutes later, and another great move was finished by McKay as the keeper fumbled his shot into his own net giving Bohs the lead.

Goalkeeper Kyle Carroll also put on a great performance and he was helped by Ryan Moore who put on a solid display in his first game at centre back.



Bohemians started full of spark and invention, asking frequent questions of the Shelbourne defence, writes STEPHEN BURKE.

A shot from Aaron Molloy wasn’t far off, likewise a header from Oisin Lynch. With Malike Bentouguibi and Philip Rusk also regularly prompting attacks, Shels were rarely out of their half in the first 20 minutes.

In the 27th minute, the Gypsies carved open the home defence but unfortunately Bentouguibi miscued close in with just the keeper to beat. Shels came more into the game, but Bohs looked the most likely to make the breakthrough going in at the break.

In the second half Bohs found it difficult to get back into their rhythm. Things were really livened up by Shels taking the lead with a really good strike in the 56th minute, a shot Aaron McKenna had no chance of saving.

Bohs responded, winning a free in a central position; Stephen Best, impressive throughout, thumped the dead ball into life, it spun off the defensive wall and Fionntan Byrne was in to side foot beyond the despairing clutches of home keeper Donnelly to make it 1-1 on the hour.


Shels came back with a killer blow, regaining the lead two minutes later, a cross from the right neatly headed home at the far stick by Packenham. Try as they indeed did, Bohs couldn’t regain the initiative. Shels now looked confident and sealed the win in the 83rd minute after a skilful and most gloriously determined run and finish by Confrey.

Played in constant rain, the pitch heavy but holding up well considering, these two young sides gave their all.

Shelbourne - Eric Donnelly; Ryan Robinson, Gavin Kearney, Darragh Gannon, Dylan Grimes (88 Conor Keeley), Sean McGraine, Aaron Ashe, Stephen Confrey, Luke Doyle, David Pakenham (72 Ahu Obhakhan), Aaron Robinson (capt).

Under-12s update

There was a great match played by the Bohs under-12s over the weekend. They unluckily lost 5-3, but, this was all after a fantastic fightback from the young Gypsies to bring the score from 4-1 to the opposition to 4-3.

There were some great goals from Michael Meehan and Cathal Byrne, with the latter being a fine assist after some good one-two passing and movement down the right wing.

The coach was happy to see the team keep going and come back into the game, with a mention that there were some superb saves from Lennon Connolly that gave the outfield players the confidence to keep going.

Under-14 update

Bohemians under-14 wsere unfortunate to come away from their game against Huntstown with a loss. The match was close at half-time with the score 2-1 to the opposition.

The opposition scored two well-placed goals to put the game out of Bohs’ reach. Bohs had been playing a high standard of football with their goal coming from some good passing and movement.

Beginning with the Bohs goalkeeper, they moved the ball throughout the team before a wonderful finish by Jose Antonio Ragia. Ragia had a fantastic game, all while he was being tightly man-marked throughout the game.

Under-15 update

Bohemians under-15s have had a successful pre-season with three victories out of four, and the team have managed to get into double figures on two occasions.

The team’s possession and positional play during these games has been a great positive as the team gets ready for the season to kick-off on Sunday 14 September.

Bohs have kept a core of last year’s team with small additions throughout the squad.

There have been positive displays from Atke Velic, William Howdernarck, and Karl Ormonde. The team play Huntstown Hartstown and will be looking to build on the good start they have had to the season.
