The Garrycastle Under-10 group made the trip to Milltown on Tuesday night, for the latest round of County Under-10 blitzes. 


Our first match against Kilbeggan/St. Josephs was a fast flowing match, with the Garrycastle team off to a flying start, and they soon took the lead with some excellent points from distance. The defence stood fast when required, and stand-in goalkeeper Jessica Frawley was pin-point accurate in her kickouts, allowing our midfield unit of Killian Keegan, James McHugh and Kacey Mulvihill to pile on the pressure. At the half-time break, Garrycastle were well on top. The second half saw the Kilbeggan/St. Josephs team come back into the match a little more, but the Garrycastle defence, ably led by David Carter and Nathan McKeon, handled everything thrown at them, while up front the attacking options, led by Aaron Keegan and Conor McCormack kept the scoreboard ticking over. Overall, this was a great performance by the Garrycastle team, and they took a deserved win.


In the second match, a physically bigger and stronger Millmore Gaels team started well and soon led by a few points. It took the Garrycastle team a while to settle, but once they settled, they fought back strongly, with some tireless work up front from Fionn McMahon and Van McCay leading the line to rein in the lead by the half-time break.  Brandon Devaney took over goalkeeping duties for the second half, and his kickouts to Anthony Mannion and Dylan Frawley in the centre of the field provided the launchpad for a series of attacks as the Garrycastle team took the lead, and held it to the end of the game.


Overall, two very impressive performances from the squad on duty for the evening.Huge thanks as always to the parents who made the long drive to Milltown, it is always heartening to see such great support on the sidelines.


Squad: Jessica Frawley, Brandon Devaney, Anthony Mannion, Conor McCormack, Nathan McKeon, Kacey Mulvihill, David Carter, Dylan Fawley, Killian Keegan, Fionn McMahon, Aaron Keegan, Van McCay, James McHugh.
