Last weekend saw another reduced fixture list for Carniny Youth FC with all teams nearing the end of their respective seasons.

The Under 10 Amateurs squad were in fine form again as they racked up ten goals for the second week in a row in their game against an older Dungiven Celtic team.

Their U10 Youth squad counterparts weren’t so lucky although still impressed as they lost out to Coleraine by the odd goal in five.

The Under12s suffered shoot out heartbreak when they lost out in their SBYL semi Final after a penalty shoot out to their runaway league leaders, Andersonstown Celtic.

There were no scheduled National League games last weekend with the Under17s away on a trip to Sunderland AFC (full report next week)


The club are currently welcoming enquiries for Managers for their, U19 and Adult teams. The teams will play NIFL Youth league and Junior level football respectively.

Players, both U19 and Senior are also welcome to make contact.

Anyone interested please send email or contact through the club’s Facebook page.


Carniny Amateurs 10, Dungiven Celtic Colts U10/11 1: This outcome didn’t look likely as Carniny led by only a Sam Magee goal at the break and then conceded an equaliser early in the second half.

But Carniny the cut loose with nine second half goals with Magee going on to complete his hat-trick, with further goals from Leon Graham (2), Anthony Greer (2), Cormac McMullan (2) and Lewis McKee in an outstanding team display.

Carniny: McQuillan, Douglas, Greer, Magee, Graham, McKee, Wylie, McMullan.

Carniny Amateurs 2, Coleraine Alexandra 3: Carniny started this game very well against a blustering wind and took the lead after a great ball from Kenzie McMullan sent Joel Murray free down the left and he fed jack Kennedy who scored from a tight angle.

Carniny then struggled with wind and Coleraine scored three unanswered long distance efforts before the break.

Carniny pulled a goal back from a brilliant individual effort from Cameron Moody but couldn’t find the equaliser.

Carniny: Strange, Murray, Scott, McMullan, Moody, Kennedy, Courtney, White, Tweed
