Clonee Utd 7 v 1 Maynooth Town
A lovely day to start a cup run? Well it did turn out that way Clonee Utd set up well with the usual team However by the end of the day there was some new goal scoring heroes. Sean O’Brien started the game in Right Midfield and took an early ball inside and volleyed it into the net from outside the area to register his first goal of the season with some aplomb giving the goalkeeper no chance. Spurred on by this Emeke Ejike got the ball deep from left back position rode a couple of tackles and unleashed a goal from outside the box to show Sean that he could do it as well as he registered his second goal of the season. Clonee United pressed and held positions well dominating possession. Plamedie Bazeyi went down the right and twisted and turned then pulled an excellent ball back across the box where Ryan Edge decided if the other midfielders can do it he could except he side footed it from 10 yards out again giving the keeper and defence no chance. At three nil early the stuffing seemed to have been knocked out of Maynooth as Vlad Kusevych was having little to do in the first half. Plamedie decided to repeat his early trickery and again went down the right and pulled back another beauty. This time it was Danny Ash another midfielder that had heard the coaches say they had to back up the forwards – taking a leaf out of Ryan’s book he also very calmly side footed the ball into the net from outside the box scoring his second of the season. 4-0 at half time and no sign of a goal from the hard working Christian Madden. Jay Jay Bazeyi freshened up attack and was unlucky not to get on some through balls from Toto Okafor who as right back was also commanding and trying his luck from distance.
The second half brought a change of keeper and Maynooth Pressed with a new believe Vlad Kusevych watched as a long shot went close and he himself hit the post – the post was alright however. Ephraim Beike was commanding again in defence but the Maynooth team had a great first ten minutes in the start of the second half and scored a rocket to make it 4-1. This woke up Clonee who realised they had a second half and a match to win. Ian McGrath and Sean O’Brien had some great link up play on the left. Sean Gilmore pushed up into midfield. Danny Ash and Ryan Edge were passing and using the wingers to great affect again a nice interchange allowed Ian McGrath – another midfield winger to cut inside and unleash a shot that rasped the net. His mother was there to see a wonderful goal from her son!
Christian Madden was passing well and went close with his left foot and a header – it looked like he would be the only one not to get on the score sheet? This has only happened on three occasions this year by the way. He then dropped back into the space on the edge of the box and unleashed a lovely drive to make it 6-1. Normal service was resumed when Christian Madden again scored following lovely passing movement from the team to finish up with a brace and make it 7 v 1 and register the team’s biggest win this season.
Well done to all of the team who all made themselves man of the match.
On to the second round.

Quelle journée fantastique et la peine d’attendre!
What a fantastic day but worth the wait.
It started off meeting in the car park for the first game for about 8 weeks and we have 9 players arrive on time Stephen had to make a few phone calls but eventually the Bazeyi boys arrived and we set off for the game. Our goalkeeper Vlad got lost on the way so it delayed the game in malahide Castle grounds. The wind was with us as Sean O’Brien won the toss and decided to play with the wind. Malahide did well but it was all Clonee united in the first half. Danny Ash had a long range shot that almost went in as did Ryan Edge and Emeke Ejike. Then against the run of play Malahide got a corner which was not cleared and the ball bounced over everyone in the box and Clonee went in at half time 1-0 down now having to play against the wind.
The coaches mentioned that the wide players had to get the crosses in low and hard and quickly Plamedie Bazeyi was stronger in the second half as was ian McGrath who linked in well wil Sean O’Brien as they wipped in the crossed. Then a lovely move involving Danny Ash Christian madden and then Plamedie Bazeyi who took the ball on and buried the ball in the net for the equaliser against the wind. Clonee rallied and an over head kick from Christian Madden rippled the net – time to celebrate but alas the referee thought that it hit the bar and did not give a clear goal. Clonee kept going with Ephraim Beieke and Toto Okafor strong at the back Emeke Ejike played very well at right back in the second half looking comfortable. From this strong base Clonee pressed and then a cross from Plamedie allowed Christian Madden to score a great header from 8 yards out? Clonee was in the lead after coming from behind. The team still pressed and managed to see out the game and are unbeaten in 2014 still.
Well done to all of the team who all worked for each other and there was some lovely pass an movement and crosses that the team can all be proud of.
Squad: Kusevych; O’Brien, Beike, Edge,Ash, Madden, Ejike; Okafor, JJ Bazeyi, P Bazeyi, McGrath
Scores: Plamedie Bazeyi, Christian Madden

Christmas Cracker Challenge
Match Report 15th December 2013
Clonee United 6 v 2 Clonee United
A Christmas Cracker Challenge match between the two under 12 teams on Saturday produced some great football from both sides and goals a plenty. 8 goals in total and some great football from both teams before the wind and rain really took hold of the day.
Plamedie Bazeyi managed to bag himself a brace of goals in the absence of Christian the team finally realised that they could score as well with goals from Emeke Ejike, Ryan Edge, Toto Okafor and Ian McGrath. Danny Ash also hit the post! Well done lads it was a close game until the second half when the scores were 3-2. Then pressing and belief took over and the midfielders started to shoot. Well done to both teams and managers Happy Christmas and see you all in the new year!!
Also a penalty Shoot out took place where only 8 managed to score well done to those that kept their head and the goal keepers – the other perhaps practice over the Christmas break?
