U16s & U12s Pick Up Wins

Aug. 19, 2012

It was a good weekend for the Youth of Belcoo O'Rahilly's as both the Under 16 and Under 12 teams picked up vicotries. On Friday the Under 16s recorded their first win of the season. This is an exceptionally young Belcoo team with all but one player (Derek Furey) who fielded on Friday eligible to play at Under 16 level in 2013. The under 16s ran out comfortable winners against Coa in a very sporting encounter.

On Saturday the 18th August was the clash of Under 12 rivals, Belcoo and Erne Gaels. This game was played in front of a large crowd in near perfect conditions at a sunny Belcoo. The game was even for the first 10 minutes with Belcoo proving quite wasteful in front on goals. However, after this it was all one way traffic with Erne Gaels having no answers for the excellent Belcoo team.

By half time score Belcoo held a 5-6 to 0-1 lead. The home side continued their total dominance in the second half and they enjoyed the luxury of being able to give a number of B players an opportunity to taste their first Under 12 A competitive football.

The majority of the scores came from midfielders Ciaran Flanagan and Conor McAloon. Other scorers included Shane Doherty, Oisin Leonard, Lawrence McKeown, Mark Ferguson, Emmett McGuinness, Dermot Burns and Dara Flanagan. There was solid performances from defenders Oran McCann and the excellent Damien McElgunn.

Belcoo ran out very comfortable winners and now have a two week gap before returning to league action. After the game the team give a loud round of applause to team members Ciaran and Dara Flanagan for their committment to the team, as they had travelled from Aranmore Islands, Donegal on the three occasions in August especially to play for the under 12s in the league.

The Belcoo panel for this game - Oisin McGrath, Shane Doherty (0-1), Dara Flanagan (0-1), Oran McCann, Lawrence McKeown (0-1), Damien McElgunn, Ciaran Flanagan (6-4), Dermot Burns (0-2), Conor McAloon (3-6), Fiachra McAloon, Oisin Leonard (0-1), Mark Ferguson (1-0), Emmett McGuinness (1-0), Josh killilea, Arlene Furey, Oisin O'Loughlin, Cormac McHugh, Jamie Ray, Conor McKeown, Niamh McAloon and Ciana McGrath.
