Garrycastle under 16s recorded two good league wins in recent weeks against Northern Gaels and Inny Gaels, two combination teams.

Garrycastle v Northern Gaels

Garrycastle got their league campaign up and running with a good win over Northern Gaels. After a start in which we conceded two goals Garrycastle tightened things up and went on to play some super football for the remainder of the game. The midfield pairing of Daniel McManus and Dylan Keegan gave us a strong platform to build attacks with both Andrew Monaghan and Darragh Kenna combining excellently with the younger forwards.  Garrycastle ran out comfortable winners in the end.

Inny Gaels v Garrycastle

Garrycastle made the journey to Bunbrosna on Monday evening and ran out comfortable winners. Again the lads played some excellent football moving the ball quickly into the forwards where the excellent Shane Coffey led the way with some great finishing and he was ably assisted by Tommy Devery (2 great goals) ,Ryan Cornally and Andrew Monaghan.

The second half saw Garrycastle notch up some great scores and with the defence superbly marshalled by Daniel Guinan and Diarmuid Carey combined with an excellent Eric Rogers penalty save, the opposition found it hard to work scores.

Garrycastle have made a strong start to the league and will hope to build on this in the next few weeks. The team will play a number of challenges in the next few weeks and with the excellent Anthony Cunningham offering guidance and assistance we are sure to see this team improve even further

Team v Inny Gaels: Eric Rogers, Cian Dowling, Daniel Guinan, Cathal Redmond, Dermot Carey, Tommy Stephens, Daniel McManus, Dylan Keegan, Ryan Cornally, Andrew Monaghan, Nathan Breslin, Shane Coffey, Samuil Sharma.
