Our Senior Footballers bowed out of the County Championship on Saturday afternoon against Ballinascreen with the heaviest defeat ever in the championship by a St Canice’s side, on a scoreline of 3.11-0.07. An unrecognisable team from their last 2 performances in this championship.
Congratulations to St Colm’s Ballinascreen and good luck in the rest of the Championship.
Youth Notes for this week.
U6 training is now finished up for this season.
U8’s – training is now finished up for the year. Unfortunately the horrible weather of last Saturday morning led to a late cancellation of the last Go Games blitz in Owenbeg, so the season ended on a bit of a low for our young players. On behalf of all the players the Club owes a massive thanks to Paddy, Tommy and the rest of the U8 coaches for the work they’ve put into all training, Blitz’s and Tournaments during the 2013 season. We’d wish all those players now finished their U8 careers the very best of luck…..your performances at blitz’s and tournaments during 2013 shows you’re more than capable of the step up to U10 in 2014. All players who’ll be back at U8 next year should continue to practice the skills you learned during 2013 so that you’ll improve over the winter and be back in 2014 as even better players.
U10’s – training for this year is now finished.
U12’s – training for the year finished last week. Our U12s brought the busy 2013 season to an end on Saturday as they travelled to Magherafelt with an A & B team to take part in their annual tournament. The A team faced their hosts in the first game and came away with a well-deserved draw. Next up was our old friends Bellaghy….our lads knew they had to raise their game to challenge this well drilled side, coached by Karl diamond. Excellent team work from our players got us over the line, winning by a margin of 3 points. The weather remained rotten right up till the time the lads lined out for their third game against Coalisland. After scoring 10 goals and 9 points we took a well-earned break to refuel. After lunch we played the favourites, Cookstown team ‘Rock’. Our lads played their best football of the year and gave everything they had. With 2 minutes left on the clock we were a point up but a defensive error meant the ball ended up in the back of our net, denying our lads a place in the cup final. With nothing left to give we faced Bellaghy again in the shield final, Bellaghy coming away winners. Well done to ‘Rock’ and Bellaghy, cup and shield winners respectively. The managers would like to thank the Uplayers for ending the season on such a high adding that “it was a pleasure working with such a bunch of talented young players”. Thanks to the U12 Management team of Peter, Brian, Thomas and Declan for all your efforts during a busy season.
U13’s – Our U13s had an unfortunate “mystery-bus tour” to Bellaghy on Thursday night last after wrong fixture information was passed to the U13 management team by the soon-to-be unemployed St Canice’s Youth Officer….sorry for the wasted trip lads, but on a positive note we remain undefeated! There really is a game this week….promise! Our U13’s play Newbridge on Monday night in Swatragh – 7pm throw-in. Bus leaves club at 6:00pm sharp.
U15’s – Our County-winning U15 sevens teams played in the Ulster Óg Sport finals in Glen, Maghera, on Saturday morning. The first game against Cavan Gaels saw us face an extremely physical challenge – to counter this our boys played a very fast and direct style of football to win very comfortably – 6-01 to 1-04. Next up were the Tyrone champions, Carrickmore. This proved to be a very tense affair, but our running game, couple with some great scores from distance against a packed defence, meant we came out as narrow winners by 2-07 to 2-05. Topping our group meant we qualified for the semi-final where we were drawn against the Armagh champions, Clann Eireann. The group matches took their toll as we carried a few knocks into this game, and then we lost a couple of players in the first half – all of this resulted in a slow start and we ended up trailing by 1-05 to no score at half time. The boys put in a magnificent 2nd-half display but the comeback fell just short in the end, where we lost 2-07 to 2-04. This tough encounter worked against Clann Eireann who went on to lose the final against St Eunans of Letterkenny. This was another great effort by the young men from St Canices and no doubt days like this will serve them well for their future with our club.
U16’s – training for the year is now finished.
