Tommy McIntyre’s Celtic B team got back to winning ways with a 2-0 victory in the Scottish Lowland Football League this afternoon.

After a disappointing draw at home to Cumbernauld Colts last time out, the task today away to Berwick Rangers was a crucial one and the young Bhoys didn’t disappoint.

Owen Moffat opened the scoring with a close-range strike in the 19th minute after reacting quickly to a defensive mix up.

It’s great to see the 19-year-old get back on the scoresheet. He was one to watch for the Young Hoops in the early stages of the season, playing and netting consistently when not injured and scoring some highlight-reel goals that really captured the attention of the Celtic support.

Then, 14 minutes later, it was Kenzie Carse’s turn to capitalise in the box. He finished smartly after Adam Brooks threatened the home side with a blocked effort on goal.

Tobi Oluwayemi also played a crucial role after his cameo on the Celtic bench away to Ferencvaros on Thursday night. In the second half, on 70 minutes, he made two saves to prevent late pressure from Berwick.

With coach Darren O’Dea praising his progress this week, the England youth international is another name to take note of.

Celtic B are still chasing a number of teams above them in the league table, but hold games in hand on them all. There’s still hope that McIntyre’s team can make a big push towards the top of the tree. Solid away wins like this one won’t hurt at all.
