U14 League Division 1 v Dulwich 16th May

We were dealt our first defeat of the season by a strong Dulwich Harps side at Northwick Park on Monday evening. A slow and sluggish start to the game saw us 2-2 to no score down after 15 minutes, as we struggled to get to grips with the power and athleticism of Dulwich. We would not be able to maintain a consistent level, playing only in patches, but would get back to within a point of Dulwich, only for them to score the final 2 points of the match. Niall Twomey and Jojo Thabu stood out in a below par performance. The remaining team being Jack Curd, Aidan Doran, Cormac O’Brien, Darragh Griffin, Beanón Corrigan, Paddy Gilroy, Sam Langan, Eoghan Reilly, Ben Brown, Niall Bradshaw, Liam Lavery, Daniel Rossiter, Patrick Murphy and Daniel Mullin. Congratulations to Dulwich on their victory and our thanks to all who supported us on the night.

U14 League Division 2

We finally got our campaign underway with 2 matches in the past week. In our first match we came up against a very strong and determined St. Clarets team who inflicted a resounding defeat on us. Credit to the players though, who would have that defeat in their minds when we played TCG on Sunday morning. In a highly entertaining match, we would come away with the victory in a high scoring contest. The match would ebb and flow throughout with Parnells just shading it for the first 40 minutes or so. TCG came back strongly as our boys tired, and registered a number of scores without reply. We managed to calm things with a couple of scores ourselves including a well worked move which resulted in a point by Seamus Curry to steady the flow. In total, 7 of the starting 11 would score, including birthday boy Evan Gibbons, the O’Brien brothers (Joseph and Patrick), the midfield pairing of Oliver Steward and Jerome Walsh, and Liam Duncan. These players were ably assisted by Conor Griffin, Jamie Logan, James Philips, Conor Moran and Shane Curry. This really was an excellent performance, with plenty of effort, skill and determination by all involved. Special mentions also to Josh Moran, Kenny Walsh and Dan Kershaw who played in the match v St. Clarets but were unavailable for Sundays game. Our thanks to both St. Clarets and TCG and to all who supported us for both matches.
