Video: Paddy McCourt Scores His First Celtic Goal, On This Day 2009

Paddy McCourt was a genius. You don’t called the Derry Pele for nothing, but the first time he ever bequeathed the Celtic support with his talents was during a 4-0 cup win against Falkirk, on this day in 2009.

On that occasion, McCourt went past three defenders before chipping the goalkeeper under challenge. It was the first, of what was to become a trademark, McCourt wonder goal.

About Author

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic as a young child during the Martin O'Neill era. Still living on the south coast, I have a season ticket at Paradise and also travel to European away matches when possible. At the age of 19, I published my first Celtic book (Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support). Then, last year, I published my second book (Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events), which is sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores.
