U14s. The U/14s are training on Mondays and Thursdays from 5:30. We travelled to Newport last Sunday for the first round of the Feile Competition. A very slow start saw us a couple of goals down early on. Some changes brought a bit more balance to the team and we got more in to the game. We had it back to a goal near half time but another goal for Newport  left it at 3-3 to 1-3 at the break. Nenagh played a lot better in the 2nd half but the scores dried up. A great strike by Grace was defected over the bar. Newport closed ranks and went on to win 3-4 to 1-4. Hard luck to all.
