Playing at home in Stepaside on a bright but windy afternoon, the panel of 20 players worked hard throughout the game to come through very worthy winners 8 7 to 2 1.

Ballyboden had some very big players so we didn’t have it all our own way, but speed and footballing ability won out in the end. Some great individual battling performances on show… We are really looking forward to getting through the grading league and onto tougher competition to really test how good the panel is.

Well done to all the boys and thanks to the parents for such great support.

See you all at training Monday night and for those who can make it, Wednesday evening for strength and flexibility work.
