Tommy Clements Cup
After a few weeks of turmoil it’s back to business as usual for Premier A Champions Sheriff YC.
The FAI Junior Cup winners spent a week without a manager as Alan Reilly left, but returned within seven days and his temporary departure doesn’t seem to have had any negative baring regarding on field matters.
Sheriff have now scored 11 goals in two games and banked six points in three days as they bid to retain their Tommy Clements crown.
The serial winners saw of a spirited to McKelvey Celtic to remain top of group C in the biggest of pre season tournaments.
Celtic managed to keep Sheriff at bay for the opening 45 and kept the game scoreless in the first half.
Cian Byrne finally opened the scoring in the AUL hosted game as Sheriff stole in front, but McKelvey hit back and leveled not long after.
Midfielder John Lester then put Sheriff back in pole converting from the peno spot before defender Anto Kavanagh added some gloss to the score board.
