Goalkeeper Meave Kenny, Aoibheann Rankin, Tara Cullen, Ashling Roche and Sinéad Cullen. It's a fantastic achievement for the five girls to make this squad and we're sure the girls would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who have played a part in their development to date. Well done, girls.

Split-the-pot draw results as follows. November 19 winning €440 goes to Celine/Eoghan and Paul. November 12 Prize winning €226 goes to Laura Doyle. Apologies for the delay in posting the results. Your support is greatly appreciated. All proceeds go towards the All Blacks AFC 2020 development fund.

All Blacks under-12 Div2B girls welcomed St Leonards to Casey Park for their fourth game of the season. Although on top of the league with three wins from three games this was a must win match for the girls to keep their title hopes alive. After a rocky start the girls went 1-0 up through a Rebecca Cloney goal. St Leonards battled hard to get the equalizer before half time but our girls were excellent in defense and at half time it was 1-0 to the All Blacks. After a few changes to the team at half time the girls went out and started the second half strong and continued to pile on the pressure with goals coming from Tara Devereux, Rachel Nacey, Rebecca Cloney and an outstanding free kick from Ava Newport saw the girls finish the game 5-0. A solid performance by all 12 girls but a special mention for Jenna Ryan, who made four vital saves in the second half to keep St Leonards scoreless. Best wishes to Aveen Ellard, who was injured and couldn't play and to Rachel Nacey, who went off injured. Keep up the good work girls it's really paying off now and thanks for all the support on the sideline.
