U14 Football

We played Whitechurch on Saturday 23rd and on the day they were the stronger team. We only had 15 players and thanks to all who travelled. Ben brought off a number of saves while Adam played a vital role at full back. Jordan and John were clearing balls continuously as the backs were under constant pressure.

Patrick Eoin and Griffin were trying hard to send balls to the forwards. Christopher and Peter had their hands full at midfield but were chasing everything. Conor, Brian and Kieran were helping the backs while pushing forward at every chance. Shane took possession and found the net while Mark and Shaun were working tirelessly. Griffin pointed and Adam scored a goal from a well taken penalty.
