League Titles For GB, Feenagh

News ...

U/12 Boys Div 2

GB Rovers are the division two league winners after their three one win away to Breska Rovers A on Saturday last. GB needed to win one of their two remaining games to win the league and they did so with a game to spare. GB again played some nice football in testing weather conditions and they carved out a three nil lead with goals from Pa Dillon, Lee Mulvihill and Donnadh Daly. Breska got a consolation late on with a Gerry Moroney penalty. GB won their opening game of the season three one at home to Athea Utd and in their second game lost one nil away to Shountrade. Since then they have won all of their league games, a run of thirteen wins and there is no doubt they are deserving league champions.

After the match Tom Ambrose from The Limerick Desmond Schoolboys/Girls League presented the GB Rovers captain Lee Mulvihill with the league trophy.

Elsewhere in the division Askeaton lost five three at home to Shountrade despite goals from John Connors (2) and Terry Harty. Athea Utd were five nil home winners over Ferry Rangers.

U/12 Boys Div 3

Feenagh eventually clinched the division three title after a tough campaign between themselves and Rathkeale throughout the season. The maths were simple on Saturday, win at home to Creeves Celtic and the title was theirs with a game to spare. From the off Feenagh took the game to Creeves and eventually made the breakthrough midway through the half with a sublime finish from Billy O'Gorman. A Jack Morrissey penalty extended the lead before Kieran O'Connor made it three nil before the interval. In the second half Kieran completed his hat trick and sandwiched in between these goals was a goal from Sean Holmes. Creeves got one back with a penalty in the closing minutes.

An impressive season for this Feenagh side who have so far remained unbeaten with ten wins and one draw with one game left. Hard to argue with these statistics.

After the match Charlie Boyle from The Limerick Desmond Schoolboys/Girls League presented the Feenagh captain Shane Linehan with the league trophy.
