On Monday night our U-12 team had a great win over
Arklow Rock Parnells. Although they were behind at half-time, an inspiring
half time speech from manager Bosco made sure that they came back very strongly
to come out worthy winners. There were some great blocks from the backs to deny
the Arklow forwards. Well done to Fionn Mac Lochlainn on his goal mid-way
through the second half.
On Wednesday night our U-14s travelled to Aughrim to meet Arklow Rock Parnells again, this time in the Shield Final. It is fair to say that to a man they played their hearts out from beginning to end and were deserving winners. It is hard to pick out a man of the match; Rory O’Kelly, Dean O’Gorman and Aaron Meade were just some of the contenders that spring to mind. Reece Devlin played an excellent role in the goals with Robin Keogh, just back from injury, showing great potential. But it was hard to argue with the choice of Ryan Devlin, captain on the night, as the ultimate winner of the man of the match. Well done lads and well done to Bosco O’Neill, Noel Geraghty and Niall MacLochlainn for all their work with this team during the year. Remembering that a lot of this U-14 team are actually U-12 – the future looks bright for hurling in Glenealy.
As Scrap Saturday was a great success and we filled the container two hours earlier than anticipated, we have decided to run another one in mid-October.
