Best performance on the day came from Pascal Corrigan’s U10 Jets who played out a very creditable scoreless draw against the much more experienced Trim Celtic Eagles side managed by Peter Callaghan. This was the first ‘result’ for the Jets after several outings and it augers well for the future. A few new players will join the squad this week and hopes are high that the Jets will find their way into the ‘winners enclosure’ very soon. The Jets only played one game on Saturday.
The U10 Eagles also scored an impressive result in drawing 2-2 with the Club’s U10 Raptors in a most enjoyable game. On target for the Eagles was Cian Goodwin who scored both. Star man was goalkeeper Shane Callaghan who kept the Raptors at bay with a number of fine saves. For the Raptors Kyle Dixon & Pierre Fox were the marksmen. The Raptors also played Kells Pumas and emerged 8-0 winners. The scorers were Colin Fitzgerald, Ciaran Harte, Kyle Dixon, David Rennick and Pierre Fox with one each, Eoin O’Connor with 2 and Jack Byrne with a hat-trick. No results yet for the U10 Cubs.
