Our under 16 footballers played Cremartin this evening, Thursday 1st May, in the Gerry’s Prepared Veg league campaign and I’m afraid it was a case of having another bad day at the office as Cremartin totally dominated the encounter and secured a comfortable and comprehensive victory.
On a cool summers evening, with conditions perfect, we clearly struggled to keep pace with Cremartin and their style of football and it was 0-4 to 4-8 at the half-way stage. When play resumed, Cremartin continued to assert their authority on the game and tacked on another 3-5 after the break, while we only managed to add just two points, making the final score Rockcorry 0-6 to Cremartin 7-13.
There is no dispute, Cremartin were superb, they were the better side in every facet of the game where everything went right for them and where nothing went right for us. It was a really tough day for everyone involved but to use the lyrics of the well-known Kanya West song “what doesn’t kill you can only make you stronger” and the lads must now regroup and look forward to the next game where they will have the opportunity to show their true talents and potential. Heads up lads and keep giving it 110% at every training session.
