Under 10

The Garrycastle under-10 squad made the short trip to Castledaly for the latest round of this year’s County Under-10 league blitzes. On a fine evening for football, we had a good turnout of players, which allowed us to field two teams, matched up against Milltownpass and St. Mary's Rochfortbridge.

In the first round of matches, the Garrycastle teams played their counterparts from St. Marys. The Garrycastle "red" team got off to a good start and soon had a few scores on the board. However, poor shooting in front of the posts kept the score down, and a less wasteful St. Marys team had the scores back to level at the break. The second half followed a similar pattern, with Garrycastle having the lion’s share of possession and scoring opportunities, but not getting the scores to reflect it. However, they had enough of a lead to run out comfortable winners in the end. The Garrycastle "green" team also played their counterparts from St. Marys, and a very evenly matched game saw the lead change hands on multiple occasions. There was very little between the teams, until the last couple of minutes when two quick scores from St. Marys were the difference on the final score. The Garrycastle team worked hard in this match and can consider themselves a little unlucky not to get a result.

In the second round of matches, Garrycastle played Milltownpass. The "red" team continued their good performance from the earlier game with a comfortable win, in which some of the younger players showed off their skills. The "green" team bounced back from their earlier disappointment to also win out in their match.

Squad: Rian Gaynor, Andrew Henson, Calum Hudson, Aaron Keegan, Van McCay, Conor McCormack, James McHugh, Fionn McMahon, Oisin Mulvihill, Cian Norris, Niadh Shine, Christian Turean, Keelan Ward, Peter Lyster, Kacey Mulvihill, Jack Allen, David Carter, Brandon Devaney, Dean Greham, Killian Keegan, Anthony Mannion, Nathan McKeon, Tom Sheehan.
