A great pre season test for our Under 16s today in a very sunny Ashgrove. After months without a game this bunch were very eager to get going. A tough encounter with Ferrybank who sit a division above us this season. There was nothing between the teams all afternoon and the game could have gone either way. Jonah O’Toole looked like he’s being working really hard and pulled off some great stops in goal. Sam Hartwell led the line upfront and his blistering pace will be hard to deal with. Stephen Foran player behind Sam and was passing the ball well today. More pace on the wings through Adam Conway and Sean Lennon is going to be exciting this season. Lee Freyne and Dylan Conway were very strong in midfield full backs Ciara O’Keeffe and Denis Kinsella were instrumental in keeping out Ferrybank today. Conor Dermody and Tom Conway also provided a brick wall not to pass… the only goal of the game came from a corner by Lee Freyne that was chested over the line by Tom Conway. Daniel Roberts and Matthew Morahan both came on to add to the game. With players to come back we look forward to the season ahead. Great test and well done all and thanks to Ferrybank for the game. Big thank you to Noel Ryan for traveling to ref the game.
