FAI Junior Cup
Ayrfield United registered a second successive major Major Sunday scalp to reach the FAI Junior Cup.
The LSL new boys currently ply their trade in Major Sunday 1 and just weeks after beating Kilbarrack United beat another side from the league above them to reach the fifth round of the biggest cup contest in Europe.
Two first half strikes were enough for the Northside outfit to defeat Clondalkin Celtic and Ayr fly into the next round as a result.
The home side started relatively quickly and had a few half chances through Brian Malone and Barry Davies early on.
The deadlock was broken on 25 minutes when Mick Mooney’s clever header from a deep Brian Malone set piece found its way into the net.
Within 10 minutes Ayrfield were two up as Malone found the net. The left footer slipped off the right hand side of the area, opened his body and slid the ball past the keeper into the bottom right hand corner.
The second half was competitive, but Clondalkin Celtic couldn’t find passage back into the tie while the home side had chances via Alsie Ray and Conor Young.
