U17 Youth-News Focus
Parnells would like to congratulate the U17 team on their magnificent win against St Kiernan’s in the U17 Development League Final which took place on a bright and sunny afternoon on the 1st of April in Greenford. Both sides produced tremendous football; exhibiting skills, grit and determination and the players and managers of both teams should be complemented as should the referee James Carry who officiated in a fine and fair manner. After a close first half, ending with Parnells leading 2-05 to 2-03, they pulled away with a spate of 3 goals in the opening stages of the second half. St Kiernans kept the pressure up defending well and scoring on the counter attack but Parnells upped their game with a strong finish securing the win. Final score 8 – 07 to 5 – 08.
