History

Originally, Foyle Rovers was formed in 1904, and there first match was against a Bredaghglen team, Moville lost the match 1-0. Foyle Rovers initially wore red and black stripes back then, they only converted to the hoops or anything green when they changed their name to Moville Celtic in the 1920’s. Moville Celtic joined the D&D soon after that with a certain degree of success. The closest they came to the Premier title was when they lost a play off. Their best run of results came circa ’76-’77 when they won 7 trophies in the one year Moville’s home pitch was at the Bayfield up until the summer of 2008. There are many stories to be heard from players {Old and young} who have many fond memories of matches at the Bayfield. In the 2006-2007 Season, the Team commenced playing their home games at the new Glencrow Ground. It has to be said that it is one of the best pitches in Inishowen, even Donegal In more recent years, back in the 1997-98 season, a Moville Celtic team {managed by Joe Bredin & Danny McDermott}won 4 trophies, Trophies won that year were: The Premier League, Fruit of the Loom Cup, Bertie O’Neill Cup and the Carndonagh Summer Cup. The 07/08 Season, the Moville Celtic Senior Team won the League Cup, defeating a Redcastle Team in the Final at Greencastle’s Ground, the score was 1-0, Nigel Mc Monagle with the Winner in Injury Time. This was a Historic Year for Moville Celtic & John Canning (the Manager), when the senior Team won the only trophy in Donegal/Ulster competition that has never been won by a Moville Team. A 2-1 victory against Redcastle Utd. at Maginn Park was very well deserved on the night, with Nigel McMonagle scoring the first and then Richie Mc Elhinney scoring the Winner! In that same 2008/09 season, the Moville Reserve Team (managed by Eunan Mc Daid) won the Treble in fantastic style.

Moville Celtic                     5

Two defensive lapses early in the second half contributed greatly to  preventing Aileach from causing an upset. Aileach had a great chance on 5 minutes when Benny Hegarty released Eamon Brown on the left and his cross found the unmarked Stephen Doherty who headed wide from six yards. Moville suffered a blow then when captain Carlie Gill had to retire injured. Moville gradually found their feet and on 15 minutes Finn Mclaughlin fired over after Nathan Harkin had set him up. Midway through the half Caolan Doherty had a curling effort from the right had edge of the box come off the bar and post before being cleared while Harkin had a curling effort saved by Ciaran Bradley. Michael McNaught then turned and twisted inside the area but his effort was blocked behind by Damien Barr and Conor Doherty headed wide from the corner. Aileach responded with a James Wallace free saved by Ryan Coyle before Paddy Curran latched onto a poor back pass but Coyle blocked his effort. Aileach suffered a blow on the stroke of half time when they lost their captain Damien Barr through injury. Moville had the first chance of the second half on 55 minutes when a long clearance from Coyle sent Harkin clear but Bradley spread himself to block well. The great work by Conor Doherty took him into the area where his effort was blocked by Bradley and Caolan Doherty ‘s follow up clipped the outside of the post. They broke the deadlock when Shane Canning threaded a superb pass into the inside right channel for McNaught to finish superbly past Bradley. But Aielach equalised immediately when a Shane McMonagle cross broke to Benny Hegarty who fired to the roof of the net. But Moville regained the lead within a minute after Harkin sized on a poor defensive header to lift the ball past Bradley from ten yards. Minutes later a long range free  by Canning evaded  Bradley and landed in the net and there was really no way back for the Aileach men. Another long clearance from Coyle sent McNaught clear and he unselfishly squared to Caolan Doherty to tap home. Aileach defende Brown then averted a certain goal with a timely intercept before Moville completed the scoring when McNaught dribbled in along the end line and from an acute angle fired home.
