Underage Football

Most of our underage training has now stopped for this season….U6, U8, U10 & U12 Wednesday night training is now at an end (though U10’s are likely to get together a couple of times before a late tournament at the end of September – watch out for those text updates!).  Thanks to everyone who gave up their time right throughout this year – to all the managers and coaches, to the parents who have helped out, and to the players who attended so well and worked so hard to develop their skills – hopefully they all had fun at the same time.

 

St Canice’s Annual Tournament on 1st September brought the U12 season to a close for our players in the best way possible as our A & B teams took home both trophies!  A schedule of 16 games ran across our two pitches as the players from St Canice’s battled against competitors from Buncrana, Galbally & Strabane.  There was no-one to compete with St Canice’s B Team – they won their group comfortably with maximum points, scoring 9 goals and 23 points in the process.  The final pitted them against Galbally – after a slow start by the local lads they eventually found their rhythm and cruised to a 4-06 to 0-01 victory.  This team’s success owes much to the U10′s who stepped up – well done to all.  Galbally edged out Dungiven as A Section group winners, the teams separated only by scoring difference.  With Galbally beating St Canice’s narrowly in the group stages they went to the final as slight favourites.  A very low-scoring game saw St Canice’s come from a point down at half-time to win the game 0-04 to 0-03.  A real battling performance by both teams – whilst Galbally will probably rue a couple of missed chances in the second half, nobody could deny that St Canice’s were deserving winners.  The tournament was a great success – the fact that both home teams won was the icing on the cake. Thanks to everyone who gave up their time to help out on the day, to the three visiting teams for making the effort to travel, and to all the players who played the games in a competitive yet fair manner.

It’s another big week for our U14’s as they meet Kilrea in the A Championship Final – this match will throw-in at 1pm on Sat 8th Sept in Celtic Park and, as always, we’d encourage as many as possible to make the trip to give strong support to this special group of players who have already brought so much success to our Club this year.  All the very  best lads – we know you can do it.

Hard luck to our U16s who were beaten by the narrowest of margins in the U16 Championship semi-final replay against Bellaghy on Sunday.  Although there was never much between the teams in footballing terms, the score-board suggested different as, thanks to two quick goals, Dungiven led by 6 points mid-way through the second half.  Whilst this seemed likely to be a lead that would allow us to close out the game, Bellaghy never gave up – as they levelled in the final moments it appeared extra time was looming, but with the last kick of the game Bellaghy scored a fine point to break Dungiven hearts.  It was always going to be tough for the loser of this fixture between two well-matched teams – hard luck lads.

The U13 competition gets under way this Wednesday night at 7pm in Pairc na nÓg with our B team playing Castledawson.  Players should meet at the club at 6:30pm.

St Canice’s U12 Tournament a success…..

St Canice’s Annual U12 Tournament brought the U12 season to a close for our players in the best way possible as our A & B teams took home both trophies!

A schedule of 16 games ran across our two great pitches as the players from St Canice’s battled against competitors from Buncrana, Galbally & Strabane.

There was no-one to compete with St Canice’s B Team – they won their group comfortably with maximum points, scoring 9 goals and 23 points in the process.  The final pitted them against Galbally – after a slow start by the local lads they eventually found their rhythm and cruised to a 4-06 to 0-01 victory.  This team’s success owes much to the U10’s who made up 2/3 of this team – well done to all.

Galbally edged out Dungiven as A Section group winners, the teams separated only by scoring difference, but with the top two making the final it was a repeat of the B Final.  Galbally had beaten St Canice’s narrowly in the group stages so possibly went to the final as slight favourites.  A very low-scoring game saw St Canice’s come from a point down at half-time to win the game 0-04 to 0-03.  A real battling performance by both teams – whilst Galbally will probably rue a couple of missed chances in the second half, nobody could deny that St Canice’s were deserving winners.

The tournament was a great success – the fact that both teams won was the icing on the cake.

Thanks:

  • to everyone who gave up their time to help out on the day
  • to Derry County Board for providing some referees
  • to those who prepared the food, and to the ladies who managed the catering
  • to the three visiting teams for making the effort to travel, and
  • to all the players who played the games in a competitive yet fair manner.

Underage Football

Under 6’s will have their last training session of the year on Wednesday night at 6:30pm on St Canice’s Primary School Pitch.  Under 8’s, 10’s & 12’s training continues as normal on Wednesday night at 7pm.  The U10 Blitz’s are finished for the year but we have been invited to a tournament at the end of September so training will continue as normal for another month.  Our U12 11-a-side Blitz’s that ran every Saturday during August have now come to an end.  We have our annual Under 12 tournament taking place on Saturday 1st September.  Starting at 10:30am sharp we’ll have matches running on our Main Pitch and at Pairc na nOg – we need as much help as possible to ensure that things run smoothly on the day – underage coaches and parents are strongly encouraged to lend a hand. The annual U13 competition is scheduled to begin on Monday 3rd September – this will be confirmed to players at training this week.  Our U14’s Championship final against Kilrea is scheduled for Sat 8th September at 1pm in Celtic Park – any change to this will be notified through our Website – as always, we’d encourage as much support as possible for this team who have already achieved so much this season.  In a game we probably should have won, our U16’s were held to a draw in their championship semi-final against Bellaghy on Thursday night – hopefully we can come through OK in the replay.

St Canice’s U12 Competition

St Canice’s are holding their annual U12 Competition this Saturday.

Competing teams will be:

  • St. Canice’s
  • Strabane Sigersons
  • Galbally Pearses
  • Buncrana.

There’ll be an 11-a-side A competition, and a 9-a-side B Competition.

Games start at 10:30am sharp and will run on both Páirc Ui Catháin and Pairc na nÓg.

Group games should be completed by 12:30pm, and the Finals should finish for 2pm.

We’d encourage player’s parents and any other interested Club members to lend a hand on the day – there’ll be four games running simultaneously so we’ll need plenty of umpires, lines-people etc.

There’ll be a short meeting in the club at 9:30pm on Thursday night to make final arrangements.
