Under 10 Blitz

2015-09-12 14.32.08

Knockmore invited a team of our u10s to play in their annual blitz last Saturday. This competition involves 24 clubs from around the county and is a credit to Knockmore GAA.

The Swinford team played very well and ended up winning their section.  They are just one team from our panel of 35 u10s and the entire u10 panel has shown great application and attitude this year. They improve with every game and we can look forward to seeing them wearing the Black & Red for the next few decades!

A special word of thanks must go out to the coaches on the day – James McNicholas, Ray Gilmore, Thomas Tuffy & Michael Devaney – and to all the underage coaches that are doing such great work for the future of the club, from u6 upwards.

East Mayo Minor A Final Swinford v Charlestown

11057209_10204271455138804_687919455659186201_n

A very good game between two evenly matched teams was palyed this evening in what was monsoon conditions. The rain that has fallen all day got worse as the game threw in under lights at the Connacht Centre of Excellence in  Bekan.

Charlestown started the game straight out of the blocks and were a point up in the first minute which was soon followed by a second.

After four minutes Johnny Burke got our first score from a free won by himself and this was soon followed by a second from Sean Prendergast.

Jonathan Giblin knocked over a ball to give Charlestown the lead once again before James Devaney scored a great point from out on the right to level the game and Joshua Smith from the dead ball gave us the lead for the first time.

After thirteen minutes Charlestown had the ball in the back of the net and they quickly followed with two points to leave them leading by four.

Johnny Burke then kicked two frees over to reduce the lead before Charlestown got another point to leave the score at half time:

Swinford 0-6 Charlestown 1-6

A lot of chances had come our way in the first half but were not put away, yet the game was evenly poised.

Ryan Convey got the second half off to a great start with a point in the first minute but the game then entered a quiet time and there was no score for the next ten minutes until Charlestown scored a free.

We then took a foothold in the game and rattled off the next four points to take the lead, points from Johnny Burke (F), Shane Fallon, Johnny Burke again with a great run by himself breaking countless tackles to level the game and then a fine point from Jamie Carney to put us one ahead.

Midway through the half and we were in control but this is a good Charlestown side and they leveled the game from a free after 18 minutes. An attempt at a point from Johnny Burke landed in the hands of James Devaney and he made sure with a nice point.

The turning point in the match then came with a great save from Jonathan Giblin but Charlestown soon had the game level with another free.

Then our time came and a goal from James Devaney and a point from Shane Fallon had us four clear going into the last five minutes and gave us a bit of comfort. Charlestown came back at us and threw everything into those last five minutes but could only get two points for their trouble and when John Glavey blew the final whistle it was a relieved Swinford team that celebrated on a final score of

Swinford 1-13 Charlestown 1-11

For a game played in terrible wet conditions it was a fine spectacle and a credit to all the players involved on both teams. Its been a few years but the Michael Durkin cup rests in Swinford tonight. Well done to all the players and management.

Swinford: Burke 0-5, Devaney 1-2, Fallon 0-2, Prendergast, Smith, Convey, Carney 0-1 each.
