U10 End-of-Season Report
Our U10’s concluded a successful season on Thursday evening, 18th October. A quick match was followed by refreshments in the clubhouse and a presentation of a beanie hat embroidered with the Kilmeena crest, along with a team photo, to every player.
Our GoGames fixtures this season involved matches against Tourmakeady, Louisburgh, Islandeady and Burrishoole and our lads acquitted themselves very well, usually finishing on top in most of the encounters.
We had four blitzes this season starting with the Paddy Golden blitz in June. We competed in the second division and quickly found ourselves in the final following a series of easy wins. Unfortunately we narrowly lost - by two points - to Islandeady in the final.
Our next blitz was for the Padraig Mulroe Cup in Tourmakeady in July. Having battled heroically in the early rounds, we made it to our second blitz final of the season, eventually losing to the hosts.
We finished runner-ups - for the third time this season! - to Achill in our third blitz final, the Gearóid Murphy Memorial Cup in Achill.
Blitz number four took us to Balla where we failed to get out of our group. Such were our numbers, we effectively had to field two teams per game.
Each training session this season was very well attended and we were generally pleased with the progress of our players over the season. At our final session we gave verbal feedback to each player on their strengths and areas in which they need to improve.
We wish our older lads the best of luck with the U12s next year and look forward to welcoming the new batch from the U8s.
