Juveniles Notes

Juniors & U8s 
Training as usual 

Inniskeen internal league 2017 results. Cup final Munster 6-4, connacht 5-2 Shield final Leinster 2-9, ulster 3-4.  U10's are finished up for the year We are going to GR8 on 7th Oct bus leaving inniskeen at 15:20 U12s Training as usual 

The U16 lads ended on a high last Saturday by beating Emyvale in the League final 3-11 to 2-8. The game was a fiercely competitive and very physical match. And whilst the guys played great football thru the season this game was won on hard graft, excellent discipline and the ability to take their scores when presented. Team captain Sean Jones lead by example- scoring 2-8. Conor Gernon chipped in with 1-2. Gareth Burns came off the bench to score a point that helped the team pull away late on. Heading towards Half time we trailed by 4 points. A goal by Jones with the last kick of the half made a massive difference. Playing with the wind and numerical advantage in second half the team as a whole were much better. Shane Hanratty and Dylan Mullholland battled well. Calum Quigley showed good skills at the back and Conor Downey relished the physical exchanges. This meant they won the Championship and League Double, going through the whole season winning every game. They are a credit to the club and their families. Well done to all involved.
