Villa U15’s delighted with their remarkable season.

Dylan Butler and Ivan Homoski hit two goals apiece as Villa ran out comfortable winners over Tramore in Graun Park on Thursday evening and clinched the U15 A league title.
It has proved to be an amazing season for the team as they have now completed the treble by winning the U15A league and cup and the U15 Regional Cup earlier in the season. Manager Tosh Cleary and his assistant Larry Donovan have a team to be proud of.
Villa needed to take all three points from this game to win the league and they set about Tramore from the opening whistle.
On six minutes Villa put a cracking move together that gave them an early lead. Ivan Homoski played clever one two with Noah Aimiuhi that let Hoomoki clear but his first time effort came crashing back off the crossbar.
However Villa striker Dylan Butler was alive to the rebound and he fired the ball past Tramore goalkeeper Jake Ramsey.
Tramore striker Tony Kelly who gave the Villa defence a plenty of trouble all night, tried his look from long range but Villa keeper Josh Kelly plucked the ball from under the crossbar. Back came Villa and on 17 minutes Tega Agberhiere cut past two Tramore defenders and hammered a right foot shot against the bar with Ramsey beaten. The Tramore keeper was a busy lad as he saved well from Dara Power and Dylan Butler. Tramore on a rare first half attack got behind the Villa defence but Tony Kelly shot across the face of goal from a tight angle. Just before half time Villa went two in front. Dara Power played a delightful pass into the run of Ivan Homoski who took a touch before planting the ball past the advancing Ramsey.
Tramore came within a whisker of pulling a goal back two minutes into the second half. Adam Butler was pulled down just outside the box and up stepped Tony Kelly to strike a spectacular free kick against the bar with Villa keeper Josh Kelly well beaten.
Villa heeded the warning and on 46 minutes they scored again to go three goals in front. Villa strikers Homoski and Aimiuhi linked up again before the ball fell kindly to Tega Agherihere and he thumped a 20 yard effort into the left hand corner.
On 48 minutes Tramore stayed in the contest with a wonderful goal from Tony Kelly. A long goal kick from Jake Ramsey found Kelly with his back to goal but his quick turn left him with a sight of goal and he scored with a powerful left foot shot into the far corner.
Villa continued to attack and Timi Sobowale found room on the edge of the box but Tramore centre back Dean Larkin blocked his goal bound shot.
Rory Furlong was next to try his luck as Villa finished strong but Ramsey saved well at his near post.
Dylan Butler was next to test the Tramore net minder but Ramsey against got down to save. The Villa pressure had to lead to another goal and on 68 minutes they found the net with a fourth goal.
Rory Furlong played the ball behind the Tramore defence and Dylan Butler raced onto the pass score with a right foot shot into the far corner. That goal brought the curtain down on a remarkable season for the outfit from Connors Park.
