Killymoon Rangers XI 5
Steelweld XI 2
Friday 26th April 2019
@ Mid Ulster Sports Arena
Killymoon Rangers were delighted to take part in a charity football match on Friday evening against a select team from Steelweld Fabrications in Cookstown. The game was organised with the goal of raising additional proceeds towards Steelweld’s ‘35for35’ fundraising campaign, and specifically two charities very close to their hearts, MacMillan Cancer and Headway Brain Injury Association.
A big thanks to the club staff at Killymoon and also Patrick Crilly from Steelweld who helped organise the friendly match which was a great success. The game was played in great spirits (despite the occasional shower of rain), and was a pleasant way for Killymoon’s new manager Stewart Dobson to be introduced to his squad, and oversee his new team for the first time.
The result on the night was 5-2 to Killymoon. A goal from Stuart Donaghy after five minutes put Killymoon into an early lead, before Steelweld’s own frontman struck back just before half time to make it 1-1. It was a very close first half.
It wasn’t until the 60th minute that Killymoon got themselves back in front, a corner delivery from Dylan Coyle was met by Mark Montague who headed home. Moments later saw the introduction of Jamie Tomelty into the game, the former Linfield player making a cameo appearance in the blue of Killymoon Rangers. Tomelty certainly livened things up and on the 65th minute, and scored Killymoon’s third of the game after a mix-up in the Steelweld defence. He rounded the keeper and tapped home calmly. Later in the game young Killymoon winger Bryan Murray, aged just 17, score Killymoon's fourth goal of the game, again after a corner kick delivery. The young player headed home nicely from close range. Killymoon added a fifth through Richard Donaghy late on, before Steelweld’s big front man Trevor Brownlee pulled one back in the dying minutes for his side. The final score 5-2 Killymoon. However, there were plenty of chances from both sides, and lots of tired legs by the end of the 90 minutes. Many thanks to all the players from both teams for giving up their Friday evening and for their kind donations on the night.
A special thanks also to Christopher Eastwood and the staff at the Dunleath Bar & Bistro for their kind donation and hospitality after the match. A final big thanks to Dominic Crilly and all staff at Steelweld Fabrications for their support on the night and kind donations towards the match & nominated charities. Over £500 raised in total - a great effort by all.
