Under 10’s – Cup Final
Newcastle West A 2 Feenagh 0
Feenagh’s young guns can hold their heads high after matching their
higher ranked opponents every step of the way in the under 10 cup
final. The skies were overcast as the game kicked off but thankfully
the rain held off. Both sides realised the importance of the game as
every ball and every tackle was vigorously yet fairly contested from
the first whistle. Bobby Donegan was cast as the lone striker and
worked hard in this difficult role. Chances were at a premium in the
opening half but it was Feenagh who came closest to scoring when a
Newcastle defenders clearance hit off his own post and rebounded back
into play. Feenagh also won a number of corners but couldn’t find a way
through the Newcastle defence. At the other end, Feenagh defended well
and limited Newcastle to a few half chances. The sides retired for the
half time break on a 0-0 scoreline. The second half mirrored the first,
with nothing separating the sides. Then a speculative shot from a
Newcastle player took a deflection and ended up in the Feenagh net.
Newcastle doubled their lead soon after when their attacker headed
home. At the other end a good run by Diarmaid Ryan set up a chance for
Cian O’Connor, but Cian was crowded out by Newcastle defenders and
couldn’t get a shot in. Referee Pat O’Connor’s final whistle arrived
not long afterwards and the cup was heading to Newcastle. A valiant
effort by Feenagh against a team from two divisions above them with
nothing to choose between the teams on the day. Every player wearing
blue put in a great effort with special mention going to Conor Healy
who was outstanding all game at the back, winning header after header
and playing the ball out accurately from defence. The panel of players
and management of Ronan and Timóid Gilbourne can be very pleased with
their efforts this season, finishing runner-up in division three and
contesting two finals at Clounreask. Maith sibh !
