U8 shine on St Patrick’s weekend

Without any doubt, this was the U8 boys’ best performance of the year.  The lads took on two excellent St Anne’s teams in four hard fought and remarkably close 7-a-side games – games that ebbed towards one team and then the other, culminating in a tied series!

 On the team mentored by Ronan and Adrian, we had some ‘personal best’ performances from Jack, Liam (both of whom were outstanding), Mark (who saved countless shots on goal) and Oscar (a very late call up from the U7’s).  Omar, Zenon and Hugo played their hearts out around the middle of the pitch, and made life very difficult for the opponents.  The blocking, tackling and hand-passing skills that were on show from the whole team were of the highest order.March 2013 b

 On the team mentored by Dom and Albert, we had lots more of the same: we had some tireless performances from Tom, Sam, Ben and Eoin (who all won the ball time after time keeping Geraldine’s on the front foot), while Liam, Ethan, Robbie and Padraig moved the ball with speed and precision that would be at home in Croke Park.

 Well done to all the lads!!
