The club continued its annual participation in the mini-soccer
tournament at the Trim Vintage and Veteran Car Rally on Sunday last.
Robert Bradley and Nick Nally organised the event on the day and
twenty-four youngsters took part in a six-a-side tournament consisting
of four teams. There was an initial group stage before the eventual
playoffs. The players choose the team names and Real Madrid finished in
4th place after narrowly losing out on penalties to 3rd placed Irish
Bulldogs!
The final was also close affair with the aptly named Too
Fast Too Furious emerging victorious over Man Utd in a very exciting
finale. Afterwards all the players received medals for their
participation and Fergal O’Hare a member of last years U-9 squad was
selected as player of the tournament and went home with the inaugural
Ollie O’Brien Memorial Trophy kindly donated by Trim Vintage and
Veteran. Ollie was a former club member who tragically passed away
earlier this year.
