Under 12 Football Mini League

Carnew 1-12       AGB 3-6

Carnew fought back well to eke out a draw when they came up against a good AGB team on Monday August 26th in Carnew.  AGB got off to a dream start and were well ahead on the scoreboard after 20 minutes. Carnew slowly but surely got a foothold in the game with some great scores from Dan Redmond, Cillian Doyle, Ben Gilligan and some accurate footwork from Conor Neville kept Carnew in with a fighting chance. Daragh Rawson, Jack Brownrigg, Zack Jordan and Shane Byrne were also notable for Carnew. Two evenly matched teams served up an entertaining game of football. As the season is coming to a close, Carnew are looking forward to playing in the finals.
