U12s win Mullingar Tournament;

Sunday the 8th of September saw us up bright and early as we hit for Mullingar to play in the Sean Dempsey under 12 annual tournament. 


This tournament was different in many respects to some of our previous tournaments, normally we play 11 aside and play across the pitch. this was 13 aside and, full width of the pitch, and goals placed on the 20m line at each end. we travelled with a squad of 19 players, including the 2 oldest under 11s to make up the required numbers. 


This was a tournament held jointly by Mullingar shamrocks and st Lomans gaa . Each venue hosted 8 teams ,2 groups of 4. playing a round robin format. the winners of the groups stayed in st Lomans and 2nd and 3rd went down to Mullingar Sharmocks ground. our 3 games were at 10.30,11.30,12.30 .1st up was Rochfortsbridge, followed by Carrick Sarsfields, and finally Lomans . . victories in these games ensured a semi-final berth at 1.30. against Shamrocks. 


The adults in the group and our supporters were keeping a close eye on events in foxford. Victory in this game saw us book a final spot against the favourites Clane. these were a well drilled team that seemed to have it all, height, pace, power and skill. while the seniors were powering to victory in foxford amid torrential down pours, we were sweltering in the heat in Mullingar. 


All teams agreed before matches to use the 2-play rule. but for the final Clane insisted on unlimited plays as per the competition rules. it took us a little time to come to terms with these lads but once we showed our own qua;ities . 6-point lead at half time was a fair reflection of our endeavours, second half saw them dig deep to get back into the game, but we matched them all the way to finish 6 points up. 


Every player that travelled made contributions to the success. So, all that was left for us to do was collect the trophy, get a mc donalds in Longford and hit home to join the victorious seniors
