Our U12 Footballers played Ballyhogue last Tuesday 12 July and they came home without the points. The Ballyhogue boys were out of the blocks that Clonard boys conceded with 2 quick goals, our boys were shell shocked. Maybe it was the drive, our guys were flat on their feet or it was like Nicky asked if what county we were in. Anyway the boys got it together and they played brilliant football, Nicky the geography student, stopped bullets in the goal, in front of him was, Cian, Leon, Daragh, Clinton and the surprise package of, Adam who played out of his skin. Our fear of the cluiche is Ryan who contributed 3g 6p from midfield, he was sensational. Rory, Barry, another Daragh, Taofik, who was captain, Cillian and James who gave of their best.

Our thanks to the parents and grandparents, who drove to Bree. I think it is like a social club, people drinking tea and coffee on the sideline. Next time they will probably bring sandwiches and/or cake.

Our next match 19 July is against Taghon/Camross and it is in Coolcotts.

Our get well soon to one of the stars, Barry who broke 2 fingers, in the match, so he will be out for the next 3 – 4 weeks.
