Clover Tournament

We entered two teams in the Clover Tournament today in the magnificent Ferrybank grounds with the pitches in perfect condition. Two slow starts did not help the cause with our younger side in a tough physical group with Tramore, Ballyduff and Kilmacow and found the going tough but battled hard in all three games. The older lads recovered with two wins after their opening defeat to enter the penalty shoot out lottery to see if they would advance to the quarter final. Shane Purcell was the hero in the shootout saving the crucial penalty to set up a quarter final with a very impressive New Ross Town.
This proved to be a cracker of a game with New Ross deservedly winning out 4-2 to advance.
Great experience for all the kids throughout the day.
Big thanks to Mick Mullowney and his crew for a very well run tournament.
