A massive well done to our U12 girls who took part in the annual Margaret King Hospice tournament in Burren on Saturday and won the shield competition.
The girls played a total of five group games, winning three of them and losing two which saw them progress to the quarter-final of the shield competition. In this game they were paired against Rostrevor and played some great football to see them to the semi-final stage and game against a strong St Brigid’s side. Once again, the young Shane’s battled hard to earn their place in the final of the shield where they faced a very good Silverbridge side. The final produced some excellent football from both sides but the Shane’s saved their best display until last and they produced some of their best football of the day to claim the win and along with it the shield title – well done to all the girls and their management team on a brilliant win.
The club would like to thank Donna Murdock and St Mary’s Burren for the invite and very enjoyable days football.
Training for the U12 girls continues on Tuesday and Thursday evening at 7.00pm.
The U16 girls have a home game on Monday evening against Killeavy at 6.45pm.
Our U10s travelled to Silverbridge on Wednesday evening and fielded two smaller sided teams. All the kids played some strong, skilful football and we would like to thank Silverbridge for their hospitality.
