Garden County Academy club notes May 11


wicklowacadUnder 15:
Our U15 squad had their biggest turnout this year so far with 37 players in attendance in Ballinakill.
A panel of 18 players played an U16 selection in a full game, with the rest of the players working with S&C coach Shay Dunne for an extended period before taking part in some conditioned games.
Next Saturday a panel will be picked to represent Wicklow in the first Leinster Blitz of 2015 in Fenagh Co Carlow.
Other teams in attendance will Tipperary, Limerick and Wexford along with the host County, Carlow.

Under 16:
Our U16 team played a Dublin selection in a challenge game last Saturday. The first half saw both teams matching each other with Dublin taking a 1.5 to 0.6 lead into half time.
The second half saw Wicklow making wholesale changes.  Dublin edged the 2nd half scoring 2 late goals leaving the scoreline 3.10 to 1.8. Last weekend our u16 panel played the U15 and U17 teams respectively.
This was a good workout where every player on the panel got one hour of football.  Next Saturday we travel to Westmeath to play the host county along with Sligo and Carlow.  We now have a working panel of 35 players.
We will be picking a match day panel of 23 players from the above to take part in the Gerry Reilly which takes place in Meath in late June.
