Under 12’s
The lads completed their season with a double home fixture vs Mullingar Shamrocks on Wednesday evening last.
This was the third time they had met this season and once again there was very little between the sides.
The under 12’s edged home by a single point and the under 11’s ended all square.
Well done to all 4 teams who produced some great football in difficult underfoot conditions following some heavy showers.
 Thanks to referees Martin and Mick for taking the whistle once again.
We congratulate our under 12 panel for a great season and thank them and their families for their support and commitment.
The final coaching session took place on Saturday with refreshments afterwards in the clubhouse – thanks to everyone who provided food and to Claire and Helen for holding fort in the kitchen. Anyone that didnt receive their team photo on Saturday should contact Marc.
