Shels Girls Represent Wexford at U12 Leinster Blitz

Leanne Corrigan, Aoife Birney and Gemma Fox represented Shelmalier Ladies FC on the Wexford teams in Carlow on Monday June 1st.

The panel was divided into two teams, Wexford played in Division 1 and Loch Gorman in Division 4.  Leanne started mid-field for Wexford who played Dublin A, Laois A, Kildare A and Meath A.  They were unsuccessful in their games however they were only narrowly defeated by Laois and Kildare.

Gemma wore the No 9 jersey and Aoife the No.5, for Loch Gorman who defeated Laois B in their first game, they came up against tougher opposition in The Lily Whites, in the second game but got away from them in the 2nd half.  They played Carlow in the third game, which they also won and so qualified for the Division final where they came up against The Lily Whites again.  Similar to the first game it was very even in the first half and scores were level at half time, however, Loch Gorman played great in the second half and won the final 4-5 to 1- 2.  Congratulations to all involved on the day, the girls had a good day in brilliant sunshine.
