Our under 12 footballers travelled to Cloghan, Annyalla to play Cremartin in the Gerry’s Prepared Veg Spring League Final on Saturday 11th May. Weather conditions were horrible and one would be forgiven for thinking it was the middle of winter because it was bitterly cold, wet and windy and we even had the odd hailstone shower but that did not stop the players, from both clubs, providing a high standard of football and a very entertaining match.
Despite missing many regular players, due to First Holy Communion in the Parish, all the boys and girls put in a very good performance, especially during the first half, when they played against a very strong breeze and at the interval we trailed by 1-1 to 2-5. When play resumed they produced some great attacking football that was a delight to watch and they managed to reduce the deficit back to just a single point. However, Cremartin had the ability to respond and just kept their noses in front with some fine points from play. With the final whistle approaching we applied a lot of pressure in search of that equalising score but sadly time ran out and Cremartin secured the victory by a single score, Cremarin 4-6 Rockcorry 3-6.
Congratulations to the Cremartin club on their win and I would just like to thank all the parents and supporters who travelled to Cloghan to cheer on and support our future footballers. Many thanks to John Elliot and Colm Donnelly for looking after the team and hopefully we will have other days later on in the year. Keep up the good work boys and girls.
