MATCH REPORT; Derby Quitus 3 Guilford Celtic 0

Celts left dazed and confused as fog closes in.
A bad day at the office after the Celts slump to an awful 3 0 defeat to basement dwellers Derby Quitus. How the Celts lost this game after the opening 20 minutes is hard to fathom but with so many missed chances including a penalty and an opposition strike rate/ratio of 5 shots and 3 goals then i guess that determines a defeat.

MOM?  Johnny B kept motoring but it just wasn't our day

Match Report; Guilford Celtic 0 Greenwich Gunners 1


A 1 nil defeat against a strong and aggressive Gunners team on the face of it is not bad. Although the Celts clearly set themselves up to defend and try not to lose. Great performances by Dustin and David helped to keep the Celts competitive throughout the game. The goal was lost at a set piece and unfortunately the home team never looked likely to score through out the game.

MOM; Goes to both Dustin and David

NEXT GAME; Sunday 11th June vs Greenwich Gunners



Another tough game is on the cards when the Greenwich Gunners visit Bittner park for their 10am game against the Celts. The Gunner actually won Division 1 last year but were relegated because they fielded an underage player. Last week they hammered Guilford Bell curve 8 0. So, no huge expectations on this one but we really should go out and enjoy ourselves and who knows!

Home game, Bittner Park, 10am Kick off!

MATCH REPORT; Guilford Celtic 2 Greenwich Arsenal 5


The Celts lost 5 2, and there is no doubt about that, but this was never a 5 2 game. In fact the Guilford team more than held their own against the league leaders and were a goal up in the first half with only a few minutes left when the Arsenal team equalized.  Maybe a fairer reflection of the half as Dustin and the defense were extremely busy during the game. The midfielders were playing hard with Johnny B and Todd most notable in the first half and the attacking line of Michael, Rob, Ravi and Tano fought hard through the half. The second half was similar to the first but unfortunately Arsenal were ruthless taking advantage of any errors and got 3 more goals before Johnny B slammed in the goal of the game. If the game ended then it would have been disappointing but the ref decided to award a last minute penalty to the visitors to allow them to emphasize their superiority in the game. Still, it didn't feel that the score was a fair reflection of our effort.  A lot to play for in this season!

Man of the Match; Great performance again from Dustin and the defence although the score doesn't provide the evidence for that. The midfielders fought hard throughout the game and it was a toss up between Johnny B and Todd for MOM but i couldn't split them so two winners in this one!
