Last Thursday morning/afternoon there was an u12 blitz for regional girls squads held in Carriganore. 3 games played for each squad with Emily Blackmore starring in a variety of positions.
First game Emily was goalkeeper( a position she loves to play in ) in a 2-2 draw between Waterford/Cork selection v South Dublin. The second game they were beaten 3-2 by South East selection with Emily scoring the two goals for Waterford/Cork.
The final game saw them beaten 2-1 by North Dublin in what turned out to be an excellent blitz with quality on show throughout.
With Emily only turning 11 last month,she now has the year coming to really make her mark at her own age group at this level providing she succeeds at the upcoming trials. An excellent attitude and work rate which will bring this young girl a long way in the game. Emily is pictured in her goalkeeping kit for Waterford/Cork.
