Johnstown under 15s got there season underway with a tricky fixture away to Oldcastle,
The lads started the game on the front foot trying to knock the ball around on a bumpy pitch, deservedly we went ahead thanks to Adam Quinn’s reaction from a mistake, 2 minutes later out of know where Oldcastle equalized from a fine strike from there striker from 20 yards. Qs the half went on Johnstown piled on all the pressure and then got their rewards from a corner. Ronan sent in a superb cross for Adam to smash home from 12 yards , people say lightning doesn’t strike twice but it did 3 minutes later oldcastle had a corner and the ball was smashed home from the edge of the box to make 2.2 halftime.
The second half started the same as the first, 2 teams having a go and against the run of play Oldcastle scored to make 3.2 to the home team. Johnstown then picked up a gear and keep peppering Oldcastle’s goal but to no luck, then a bit of brilliance from Ronan got us a penalty. Adam Quinn stood up to take it to make 3.3 and with that, he got his hat-trick. Johnstown had opportunities to win in the dying minutes but to no avail and in last minute Alex pulled off a save any goalkeeper in the world would be proud of great to eventually get the season underway JFC15 best players Quinn, O’Brien,Symonds,Walsh,Maxwell,
