KILMACOW SOCCER CLUB - It wasn’t a good weekend for the club as both our Under 11s and Under 13s were defeated. The Under 11s lost 2-1 away to Tramore but it was a good display from this squad and can consider themselves a bit unlucky. Anthony Dunphy scored the goal. All players in the squad were present and that’s a good sign as they look forward to the next match.
The Under 13s lost 3-1 away to Kilmacthomas. This wasn’t a good performance. The lads didn’t defend particularly well and in truth the home side wanted it more. On the plus side Keith Butler scored a fine goal finishing a Patrick Dollard free kick to give the lads hope as it brought them back into the match from 2-0 down. However it was the home side who scored next to finish the match. All players in the squad got to play in this match.
Fixtures: On Saturday next our Under 12s and Under 14s will be in action. The U12s are at home to Villa, kick off 10.30 while the U14s are away to Ferrybank with an 11.45 kick off. A date for your diary is Monday 4th February. The Club will host a table quiz in the Fox’s Den and we look forward to having a big turnout of club members and friends.
