Best year ever for Kent Stainless Steel U10 Football

 

The Kent Stainless Steel under 10 Football competition is now winding up after the biggest number of entries ever. Well done to all the teams on the superb football they have been playing over the last two months.
 
The Gorey District is completely finalised and the clubs there deserve great credit for sticking so well to the schedule. The finals were played in Naomh Éanna’s pitch last Wednesday night and Shay Keevans from the Gusserane club was on hand to present the cups and medals.

There was some wonderful skills on display and a special well done to Buffers Alley as it was their first time entering the competition and they duly brought home the cup. The finals went as follows:
 
A.    Naomh Eanna 1  beat Réalt na Mara
B.    Craanford  beat  St Patrick’s       
C.    Kilanerin 2    beat  Castletown 1

Four of the five finals in the New Ross district have been played to date. The eagerly awaited Gusserane V Horeswood A final is scheduled to take place this coming Wednesday in Horeswood. The pick of the finals so far was the Bannow/Ballymitty versus Adamstown game where a couple of late Bannow scores saw the sea-siders snatch victory by a single point. Paudie Foran from the Gusserane club was on hand to present the cups and medals.
