Report by Niall Egan

Team Blue played Lisdowney in Nowlan Park on Saturday 6th of June in the Go Games finals. Playing 9 a-side with a strong breeze our lads started well, with Ryan, James & Aaron getting the Kilmanagh side off to a lively start. We rotated our subs every few minutes but this didn’t interupt our dominance.

Thanks to Ben and Aaron who agreed to play the 2nd half with Lisdowney, meaning everyone got full game time. For the record we won 5 games and drew 1 to complete our round of Go Game fixtures.

Panel: Aidan Cahill, Paidí Egan, Ben Young, James O’Halloran, Aidan Comerford, Aaron McEvoy, Chris Mahony, James Casey, Elliot Teehan, Donnacha Cleere, Ryan Corcoran.
