The latest round of the Westmeath Under-10 league was runoff as a blitz evening in Garrycastle on Tuesday evening. We welcomed teams from Milmore Gaels, Caulry, St. Marys Rochfortbridge and Rosemount. In total, 9 teams were present, with each team playing two matches. 
The Garrycastle squad was very depleted on the evening due to many players being absent on summer holidays, so in order to field two teams as usual, we called up some of our under-8 squad to make their debut at this level. 
The Garrycastle "Red" team played against Caulry and Milmore Gaels. They were victorious against the Caulry team, and lost out narrowly to Milmore Gaels. There were good performances from Diarmaid Murtagh in midfield, and some excellent scores from Jack Allen and Thanh McCay. 
The Garrycastle "Green" team played against the second Caulry team, and St. Marys Rochfortbridge, and even though they never stopped trying, they were unable to match the size and strength of their opponents, losing out in both matches. Impressive performances here from Jazmen Rafiz, and great debut performances from James McHugh and Andrew Henson from our under-8 squad. 
Overall, this was a mixed performance, but given that so many of the under-10 group were unavailable, it was heartening to see the effort put in by those players who attended. 
Squad on the evening:
Cian McCormack, Conor Sheehan, Jack Allen, Matthew Conner, Kealan Ryan-McIntyre, Thanh McCay, Diarmaid Murtagh, Killian Redmond, David Carter, Tom Sheehan, Brian Mulvihill, Tom Daly, Killian Keegan, Nathan Kelly, Nathan Jackson, Anthony Mannion, Jazmen Rafiz, James McHugh, Andrew Henson.
