Skryne Boys U13’s get a taste of Pella GAA in Trim.

Skryne U13’s got a taste of Pella. A game that they have never playyed before and the only way to describe it is a cross over of Basketball & Galeic Football. It a great game to lay and with a high tempo and fast movement, Tackling is key and dispossession of the opposition and a fast attack is what wins you games. Like Basket Ball if you Score into the Large Hoop outside the “D” you get three points, Games are Five Minutes aside and also there is double points when the Music is played. Luckily for the lads they didnt think they were at a disco and continued with play. When the Music plays it called “Power Play” when your scores are doubled.

This is a fantastic game and the U13’s of Skryne took to it like “Ducks to Water”. They played Na Fianna first along with Trim that had two teams and also Ballivor & neighbours Seneschalstown. Skryne won 4 of there Five games. It wasnt all about winning but adapting to the new skills of a game that is played at a very fast pace.

Skryne GFC would like to thank Trim GAA for the invite and also have to compliment them on there fantastic facilities. Also thanks to Sarah who is the Trim GPO and Damien Sheridan who refereed the games.
