Under 12: – On Saturday last, the u12s travelled to Colmcille to take part in their u12 tournament which comprised of 16 teams from Longford and Leitrim.
It took St. Vincent’s a game to get into their stride, but when they did they played some great football.
After losing to Leitrim Gaels (3-02/0-05) they recovered with wins over Mohill (3-06/2-05) and Northern Gaels (8-08/0-03) to qualify for the top tier of the cup. In the quarter final they had a very compehensive win over Allen Gaels (7-09/0-01) to reach the semi final where they played Carrick Sarfields.
After putting in a brave effort, they just fell short in a tight game (1-06/2-06). Despite missing a few key players, it was a great effort from the lads on the day. The squad that took part were:
Cian Tierney
James Garvey
Eoin Murtagh
Arron Kiernan
Eoin Kieron
Jack Nertney
Nathan Maher
Aron Brady
Ronan Larkin
Anthony Bohan
Caelum mc Gee
Oisin Kane
Chris Crowe
Leitrim Gaels went on to will the final beating Carrick Sarsfields.
We would like to thank Colmcille for their hospitality and for putting on a great tournament. The players can now look forward with confidence on their trip to Breafy in Mayo to compete in their tournament.
Well done to Eamon Gill and all the St. Vincent’s coaching team.
