U10 Boys:
The U10 boys had a great weekend as we got to play at half time in the senior game and got to show off our skills to the crowd.

The lads put on a great performance with Mark, Brogan, Will, James and Oisin getting well involved and making big contributions. Gerard, Robert, Adam, Jack, Pascal and Jim showed great tenacity and skill. Those in the crowd were impressed with everyone that played and will be keeping an eye on them for the future. Well done to all the players.

On Sunday we trained and did a lot of work on our weaker leg and hand and by the end we could see a great improvement in everyone. The game at the end was very competitive and we would like to wish the Community Games team all the best.
