Youth footy: Teddy celebrates 2nd successive title success

19 year old flamboyant Celtic midfielder Theodor Elmar Bjarnason celebrated his 2nd successive title yesterday, when the u-19's won Motherwell 1-0 at home. Celtic's midfield powerhouse Simon Ferry scored the goal in the 80 minute which sparked massive celebrations at Hannah Park.

Teddy who is in his second season at Celtic has come on leaps and bounds the past few months and has been praised by the Celtic coaching staff. Its expected that he'll feature regulary for the reserves next season with a first team place fast beckoning.

Here's how a Celtic fan described his performance yesterday:
"Teddy did next to nothing in the first half apart from give the ball away when his deft flicks struck a divot or he was robbed of possession by the fired-up hosts, who were hunting in packs. But in the second half he was well-nigh unstoppable. Drifting in on to his right foot, cutting back on to his left, step-overs, dribbles, crosses, shots, the lot. Eventually Well had to double-team him in an attempt to halt his mazy runs. Big Teddy turned the match and almost scored one of the goals of the season. If he continues to progress at this rate, he could be a SPECIAL player. Got a deserved ovation from the appreciative crowd when he went off in the last minute."
