The Garrycastle under-8 squad played their second county under-8 blitz in Moate on Saturday morning. On the morning, 22 players travelled to the new Moate All-Whites pitch, our numbers reduced somewhat by Confirmations and Communions being held in Athlone.

Two equal teams were created on the day, and each team played three matches, against the hosts, Athlone and Castledaly. Both groups displayed some excellent skills, and it was obvious to all present that this group of players is improving by the day. The matches were all played in an excellent atmosphere, with great support from the assembled parents and other supporters.

Special mention to James McHugh and Dean Grehan, making their first appearance in the green-and-red, sure to be just the first of many in the years to come.

Many thanks to all of the parents and supporters who made the trip to Moate. It is a huge boost and benefit to the players to get such great support from the sideline. And of course, many thanks to all who helped with running the teams on the day.
