ALL BLACKS FC
Our U-10 boys began their season with an eagerly awaited derby against Kilmore Utd. The Blacks took the lead through a James Cleary strike. After Kilmore drew level a determined All Blacks team pulled the winner from the bag with Lee Redmond slotting home to bring a very entertaining game to a close. Well done to both teams. Training for U-12 boys tonight at 6:30pm.
Beautiful sunny conditions were ideal for soccer. Our U10's got the ball rolling this weekend and although they made a valiant effort, they were very unfortunate to lose 2-1 to neighbours the All Blacks. On target for the U10's was Fionn Byrne with a screamer of a shot from the right hand wing.
As part of the Big Barn Field Day our U8's were invited up to play. Both U8 teams were in prolific goal scoring form with no fewer than 12 of them hitting the back of the net, the goal scorers were - Conor Roche, Danny Roche, Brad Koolhof, Ollie Pierce, Ryan Carroll, Ryan Millar-Sinnott, Cody McGee, Dion Hogan, Fiachra Bolger-Furlong, Liam Fenlon, Sean Maddock and Jude Bates.
The U14's hit 7 at home to St Cormacs - Thomas Byrne, Danny Culleton, Martin Kelly, Ryan Bates and Jake Furlong all in the goals. Our Youths came out 3-2 on top against Adamstown - Colm Sinnott with 2 and Chris Moore with the other score.
The men will be disappointed with their 1-1 draw at home to Cloughbawn. Damien O'Leary scored when in general things were not going according to plan in front of goal.
The reserves easily accounted for Ballymurn - Finbarr O'Flaherty, Shane Cassidy, Devin Furlnog & 'Stormin' Norman Sinnott hitting the net.
Due to retirements, defections, study leave and injuries our ladies barely managed to field a team. Although they went down 4-0 to Killenagh, the young team can be happy enough wih their efforts.
