Tyrone defeat Celtic in seven-goal thriller

Tyrone’s Premier team completed their SuperCupNI qualifying campaign with a thrilling 4-3 victory against Celtic at the Coleraine showgrounds this evening.

Twenty four hours after the Juniors fought back to share the spoils with the mighty Manchester United in a 1-1 draw, the Premier boys went one better with a stunning victory.

David Harvey’s Red Hand boys ran riot in the first half with striker Ben Gallagher firing Tyrone ahead after 13 minutes with a close range effort.


Zach Ferson duly doubled the lead shortly afterwards and before the half-time whistle Jamie Robinson headed home from a long throw-in.

Celtic stormed back  after the interval with Adam Montgomery hammering in off the crossbar before Jayden Ferguson made it 3-2 to set-up a grandstand finish from the penalty spot.

A free kick by Eoin Moffitt looked to have earned the Celts a share of the spoils but Tyrone weren’t quite finished as James Convie snatched victory for Tyrone right at the death with deflected shot.

That meant that Harvey’s boys completed their qualifying campaign unbeaten as did the under-15s who earlier this afternoon defeated Colina 1-0.
