Our junior team with a depleted squad had a good win over Ferns St. Aidans 2nd team today. 1-14 to 2-7.
After a shaky start, the Shels gradually came back into the game. Ferns played with 7 in the backs and it made life difficult for our forwards. Chris Gordon was in excellent form and was one of our best players on the day. Johnny Campbell was solid in goal and Colm Tynan staunch in defence at full back. Cathal Gaule and John Foxy Redmond did Trojan work at midfield whilst Kevin O’Leary scored the point of the year from about 80 yards out. Willie O’Shaughnessy scored the goal and with points from Ibar Murphy (0-7), John Redmond, Chris Gordon, Kevin O’Leary, & Des Kehoe meant Shels have set up a semi final showdown with Rapparee’s.
Team: Johnny Campbell, Stephen Whelan, Colm Tynan, John Kelly, Conor Tobin, Colin Kehoe, Kevin O’Leary, Willie O’Shaughnessy, Ronan Kavanagh, Chris Gordon, Ibar Murphy, Des Kehoe, Glen Murphy. Sub Mick Kelly.
