As part of our vintage festival held last Sunday an under 10 football competition took place in memory of my late father Bosco Carroll. Four clubs, Rockcorry, Latton, Aghabog and Killeevan, battled it out to become the inaugural winners of this trophy and after two electrifying games of football (Latton v Killeevan and Rockcorry v Aghabog) the Latton and Rockcorry teams progressed to the final.
The final was truly a titanic battle and was undoubtedly the game of the tournament as both teams were evenly matched and all players treated the massive crowd to a great game of football but in the end the Latton team just pipped our wee warriors by a couple of points to claim the victory and be first club to win the trophy. In a way, it was fitting that the team captain of Latton, Darragh Dempsey, who is a grandson of the late Bosco Carroll, collected the cup from Ann Carroll.
On behalf of the club and my family I would like to thank the Latton, Aghabog, Killeevan and our own club for taking part in the competition and for making it such a wonderful and enjoyable occasion. Finally, many thanks to Pascal Smyth for organising the competition and to Anthony Tate who refereeing the games. Thanks Lads.
