Camden pitch was the venue for this year’s John Kerins Memorial Cup qualifiers. Four U11 teams battled it out for two qualifying spots in the semi finals to be held on the 16th June. First round games pitched Shamrocks against Passage and Ballygarvan against Crosshaven.
Crosshaven won convincingly against Ballygarvan and Shamrocks had a great game against Passage, coming out 4-4 to 1-2 victors. Our next match was against Ballygarvan which had Ballygarvan leading by one point at half time. Shamrocks dug deep and produced a great 2nd half which was rewarded with a winning tally of 4-5 to1-5.
Having now qualified Shamrocks took on a very strong Crosshaven side. Tagged as favourites they were a little too strong for our lads and won 3-5 to 0-5. Three great performances by the Shamrocks side ensured our place in the semi finals, so well done to all the lads and thanks to the parents and grandparents for their support.
