Jim McHugh Memorial Tournament (U12 Boys)

posted 9 Sep 2019, 01:56 by Matthew Ryan

The launch of the 2019 Jim McHugh Memorial Under-12 tournament was held in Garrycastle GAA Club recently. This year, 16 teams compete for the Jim McHugh Memorial Cup, Memorial Shield, Memorial Plate and Memorial Trophy. Garrycastle have St Mary's Rotchfordbridge, Moate All whites and The Downs in their group. 

They have already defeated a strong Moate side  by 2-13 to 1-3 on Wednesday evening last. The conditions weren’t great for a good game of football as there was a gale blowing on the evening which Garrycastle played into in the first half. Having said that there was some excellent footballing & tackling skills showed by both sides. Moate went in at halftime a point up after taking full advantage of the wind. The second half was a different story though as our boys capitalised on the conditions  and pulled away with some very good passing and point scoring.This Wednesday we move on to meet our next opponents, Rochfortbridge in the Jim McHugh Tournament.
