Erin’s Own News 30th May 2012


Our under 10s entertained O Loughlin Gaels in the 3rd round of the county Go
Games on Saturday morning last in sun drenched Ballycomey. All clubs have
two teams playing with the emphasis on fun and participation with all
players playing and no subs. There was a fantastic sprinkling of skill and
endeavour shown by all the players in the two games with quality striking
and score getting in abundance. Team blue for Erin’s Own had a fantastic
battle with their city rivals with only a couple of scores separating the
teams at the final whistle. The same result befell the Erin’s Own White team
also. With great coaching work going on at all levels in the club the future
certainly looks bright and with the great enjoyment that the children get
from playing the game it is a win win for all those involved. The teams on
Saturday were. Luca Downey, Darragh O Rourke, Dylan Leigh, Brian Holland,
Kevin Holland, Jamie Maher, Kevin Smyth, Ashley Kerr, Lee Holden, Tiernan O
Neill, Cathal O Reilly, James Hogan, Liam Doyle, James Kenny, John Kenny,
Ewan Connery, Michael Rowe,  Ciaran Meagher, Adam Stone, Kyle Smyth, Tommy
Coogan, Alan Smyth, David Allen, Jack Brennan.
