Thomastown U12’s went down to a narrow 2-0 defeat to Dean Celtic at United Park on Saturday. With the defence expertly marshalled by Matthew Walpole and Shane Fennelly, United held firm until a screamer just before half time gave Dean Celtic the lead. Led by the impressive Odhran McGorry in midfield, ably by supported Pablo Mercado and Dylan Minogue, United took the fight to Dean Celtic, but were unable to find the net. Just before the final whistle, Dean Celtic scored again to give them a 2-0 win in what was a very closely contested game. Man of the match for United was Aaron Cullen, who put in a storming performance at left back.
