Academy U9 vs DLS

Our U9 academy squad travelled into De la Salle this afternoon in bitter cold conditions but put on a brilliant display along with DLS in a series of 9 games. A good number of our u8s battled with the older lads for the first time and certainly showed how capable they were.

Goal of the day must go to young Ryan Sutton who got stuck in and got his just rewards with a goal in a 6-6 thriller, not bad for a younger academy player.

Credit to the parents for braving the cold and cheering on the kids. It does make that little bit of difference. Big thanks to Gavin Lonergan, Nicky McGrath and their young coaches in De la Salle for hosting us. Brilliant to see the younger coaches getting involved and taking charge from a young age.
