There will NO JUVENILE TRAINING THE OCTOBER BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND. Sunday November 3rd we will finish with our own Sylvie Mason Football Blitz where we have our annual Parade, Medal Ceremony & Goody Bags. As usual we will be sending out reminder texts the day before. Hope to see you all Sunday Thanks.


We had a great session on Sunday with David, Aidan, Cody and Sean concentrating hard on the opening training session. We then played the U 12 girls and what a contest. Donnchadh, Hugo, Calvin and Ronan played their hearts out against our impressive opponents and made life very difficult for them.

Eamonn, Paddy, Daniel, Rory and Ethan contributed handsomely to our team performance by getting on the ball and tackling fiercely. Darragh, Jack, Aaron, Ciaran and Adrian worked very consistently and broke up a lot of play and allowed us to get some great scores.

The girls played very well but were equal to the challenge and came out on top by the skin of our teeth. It was a great trial for the games to come and would like to thank the U 12 girls, it made us work very hard, we have games coming up so keep an eye on the texts well done to all who participated.
