U12 We played Cashel last Saturday in the U12 Go-Games League in Cashel. Our girls were up against a very strong team but as the game went on they really got into their stride. and set up many attacks especially in the second half. Our girls gave it their all to the very end but we had to give way to stronger opposition.The girls have to be commended on their commitment, determination and positive attitude. Special mention has to be given to our three goalkeepers on the day- Emer Ryan, Yasmin Quirke and Leah Mc Garry. They really displayed great heart, courage and skill. All girls played in various positions throughout he game as the go games format allows for rotating substitution. Well gone girls! We play Clonoulty in the final group game at the weekend.
