There was a reduced fixture list for the club last weekend with small sided games still on Easter breaks and some leagues completed. The Under 14s had the opportunity to play their South Belfast Youth League Cup Final at Seaview in atrocious condition on Saturday afternoon. The Carniny boys came up against unbeaten Premier Div league champions Shankill Utd in the final and despite a gutsy performance the Belfast boys ran out winners on the day. Carniny keeper Luke Elliott was awarded Man of the Match for the final. The U15s having clinched their league title last week played out their remaining league fixture in an entertaining 2-2 draw with Bangor side Castle Juniors. The U11s played in the East Antrim Games Dev centre at the Valley on Friday night whilst two Under 10 teams enjoyed their end of season Competition day in Coleraine in the Harry Gregg Foundation Youth League. The seniors came out on top with a 4-3 win over Abbeyview whilst the Development team game was called off due to waterlogged pitch.
