Austin StacksPEIL FAOI 6/8/10:

No football on Sunday morning because of the Lee Strand Tournament. (ii) Under 6/8/10 football will take place as usual at 5:45pm on Thursday.


Our Under 12Bs are back to winning ways after two heavy defeats to Ballymac and Laune Rangers. Though this team is made up primarily of 11 year-olds, we came out on top in a hard fought match i gcoinne na Gaeltachta last Monday evening. Ben Quilter, having one of his best games in goal, was kept very busy. A goal from Johnny Feeley and a goal on the stroke of half time by Donnacha Fox had us leading…3-6 to 2-7…at the break.

Another goal from Evan Foley, midway through the second half, brought this tally to a ‘game high’ of 2-4. Strong defending throughout from Brian McElligott and two fine points late in the game from Joe Reidy clinched victory. Full time score: 4-10 to 3-9. We hosted two Legion teams on Friday last and we had two very enjoyable high tempo games. Our other Under 12 warriors engaged in an enthralling encounter in Connolly Park v An Ghaeltacht.

We played some of the best football of our season to date. In a match that exhibited all that’s best in Gaelic football, our boys displayed their full repertoire of skills and emerged with a fine victory…4-11 to 4-10. Scorers: James Fernane (2-2), Cian Purcell (1-4), Conor Horan (1-0), Greg Scanlon (0-2), Shane Bastible (0-1), Armin Heinrich (0-1) and Joey Nagle (0-1). (iv)We played against our friends from Cillín, Na Gaeil, on Monday 8th September.
