Well done to all the U-10 boys who took part in the Kent Stainless Steel Football Competition over the last few weeks
The boys were divided into evenly matched teams; team black and team amber and competed in 2 different groups.
Each team played 5 matches, with both teams winning 4 out of their 5 games. Both teams then got to show their skills in
Wexford Park when the finals were played on Tues evening last with team black playing against St. Martins and team amber
against St. Mary’s Maudlintown. The games were very entertaining with both of them closely fought until the final whistle.
Team black lost out by a couple of points but team amber went all the way to lift the cup.
All the players were presented with medals by Shay Keevans after the games.
Though the boys may have been divided into 2 teams for the competition they showed great camaraderie throughout and
all celebrated together on the night. The mentors were delighted and proud to see this show of comradeship and the boys were given crisps and drinks to celebrate. Well done again to all involved and to our supporters at the games.
Very well done to the Shelmalier u10 team on winning the Kent stainless steel tournament last night. It’s a great achievement for the boys and suggests a promising future for our club.

The under age section of the club held a football blitz in Hollymount on Sunday
Last Aug 9th. It was a most enjoyable couple of hours with about 60 boys and
Girls taking part all from within the club. It was confined to Under 8 Under 10 and
Under 12 boys and girls.
The Shels U/10 footballers were in action on Sun last in the Sarsfields Tournament.
After losing their first two matches the boys got their first win against the Starlights. The highlight was an excellent point by Craig Parker near the finish. Best for Shels, James Doyle, Peter Doyle and Sean Kane.
