U12 and U14's off to an early start
The U12's played a football blitz in Bishopstown GAA club on Sunday (5th February) and competed against the hosts Bishopstown, St Finbarrs and Clontarf from Dublin. While Ballincollig didn't win the blitz the boys did really well, with Clontarf emerging as outright winners. There was a great attendance from our age group and everyone really enjoyed themselves and are looking forward to playing many more games in the coming months.
On Saturday January 28th 32 players came down from Kilmacud Crokes and played Ballincollig Under 14's in two games. I like to thanks the parents of the Under 14's that prepared sandwiches and cakes and were also there to present them to the followers of Kilmacud Crokes, who were very grateful for this. A big thank you to John O'Driscoll for all his help as well. Well done to the two teams, team 1 consisted of Darragh Keohane, Callum Sheehan, David O'Sullivan(1 - 0), Conor O'Driscoll, Ronan Keane, Aidan Keane, Ben Dalton, Liam O'Connell, Dillon Horgan, Dara O'Mahony (0-1), Harry Ahearne, Brian Keating (0-1), Steve Murray, Dylan Ebeli(0-1), Mark O'Keeffe (3-3) Subs used : Dylan Quinn (0-1), Cian O'Driscoll, Sean Dore, Brian Thompson. We scored 4-7, but unfortunately Crokes scored 5-17, this game will stand to the lads throughout 2017.
Our second team were much more successful winning on a scoreline of 7-15 to 2-5, this team consisted of, Cian O'Driscoll, Jim Mannix, Louis Hederman, Olden Buckley, Brian Thompson, Sean Dore, Diarmuid Ward, Tadgh O'Connell, Jame Dwyer, Shane Burke, Cormac Keane, Shane O'Driscoll, Joseph Buckley, Dylan Quinn, James Wills. I like to thank all the under 13's that played on this team and contributed greatly. Thanks to all again for all the help.
