U15A Footballers finish season with a brave effort in championship semi final

The U15A footballers put up a spirited performance on Sunday morning against Whitehall in our A championship semi final in Bridgefield. The lads never looked out of place against a Whitehall side that finished 2nd in Division 1 this year.The game was still in the balance until the last 15 minutes when Whitehall's experience at this level saw them finish out the stronger side. Having beaten Division 2 champions Skerries in the first round and St Vincents in the quarter final these lads know the level at which they can perform and if they stick together and train hard through the winter they can be sure of giving Division 2 and U16s championship a real go next year.

 

Our final league position this year was not a reflection of the lads abilities. A run of injuries and illness at the start of the year got us off to a poor start but once we had all the lads available we managed a six match unbeaten run before the summer break. This and the subsequent championship run can leave the lads with no doubts about what is possible.

We will be commencing a fitness programme in the the coming weeks and a number of friendlies are being organised to keep us working together over the winter.
So congratulations to the lads on their achievements this year and we look forward to a great year at U16.
