After a few weeks of training behind them our U16s kick off this season with a home game in the County League against Beaufort in Ballyseedy on Thursday April 6th at 6.30 pm.

Our under 14’s opened up their County League with a home game against Ballyduff on Wednesday evening .
We played with the breeze in the first half and helped by a Dean Farrell goal and some superb points from play from Dara Caplis we went in at half time leading by 1-6 to 1-4.

We really upped our game in the second half and with Darragh McEvoy and Ciaran White commanding at the back we kicked on with a hat trick from David (Tiny) Callaghan and another one from Darragh Cunnane. Final score was 5-8 to 2-10.

This was a great team performance with all the panel getting a run out on the night. Best on the night were Darragh McEvoy , Dara Caplis, Martin Laucher and Conor Kerins.

John Mitchels U8 Boys and Girls had another great outdoor session on Sunday last practicing skills and having a good laugh with some fun and games as well. Training continues next Sunday 10.00 am Sharp to 11.00am ALL WELCOME!!

We had a great attendance on Sunday for our training session. Conor, Mark, Cody, Enda and Cathal showed up well on time and got in some great extra kicking practice and performed very well at the drills. Alannah, Aoife, Caoimhe, Nadal and Joey put in a good effort and made great progress with their ball skills. Oisin, Tadhg, Jack, Kalvin and Adam showed good improvement and will be fine players.

William, Luke, Nathan, Killian and Fionnan progressed well in the skills. All the rest of the squad gave great commitment and it looks that quite a number of them have been doing some work at home, it really shows that they will become great players and team mates. Well done to all the players and see you next Sunday.
