For 2017, David, Darren & Johnny looked after the u12 Reserve girls team. We had a great season culminating in winning the Div 2 Shield.
Some of our highlights of the Spring 2017 Campaign:
- Pre-season challenge games commenced in January – 10 matches a piece for both our Blue & White teams
- Held our squad outing at Causey Farm in March – super day at the bog!
- Proudly participated in St Patrick’s Day parade
- League + Challenge league commenced at end of March
- Reached the Final of the Community Games in April
- Some fantastic battles and brilliant performances as our girls grew throughout the season
- 3 of our u12 were selected for the Meath u12 Development Team – a 4th joined in the Autumn
- Culminating in reaching the Div 2 Shield final in June
Cilles u12 BLUE Team – Div 2 Shield Winners – Well done to our girls for putting in a tough performance today in blistering hot conditions against our friends and neighbours Duleek /Bell. It took all our 17 players in true team style to dig deep in the last quarter to finish out the match. Very proud of you all for earning a very well deserved trophy this season.
August marked the end of our Spring Campaign. We have watched our u12s develop, grow and put in fantastic performances. We have seen great wins and tasted narrow defeats. We have learned with every game and built on our team work, work rate and attitude. It’s a brilliant feeling to have 100% commitment and watch you work hard for each other on the pitch. You have finished the season an even stronger team and deserve your nice long break. Your mentors are very very proud of you.
Thank you to Danny Black, Niall Ronan and Jude McNabb for the specialist training during the season, Our club for the pitch allocations, All you parents for your continued support and most of all our superstar players for creating fantastic memories. Cilles u12 Abu!!!
We are back training now having taken a break for the season. We are entering 3 x u13 girls teams in the League this Autumn, a first for St Colmcilles we believe, as our numbers continue to grow. Our first league matches kick off this weekend, 26th August.
Go Raibh Maith Agaibh.
