U12 have great day out at Ballygarret Blitz


Shelmalier Under 12’s went to Ballygarret on Sunday May 31st to take part in a blitz organised by Realt na Mara, Ballygarret.

  10 players in all travelled for a 10-a-side tournament, they were, Linzi Lanigan- Captain for the day, Gemma Fox, Katie McGuire, Chloe Mahon, Amy Doyle, Kara Doyle, Leanne Corrigan, Roisin Doolin, Susan Birney-Gossage and Vicky Connell.

The played Ballygarret A in their first game and were defeated, then they played Clonee and were victorious.  They played Adamstown, in the Semi-Final and put on a fine display to qualify for the A final. 

However it was evident that having no subs for the day took it toll and despite a valiant effort they went down to a strong Ballygarret A Team.

Very Well done to all ten players who played very well in the heat and glorious sunshine.  Thanks to Sharon, our selector and also to Joe, Mick and Myles who helped out on the day, and to the parents who travelled to support their daughters.
