Club Notes


Our Senior ladies had a busy week with a very good challenge game against Ballymac last Thursday night under lights in Mitchel's.
Played in windy conditions but dry conditions we started well and enjoyed good possession and scores
it was an even game with our girls coming out on top by a few points. Thanks to Ballymac for the challenge.

Our senior ladies also travelled back to the Comhortas Paudi O'Sé tournament last Saturday
We travelled with a very youthful team and played a very strong Tirconnell Gaels in the first game at a wind-swept Gallarus making playing conditions extremely
challenging. Tirconnell played with the gale force wind in the first half and despite heroic defending by our backs we went in at half time
down by 12 points. In the second half we piled on the pressure to reduce the lead to 4 points but with our all-out attack Tirconnell turned
over a ball and hit us with a killer goal to finish the game with a loss.
We now had to play St Manmanns from Laois in the shield semi-final. the game was delayed by nearly an hour and the weather conditions had deteriorated to gale force wind and rain making this game a lottery. Mitchel's lost the toss and played into the wind with fantastic effort
scoring 2 points but St Manmans with the gale hit us for 2-2 leaving us trail at half time. With the wind in the second half we put in a mighty effort to bring the game back to a 2point deficit but try as we did, we hit the crossbar, post but couldn't force the winner eventually losing by 2 points. We want to congratulate the players who gave unreal commitment in terrible conditions. This was a great learning experience for our youth full team well done to all. Panel Jane Carmody, Tanya O'Connor, Lisa Costello, Emma Carmody, Ashleigh Murphy, Patriz Brosnan, Niamh Myers, Sime OGungsbesan, Sarah KIlgallen, Ava Buckley, Caitlin O Sullivan, Ruth Moriarty, Niamh Flatley, Arianne Finnegan, Jade Powell, Tara Fitzgerald.

Under 8 & under 10 Blitz

altU8 & U10 BLITZ:
On last Saturday we held our annual U8 and U10 blitz. This was the 17th year we have held this tournament. Over 450 children took part with 12 clubs playing in both age groups. In the U8 age group there was 30 games played with each team having 5 games. It was played in a total non-competitive format with every child getting plenty of playing time.
The U10 teams were split into 2 groups with 6 teams in each group. Each team had 5 games in the group stage. It was great to see all the Clubs giving plenty of playing time to all their squads. Our own team came out on top in their group with Churchill winning their group. It a good competitive final, Churchill proved a bit too strong and were eventual winners. Churchill have taken part every year since the tournament started and this is the first year that they have won it outright. A huge congratulations to the Churchill players and mentors.
The club would like to thank all those who helped make this another great success. To Humphrey and his team who looked after the traffic management, for those who got the pitches ready, the volunteers in the shop who kept us all well fed and to the referees who gave up their time to help us and in particular those who came from the other clubs. It was great to see all the skills of the game on show by the youngsters which shows the future of football is looking good.
