Resounding display against a spirited Naomh Brid

Kilpeacon U14 Football finished off their league campaign by topping the table with a resounding display against a spirited Naomh Brid winning on a scoreline of 7 – 8 to 1 – 2 .

We had a great spread of scorers from all over the field with great displays from to name but a few , Ben , Jack , Adam and Cathal and some towering defensive displays from Richard , Patrick and Conor.

Special praise must go to the U12 players who took to the field on the night , Sam in goals , Patrick in defence and Cathal up in the forwards.

The most pleasing aspect of this squad of players is the team spirit and also the fairness in the way they play , it is a testament to all players on the panel on their achievements so far and there is more to come with the Divisonal cup semi final to come so hopefully we can keep this squad together to see out the remaining games.

Great work by all the coaches , Noel , Jack , Caimin , Aidan and Ger.

U12 home game vs Mungret thur 31st July

Our U12 Football squad have had some tough matches recently and next up for us is a local derby against our close neighbours Mungret.

Our previous game against Mungret was a lively encounter with Mungret edging out in a tough game so we are all looking forward to welcoming Mungret’s young players to Crecora’s home pitch on Thursday 31st @ 18:45pm in what promises to be another good game.

Here’s hoping we can reverse the last result and show all our players and supporters what we are capable of.
