St Mochta's v Broadford Rovers

11am  19 October 2014

Leinster Senior League, Senior Division One
St Mochta's 2 Broadford Rovers 0 (att 55)

First part of a Sunday double in the Leinster Senior League, and these two sides did well to put on a decent display in very windy conditions.

The home side always had the edge, and won the game thanks to a first half penalty and a second goal in second half stoppage time.

We even had a brief, and speedy, pitch invasion ... by a hare.

St Mochta's are one of a seemingly endless number of clubs in the Dublin suburbs that have decent set-ups with an emphasis on providing football for youngsters.

Their senior side now plays in the Leinster Senior League's second tier, and use a fully railed off pitch at their Clonsilla base.

There's a grass bank along one side, plenty of car parking, and club buildings, including a snack bar, behind the goal nearest the entrance. The club's under 18s side were playing on a second pitch, also railed off and parallel to the main one.
