TUESDAY 18th May……
The first match of the season was at home to Moorefield. Due to unavailability of our home ground on the night, the Team Manager was successful in securing the use of The Gael Scoil Pitch on The Green Road. The team were very grateful that The Gael Scoil Board of Management were able to accomodate the launch of the Under 10 Campaign.
The game was played with great energy as a challenge match. Mother Nature seemed like she had reverted back to the middle of winter for the entirety of the game, but it did not stop the enthusiasm of both teams to provide an honest battle.
With a Panel of 21, Athgarvan used the opportunity to ensure that all players at least got half a game. With the rain beating down, the subs did very well on the bench and are to be commended for their team spirit. Let it not be forgotten that the teams supporters were loyal to the cause and remained entrenched on the sideline until the final whistle.
Playing Moorefield is always an exciting prospect and with that in mind, Athgarvan are looking forward to a return match at some stage over the coming months, when it is anticipated that the challenge from Moorefield will be far greater and conducted with a completely different level of intensity.
The first league match is scheduled for next tuesday 25th May v Monasterevin at home. Details to follow by text.
