Age Group: U16 Ladies
Date: 8th August – 5:30pm
Teams: Cumann Pheadair Naofa (U16s) vs East Belfast 2nds (Seniors)
Venue: Moygannon, Warrenpoint
Match Summary: As a prelude to the senior match that came later in the evening, Cumann Pheadair Naofa U16s welcomed an East Belfast 2nd team, on a warm & sunny evening at Moygannon. With East Belfast being a new club, there was perhaps a little apprehension amongst the Blues, as they were unsure of exactly what they were about to face. As soon as the match started, one thing that certainly became clear, was the determination of the visiting team. On a large pitch, in warm conditions & playing 13 a side, all the ladies put in a good shift & provided the many spectators with a match that should live long in the memory.
The day was very much about taking part. The final score was not recorded. The final score did not matter. Well done to those who did score, well done to those who made a pass that created a score, well done to those who blocked a score. Well done to those who turned out for their club & tried their hardest.
One score that should be mentioned is the second half goal scored by East Belfast’s Brogin. After her initial shot was well saved by Cara Bradley, Brogin followed up by rifling the ball into the roof of the net to get the first ever goal for East Belfast seconds.
The skills will develop over time, but without doubt the determination & desire to play are already present in the East Belfast ladies.
