Player of the Match;
On a damp and windy Sat afternoon Carrigtwohill United U11s travelled to Carrigaline to play this seasons opening fixture in their league. We had a very healthy panel of 17 players to play two 7v7 twin games. After going through our warm up led by coach Gavin the boys were ready and eager to play. Both clubs played the games in tremendous spirit while adhering to the FAI guidelines of playing out from the back and trying to pass the ball on the deck through the thirds.
Some silky skills, fancy footwork and outstanding individual goals were accompanied with no nonsense defending and tough tackles as every ball was fiercely contested. Credit to both sets of players, coaches and parents for the manner in which they conducted themselves.
Daragh and Mantas shone for one side while John Paul and Adam Lee impressed for the other, well done to all involved.
