Well done to the U13 Boys; Mark Evans, Ryan Kavanagh, Finn Egan Baron, Bill O’Brien, Mark O’Brien and Cathal O’Briain, who headed to Ballinakill for the U13 County Development Squad on Sunday.
Our U10 girls played their second blitz of the season in sunny Ashford last Saturday. The Pats girls had a great turnout with 16 girls in attendance: Aideen, Aine, Aislinn, Ailbhe, Alannah, Amy, Ava, Caitlin, Grace, Grainne, Hannah, Isabelle, Marie, Maedbh, Niamh & Orla. The girls played two 30 minutes matches against Bray Emmets & hosts Ashford. The girls were split in to 2 even teams and played a half against both opposition. The girls played some great football on the day and the work being put in at training on Saturdays @ 11am is paying off on the pitch. Well done to all the girls involved. Thanks to the coaches, parents & supporters on the day.
After doing very well at last Friday’s Go Games in Greystones, our U8 Hurlers were back to the training field on Tuesday evening at St. Pats NS. Winners of our coveted Players of the Week awards were U8 Conor Coffey and U7 Tiernan Shorthall! Training takes place every Tuesday at 6.45pm, with new players welcome.
