Under 16 Championship

Our under 16 team, Rock-Emmets were in action last Thursday evening when they travelled to play Corduff in the semi-final of the championship. This was a fine game of football with both teams producing skill and showing spirit to a very high level. Unfortunately, despite a brave and valiant effort from the lads we just fell short against an impressive Corduff team, who in truth were perhaps the stronger side, and the concession of four goals proved extremely costly as they ran out eventual winners on a score-line Corduff 4-12 Rock-Emmets 2-11. This concludes our interest in the under 16 football competitions this year and I would like to say well done to all the players for their huge effort and character they showed during the year. In addition, many thanks to the team mentors for taking the time to manage and coach this group of players.

Under 14 Team

The under 14 footballers are back in action this Saturday 15th September when they travel to play Clontibret B at 12 noon.
