Under 10

posted 26 Sep 2017, 07:25 by Matthew Ryan

Well done to the under 10s who completed the clean sweep over the weekend when they added two more tournament wins to their tally.  On Saturday they defeated Ballinasloe in the Clan na Gael tournament.  The format of this competition is that under 9s and 10s play two separate matches and the aggregate score decides the winner. Garrycastle  won the under 10 match easily and the under 9s lost theirs by a point. After celebrating that win they headed to Castledaly on Sunday to play the final of their tournament against Maryland Tang and came out victorious by ten points. In addition Garrycastle  player, James McHugh, was voted player of the tournament. More details on these games will follow.

The boys and girls of Garrycastle represented their club and county magnificently once again as they competed in the Rochfortbridge tournament last Saturday the 14th of September. Our under 10’s and under 9’s competed in two separate tournaments and every child delivered with the terrific performances that we have come to expect.

The under 9’s battled extremely hard in the group stages with victories over St. Mary’s Rochfortbridge girls St. Brigids and holding out for a draw against a very strong team from the Downs. The efforts of the boys and girls was good enough for them to progress to the A final where the met a very strong Roscommon Gaels team. Unfortunately this was a fence too far for our lads, however they are to be commended for the terrific display which they put in.

The under 10’s, driven on by the performances of their teammates in the u9’s, again showed their class as they too topped their group with victories over St. Brigid’s, The Downs and Killucan. This lined up an ‘A’ final against a very strong St. Mary’s Rochfortbridge team. This time however, the boys managed to drive on and put in another super display to take home the cup.

Congratulations to all involved in the day, everybody did themselves, their teammates, their coaches and their families extremely proud. Thanks again to our supporters who came along to cheer on the boys and girls.
