Un­der-15 foot­ballers per­form well

Bray People - - Sport -

THE HAP­PI­EST man around in Wick­low G.A.A. cir­cles this week in the man­ager of the Foot­ball De­vel­op­ment Squads Jerome Kelly.

On Satur­day he took his U-15 squad up to Co. Louth to take part in a four county tour­na­ment and while they brought back no sil­ver­ware he claims that by beat­ing Ar­magh in the semi­fi­nal they did make a bit of his­tory. They were the first such Wick­low team to beat a team from Ul­ster.

Then on Sun­day he went to Croke Park to cheer of his na­tive Ty­rone in their bid for a place in the All-Ire­land fi­nal. Jerome was very pleased with how his un­der­strength side per­formed when beat­ing Ar­magh by 2-6 to 1-4 in the semi-fi­nal.

Mark Keogh of Kil­bride got both goals while Tom Ka­vanagh, Richey Harte, Phillip Mur­phy, Cor­mac Byrne, Justin O’Brien and Ja­son Cush shared the points.

They were beaten by a very strong Meath team - 2-10 to 0-6 - in the fi­nal.

Team - Christy Red­mond ( Rath­new), Ro­nan Marah ( An Tochar), An­drew and Keith Traynor (St. Kevin’s); Shane Ho­gan (Ti­na­hely), Michael Healy ( St. Kevin’s), Stephen Mur­phy (An­nacurra); Tom Ka­vanagh (Balt­in­glass), Ja­son Cush (Ti­na­hely); Phillip Mur­phy ( Rath­new), Justin O’Brien (Eire Og), Mark Keogh (Kil­bride), Richey Harte (St. Ni­cholas), Niall Byrne (Eire Og), Cor­mac Byrne ( Coolkenno). Oth­ers: Stephen Wolo­han (Avon­dale), Paudge O’Con­nor (Rath­new), Brian McCarthy (Kil­mac) and Alan Joyce (Eire Og).
