On Saturday, it was Garrycastle's turn to host the latest Under-8 County organised football blitz. Besides the home team, we also had teams from Maryland/Tang, Millmore Gaels, Moate All-Whites and Tubberclair attend. With good numbers in attendance, Garrycastle were able to field 2 teams on the morning. As is the norm for these blitzes, each team plays two matches, against different opposition, and all players get to play.

In the first round of matches, the first Garrycastle team played a spirited draw against Maryland/Tang, while the second Garrycastle team came up just short against a very strong Moate All-Whites outfit. In the second round of matches, the first Garrycastle team proved too strong for Millmore Gaels, while the second Garrycastle team played out an entertaining drawn match against Tubberclair. 

There was some great football on display from both teams, with some excellent scores, fit to grace any football field. In defense, the Garrycastle lads played with huge effort and enthusiasm. All in all, this was an excellent morning's football from some of the clubs youngest players.
