Gweedore Celtic 3 Cappry Rovers 1
This match was played at the Screaban in blustery conditions. The Celts started brightest and took the lead through Tommy Diver when he nodded home a long throw in from Odhran MacNiallais. MacNiallais was again the provider on 40 minutes when he threaded a ball through to Colin Ferry who doubled the advantage. Cappry had a man sent off late in the first half however they started to crank up the pressure on the Screaban men in the second half and were unlucky not to pull one back after Christopher Sweeney pulled off a great save from a spot kick. Shortly after they reduced the deficit when Ronan McHugh finished after being put through on goal. Late on in the game the Screaban men secured the points when Tommy Diver scored his second when he volleyed into the top corner from well outside the area to make it 3-1. The Celts held on for the win as Rovers lost their first game of the season.

Cappry Rovers 2 – 2 Glenea United
It was all go from the moment the whistle blew at Cappry Park. Benji O’Meara’s home side knew they had a tough challenge ahead against the league leaders, Glenea. Cappry got the game off to a good start, putting plenty of pressure on the visitors and holding off any challenges to break through their back line. On the 22nd minute, Cappry left back, Darren Bonner took a free kick given outside the left of Glenea’s box and nailed it straight into the back of the net. In the final 15 minutes of the first half, Glenea came back into the game, dominating possession and with 5 minutes until the break, managed to get a shot away passed the keeper to level the score line. Both teams equally shared possession and chances. Conor and Shane Laverty controlled the midfield well while NP McDaid dazzled the opponents every time he possessed the ball. Cappry kept the pressure on and it paid off on the 60th minute when winger, Shaun Bannigan put the home team ahead again with a right footed shot inside the Glenea penalty area to make it 2-1. Glenea came back fighting and in the 64th minute were denied a goal thanks to a brilliant save from Cappry goalkeeper, Bari Duncan. The game continued with end to end action and on the 83rd minute, Glenea found the back of the net for the 2nd time to equalise the score line and see out the game. A very entertaining game with both teams putting in excellent performances.

Lagan Harps 2 Cappry Rovers 1
Jack O’Donnell and Jack Parke netted the goals for Glenn Gallagher’s side in an entertaining game at The Moss, with a late goal by Kane McGlynn coming too late to enable Cappry mount a comeback. O’Donnell’s opener, in the 19th minute was all that stood between the teams until Parke headed home in the dying moments. O’Donnell’s was a brilliant strike, conjured all by himself and finished wonderfully from the edge of the box, right into Cian Gallen’s bottom corner. O’Donnell was the provider for the second goal, scored two minutes from the end by the equally-excellent Parke, who headed home in style to seal Lagan’s passage into the final. They were made sweat a little when McGlynn drilled past Oisin Bonner from 20 yards, but with four minutes of added time gone at that point, Cappry had run out of time. It was Jamie Doherty’s men who had looked the more likely in the early exchanges. Alex McGeehan had tried an ambitious effort from long-range that didn’t trouble the Lagan goalkeeper Bonner. When Bonner let a cross from Evan McBride slip through his clutches, Cappry couldn’t pounce and, late in the half, it took a brave block by Lagan’s Dylan O’Brien to keep out a shot from McGlynn. By then, though, Lagan had hit the front thanks to O’Donnell’s brilliant strike. Caoimhin Wheeler warmed the hands of Cappry net minder Gallen and Gallen had to be on guard to turn over a shot by Parke with the tips of his fingers. With Parke coming into the game, Lagan got a foothold, but Cappry always looked threatening and Bonner held onto a powerful drive from Joel Bradley-Walsh. Lagan began the brighter in the second half, but with Gallen on form Cappry stayed in with a chance. Saul Miller-Kelly tapped wide of a gaping goal after O’Donnell was denied and Parke fizzled over with an enterprising effort from 30 yards. As Cappry turned the screw in search of McGlynn did have the ball in the net, but he was called offside. Bonner denied Cappry again when Bradley-Walsh and Conor Doherty worked a short corner routine, but Parke made them pay when he converted the second goal that, finally, put the contest beyond Cappry’s reach.

Cappry welcomed Newell Academy FC, Derry to Cappry Park on Saturday to play a friendly as they continue their preparations for an Ulster Final. They played 9 a side in the 1st half and 11 a side in the 2nd half. Although Cappry ran out 4-0 winners, the score line doesn’t truly reflect the game. Newell Academy are a quality team and showed their class for long periods of the game. The way they could maintain possession was a joy to watch and hopefully something that Cappry can aspire to. Mark Mbuli got Cappry off to a flier when he scored the opening goal in the 1st minute. Both sides created chances after this but it wasn’t until late in the 1st half when Luke McGlynn got Capprys 2nd. At the end of the 9 a side, Cappry were winning 2-0. The 2nd half seen the game move to 11 a side and playing full pitch. It was then that Newell Academy showed their true class with young Oisin Gallagher standing out for the visitors. The Cappry lads defended well and grabbed 2 more goals through Mark Mbuli and Kevin McCormack.
The management would like to extend their thanks to Newell Academy for travelling to Cappry for what was a very entertaining and competitive game.
