Last night our U19 Team lost out narrowly to Clann na nGael in Athboy; 3-11 to 3-9.
Cilles started well and led for most of the game in a real ding battle battle with the lads from Athboy. A late penalty and 2 quick points finally won it for Clann na nGael where their star midfielder Cian Swaine played a stormer. Well done to Clann na nGael and thanks for a fine sporting match.
Great credit and thanks to our players (and supporters) who put in a big effort, full of commitment and made the journey to Athboy for 7pm start.
For many this was their first match of the year or had little training with Leaving Certs, college, etc.
Thanks to this U19 League, it’s not perfect but many are getting to play football they would not be getting elsewhere.
