Ballela teams compete at blitzes

BALLELA U8 and U10 teams travelled to Castlewellan on Saturday for the first outdoor blitz of the season.

The U8’s played only one game against Liatroim. This was a very competitive game with both teams giving their all.

The U10’s played four games, Ballyvarley, Clonduff, Liatroim and Newry Shamrocks. All games were competitive and very little between all the teams. The idea behind these blitzs is that the kids learn the basic skills and haave fun at the same time. All the boys and girls got games and enjoyed the the day.

The kids also met Diarmuid O’Sullivan who has won a number of All Ireland’s playing for Cork.

Thanks to the host club Castlewellan for a great day.

Upcoming games: U12s - Thursday 14th April away to Liatroim.

U10s - Saturday April 30, Blitz in Ballela

U8s - Saturday May 7, Blitz in Castlewellan

Underage training every Friday night 7pm to 8pm at the pitch in Ballela. Everyone welcome.
