Sunday 12th December Charleville AFC 3-1 Cappamore

Scorers: Gary Ward, Darren Casey, and Luke Doyle

Charleville started the game slowly and struggled for large periods to get their passing game going and it was no surprise when Cappamore took the lead on 16 minutes with a fine header past goalkeeper David O’Riordan. However, it wasn’t long before Charleville were back on level terms, as Cian McNamara won the ball on the edge of the Cappamore area he released Luke Doyle who finished well into the far corner. Just before half time Charleville got themselves in front when captain Gary Ward finished from close range after good work by Shane Dillon.

The 2nd half was a tight battle and it wasn’t until the 75th minute before Charleville secured the win with a fine strike from Darren Casey. This result saw Charleville move to the top of the table going in to the Christmas break.
