Shelmaliers started their U12 Football season on Tuesday night last.
With the high numbers in the club there are 2 teams entered this year as a result we had 1 team playing at home and 1 team playing away. Our home team played Ballynastragh Gls. This was to be a great game of football with all players giving it everything they had. It was a very tight competitive game which the home team won on a score line of 4 goals to 2-3. Shels goals coming from Ryan Kielty getting 1 and Dylan O’Neill grabbing 3. A great team performance from everybody here helped insure the win. Our away team played in Wexford against St. Josephs this also was an excellent display of football. All the boys here also gave everything they could unfortunately this time we got beat on a score line of 5-3 to 2-4. Shels scores coming in the form of Ryan Corrigan 1-2, Aaron Kinsella 1-1, Ciaran Quinlan 1point. There was also an excellent display of football here tonight from some other players such as Sean Og Flanagan making 2 fantastic saves in the goal. Aaron Kinsella hit the post to be denied a 2nd goal. Adam Murphy had a great game in the backs been helped out by a very impressive Corrie Lawlor, Oisin Furlong and Keelan Angood also playing very good football. Fair to say ALL 22 boys who represented The Shels tonight both home and away did their club proud. Well done to all.
