Merrion 3 Belgrove 0

MM back to winning ways against Belgrove after a solid performance yesterday afternoon in Claremont AV.

Brendan Markey made sure of MM's third win of the season after opening the score 10 minutes into the game with a well taken shot inside the box after good work and a clever pass behind the back four from Austin Skelly on the left hand side. That meant Merrion were in a driving position from the beginning which gave them the confidence to play some good football.

In the second half Belgrove were pushing high and had more than a couple of chances to score if it wasn't for MM's keeper to stop them. Michael McCann came in for Brendan Lee and after dribbling Belgroves left full McCann crossed for Cullen at the back post which had the easy task of taping the ball in the back of the net. From there on it was all about MM and Timmons added a third in the dying minutes.

Overall it was a good performance with a solid defensive display and the first clean sheet of the season.
