MATCH REPORT; Guilford Bell Curve 0 Guilford Celtic 0



The local derby game may have ended in a goalless stalemate but the match was anything but stale. A highly competitive game with chances to win appearing for both teams throughout the 90 minutes. Each side had periods of dominance and certainly the Celtic defense was to the fore when Bell Curve went marauding. Superb tackles by Jim, Tim and Dan kept the Bell Curve hosts at bay and on those occasions they broke through that "thin" green line Dustin was there to save, parry and block! In fact Dustin had another great outing putting his body on the line to make sure nothing breached his goal line. The rest of the team had a solid display although several players picked up injuries through the match because of the rough and tumble aspects of this derby.

A well deserved point, although it could have been 3 but, if it wasn't  for Dustin's heroics, it could have been zero!

MAN OF THE MATCH; Second week in a row for Dustin to pick up the accolades!

Thanks to Ronnie for all the pics!

NEXT GAME; Sunday 21st May; VS Guilford Bell Curve



A huge local derby game this Sunday at Guilford High School as Guilford Celtic take on arch rivals Guilford Bell Curve! These have always been very competitive games and i expect no different this Sunday. The Celts will be looking to bounce back from a poor performance a couple of Sundays ago. Bell Curve have had an indifferent start to their league campaign with only 1 win and 1 draw to their name. Should be a great game so get their early for a good warm up!

Kick off is at 10am at Guilford High School!

MATCH REPORT; Stamford Utd 2 Guilford Celtic 0

A poor disjointed performance by the Division 2 leaders Guilford Celtic saw them fall to a 2 0 defeat to basement dwellers Stamford. Right from the kick off the depleted Guilford squad were out of sorts and although they had one clear chance to take a lead their poor passing got the better of them as Stamford put in a solid performance. Two goals could have been many more if it had not been one of those days when Dustin was in top form. A string of saves kept the Celts in the match when they clearly deserved to be out of it. Nothing more to say other than it was a bad day at the office!

Man Of The Match; A clear winner in Dustin who played out of his skin to keep the goal count down
