When Mr. Frost doesn’t get you the first time, he makes sure he will on the sec­ond oc­ca­sion and this was the rea­son be­hind the can­cel­la­tion of both the Un­der 11’s and Un­der 12’s games last week­end as bone hard pitches put paid to any on-field action.

How­ever the 13’s and 8A’s both saw action last Satur­day. The 8’s failed to win for the first time this sea­son as they had to set­tle for a 2-all draw away to Ark­low Town. Jack Doyle and Cian Walsh scored the goals and main­tained their team’s un­beaten start to the sea­son.

The old say­ing ‘you wait for a bus for ages and then two ar­rive at the same time’ ap­plies to the Un­der 13’s who made it two wins on the bounce with an em­phatic 7-2 win over Wolfe Tone. Luke Martin led the way with a dou­ble hat-trick while Stu­art Syn­nott added the other goal. Best on the day for the 13’s were, Mark Flood, Steven Davis and Hughie McDaid.

The fol­low­ing are the fix­tures for the week­end­ing Sat. 13th/Sun. 14th De­cem­ber: Un­der 8A’s, 8B’s & 9’s Fix­tures to be con­firmed. Un­der 10’s Home to Grey­stones ‘A’ KO T.B.C.
