Erin’s Own vs Charleville
We played our first Junior Football League game of 2013 on Sunday 17th at 4.00pm in Charleville.
Due to a multiplicity of factors [some more credible than others !] we managed a total squad of 15 players, on the day.
A strong opposing wind, saw us down , 1. 5 to a single point within 10 minutes of the start.
However, we settled down and by half time looked like we could win. For a team that hadn’t touched a football since The Fall, the lads displayed great savvy and there were some good passages of play.
Two goals from Cian O’Callaghan, a penalty scored by Eoghan Murphy and a “lobbed” ball by Shane Murphy, plus some decent points cemented victory with a 4 10 to 1 10 scoreline.
All in all, a good start and encouragement to get a large squad at GCC on Sunday next at 3pm for engagement with Mitchelstown.
