Both our U11 squads were in action this morning in damp soft conditions. The blue squad travelled to play Villa and put in 2 excellent performances in testing conditions. The progress made by this squad since the first meeting with Villa has been excellent. The Orange squad hosted Bohs in very soft conditions. With the majority of the squad made up of our older academy players, they found the going tough against a decent Bohs squad but still kept battling regardless with excellent performances put in by more senior players like Liam Mackey, Thomas O’Neill and Michael Murphy. All of this squad have at least one more year at u11 with the majority having 2 years. Good experience gained regardless.
Unfortunately, the u13 game away to Villa and the 2b game away to Waterford Crystal succumbed to the weather with overnight rain making the pitches unplayable.
Tomorrow, our youths play Ferrybank B at home so fingers crossed the rain stays away and the wind blows a gale. 2pm kick off. Support for this lot would be most welcome.
