JU­VE­NILE GAA

Last Fri­day evening un­der the lights in Avon­dale our un­der14’s took on the reign­ing cham­pi­ons Bless­ing­ton in the fi­nal of this year’s Feile. For once we were quick out of the traps and raced into an early lead, the first half was score for score and fin­ished level at half time 3 points each.

In the sec­ond half Bless­ing­ton got the cru­cial scores while we strug­gled to con­vert the chances we had and while we lost by 6 points we were never re­ally out of the match un­til the fi­nal whis­tle.

The lads bat­tled on gamely and on a night where we did not get the rub of the green or the big de­ci­sions, they still fought un­til the end and can be proud of the ef­fort and com­mit­ment that they put in. With the league and cham­pi­onship still to start you can be sure we have not heard the last of this team.

Panel of play­ers on the night was S Carthy, J Shan­non, S Fenelon, L Keogh, K Dal­ton, R Greenan, E Mo­ran, D Walsh, V Ribakov, R Davis, M Doyle, D Carthy, R Tay­lor, L Turner, K Turner, A Hef­fer­nan and S Pawlac.

Af­ter the match the lads headed back to the club­house for some re­fresh­ments pro­vided by cen­tre, while the par­ents had some of the finest sand­wiches that were ever tasted, made by Jo­hanna and Caro­line. Thanks girls and well done.

The Un­der 8’s are cur­rently train­ing on Mon­days and Wed­nes­days from 6-7 so if you have a boy or girl that wants to learn the ba­sics of the game and have a bit of fun then please con­tact Frankie at 086 3808799 for more de­tails. The club would like to ex­tend their deep­est sym­pa­thies to the fam­ily and friends of John Doyle RIP who trag­i­cally passed away last week. May he rest in peace.
