Under 10

The Under-10 group headed to Rosemount for the third round of the County Under-10 league. This round was played in blitz format, so the two Garrycastle teams each played their compatriots from Lilliput Gaels and Maryland/Tang.  In the first round of games, the Garrycastle "Red" team played Maryland/Tang. Playing with the aid of a very strong wind in the first half, the team took control early on but poor shooting cost them dearly as the Maryland/Tang team took their chances to claim a narrow win. In contrast, the Garrycastle "Green" team were much more clinical in front of goal, and had a good win against a game Lilliput Gaels side.


In the second round of matches, the Garrycastle "Green" team continued their good form, with a hard fought win against Maryland/Tang. This was a good team performance, with all players making a good impact. The Garrycastle "Red" team bounced back from their earlier disappointment to register a good win against Lilliput Gaels. Although again guilty of a huge number of wides, they had the lion’s share of possession and made it count on the scoreboard. All-in-all, this was a good evenings outing for the under-10 squad. All players present played their part in four good games of football. Many thanks to Brian and the other mentors in Rosemount for a well-run and enjoyable evening.


Squad: Jack Allen, Tom Sheehan, Brandon Devaney, Rian Gaynor, Calum Hudson, Nathan McKeon, David Carter, Fionn McMahon, Cian Norris, Anthony Mannion, Kealan Ward, Killian Keegan, Dean Grehan, Oisin Mulvihill, Sean O'Donoghue, Conor McCormack, Niadh Shine, Van McCay, Dylan Frawley, Andrew Henson, James McHugh, Aaron Keegan.
