Youngsters battle through tough group

The U9s managed by Jonny Kerr and Lee McGrath, aided by coaches Rory Hill, Eric Annett and Robert Jones, were in a very tough group and their first match resulted in a 4-1 loss against a very strong Lourdes Celtic A’.

The second game was against group favourites Shamrock Rovers A and although they went down by 5-2 the Juniors showed great ability proving they could compete against the best.

The third game was against Lourdes Celtic B and having led 3-2 for a good part of the game unfortunately a lapse of concentration in the final ten minutes resulted in Celtic scoring two late goals.

In their final match against Hillsborough Boys the young Juniors finally showed what they are capable of with a comfortable 9-0 win.
