U8 Football blitz – 9/5


Shamrocks hosted the latest Carrigdhoun Football blitz this morning.


It was a perfect morning for football and this was borne out by the number of teams who entered. 


Shamrocks has a good mix of young and old boys and as it was our first morning together, we weren’t sure what to expect.


What we got was tremendous displays in all 3 matches played.


We won all our games against Ballygarvan, Passage and Tracton.


What was most pleasing was the performance of the younger lads ( we had some aged 5 and 6 years) who were brave and fearless against bigger and older opponents.

The older lads lead by example and we got some fantastic scores in all games.

Overall, most encouraging.


A special word of mention to the parents, grandparents and siblings who turned up in great numbers.

Also, thanks to Stephen and Brendan (our nominated referee!) for their assiatance this morning.


Shamrocks squad this morning – Cian Lynch, Ewan Clarke, Calum Gregson, Harry O’Leary, Cormac Brady, David Herlihy, Donal Herlihy, Shane O’Flynn, James Keane, Luke Jordan, Josh Busteed, Jason O’Driscoll, Ryan Barrett.
