Another busy weekend of action lies ahead with all attentions on Saturday focused on two of our sides who are in National Cup action.
The Michael Boyle managed under-13s travel to play St Joseph’s Boys in Dublin in the last 16 of the SFAI Cup while the Youths are at home to another Dublin side in Mountview Boys at the Aura in a last 32 clash in the FAI Youth Cup. Best of luck to both teams with both matches kicking off at 2pm.
Last weekend was a quiet one on the field but resulted in mixed results. Our Youths advanced in the Gorey Curran Cup defeating Fanad on penalties after the game ended 1-1 after extra time. Conor Lynch was the goalscorer while successful spot kicks were taken by Ciaran Daffan, Zac Gorman, David O’Donnell and Daire Morrison.
