U8 Footballers travel to Craughwell

In bright sunshine and a capacity crowd, twenty two of our U8 Footballers took to the pitch to play Craughwell in Craughwell on September 23rd.  We fielded two teams and both teams played two matches each.

For each match, our captains decided to play into the strong breeze in the first half.  This meant alot of concentrated effort and work by everyone early on, with our goalkeepers keeping a close eye on the high balls coming in.  However, with the first half over, it was Kinvara’s chance to play with the breeze at our backs.  Some fine football was played in what proved to be close and entertaining matches.  At the end of it, our teams came off the pitch knowing a good job had been done – smiles all around.

Kinvara Team:   Adam Noone, Allanna Huban, Andrew Horan , Cathal Corless,  Cian Mullane, Conor Martin, Cormac Ivers, Daniel Corless,  Eoin Slattery, Grace Tarpey-Ryan, Jamie Gunning, Joe Corless , Lorcan Heavey, Mark Costello, Michael Curtin, Michael Mac Sweeney, Michael Forde , Paraic Pearl, Sarah Costello, Sean Malone , Stephen Connolly, Thomas Seeley.
