U12 Football League FINAL
Division 1C North
Sat 4th Oct, in Menlough 11am
Its all to play for tomorrow morning as the young footballers of Kinvara and St. Gabriels clash in the League final decider.

The two sides have played some great football to get here, and have even crossed paths earlier in the league. In that match, the Kilconnell side won on a scoreline of 5-8 to 3-2, although Kinvara did trouble them at times during the game.
Kinvara had a solid league campaign and although we lost two matches, we did enough in our other three to secure wins, and a second place finish in the group table. We beat Athenry, Caltra and Menlough, while we also lost to Craughwell. The Kinvara lads are improving with each match, and will hope to continue that progression again tomorrow morning.
St. Gabriels have been the side to beat all year, and they have won an impressive 5 from 5 in the group stages. They are very strong down the middle, and have plenty of skilful players along the wings.
Our paths have crossed frequently this year, with us already having played them at U13 football league, and at U14 football league stages twice, including the U14 Shield Final. In all those meetings however, the result has been the same, with St. Gabriels winning in all.  Is it time for Kinvara to reverse the outcomes. This u12 team believe it is!
Kinvara's path to the final:
Kinvara 7-2 beat Menlough 0-4
St. Gabriels 5-8 beat Kinvara 3-2
