Our U-14s will contest the final of this year’s county league division 2 when they will take on Fossa in Ballymacelligott on Weds night next ( 23rd) where throw in is @19.00
This team has been playing some great football all year under the watchful eyes of bainisteoir Barry O’Shea and selectors Ger O’Brien and Shane Flavin.
They topped their group in the league stages, gaining 8 points from a possible 10 shooting a total of 19-46 in the process – ironically, the only game they lost was to Fossa, the opener in Strand Road on a score line of 0-09 to 0-04 in late March. Since then, they have been improving steadily, are also in the final of the Coiste Trá Lí where they will play Austin Stacks ( due to be played on Thursday 24th next in Na Gaeil @ 19.00) and have already picked up some silverware when winning our own Donal Walsh Livelife Memorial tournament on May bank holiday weekend. This promises to be a cracking game and one not be to be missed if at all possible.
