Summer signing scores again as Celtic B get back to winning ways in dramatic match
Celtic summer signing Joey Dawson scored in his second successive game as the B team won 4-2 in the Scottish Lowland Football League this afternoon.
After a defeat to Spartans last time out, Tommy McIntyre’s side were looking for three points at home to Broomhill FC this afternoon.
The side wasn’t at full strength with a number of young players off to represent their countries on international duty, but recognised performers such as Owen Moffat did take their place in the starting line-up.
There was a first start of the season for midfielder Frankie Deane and he didn’t take long to announce himself, netting 17 minutes into the match.
The Young Hoops doubled their advantage 14 minutes later when Dawson, who arrived from Scunthorpe during the last transfer window, headed home from a Moffat free-kick.
Broomhill did show their teeth at times in the first half and after the interval came out with real intent to get themselves back into the fixture. Findlay Gray and Justin Devenny were the players on the scoresheet for the away side as they managed to peg the game back to 2-2.
However, Celtic’s resilience and quality showed. Daniel Kelly and Dawson combined in the final third to open up an opportunity for Ben Summers, who earned hero status a third goal before immediately being substituted off.
The Bhoys then made the three points secure with a goal just two minutes from time, with the goal attributed to substitute Daniel Kelly by the official club Twitter account.
Coaches McIntyre and Darren O’Dea have stressed the importance of individual improvement over team results in recent weeks, but finding these victories is always pleasing.
The Celts still have a chance to make a push towards the top of the table and winning their home fixtures will be crucial in that regard.
Their next Lowland League match comes on 27th November away to Caledonian Braves. Before that though is a Glasgow Cup encounter against Clyde a week on Tuesday.
