U14 Roinn B Football League – GBC v Mullinavat – 12/2/2017

Report by P J Trant

The U14s travelled to Mullinavat on a bitter Sunday morning to begin their season. Aided by the wind in the first half, the boys kept the Mullinavat boys scoreless whilst also racking up an impressive 3-6.
In the second half Billy Egan played the sweeper role as the Graigue boys packed the defence to protect their lead against a Mullinavat onslaught. It never came as the full back line held firm with great support from the half back and midfielders, Despite the defensive efforts a penalty was awarded to Mullinavat but was saved well.

U14 Review 2016

Report by Martin Delahunty

The U14 boys started out their campaign in the Football League all the way back in April with a deserved victory over city rivals O’Loughlin Gaels. This was the only runout they got in the Football League due to walkovers and unplayable pitches. But they were now into hard training for the hurling league after spending the winter months in a boxing club working on agility and upper body strength.

Declan Byrne Memorial Tournament – Sunday 12th June 2016

Report by Martin Delahunty

The annual U14 Declan Memorial Byrne Tournament took place on Sunday last in Tom Ryall Park. This was the first time the tournament was held on a Sunday and it proved to be a massive success.

A huge amount of preparation was put in by all over the 3 weeks leading to Sunday but they suffered a setback late on Thursday when one of the participating clubs had to withdraw. The U14 management approached a half dozen clubs but unfortunately none were available to fill the void. The decision was then made for the locals to field 2 teams in order for the Tournament to run on its original format and what a master stroke this proved to be.
