Damien Kearns took his U-12 troops to St Patricks School, Mallow today for their first game in Div 2 of the schoolboys league. It certainly wasn’t a game for the purist.
In a tough battle with defences on top, this one had 0-0 written all over it from the beginning. Chances were scarce, with the excellent Cillian Scanlon having the best of our chances, hitting the post in the first half and the Mallow goalkeeper making a few good saves from him in the second half.
The lads will play better and lose, so we’ll take the point from a tough away trip and run with it. Man of the match award goes to Jackson Kearns; if ever you needed a man in the trenches today was his day..ably assisted at the back by Cormac and Cian.
