Youghal under 21 footballers traveled to Cobh Saturday 29th Jan,we were scheduled to play Cobh Junior footballers in a challenge unfortunately a member of the Cobhs team passed away just before we started the game.I would like to send our sincere sympathy to the family.
Thanks also to the players who traveled on the night,Scott O Sullivan,Andrew Curtin,Aaron Kenny,Mark Thuroe,Paul O Sullivan,Ciaran O Mahony,Adrian Curtin,Daniel Mulcahy,Michael Cronin,Shane Spillane,Keith Mc Carthy,Dylan Power,David O Mahony,James O Mahony,Jason Lane,Orhan Brennan.
Sunday 30th January we played Grange from just outside Fermoy,this game was played at the top field in Youghal at 3 pm.We had a few different players wore the Youghal jersey because of other commitments.A few more changes were made to the team but we are stating to show signs of jelling a real good team(You wont want to missing any matches training from now on,there's starting to be real pressure for positions1!!!)
We were second to the ball for long stages in the game bur we improved as the game progressed.In the backs Ciaran was showing signs of getting comfortable with his new position along with his wing back colleges Paul and Adrian (Adrian on the day got 3 points from play).Aaron was solid out at full back with Andrew and Killian cleaning up everything around them.Conor and Michael worked thier sock off at midfield creating a lot of scoring opportunities in the game,but the O Mahony brothers from Rhincrew stole the show scoring 3/6 between them.David and James caused a lot of problems for their defence,a lot of credit must go to David O Mahony and Orhan Brennan who just out of under 16 grade.
