U14's Feile Peile na NÃ³g in Derry 2013South London Report- All Ireland Champions
We have returned from a magnificent weekend in Derry with South London being crowned Division 4 All Ireland Champions. Ninety six boys' teams took part and we were placed in Division 4 with 15 other teams. South London opened the competition with comfortable victories over the two local teams Limavady Wolfhounds GFC and Dorie Trasna GFC. In our final group game we came up against Enniskillen Gaels of Co. Fermanagh; we had to win this game to progress in the competition and our opponents had an unbeaten record for the last two years! The game ebb flowed and flowed with both teams having the ascendency at different stages. With two minutes remaining South London trailed by a point but up stepped Will Ozono to score three unanswered points which helped us record a two point victory. This game was described by many of the large attendance as being the game of the tournament!
In the semi-final, South London recorded a comfortable victory against the Champions of Co. Westmeath, St Loman's and in the final they defeated Ennistymon of Co. Clare by 2 -12 (18pts) to 1 - 00 (3pts) to win the All Ireland title.
