WE DID IT !! What an evening and what a game of football as our lads defeated St. Edwards on a scoreline of 2-11 to 1-13. It was a relentless game from the off as both teams gave everything. It would have been easy to panic as St. Edwards reeled in our 5 point lead to hit the front with just minutes remaining, but our boys don’t do panic as they worked their way up the field to engineer a goal with our last attack of the game. There was still time for another point from Edwards to close the gap to 1 and after an another attack was brilliantly defended by our lads, the cup was ours. This made Roy of the Rovers look run of the mill !! Massive congrats to all our players for such a composed, skillful, brave display. Huge thanks to the management for all their hard work and to all parents and supporters for cheering us on throughout. Commiserations to St. Edwards who played their part in a brilliant game.
