Limavady Youths won their opening game of the season against a well drilled Cookstown side that has been together from u10s. With Limavady gathered up over last 6 weeks and only one friendly together even they didn't expect to collect maximum points but they fully deserved them. A goal in each half win the game. A goal after only 4 minutes when man of the match Harry McLaughlin chased a ball that looked to be going out and his endeavour just kept the ball in play. The opposition sidelines disagreed but Harry did well and centered to his strike partner Matthew Doherty who was bundled over from behind by a silly challenge that left the red no choice but a spot kick. Up stepped keeper and captain Eoghan McLaughlin to calmly slot it in the bottom corner.
Second half and Kyle Millar won the ball on the edge of the box and set half time substitute young Callum Brown from the u16 squad substitute away. Callum with such a graceful stride carried the ball from edge of box to the last third. Then he fed a ball to the right that Harry McLaughlin took in his stride cut inside and fired into the bottom corner to seal the result.
Limavady- Eoghan McLaughlin, Eoin Mackey, Sean McPoyle, Eoin Devine, Scott Hand, Kyle Millar, Ben Faulkner, Ciarnan Higgins, Ronan Johnston, Harry McLaughlin.
